So I have a question, when I play tug with Hex he's usually not bad with the "aus" command but I never had to teach him properly - he's just respond to me "freezing" and saying "aus".
But lately he's been ignoring the command and just keeps tugging. He will let go but only after I tell him 3 or 4 times. Sometimes I just very gently tap him on the nose with my index finger (not hard) but that's difficult to do because he is so darn strong.
What is the "proper" way to get them to let go of the toy?
2nd question is
I currently play fetch with his frisbee but he will always drop it just out of my reach, he wants me to go and get it. I've tried 2 frisbees but then he just looses interest in the one he's just chased. ATM I just ignore him until he brings it right to me (which can tags ages) but then he will try to play tug and not give it up.
anyone got a good idea how to get him to bring it all the way?
I'd like him to play with a proper tug instead of the frisbee because he's hurt my hands quite a few times.
Generally I have to put his frisbee away tho because he is so focused on that he ignores the tug. (he does like the tug a bit but not nearly as much as he loves his frisbee)
I've been having a lot of trouble to get him to focus on anything so should I just stick with the frisbee (and forget about the tug) because he really likes that toy and focuses on it really well? (guess i can put up with more bruises and cuts if I really have to LOL)
Any ideas or advise will be appreciated
