To use, twist off the bottom lid of the Tug-A-Jug. Load with treats or kibble, and then replace the lid. As dogs play with the Tug-A-Jug, treats will randomly come out through the opening at the top of the jug. The rope serves as a barrier to meter the amount of food that is dispensed.

  • Small: for dogs 10-40lbs, 4.5-18Kg (e.g. Beagles, Shelties, Spaniels, etc.)

Reviews

"Our 16 month old yellow lab loves to play with empty 2 liter pop bottles. I bought him this toy because I worried he would cut his mouth and gums on the sharp plastic shards of those flimsy bottles. No worry about that with the Tug-a-Jug...this toy will most likely survive through the next millennium!

To fill with treats, just twist off the bottom; couldn't be easier. It's a lot of fun watching our dog figure out how to get at the goodies inside.

I honestly don't think the rope pull is going to last very long; especially if you are buying this for an aggressive chewer. However, don't let that stop you from buying the tug-a-jug. Even without the rope, it's still a great and challenging toy." 
(Editor's note: This toy need to be supervised as the dog will play with the rope, and it will probably be chewed out. If the rope does get destroyed, its' easy enough to make another one)

  1. TUG TOY

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Dec 2013

    My Blue Heeler loves this toy, he manages to destroy most within days but we have had this for almost a year. Just needing to replace it now as he smacked it on the concrete the other week and it cracked in three places but its still in once piece. I sign him dinner (he's deaf) and he goes and finds it and wait for me to fill it. I honestly didn't think it would last but it has.


  2. Perfect for Power-Chewers!

  3. Better than the Buster Cube

    Posted by M. Smith on 20th May 2012

    This toy takes more effort to get food out than the Buster Cube, which I like because it occupies the dog longer. I find that the cube, even on its "hardest" setting only takes a few minutes to get out most of the food, and then the rest doesn't come out no matter how long the dogs work it. With the bottle the dogs can get nearly all the food out if they keep at it.

    At first you should fill the bottle so that it is over half full. This way food can come out more easily when it is on its side. This will encourage the dog to play with it. Once the food level goes down food will only come out as they toss and pull the bottle. It took my dog a few days to get to this, but now she seems to have mastered it. She stands the bottle up and knocks it over, putting food into the neck, then she works the rope a bit and manages to get a piece of kibble out. When I first got the toy I thought she would never be able to figure it out, but she has. Even so, it takes a fair amount of work to get out just a few pieces of food, so it can keep them occupied all day.
