Steak on a Stick is made for tugging and chewing with high tensile strength for extreme durability. Stretches to absorb pulling force and give dog a “winning” feedback in tug games. Material is non-toxic, safe on teeth and gums, and buoyant. Beef flavoring of the toy entices dogs to play and promotes natural hunting and foraging behavior. Soft, but tough for chewing, and comfortable to hold in the hand. Made in USA.
