Q. Which tug toy would you recommend using with the new Tug DVD?

I'm about to order Michael's newest DVD. I have an 18 month old Golden. Which tug toy would you recommend. I'd like to order both simultaneously and save with the free shipping!

A. I actually recommend a variety of tugs, for a number of reasons. One is that I don’t want my dog to be fixated on only one biting surface. I want my dog to tug equally well on jute, leather and linen. The other reason is that without meeting your dog and seeing his biting style, I can’t know which type of tug is going to be easiest for him to bite and hold on to while he’s learning to play with you. here is a link that has some of my favorites. The synthetic is usually easiest for beginning dogs to bite.

I hope this helps.
