Arrived quickly...and just as advertised. The handle is comfy and when the dog pulls, there some elasticity in the pull so one's shoulder is not yanked. I must prefer it to other tug toys. Our dog is still adjusting to the change and would prefer to tug on the cording than on the rubber part...the end almost seems a bit too big for her small mouth. When she wins at tug, there is no hesitation in running off with it to give it a chew.

About

The Story of MOOTUGS

Once upon a farm, Moose, aka Sir Licks-a-Lot, took a long road trip all the way from the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota to the tiny town of Erie, Colorado. It was here that he got to meet his fur-cousins for the first time: Mabel, the cattle dog, and Roxy, the blue-eyed husky.

Now Mabel and Roxy thought Moose had a funny accent. They teased him for the way he said “soda”. They laughed when Moose said things like “You Betcha” and “Oofta”. Well, Moose just thought his two cousins were really smelly, if not a tad country. After all, Mabel and Roxy lived in a trailer on the farm! They even had poopy paws. Being a city boy, Moose thought these two redneck pups were like nothing he had seen at the dogpark before.

On the last day of vacation, Moose thought to himself “How can I bring this udderlicious smell back to Minnesota?” Moose thought if he could achieve this, all his lady friends at the dogpark would fall in love with him. Heck, maybe he could make friends with his barky doggy neighbors! Moose had to find a way.

It was then, as Moose was watching Mabel and Roxy herd the cows, a lightbulb went off. Moose had seen Mabel and Roxy replace the milking tubes the day before and they were now in the trash! Moose sprinted to the dumpster and to his excitement was a pile of used rubber tubes. Moose pleaded with his mommy to bring these glorious treasures home. Mom caved, as she usually does when Moose gives her the puppy-eyed look.

So, after Moose made a few tugs he decided to share and let everybody know what a great new toy he had created. He has since shipped MOOTUGS all over the world. They have been to Australia, Japan, Canada, and the UK! Moose, also being a thoughtful dude, decided to pay if forward and donate a percentage of his sales to helping other dogs in need. Moosie, you're a good boy! Woof!

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Mootugs are not chew toys and not recommended for dogs that easily destroy their toys. If you're looking for a super durable long-lasting toy to occupy your pup, this toy is not the right option.

Mootugs make fantastic interactive toys for you to play with your dog one-on-one. Most dogs find Mootugs highly irresistible and won't want to stop playing. We recommend keeping your dog's Mootug out of reach between play sessions.

Wholesale availability

Mootugs are available for wholesale. Please email Cristen at mootugs@gmail.com for availability.
