I just want to say what a fabulous toy the Jolly Tug is for our dogs. Now to be honest all the cloth parts have come off from wear and stearin but our dogs have had endless entertainment from the extremely durable ball inside. It is GENIUS!! They’ve had it for a year and 1/2 and have brutalized it but it keeps squeaking and reinflating it’s self over and over.
My pit mix adores the Jolly tug; however, the seam on the handles is painful after a while if you have a strong tugger! (Even using both hands, they’ll be sore.) Despite being an extreme super chewer (hasn’t met a toy she couldn’t destroy), this held up fairly well for tug. Once it DID rip a seam, it was toast.
This the third one we've bought for our dog, Riley. It is absolutely his favorite toy.
We got my 8 month old border collie mix the jolly tag, she loves it. However after only a couple of days the rope inside the handle started to twist, and the stitching started to come undone. While I appreciate toys do wear out, I was surprised to find the issues with the internal ropes that appeared to not be attached to anything. And was not surprised the stitching that is starting to come undone. As my baby girl loves it, I will have to get her a new one. Just wish they were a little more durable. I have purchased other toys of similar material and have not had the twisted rope and stitching issue yet
Our 32 lb. beagle is now 21 months old, and still very much a playful pup. I have lost count of how many large Jolly Tugs we have bought, but 10 is a good estimate!
Remnants of multiple destroyed Jolly Tugs litter the house and yard, still objects to chew, or be chased when thrown. Eventually the destroyed Jolly Tugs make it to the trash and we treat her to a brand one for renewed excitement.
While I can understand negative reviewers complaints that their dog(s) destroy the toy in short order, we appreciate that the toy is the object of our pup’s destructive tendencies rather than our furniture or our shoes. Our thanks to Jolly Pets for creating a toy that drives our pup wild and keeps her engaged and entertained throughout the many iterations of its eventual demise. 😁
