Q. If you get to the point where you say 'yes' and they aren't that interested, does that mean you 'outplayed them' with it? Should I stop the game sooner?
Just watched the DVD, great stuff! Already notice a HUGE improvement in my dogs "out."

One question, if you get to the point where you say "yes" and they aren't that interested, does that mean you "outplayed them" with it? Meaning, I should have stopped the game much sooner?

Thank you

A. You are correct, you made the session too long for your dog at this stage.
Go back to working engagement in short, intense sessions.

15" Nylon Tubular Tug
$14.00
Here are the reasons we love this tug: Your hands don't get bit as much, there is room for two hands and the dogs mouth. There are no handles for the dog to self satisfy into on the OUT training. It's firm but not so hard that it causes teeth problems (like kevlar or fire hose tugs). It's smooth, so it easily slides into and out of your back pocket or training vest. It's only 1 1/2 inches in diameter so it easily goes into pockets. Our DOGS LOVE THEM.
