The "bungee" portion of this toy 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 14" long and goes all the way through the sheepskin to the end of the toy for extra strength. The bite area of the toy is an 8" section of real sheepskin which is wrapped around the webbing of the handle and double stitched. There is no stuffing; this toy is all sheepskin. The bite area is approximately 2.25" wide and 1" thick.
