Leerburg's Online Basic Dog Obedience Course

I am a manager and certified counselor at a doggy day care and boarding facility. I can't thank you enough for the useful information contained in your course. I have been wanting to expand into training for a better understanding of dogs. The most important aspect of balanced dog training that I learned was how to be more in control of the environment and distractions in your dog's environment. Also this course has made me understand the extent of the communication barrier between humans and dogs. I loved the videos on clicker training your friend. It really opened my eyes and made me feel foolish for getting upset when telling a dog a command and expecting him to understand. After taking your course I applied the simple techniques to see if I could train a friend's dog. I couldn't believe the results I achieved using this course. It works! Thanks again Leerburg.

Question: How do I get my dog to bring the tug back to me after I let him have it?

Thanks for a great informative site! With that said I have the DVDs on The Power of Playing Tug with Your Dog and The Power of Training Your Dog with Food. I have a 6 month old GSD I am training for Schutzhund. When I tug back and forth for a bit and then let him have the tug, he runs away with the tug and is possesive of it. I tried putting a leash on him, and giving him small pops back to me, but Michael Ellis, in the video, was telling the trainers not to do that. How do I get the dog to bring the tug back once I let him have it? I have watched this DVD several times and have not seen this addressed.

Thank you!

Cindy's Response:

I'd do the work shown in The Foundation of Puppy Bitework where you have a second person run the dog back to you on leash. GSDs are typically possessive, so you can deal with it using the two person technique.

In the meantime, I would not allow him to have the tug until you have worked thru this with a second person.

On Leerburg's Leash Skills with Michael Ellis DVD
  I had great success with the methods used in this DVD. I watched it maybe 20 times haha before I started the process with my 6 month old Pitbull. She caught on very quickly and we only needed to do 4 sessions. She is simply a dream on the leash now, and I can't tell you how much more enjoyable walks are using loose leash walking (where the dog is free to sniff around or drop back or walk a little in front of you) rather than have them walk at your side the whole time, which is how I trained my previous dogs to walk. I highly recommend this DVD, especially for pet dog owners.
