play tug.
but teach to play tug with discipline. when you say release, the dog better release. its healthy as long as your dog knows YOUR in control of the game. when you say game over, thats its. game over.

so just make sure that your dog knows who controls the game.

Like everyone said just get the dog to knwo that you're in command. Tell him to drop and he drops it. My dog is getting better and better with that. I play fetch with her, she brings it back, and I say "DROP" and she drops it. She still tries to yank it away a few times here and there, but she's starting to get the idea. I would suggest just making sure you only use one word "Drop" instead of "drop it" "let go" ...keep using the same word so the dog picks it up quicker.

Play tug and follow Nizmo's advice!!! Always make sure he/she knows who is boss. It will become one of your favorite things you do with your dog. Kangol lives to play and he usually wins... HAHA

When ppl talk about tug being an dangerous game it means they know nothing about behavior! Sorry but that is a pet peeve of mine when I hear that! Tug is a great game but yes you should have rules and remember that toy is yours and the dog is just allowed to play with it. After you are done playing put it up for next play session.

Aww I heard it was bad to play tug too...Loki's going through a mouthy stage (i hope!) right now anyway so it's hard to play with him for too long before I have to leave him alone for biting.

I can't play tug with my dogs cause I always teach them drop with the words "Give me that". So when we are playing and I say give me my dog drop what they have and will walk away lol. So we play alot of fetch instead.

playing tug is good for your dog, but to each is ones own. some people say that it does teach them aggression, but IMO you can teach them otherwise. im an owner that thinks it is great for a dog to live a dogs life, play and grow up in a good setting and live a happy life. if your dog is happy then he will then in turn make you happy...

when you play tug it helps your dog more than you think... not only is it a good physical activity it also flosses their teeth. which is always good, it helps with bad breath as well as strenghten their teeth, jaws and their muscles in general. tug is a fun activity for your dog to bond with the owner, bkuz its just you and your dog. you gain the respect of your dog as well as let it know that you are its friend. but make sure when you are finished, he is finished, and when you say drop it, then make him drop it. they do have to have disipline even when your playing and having fun. and be sure that you stop the game before he get bored with it bkuz he will remember that last experience, if its a good one then he will continue loving the game, but if its a bad experience or a boring experience then he will remember it as being negitive and wont be as into it as he would normally

he is teething now if hes 4 mnths when he nips you let her no that it hurts say owww every time he gets to wound up and bites you they think there just playing. You need to teach him proper bite force as for tug a war pits love it like previous posts said teach him to release on command. All puppies do it say drop it, let go or what ever works for you. Drop it worked the best for Evil with playing fetch and tug a war i tell him let go and that works great.Rember hes just a puppy you have to teach him there just like babies in a way but you need to be a good leader for him and you'll see the love and loyalty they show you as they get older.

i use tug as a good opportunity to reinforce a release command. i will get onyx engulfed in tug and gently as release and reward. he also plays tug with my mothers boxer who is about 3 weeks younger than onyx. paige is a boxer. she is taller and weighs just about the same amounts. but onyx will run at a full sprint with her and the toy in her mouth. he also tows her clean accross the room with her trying her best to resist. neither one have growled snarled or shown any aggression towards one another. i work on onyx non stop and davidfitness83 mentoring daily and applying towards paige also

Absolutely play tug games with your dog!

Pit Bulls are naturally high in prey drive and love to tug, it's a fun interactive game, they enjoy the struggle and they enjoy winning. The important thing is that you do teach your dog "out", and is obedience. You can introduce the "out" command by "trading" for another prey object, not by prying something out of his mouth. So here's how you do it- While he's got 1 toy in his mouth, grab a 2nd toy and start moving it around and say "out" so it's a trade off. Do not pull too hard be careful with the puppy teeth. The proper tug toy is going to be a soft or suede tug sized right for the dog, I don't use rope toys or anything hard, and remember these are interactive, which means after tugging is over, you put the toy away.

I'm happy I saw this Loki loves playing tug now! He never growls or even plays that rough with it haha he's more agressive with fetch than tug of war...I used to have a cocker spaniel mix when I was younger and I would forsure rather play tug with Loki now lol

I heard that tug was bad when its between two dogs, because they become possesive and wont accept losing, but as long as your in control of the situation it should be fine.

i trust onyx but to only a certain point. i would never leave them alone. i even get involved and pull against the both of them so they work together. after they both release it i would throw it accross the yard and chase them down and start they cycle again. onyx loves to chase me more than anything. even if i can run away and recall him to get him to sprint then give him his tug as a reward
