Release of a tug?
We haven't started Koch's Schutzhund training yet, but we have a tug we use with her to work on her bites
She is obsessed with it, she literally won't release - ever! I have to get lucky and pull it from her mouth when she relaxes a bit. I can't coax her with treats either.
1) Any good ways I can use to pry her from the tug - working with less value toys? (We are still working on a "release" command, but she has been a bit of a hard head so far)
2) Is using her tug as a reward going to be bad news for down the road in Schutzhund training?
