This soft, stuffed fabric toy is great to fetch and tug on both water and land. The kernmantle rope handle makes it easy to pick up, easy to throw, and reduces the slobber factor.

Ruffwear partners with PLUSfoam™ Compound Technologies to produce Lunkers with a center core made from recycled foam. And, when your Lunker is ready for retirement, the entire toy can be sent to PLUSfoam to be recycled and reused in new products. Ruffwear Lunkers are recycled and recyclable!

Please note: If any part of this toy becomes loose or detached, immediately take the toy away from the dog and discard the toy.

Floating throw toy

Haven't been able to use it yet still cold here in pa. My lab already wants to play with it. Should be fun on the boat.

Fable + Cypress

Great for Dock Diving!

I think I might love my Lunker as much as Cypress does. It's visible, buoyant, and sturdy enough for her to use as a tug toy. I take her down to the river almost every day and will throw it over and over again for her to swim and go get. The quality is excellent and it's definitely a toy I see holding up for a good while. I also use it for dock diving competitions with Cypress and it certainly serves its purpose in that setting! It's definitely one of our favorite water toys.



The Lunker has not made it out to the lake with us yet but it is our favorite toy in the house and yard! Extremely durable against Lucy's impressively sharp canines - she even sleeps with it. Once we get wet I know it will be great fetching fun in the lake.


First rate

Stoxx has retrieved this from Kootenay lake at least 300 or more times. It is tough, highly visible and floats very well. She thoroughly enjoys every moment retrieving this but my arm and shoulder sure hurts.



My yellow lab Clancy is a certified live scent search dog. When he finds victims he is rewarded with a tug toy. You can imagine the strength in which he bites and pulls on these toys. He doesn't get much play when he's not working. But when he does he needed a toy that could hold up to his strength. So when I came across the lunker I was happily surprised it withstood the test. It lasted longer than any of his other toys and floated too! As well as a high visibility color. Now if I need to activate his play drive I pull out his ruffwear lunker.
