O Kick one bottle or ball playfully near your dog.

2 When he alerts to you, kick the object for him to chase.

3 Immediately divert your attention to the other bottle or ball and repeat the pattern.

What about tug of war and all-out wrestling?

These games convey the wrong message, teaching your dog to challenge and defend himself in opposition to you. Avoid these games in light of the many other options you have. If your dog loves to tug, tie a toy onto an immovable object, like a tree or a banister, and tug with him.
