it depends on the dog. You can teach a dog to tug. I would start by dragging the toy on the ground. See if you can get the dog to pounce on it. Let the dog win and carry the toy off. drag again...slowly increase your resistance/tugging on the toy.
My first dobe pup in 1977, never got ball-fetch / she loved tug-of-war though.My boy didn't start playing tug until abut 9 months and he still doesn't really get it. It's a work in progress, lol
