Default Tugs?

Random question... What are your dogs favorite tugs? Be it for training or play around the house/yard.

ETA - Links would be greatly appreciated

The sheep and buffalo tugs are favorites here. Especially the buffalo one (clean run)

Also braided fleece, which I just make for them as needed.

They will also tug on a looped mendota lead if I present it as an option.

If I ever get around to curing some rabbit hides that I have stores, I'll be seeing if I can turn one or two into tugs as well.

Hudson really likes fleece that I do either a 3 strand braid, or a 4 strand.

Kastle will tug ANYTHING (Wubba, french linen, jute, fabric lead, leather lead, any of the other dogs' tugs, ball on a string etc etc).

Limit will also tug anything but his favorite are the ball on a string and my fabric lead.

Eden will only tug on fabric/soft leashes and fleece/rabbit tugs/toys. One of her favorites is a braided fleece with rabbit fur braided through it. We got it at a dog show vendor. Everyone adores it but I save it for Eden. She also enjoys the fur toys that have a hidden pocket for treats (I've clicker trained her to "kill" the toy to make treats "fall out" - her tug is also clicker trained so there's that...)

Aikon so far will tug on a Hollee Roller, a leather lead, a fabric lead, and a leather tug.

Maisy is really the only tugger around here, but her favorite is Wubbas by far.

The only thing we really tug with is Kyjen's Firehose Bumper. It's actually Caleb's favorite "yard" toy.

Frag will only tug on Fleece- usually thick 3 strands.

Recon will tug on stuffy toys or fleece tugs/slips, but not much else.

Sir will pretty much tug on anything with give or small... Leather leads, orbee balls/rope, slips, fleece, safestix, ropes, whathaveyou. He will NOT tug on jute for some reason..

Tug will tug on ANYTHING and I mean anything. Rope, hard plastic (including firehose), fleece, rubber, leather, jute, you name it. That's why he's Tug.

Oh I forgot about Holee Rollers. And the Kong frisbee. And the giant teddy bear.

But the buffalo hide tug is my usual starter tug...they can't seem to help tugging on it

Mine don't tug much but they prefer their little rabbit fur tug.
