Busy Buddy Rip ‘n Tug

The Rip ‘n Tug™ toys are fun and stimulating, reward-based toys that come in three styles, the Ball, Barbell and Lotus. Constructed of durable fabric, the toys use hook-and-loop fasteners as a closure mechanism so dogs stay busy ripping them open to reach the treat prize inside.
