I learnt how to make tug toys

Hi guys,
I found out how to make tug toys for the dogs using 4 strands of polar fleece, they are hardy and very soft on the dogs teeth, plus they are a bit stretchy so they're lots of fun to tug with!! I can make them in up to 4 different colours, here's an example of a pink, blue and white one I made for my dogs
The reason I originally started making them was as prizes for my agility club (I have made them in club colours!). After some outside interest I have decided to also offer them for sale, The large tugs are $5 each and smaller ones (for small dogs and puppies) are $2.50. I can also make extra large ones or wider ones on request, POA. Prices do not include postage (which can be combined). 
Please email me at if you would like to buy one. 
Below is a photo of Pepe and Nossi enjoying their new favourite toy!   (this is a large size, reccommended for border collie size dogs)


  1. Looks like they're having a lot of fun with the tug toy!

    I'd buy a tug toy but I know it wouldn't last five minutes with my destroyers. :( They like nothing better than shredding anything shreddable.

  2. yeh my boyfriend's border collie and aussie shepherd are the same, although they haven't managed to destroy one yet! (not that they've had it very long :P) They're not likely to fray because of the material but a dog could chew through it if it weren't just using it to play tug.
