I would never advocate playing dominance games eg “Tug” or “Wrestling” with your dog, particular if he/she is one of the more dominant breeds.  The dog is bound to win at some stage at at that moment you lose your Pack Leadership to them, in their eyes at least.  They win the game and take over as Pack Leader.  It might seem a small deal to us humans, but it’s everything to a dog.  Far better to play submissive games involving “Give!” or “Down!” or “Stay!”
