I am intrigued by this always winning concept. When I play tug it is not to win or lose, it is to motivate my dog for training. I use it as give and take. The dog tugs and I tug back, I feel the dog loose its grip and I loose mine, so I dont yank the tug form their mouths - no fun for them. Niether of us win or lose, we just play. When I say out the dog drops the tug regardless of who won or lost last. I dont keep tabs. I always finish on training on a good note when the dog has completed something successfully - so we both win so to speak and have a good tug. The dog often ends by me letting it have the tug momentarily untill I say out.
