Happy Tail – Agility Toy

(7 customer reviews)


Agility Toys for Border Collies

We’re thinking of those pressure sensitive souls.

Maxi (large dog) design: 16″ bite area, 8″ high-resistance bungee, total length 3 ft 8″.



Tug Toy for Agility

River is a hard girl to please. She’s pressure sensitive to her handler, Brie. She is also quite serious and hard to loosen up for some silly play.

So, when she graces us with her blessing, we know we have a winning toy!

Welcome to our new favorite agility toy.

Saving Fingers

Coming back to training after lockdown takes some time. Your dog’s bite has likely gotten weaker and your timing on cues needs to be tweaked! Don’t worry about accurate toy presentation or bite strength – this toy will crumple in your hand, be visible on the ground, and save your fingers from any teeth mishaps.

Becoming Prey

The long 16″ furry area on this toy is perfect for dogs who are pressure sensitive. It provides movement and takes away the focus required to put teeth on a small area. Your dog can grab and go!

  1. Jenna (verified owner)

    Great toy for my BC girl. One of her favourites, and it holds up to tugging very well. I also love that it’s long enough to drag and bounce around like a cat toy to get her attention if she starts to get distracted.

    • Brie

      This is SO GOOD to hear Jenna! Your girl sounds exactly the kind of dog I had in mind for the Happy Tail. My BC River is the same way – she loves to pounce on toys like a kitty too – and inspired me to design it. Silly herdy girls loving their long jiggly toys!

  2. Mea

    I recently received this product and I’m in love with it! Both my dogs were immediately attracted to it, and enjoyed playing with it. The quality of this product is outstanding and would make the perfect puppy toy! I highly recommend this toy to everyone.

    • Brie

      Awesome Mea – so happy (pun not intended 😉 ) that your puppy is loving this one!

  3. Kimber

    This toy is a lifesaver when I’m in a flare. No need to bend over to play with those small dogs/puppies…a real back saver! Well made and very enticing for every dog so far!

    • Brie

      Ergonomics are important! Great to hear the Happy Tail is not only getting lots of mileage with the wee ones but also protecting your back <3

  4. Cindra (verified owner)

    We love our Happy Tail Agility Toy! It comes in handy at training and at trials to give the dogs a quick play break! It’s easy to pack in a training bag and it brings lots of fun to both dogs and humans!

    • Brie

      Lovely Cindra! Glad to hear your Happy Tail has earned a coveted place in the travel bag and is coming with you to barn hunt trials! 🙂 Thanks for sharing the gorgeous photos and videos of your pack on Instagram, they looked like they were having SUCH a hoot with their new toys!

  5. Jenna (verified owner)

    My boy LOVES this toy. And the bungee makes it so much easier to hold onto. The length is especially great so I don’t need to bend over to use it! Love it!

    • Brie

      Fantastic Jenna! And if you have multiple dogs; you’ll notice it’s great for variations in size/height too, since the bite bar is so long! Great for human backs!

  6. Taylor (verified owner)

    My Foxhound ADORES this tug. She gets a thrill out of pouncing on it like a big kitty cat and, of course, a good old-fashioned tug break. It’s super functional on the human end to boot! I have a feeling I will be back for another of these someday. For now, this durable toy is holding up! 🙂

    • Brie

      YAY! Yes you’ll have a long service life from the Happy Tail 🙂 Just be sure not to put it in the dryer so the fur stays nice and poofy! 😉
      ps – the Happy Tail was made exactly for dogs that love to pounce on tug toys! Good pup!

  7. Brandy (verified owner)

    I didn’t think my dog liked to play tug, until we found this toy! She has a blast chasing, catching, and tugging. We’re incorporating it into her agility practice too, to help build her drive and keep it fun. And I love I can throw it in the wash on the gently cycle and it is clean again!
