In Part 2 Dianna explains the rules that make Tug such a valuable training tool.  When you begin playing tug, you want to have your dog on leash so they can’t steal the toy and run off alone with it.   This way you remain in control of the game and the fun.  Once your dog enjoys Tug, you can use it as a powerful reward in training, asking your dog to sit or lie down and then rewarding them with a quick game of Tug.   Tug is also a wonderful way to teach your dog Out & Take It, which is invaluable when your dog gets a hold of something they shouldn’t have.
