Looking for tug toy

Does anyone know of any tug toys out there with leather HANDLES - not nylon? The nylon handles hurt my hands when we play tug.

Leather gloves would work.

Re: Looking for tug toy

Yeah, I've given up! I wear leather gloves for most tug or ball games, ring training (the kind where the dog pulls), and sometimes even when using treats to train if Nikon is REALLY hungry. Today I ripped a finger open pretty bad while doing something with a wire crate so I'll probably glove that hand for everything Nikon related, lol.

Re: Looking for tug toy

I use the bike gloves with the fingers missing these work great to stop the burning and even the dog from missing the toys and getting the finger.

Weight lifting gloves will also work.

I see some that have the leather in the middle for biting but none with leather handles. Am I missing something?

Lauri, the "Ewe tug" and "Sheepy Tail" have a leather handle.

Too bad both look like Nikon would destroy them in about 1.5 minutes.

Duh! Guess it would help if I had realized there was more than one page of toys. Doh!!
