Tug of way - Just fun? or beneficial too?
Playing tug-of-war with your dog can be a blast, and it's also a great way to provide mental and physical stimulation for them. Tug toys can be a great tool for training, as well as for building stronger bonds between dogs and their owners. You can use tug toys to teach your dog basic obedience commands, such as "drop it" and "let go." They can also be used for interactive play and training exercises, such as agility training and retrieve training.
So, grab a rope or a tug toy, and get ready to play! Just make sure to choose the appropriate size and type of tug toy for your dog, and to supervise your dog while they are playing with tug toys, and to replace any toys that show signs of wear or damage. Also, make sure to establish clear rules and boundaries when playing tug-of-war with your dog, such as stopping the game when your dog becomes too rough or aggressive, or when you give the command "drop it" or "let go."
