The bungee portion of Brite's Bungee Bar Tug is a handle made from soft-touch nylon covering two pieces of shock cord. It is designed to act as a shock absorber between you and the dog so that you'll be more comfortable while tugging and to provide exciting resistance to the dog without you actually having to pull hard on the toy. This keeps tugging fun for the dog, but makes tugging easier on your body! The tension is just right for this purpose; you don't need to worry about the toy flying back at you or the dog.
The bungee handle is 18" long and the heavy-duty nylon webbing goes all the way through the "bar" portion of the toy for strength. The handle is triple stitched to the tugging section of the toy for extra strength. The bar in Brite's Bungee Bar Tug is 9.5" long, 1-5/8" wide, and 5/8" thick. It consists of faux fleece material wrapped around the nylon webbing; there is no stuffing of any kind in the toy.
