That is very outdated thinking along with "never let your dog win". Tug games are a great way to bond with your dog, get them interested in you (the source of fun!), and teach them a solid "drop it" as well. Like onyx says, you are in control of the game, not the dog. Skip all the pet store toys made for humans and get a couple of good bite tugs.
