I know this is really stupid lol, but my puppy Archon just doesn't really play tug at all. She just sits there and I feel like she is thinking, ok.....so you really want me to sit here with this in my mouth and goes for her tennis ball. It's kind of funny really. Though she really likes playing with me, wrestling and what not and playing fetch with her tennis ball. Tug doesn't appeal to her at all.
