Your dog’s love for tugging might be because it reminds them of tearing flesh from the carcass of a kill. Dogs that were historically used in controlling and protecting livestock enjoy tugging games because the dogs often had to bite and hold down something until told to release. Be sure to train your tugger to release on your command!
The biggest motivation for the dog to solve a puzzle is probably the treat. But cognitive toys are also a wonderful way for the dog to pass time when they are alone or when you don’t have time to play with them. The mental stimulation will also tire them out, making sure your pup will sleep soundly the following night.
Bone chewing is a great way to keep the teeth and gums of your dog clean and healthy. A gnawing session gives your dog a way to put their powerful jaws to work!

No matter what, your dog loves you more than anything in this world. They are happiest when they get to play with you and have your attention. Make sure to spare a moment for them every day. A nice, happy playing session will strengthen the bond between you and furry best friend.
