This Tug is made of FireHose so it is Tuff, Tuff, Tuff. It works the same as the Jute training tug in motivating your dog to bite and focus. There is one handle which is made with very heavy weight 1/8" thick red strapping. It is very strong in strength. This tug is made for those power dogs. As always no training tug should be left with the dog as a chew toy.
