The Game is “Fetch” Not “Tug of War” :)

Don’t play tug of war with your dog. When teaching your dog to fetch something and bring it back and then willingly let go of it, especially if the dog is not a natural retriever and returner:
1. praise for picking it up “get it”
2. praise for coming back to you with it “bring it”
3. use the command “drop” or “drop it” or “give” or “give it”
*** Don’t tug – hold tightly. You may have to tap them under the chin when giving the command, or reward them with a treat when they drop it into your hand. 🙂
