Play is one of the best rewards you can use in dog training, it’s free, dogs love it and it strengthens the bond you have with your dog.  It’s easy to incorporate training into your games by having your dog earn the exciting part of the game by performing some obedience exercises.  Additionally, it’s important that you enforce some strict rules so your dog learns to stay in control, even when they get very excited. For example in Tug, it’s important that they don’t grab the object until told to, they drop the object when asked, they comply with any obedience commands, and most importantly, they never mouth or bite you while playing.
