Rated 2 out of 5 by Gameshow Rope good. Tags, not good.
We have a GoldenDoodle, not a Rottweiler. She's one, and made short work of dispatching the ballistic nylon tags on the end of this toy. I like Kong products, especially the Original Kong rubber toy. However, Kong fails on this on, unless you have a dog that doesn't want to tug on something labeled a "Tugga Wubba."

Rated 3 out of 5 by KMJS Not very durable
My one year old lab ripped off one of the "tails" after about 2 minutes of tugging. During the next day or two that we played with it, she had pulled it hard enough that the seams holding the twisted rope together pulled apart. I give it 3 stars because we were still able to play with it. After the ends got worn out, I would just tie a new knot. But all in all, I suggest buying something else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by judico did not stand up to puppy play !!
Our 10 month old mastiff destroyed this toy within a few hours of play !! I can not believe how the durability of Kong toys has gone down !! We used to swear by these toys, now we find them to be a waste of money !

Rated 3 out of 5 by HoneysMom They had me at ballistic nylon
As mentioned by many, I had high hopes for the Kong Tugga. Our 34 lb Lagotto is an active chewer so we are continually trying new toys. Some are winners and some not so much. After 15 minutes of successful supervised play we placed the Tugga into the rotation. She LOVED tossing it around and played for hours. The next day we noticed blue bits in our girls feces (ballistic nylon) not realizing she had chewed the corners off. We decided to move this to the highly supervised toy box versus the garbage as she really did enjoy it. The following play session with this toy she shredded the rope within 5 minutes as the rope ends don't seem to be secured as well as we hoped. Overall our fuzzy kid loved the toy and she would rate it 5 stars. Even though this was not a terribly expensive toy I did expect it would last longer, given the KONG name.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RLRK Not made well enough for a German Shepherd
I was hoping that this toy would last at least a couple of weeks, so I have conflicting emotions about this tug. My German Shepherd had the rope torn off and unraveled within 2 days. He still loves to play tug, but now pieces of the blue and red rope are everywhere.

This toy is a very well made dog toy. My dogs have not destroyed it yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PointerParent Gets my two in the mood to tug
My two pointers like these tugs, but we use them for supervised play only. Thank goodness they aren't too expensive as they go through them fairly quickly - they are able to unravel the rope. The tassels are especially eye catching for them, and get them in the mood to tug. As it unravels, there are string strands, so we have to watch carefully and pick them up so they don't ingest them. Like I said - supervised play only.
