    Let her win the tug, simple!! When you are done playing, she will be tired and then you can put her away to rest!!

    If she is really young it just takes time for them to not get themselves so excited that they forget the rules. Something that helps is when she gets your hand yelp loudly. Puppies instinctly know that yelping is a sign of pain and since she loves you and you’re her leader she will feel bad that she’s hurt you. My puppy was a very excitable dog when she was little and tug of war often led to my hand getting bit but I would yelp and stop playing everytime she did it and now that she’s 5yrs old when we play tug she actually will stop and specifically go for the part of the toy furthest from my hand. But it took lots of consistency and playing for a little bit everyday to teach her.

    Don’t use the crate for punishment.

    You teach her NOT to go for the toy until you give a command. Make her sit and stay. She needs to WORK for the privilege of playing with you.

    When you are done, teach her ‘leave it’. Takes some time. Remove the toy, tell her leave it. She goes for the toy, back up the command with another ‘leave it’. You can also use ‘drop it’.

    When she bites your hand, give a stern ‘hey’ (NO is overused). If she persists, grab the snout and hold it closed. Or the lower jaw and pull it down. Can’t bite you.

    I taught a 3 month APBT ‘no teeth on flesh’ this way. She is now over year and if she slips up, I go back to the snout/jaw correction.

    She gets it just fine.

    Start your tug games as a reward for a desired behavior. Tell her to sit, and present the tug when she sits. Be sure to let her have the tug sometimes rather than always taking it away.
    When you do take the tug back, assign a command such as ‘out’ to it. Accompany this with ‘sit’ and if she tries to jump or bite, make the tug ‘disappear’ behind your back, reappearing and being offered to her only when she complies with your command. If necessary, keep her on a leash until she gets it. If you findit too difficult to control her, tie the leash to a fence, tree, or other object so that you can step out of her reach until she complies.
    Once she ‘gets it’ , and she will, don’t be tempted to go over and over it. Always end the session on a good note, don’t put her in the crate as punishment- this teaches nothing, only confuses the issue.
    The game ends with her ‘winning’ the tug for the correct behavior. With each session, you can ask a little more than the last, but *always* end on a good note/win.

    When she bites your hand, you need to tap her on the nose and
    look her straight in the eyes and tell her “NO”.
    You need to put your hand out without the toy and if she puts it in her mouth then do the above command. She may not be understanding what she is doing wrong if all you are doing is putting her in her crate and if the toy is in your hand at the same time she may not understand that it’s your hand and not the toy she is getting in trouble for.

    , I did exactly as you did Michele. I strtaed with treats so he learned the game. With articles, I let the dog have a sniff and then at first I let him watch me hide it. After one or two times of watching, he gets the idea and then I focus on that one article until he understands the name attached to it. It is a lot of fun for the dog, and such pride when they find it. Give lots of praise for a job well done. Part III: More Games To Play With Your Dog!Play The Shell Game With Your Dog Want to know how to stimulate your dog’s mind?Play games with your dog.I’ve written before about different games to play that will help keep your dog from getting bored and help to stimulate his mind. Here’s another great game to play: The Shell Game.Here’s what you’ll need:- Three small, identical buckets approximately one gallon size. Or, you can use empty coffee cans if you like.- Kibble or doggie cookies.- A leash and training collar.- One hungry puppy.Here’s what you do:Place your dog in a down-stay, in the kitchen. If you don’t know how to teach your dog to lay down and STAY DOWN until you tell him to get up, take a look at our dvd titled: How To Teach Your Dog To Hold A Down-Stay .Next, walk into your living room and place the three buckets side-by-side, with the mouth on the ground (upside down). Leave about one foot of space between each bucket. Put a doggie-cookie under one of the buckets. Now, return to your dog, give him your release command, and walk him over to the buckets. Say, Where’s the cookie? Encourage your dog to smell the buckets. When he gets excited about the bucket with the cookie under it, praise him lavishly. Then, kick the bucket over and let him get the cookie. Repeat this process by switching the bucket the cookie is hidden under. Once your dog starts to get the hang of the game, you can add more complexity by spacing the buckets further apart. You may also add more buckets. I like to teach a dog to give an active indication when he finds the bucket with the cookie such as scratching the side of the bucket, or barking. You can also teach your dog to Sit next to the bucket with the cookie. Initially you’ll find that your dog will likely go back to the previous bucket that hid the cookie. Don’t lift the bucket up until he finds the one that actually contains the cookie. HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG TO FIND YOUR KEYS Once you’ve done the Shell Game for awhile, do this: Attach a small piece of leather to your key chain. Spend two minutes pinching the leather between your thumb and index finger. This will transfer some of the oil in your skin to the leather and link your scent to it. Next, repeat the Shell Game with your key chain, instead of the doggie cookie. When your dog finds the bucket that hides your keys, lift the bucket to reveal your keys. At this point, you really need to lay it on thick (the praise, that is) and make a big deal about your dog finding the keys. You may also want to throw your dog a cookie as a reward. Finally, you can start hiding your key in other places around the room (away from the buckets). Start out easy. Place them on the floor, next to the couch, where your dog can almost stumble upon them quite easily. After a few days, you should be able to hide your keys in some really difficult places and your dog will be able to find them for you. Imagine how handy this trick will become when you really lose your keys!
