I'm highly entertained you have this puppy with the same name and same mentality.
It's really simple, you can't play tug for win. When my Otto was young, I had guy friends try to wrestle the ball out of his mouth. No we don't play that way. Don't play fake out with him either. We have to play 2 ball. I have to have one too and they both have to be toys that he chose to play with that day. LOL some days I'll throw 12 balls at him and he decides which 2 he wants. Frustrating dog! My female picks a ball and she'll chase that ONE ball for 20 minutes. Not Otto, he needs to play games that only he knows the rules. He likes to fake out too, especially in the yard. Drop his ball, I go to pick it up, Psych, he takes it.
