Default Do your dogs play tug-of-war with each other?

I'm just curious... do your dogs do this?
Axel and Nala seem to have a new favorite game I guess I'm gonna have to keep tighter control of our "laundry"... They grab random things (washcloths, towels, my sons underwear...) and rip them to shreds playing tug-of-war I never saw 2 dogs do this before, except lil bitty puppies... they start it equally, one will pick something up and taunt the other to grab it..... they play nice until the item is shredded, then start over. Ima lose my mind, LOL!
I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.

Yeah mine do I have the cutest video of my 5year old female very very gently playing tug with the 8 week old puppy. I have to see if I can manage to upload it.

They still play now, the ropes on our kongs don't last very long anymore LOL

Yes all the time. Sometimes its two dogs and sometimes all can get pretty loud in my house I got a nice rope toy that is about 2.5-3 ft long and they enjoy it.

Yep my guys do..and they also try to hold the same ball at the same time..literally looks like they have make out sessions bc they both want the ball... They are teaching the puppy to play tug too.

Yes. Well, sort of. Pippa has never really figured out how to play. That or she is just too scared to give it a real go. Every once and awhile she and Dharma will get a good game of tug going but usually it is Dharma with the toy, chasing Pippa around and bopping her on the head with it, trying to get Pippa to grab it.
