Push Pull

Tuggo is a one-of-a-kind dog toy that uses a large, weighted ball and rope to enable Fido to play tug of war all by himself or with a canine or human friend. Created by dog owner Adam Harrington, the idea came to him as he watched his own two dogs, Harley and Hailey, trying to grasp a bowling ball in his backyard. To make it easier, he threaded a rope through the ball and watched as his prototype kept the pups busy for hours. It’s no wonder this innovative product was an award winner at the 2014 Global Pet Expo. Fill Tuggo with water through a recessed screw cap to create more or less tension, as needed. For small pups, use little or no water. For big dogs, fill Tuggo up to 20 pounds. Then, sit back, relax, and satisfy your four-legged friend’s urge to play, chew, push, and pull.

    Hi everyone, I am Adam Harrington the inventor of Tuggo. If you are looking for a new one of a kind dog toy to keep your dog entertained for hours, then you have found the perfect toy! My dogs love Tuggo! Just let me know if you have any questions about Tuggo. I am here to help and share my story about how Tuggo was invented!

    This is great - I have four dogs and three are little guys, but the big one loves to play too. She always lets them win when they play tug games, but it would be great for her to have an "opponent" she could really tug against! She is about 50 pounds, and a strong puller...do you think Tuggo would stay grounded for her?

    We have 180 pound pitbulls and huge rottweilers that play with Tuggo full. Completely full Tuggo weighs almost 20 pounds. This amount of weight is enough to make any dog tired after 15 min. A 50 pound dog does not even need a Tuggo to be all the way filled. My boxer Hailey likes hers around 10 pounds. She will play for an hr or so and then sleeps like a baby! @Guest

    Only the ball is made in china. Also we give a lifetime warranty on the ball if it is punctured or destroyed we will replace! The rope is made here in the USA and we assemble the Tuggo here in the USA. @suzette

    We always have customers start with a small amount of water just so the dog can hear the water sloshing sound! As the puppy grows you can add more water to increase the weight for more tension! @Lynda

    Hi yes! We offer replacement rope and you just simply slide it through the ball and tie 2 knots. Keep in mind the rope we use is cotton rope. It is not the strongest rope made but it is a safe rope for dogs to chew! @Siobhan

    Adam,

    I have a Great Dane male about 120 pounds, he is 16 months old, and he loves to pull and tug on things, I have bought so much on line that was supposed to be able to last for him when all that happened was it was destroyed in about 10 minutes,,, Do you think that this will last for him?? ,,, Thor, is as strong as an mule, and loves to throw things in the air.. this seems like it would be ideal for him, but, I would hate to spend that much money on this and it not last is there a money back guarantee of some kind on this?

    You addressed this with questions about a puppy, but my friend has a chihuahua that maybe weighs 7lbs. How big is the water fillable ball, and can this size dog reasonably manage it? I think theoretically she would love it.

    Hi the Tuggo is 10 inch in diameter! We have had even the smallest dogs play with Tuggo. It really just depends on the dogs! If a dog likes playing tug-of-war, they will love Tuggo! @John
