Majordog`s Dog X is a great toy for throwing and retrieving, puppies and small dogs will keep bringing it back for more. The X shape with added material and rope ends allow for easy throwing and ideal for our smaller four-legged friends to pick it up. Major dog products were developed in Sonneberg Germany, the Toy Capitol of Europe, through intense collaborative efforts between trainers and dog owners. All of the training items and toys are designed, tested and TUV-certified for safety. TUV-certified means that our dog toys have undergone and passed the same rigorous contaminant testing as a child`s toy. Major dog toys are the world`s first to do so. The toys are tested to human standards and do not contain toxic or harmful chemicals.
