    Thanks so much for this! I got to see it as a replay. I haven’t diligently worked every lesson, but I have cherry picked them and learned a LOT. Worked “remedial” tugging with my little Manchester Terrier who was totally food driven & did not like to tug at all, & he has gotten to be kind of a champ! He liked toys okay & his retrieve was already brilliant, but the game was just the retrieve & so he bored easily. Now we have been able to gradually work the tugging in, and he is having SO much more fun; the intensity is much greater. I start with his highest value tug, a coyote tail & then swap to something I can throw. I change toys ofte to keep him interested, and he is starting to be able to tug in different environments, but not much at trials yet. I’m being patient! This course is full of super information & has been great support for me, since I train alone. Love it!

      I’m glad you enjoyed the course! You’ll find that dogs will continue to increase their drive for tugging over years so it’s a nice unexpected benefit.
