DobbyDad It could be frustration. It was a new tug and I did not give him any time to check it out on his own. Thanks.

Blitzkrieg1 Likely frustration that he isnt winning quick enough. I wouldnt worry unless the volume and intensity increases.

He is still playing hard with full grip and a lot of pull. Wondering if anyone has experienced this before.
Do you think it's from pain? Hugo whines like crazy with certain toys, you'd think someone was killing him if you just heard it. He just does it, don't know why. I've heard a lot that GSDs are just vocal.
