Hello Rajib Sorry for late reply as I was bit busy this week. The confidence level of the dog will not reduce if you play it with the rules.

The first rule is, you should always start the game with a marker like “ARE YOU READY” or any word which one you prefer but stay consistent with that same word every time you start your game with him. Now In beginning try to let him bite the tug so often and gradually when you notice that he is interested in this game, try create some miss bites which will make him go higher in drive for the next bites. Let him bite again and ask him to “out” or “leave” the object. As soon as he releases the tug let him bite again as reward. Remember one thing, never finish the game after he is tired of playing and stop showing the interest for the tug rather stop the game when he is still in drive and wants the tug for play. If you stop the game right before he is tired and willing to play more, you will see next time when you will start the game ,he will be more intense and with higher in drive for the tug which you can use as a reward for any sort of commands. When you want to stop the game,

1. You must ask him to “out” the tug

2. When he releases the tug give him a high value treat

3. Finish the game with another Marker like “we are done”

4. Pat him for a while gently.

Hope it was helpful.
