Dogs, like us, need daily cardiovascular exercise in order to stay fit and healthy both mentally and physically. Play is an opportunity for you to stimulate your dog?s mind as well as strengthen his body. It is a way to channel your dog?s boundless energy, prevent boredom, and allow him to express himself in creative ways (rather than the destructive ways that sometime occur when your dog is bored or anxious). Regular daily exercise not only helps to improve your dog?s mental health and his disposition, but it also allows for an overall happier, healthier pet.
The Tether Tug is an innovative toy that dogs love. It simulates dogs’ favorite game – tug-of-war! Animal behaviorists theorize that dogs love tug-of-war because it mimics the hunting, scavenging, and grabbing skills that dogs have honed for millions of years. This grabbing and shaking play is instinctual an excellent way for dogs to get some high-intensity exercise while channeling their energy into creative play. But their strength and agility at this game can quickly wear out their human playmates. This was the creative inspiration for the original Tether Tug toy for dogs. Is your dog ready for a rousing game of tug-of-war?
