The boys LOVE new, tough toys, and this Kyjen Fire Hose is a great example.
The elastic tug makes a great handle, to keep my hands out of the grabbing teeth of a certain canine who is not very careful!
West liked the toy, but it's hard to get him to play on cue for the camera. Archie, on the other hand, was more than willing to play, pose and tug!
West chased Archie who chased the Firehose...
The only downside I could find was that the handle gives Archie a good place to hook his mouth around, so I'll need to do a little training to ensure he grabs the hose, not the handle! As you can see, he'd prefer the handle..
This is better...
West did get a turn, but on video, not pictures..
It makes a great fetch toy too. It throws very nicely, and lands with a "splat" which is perfect for agility training!
After about half an hour of extreme play and tugging, the toy is still almost-new, though a bit muddy!
The boys are thoroughly enjoying this toy. Because of the handle, I wouldn't leave it alone with them (they both would like to chew the handle off), but there isn't much they can tug hard on without damaging! Definitely a win!
