Tether Tug Interactive Dog Toy


Tether Tug is the latest interactive tug toy to keep your active dog entertained!  My two Boerboels love to play with a flirt pole, but like most active dogs, they wear me out quickly.  The Tether Tug is designed so that your dog can entertain himself — and you can sit back and enjoy the show!

Cardiovascular Health Benefits from Tether Tug

Dogs, like humans, are at risk for health complications if they do not get enough physical activity. The Tether Tug allows dogs to play whenever they want and provides hours of healthy exercise.

Tether Tug Provides Play for Dogs of all Sizes

The Tether Tug is designed to be played with by dogs of any size. The durable construction is sturdy enough for big dogs, but adjustable to allow play for the smaller breeds.  Dogs of all sizes can play.  The Tether Tug comes in 4 sizes — Small, Medium, Large and XL.  Select the size that meets the needs of your dog depending on his size and strength.

Tether Tug Provides Hours of Outdoor Play

Dogs crave play and interaction, and when this can’t happen, destructive behavior can begin.  The Tether Tug allows the dog to interact as if it is playing tug with you, without the arm and shoulder pain or fatigue that causes owners to only pull for a few minutes.

Tether Tug for Small Dogs

The Tether Tug Small is designed for smaller breeds that have trouble grabbing a thick knotted rope.  The Tug is the same pole an in-ground base as the other Tether Tugs, but with a braided fleece toy to allow for easier grabbing and pulling and is easier on smaller teeth.  The fleece toy hangs lower to the ground for shorter dogs and puppies, but the pole still bends and flexes to keep your small dog engaged in play.

Tether Tug XL

The Tether Tug comes in four sizes so that you can select the best option for our dog, depending on his size and strength.  For the largest, strongest and most aggressive pullers, we suggest the Tether Tug XL.  The Tether Tug XL is the strongest and most durable Tether Tug.  It is built with the strongest, thickest core, as well as a larger, more heavy duty in-ground base.  The knotted rope toy in the XL is set higher than the original Tether Tug, but still provides the same level of energetic play as the original.  The XL comes with an in-ground base that allows the tug to spin and turn, as well as a quick connector to allow for toy changes.
