intensify your dog's interest in tugging by incorporating some chase
activity. Bring out the tug object, use your word or phrase, and encourage
your dog by moving the object erratically on the ground in front of him.
Make sure you move the object slightly away from your dog, not toward him.
Your manner needs to be exciting while you encourage your dog to get the
object and tug lightly with you. You can also encourage your dog to run
toward you by running away to catch the object. When he grabs the tug
object, praise lavishly while tugging lightly. Above all, keep tug
sessions short and exciting. Don't keep going until your dog loses
interest. You want to stop while he is really engaged in the game. Then,
