Importance of Tug Play

You may or may not be aware of this term “Tug Of War”. Tug Of War is a game for dogs and puppies where they fight (play) together with a piece of cloth or it can be any other object as well. They love this game so much as they run to each other for teasing, hitching, jerking etc. This game is also a nice way for them to drain the stress out. I have heard from so many dog-people who think a house pet should never play Tug Of War because they get dominant & aggressive. Well I do not completely agree with this concept and I would say they have very little to no understanding about pack structure. I have written an article on pack structure and I would request you to take a look.  If a dog owner fairly establishes himself as a pack leader and maintains the rituals a pack leader should do, there should never be a problem ever with his pack member (dog), if you don’t know how to be a pack leader then I would suggest you go to my article “Pack Structure” and get the information. Now back to the topic. While playing tug of war, never end  the game to let the dog or puppy to win, by that I mean you can let him hold the object, let him run with the object or let him play with the object (with you) but when you ask him to come and release the object he should release the object immediately. As I mentioned in my article “Pack Structure” it’s always the leader who should have the object at the end of the game. If you play with the proper game rules it’s one of the best ways for your dog to stay engaged with you & get their stress & energy out. This game also makes a very good bonding between you & your dog. You can play this game with your house pet as well as with a competition dog. When a dog understands the rules of this game it can be used during any sort of trainings like obedience, competitive obedience, protection work, agility etc.  There are few rules of this game which I would like to mention here:

1.       The puppy or dog should bring back the object to you.

2.      They should play with enthusiasm

3.     They should release the object as soon as you ask for it

4.      The object should be taken back when the game is over.
