Kong toy as a tug... how-to?
Zage and I are (always) working on our tug skills, and engagement/rewarding with tug along with treats. It's getting there, and she's pretty into her firehose tug, but I like having multiple options. She does love to play with her kongs, and we have a nice retrieve with them, too.
What I'm wondering is, does anyone here have suggestions for adapting a kong into a tug? Ideally with a leather handle, or something nice to grip, at least. I'm cool with something DIY, I just need the instructions! I feel like I'd read a discussion on this a few years ago, but cannot find the thread back. The all-knowing google hasn't been particularly helpful this time around either. (I know it can be done... I see people using kongs for tug rewards in videos often enough.)
Thank you in advance!
