Use the Blast Hose Tugs for rewarding your hard-working dog at the end of the day, or use them to reward for obedience reinforcement; or even just to work the dog a little bit. Make it fun for both K9 and handler.
Fetch & Throw
This tug toy is easily concealable and great for throwing. The size, weight, and density make targeted throwing a breeze; effortlessly throw it at the source of an odor to help positively reinforce during scent training sessions. Be careful when you’re throwing it at a target because it is dense, and can travel easily.
This tug also makes a great replacement for a stick when you’re throwing and playing fetch. It’s a lot safer and it’s not going to break apart and poke your dog in the mouth or gums when they grab ahold of it from the end. The Blast Hose Tug has an option with a rope, which is a great addition for using one or both hands when playing with your K9.
Our Blast Hose Tugs are ideal for bite training and development because they are made from a very dense material that forces the dog to bite with intent. They are not easily collapsible under pressure, allowing for more development of your dog’s bite grip. The Blast Hose is made of a rubber material that allows your K9 to really sink their teeth into the tug and get a satisfying grip, making this an excellent dog training tool for helping to build drive.
The Blast Hose Tug Toys come in a few different sizes, with an internal diameter of either ¾ of an inch to one inch. The outer diameter of the hose itself is approximately 1 ½ - 2 inches in diameter. Aside from the size, the tug comes with an optional double-sided and knotted, rope handle. The rope (unlike nylon rope) is made from a soft, safe-on-teeth, non-abrasive poly rope material. This is great so that when your dog sinks teeth into the handle, which will happen, it’s not a concern.
With nylon handles you have to be concerned about tooth wear or even chipping, due to fraying and snagging the contours of the tooth. Whereas our tugs are made from a dynamic rubber that’s firm yet soft enough, flexible, and ultra-durable; allowing you and your K9 to crank on it during training and reward play.
