This item is a jute training bite pillow. This soft bite pillow works great for training a young dog or puppy. It is a nice step up from the round jute tug toy. This is a quality made product that is felt padded and quilted with three round thick handles for a strong grip. The bite pillow is not as intimidating as a sleeve for a beginner dog but at the same time gets them interested in sleeve biting. The bite pillow is far less expensive than a puppy sleeve which a dog outgrows very quickly. This training toy is not a chew toy.
