The Mini Teaser is the brainchild of Elise whowanted a compact tug that would fold in her hand or tuck under her arm for her 8-month-old Border Collie Ride. If you have a ball crazy dog or a fur loving dog that are reluctant tuggers or retrievers or you just want to have the utmost play toy, this is the ideal combination. We wrap 5” (13cm) of 7/8″ (22mm) thick pile, 100% vegetable tanned sheep shearling around 1” (25mm) soft-touch tubular nylon climbing webbing and secure with three lines of stitching. The webbing passes through a 1-3/4” (44mm ) Megalast® ball and then fastens to a 5-1/2” (14cm) strip of rabbit fur (from farm raised rabbits in Spain). We’ve upgraded to these super tough thermo plastic rubber balls as they have a solid core so they won’t split. Made in the USA, Megalast balls rinse clean, float, are vanilla flavored and will not wear down your dog’s teeth. Our GRIP ULTRA bungee inserted in the webbing has three times the resistance than standard bungee giving you the maximum shock absorption and saving your shoulder and back when working with powerful tuggers. Mini Teaser Tug measures 19” (48cm) and stretches to 24” (61cm). Large 7″ (18cm) handle easily accommodates winter gloves. Cold water wash, hang to dry. Balls are available in three bright, attention grabbing colors: sky blue, lime green or ruby red. Please allow us to choose.
