There are a million little battles in the lives of an animal lover. We fight for rights, for justice, but every now and again we start a war just for fun- tug of war.
On Tug of War Day we can test our animals strength and stubbornness with their favorite toys and have some fun in the process. This game is a helps build a pet’s confidence and further develops the bond between pet parent and pup.
We’d compiled some of our favorite toys, all tested by the wonderful rescue pets featured on CUDDLY. No matter which direction you’re pulled in, these toys will add variety to your dog’s playtime routine.
Snugarooz Spike-O-Mite Rope Dog Toy
We love this toy for its versatility. With the ball attachment, it can be used for fetch and toy games.
The tightly knotted rope and spiky ball, are great for the larger and stronger dog in our pack. Also, the cotton rope is non-toxic, which means there is an extra level of precaution.
Lenny is bound to be your dog’s new favorite pal. He’s cute, but his rope arms are also helpful in when playing tug games as they slide through his body.
This little guy is great for pint-sized pups with embroidered fascial elements. We love how artsy this toy is, but also how functional the design is.
KONG Floppy Knots Fox Dog Toy
It’s time to head out on a good old fashioned fox hunt- the harmless kind. The Floppy Knot Fox is the standout favorite among so many rescue pets because of design and durability.
KONG toys are known for their strength and this fantastic guy is no exception. He’s also made in a variety of sizes, so he’s great for dogs of all sizes.
ZIPPYPAWS Monkey Ropetugz Plush Dog Toy
One of the best option for a tug, this toy is bananas. With circular ropes on both end, it’s hard to beat the design of this toy.
As an added perk, this monkey is noisemaker, squeaking to attract your dog in an extra way. Our only caveat is your dog might love it TOO much.
KONG Tugga Wubba Dog Toy
Many of know from experience, durability is the primary thing to look for in a tug toy, so we’re adding a second KONG option to our list. Aggressive chewers deserve their playtime as much as the next dog, and these rope toys are there for them.
This tug and toss toy is a great option for dogs of all sizes and is backed by the KONG Satisfaction Guarantee, which is nothing to turn your nose at.
Safety is always essential when playing tug games. Be sure to retire any toys that begin to tear or fray.
