A War Between Two Dogs

It's not often but once in a great while Dad will pull out the tug toy for us to play with for a short time.

I'm not a big fan of playing tug-of-war but Maggie and Bruin love it!

Tug-of-war tends to get a bad rap. If you play it correctly, have disciplined dogs that obey basic commands and play well together without getting too intense it can be a fun game both physically and mentally for your dog.

Maggie and Bruin make a perfect pair...

Here I am trying to ignore them...

I'd much rather give my nose a workout and sniff around for Mr. Chippy...

Tug-of-war is great for excessive chewers, it gives the chompers a nice workout. Better a tug toy than a piece of furniture or pair of shoes!

Although it can't be compared to running and walking in the the exercise department, tugging exerts a good amount of energy out of these two chumps, which is a nice alternative to roughhousing inside.  

We are joining the FitDog Friday blog hop brought to you by SlimDoggy and co-hosts To Dog with Love and GBGV Life.


  1. Great game of tug - it is a good game as long as you keep it clean as the say in wrestling.
    Thanks for joining the Hop.

  2. I have no interest in such a silly game, but my sisters both love to play. Katie used to really get a workout playing as a puppy. She would pull mom's office chair with Mom in it around on the carpeting with her tug toy. She still enjoys an occasional fun game of tug. It is a great way to get a workout in.

  3. Lol Miley you are so mature! Looks like a fun time though :)

  4. There are definite rules of honor in playing tug that should be obeyed.

  5. LOL think we'd be joining you looking for Mr Chippy. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Mr. N will play tug sometimes but he enjoys playing keep away more!

  7. Awe! They look so happy playing tug! My girls don't play tug that often but when they do they are pretty good at self regulating. :)

  8. That looks like a great session. Sometimes Stanley cheats and lies down.

  9. Our dear Ellie and Lucy loved to play with a tug similar to yours. One or the other would pick it up and the game would begin.

  10. What a great game of tuggy! Dory and Arty just love to play tuggy too!!

  11. Our pups love tug of war. Once in a while we will join them, but we try not to get too much in the middle.

  12. Wow - those two are really good at tug-of-war!! I've never been good at it - I lose interest too quick.

  13. We love a great game of tug o war! ☺

  14. When I first found Pug he would play tug of war with my mom's great dane. Of course, it was more like a game of Alexa the dane pulling him around the house. :)

  15. To each his own, right? They do look like they're having fun! We used to have one of those tug toys years ago. Luke and Sheba love to play tug, so I'll have to get another one of those!
