Training Misses During Tug Work

Training Misses During Tug Work

The video I finished editing last weekend is titled Advanced Concepts in Motivation. It will be shipped in a couple of weeks after we get the DVDs back from being pressed.

One of the chapters in our DVD deals with teaching misses during tug work. I thought I would put a short part of that chapter in this newsletter because itís pretty impressive handler work by Forrest Micke and his dog, Elzer.

Forrest is one of the instructors at the Michael School for Dog Trainers in California. We will watch this at normal speed and then in slow motion.

The work in this DVD (or video on demand) teaches trainers of all breeds (large and small) and trainers from every dog sport (agility, obedience, and protection sports) the advanced concepts of how to motivate their dogs.

The goal of this training is to teach dog trainers how to turn a reward into an event for their dog. When trainers can learn these skills they are going to be able to manipulate the motivation and drive of their dogs.

Question & Answers

Question: We got a new puppy to help our dog get over the loss of our other dog. She has become aggressive towards the puppy. How can I help my older dog get over the loss of her best friend and accept the new puppy?

I need help. I recently lost my German Shepherd to cancer, she was only 5 years old. We also have a 3 year old Malamute that is very depressed because of it. Everyone we know told us to get another dog for our Malamute so we did, but she has become very aggressive towards the puppy and I am afraid she is going to hurt her. How can I help my older dog get over the loss of her best friend and accept the new puppy.


I would not allow the puppy to have direct interaction with the Malamute. I’d read the article Ed wrote on introducing dogs.

I would also caution that not all dogs make friends with new dogs right away and some never accept a new dog. They are all different.

Make sure you are teaching the puppy rules and do not allow the puppy to “bother” the older dog. think about your reaction if your best friend died… you may not be really ready to move on right away.

I’d recommend offering leadership and training to the new puppy and don’t force her on the older dog.

I’d read the article Ed wrote on The Groundwork to Becoming your Puppy’s Pack Leader.

For the puppy, I’d highly recommend Your Puppy 8 weeks to 8 Months and Pack Structure for the Family Pet.

I hope this helps.

Leerburg Q&As

Customer Comment
On the Prong Collar Leash™

To all at Leerburg,

I received the order I placed with you today and am just back from taking my American Bull mastiff for a walk with the prong collar, dominant dog collar and the lead you designed. What a difference! My dog is very powerful and was lunging at other animals and nearly pulling my arm out of it's socket and I did not feel in complete control over him. I think he knew he was stronger and used this to get his own way. Thanks to your amazing products, I now can get on with his training and start to enjoy walking him without dreading running into any other dogs. We passed a couple off small dogs tonight and he went to make a lunge and then thought better off it and returned to my side.

Many thanks again everyone!!

Kind Regards,
Belfast Northern Ireland
