Unlike other tug sticks that tend to be either too hard or too soft, the firmness of the Dynamite Stick is just right—dogs love to bite it and tug with it. The Dynamite Sticks are made of heavy-duty nylon webbing stuffed with polyester fleece. The exterior covering of the Dynamite Stick is much more durable than other soft tugging sticks we've tested. The bite area is 10" long and 1.25" in diameter. The handle is made from 1" webbing and is 7.5" long. Machine washable. Available in assorted color combinations; please allow us to choose for you.
