The game of tug

The game can become too arousing for the dog and human hands can get hurt if the dog does not know drop it and consider it part of the game.

This is what a puppy should know in order to play the game safely:

Leave it!

Take!

Drop!

Here is little Will in a lesson. We are using one of his favorite toys.

  1. How adorable! Such manners for Nono and Sia. Very creative on the adults end.

  3. Actually my friend and website designer Kendra Dixson was the person who sent me the video. So 99% of the credit goes to her!

  4. Hee hee, well a good friend of mine forwarded it to me so the list goes on. I think it is so cute and I’m amazed at how well the dogs are behaved, although you do see a little help from the human hands so they don’t dive their noses into their dish. lol

  5. yes the dogs are great! I also liked HOW they helped the dogs by pretending it was a human “putting your chin in your hands” gesture. It is most entertaining.
