Re: Yanking the ball/tug
I noticed that the harder I pull the harder Bison pulls. My husband has some physical issues that prevents him from tugging hard, and Bison doesnít really like to play tug with him. He will start to, but after a few tugs just brings the toy to me.
I pull as hard as I am able, and havenít seen any hesitation with him on the sleeve, in fact, I think just the opposite. I donít like playing tug with the ball, it is just awkward to me. The ball is slippery for him and I canít get a good grip on the rope. IMO the tug teaches him that it is OK to latch on and I have observed him testing different bite behaviors to get a better grip on the tug. I assume that these lessons he is learning are carrying over into protection because he is taking fuller bites than when he first started.
Also, maybe it is because I am a small (although overweight) woman and he is a just over max size male, but is it even POSSILBE to pull a tug away from a GSD?
