We've played tug with Luna since she was about 6 months and in the early stages we taught a "drop" cue and a "take it" cue. We also removed the toy after playing so she didn't get too possessive over it. It was a toy just for playing tug with her humans. However.....bad trainer alert......we got complacent and haven't been consistent with keeping up with these rules, so unsurprisingly her manners have started to disappear. She's not possessive (if she wrestles control of it then she always brings it straight back to play) but instead of tugging it, she prefers to grab it, shake it, and then come towards us (rather than pulling away), grabbing more and more of the toy with her teeth and jumping and pawing it with her front paws until she inevitably accidentally scratches or bites our hand which (a) REALLY hurts and (b) signals the end of the game which is a shame for Luna as it's nice for her to have that interaction. I've bought an extra long tug rope to keep our hands at a distance, but she just grabs for the middle instead and then works her way up so it's not really solved the problem. So, how on earth do you teach a dog to pull backwards and tug rather than move forward and snatch. I've started marking and praising when she tugs, and marking & rewarding when she "drops" when I ask. Is there anything else I should consider? I don't really want anyone else playing tug with her at the moment in case they get the rough end of her teeth.
