I do encourage him to bite tugs and his flirtpole. When he has a mouthful he is rewarded with the toy for a minute.
Are there any PP competitions? And is a PSA club a PP facility?
Thanks for your help.

So should I stop playing tug with my boy until I join a club and am shown how to do it correctly? I guess I wouldn't have a problem with that but other than the tugs and the flirtpole that aren't many ways that I can work his prey drive (no fenced in areas means no fetch).
I really appreciate all the info y'all. Looks like I have a lot more research to do before I get started. LOL.
