The Actual Value Of Playing Tug With Your Dog – Professional Dog Training Tips


There’s a myth out there that says playing tug-of-war with your dog can be a really bad thing I’d like to talk to you about the positive things that can come out of playing tug-of-war with your dog today I’m Kyle McCann and welcome to McCann dogs playing tug-of-war is actually a great way to build a relationship with your dog it’s a really fun exercise and an excellent way to establish your control if the game is played properly the second thing is great about it is it’s a great way to tire a dog out I have a young puppy right now and I utilized playing tug every single day to tire her out so that she behaves calm more calmly in our home and then the third thing is that you can use the tug to reward your dog for lots of things that they do right throughout the day food is a great reward to use but some dogs actually prefer toys so if that’s their favorite thing you can utilize that to reward them for making good choices one of the biggest myths out there is that playing tug-of-war with your dog can actually teach your dog to be aggressive or dominant over you and it actually can work in reverse if played properly you can actually establish your leadership very easily in a really fun and non confrontational way the first thing you should do is make sure your puppy understands that you’re going to start the game of tug-of-war if you happen to be holding a toy in your hand your puppy shouldn’t be allowed to jump up and grab anything out of your hand without your permission try to start off the game of tug-of-war with some type of word like tug or playtime that initiates the play so that you’re in charge of when it starts and also when it ends when it comes to ending the game of tug-of-war be very careful that you’re not accidentally continuing to engage in play a common mistake that people often make is giving their out or drop it command while they continue to pull the toy out of the dog’s mouth now unfortunately puppies perceive that as play and the harder you pull the harder they tug back so try to keep the toy very still and boring in order to teach them to drop the particular toy on command the last reason why I like to play tug-of-war with my puppies is a great way to teach your puppy by inhibition it’s important that my puppy learns that when we’re playing tug together they shouldn’t put their teeth on my skin at any time they can bite the toy they can growl they can play it’s very important that they’re careful as to where their teeth are during the entire exercise if you truly understand the benefits of playing tug-of-war with your dog you will find that is a great way to establish control while having fun with your puppy now if you liked today’s video make sure you hit that thumbs up button if today is your first day with us make sure you hit the heart dog and subscribe to our channel for happy training in CSU
