Tugs By Tena Contest–Tongues and Chompers and Drool, OH MY!

Well, it’s that time again! Time for a new Tugs By Tena contest! “Tongues and Chompers and Drool, Oh my!” is the latest contest.

This contest is going to have two winners. Each winner will receive a “Ready To Tug” toy of their choice (“Shayne” “Twin-Tails” or “Bandit” sized).

This contest is going to be a PHOTO contest! Yayy! I want to see your dog’s chompers, tongue, or drool–all the things my tugs handle on a regular basis. There will be TWO winners, one will be chosen through the Rafflecopter widget using a random number generator and the second will be a chosen by me! My favorite tongue/drool/chompers photo will win the second prize. No need for your friends/family to “like” your photo, I’ll be picking a favorite photo.

A sample tongue and spit photo! LOL!

To enter the contest ALL entries must go through my Rafflecopter widget below. If you have questions about how to use the Rafflecopter Widget, leave a comment and I’ll do my best to walk you through the process.

One frequent question is how to find the URL of a specific Facebook post (which is required so we can see the posts you “shared” the contest or TBT on). If you look at the FB post you made, there is a time-stamp below your name that shows the date/time you posted. If you click that time/date it will open up that post in its own window, then copy and paste that URL into the Rafflecopter section requiring the URL.

This contest is open to US and CANADA residents 18 years and older (void where prohibited). The contest opens 12:01am on 2/21/12 and closes 12:01am on 3/1/12 (EST). First winner will be chosen by Rafflecopter’s random number selection and then I will choose the second winner–they will not be the same person. We will then contact you via email and you have 7days to contact us to claim your prize.

A casual hint, it’s easy to share the contest by clicking the facebook button below or you can tweet about the contest easily using the button below.

  1. Neat contest. But the hardest part is trying to decide which picture to enter.

  2. How exciting! Choosing a photo was tough, though. 😀

  3. Archie used to leap and regrip the toy a lot, but with some work, he’s now a pretty steady tugger. He loves fleece tug toys!
    Reiker’s still a work in progress, and tends to wreck everything he gets his maw on. The Tena’s Tug that I played with him with stood up remarkably well, it’s still in one piece after a play session!

  4. I entered the same URL twice.. not sure if I did it wrong or not. If I need to share it differently, let me know!

  5. teeth are my favourite thing to photograph!

  6. Kody likes to death shake his tug toys! I’ve had good success using tug toys in place of treats sometimes during training – it’s a reward, and works on impulse control to let it go and go back to working again 🙂

  7. Kody is a steady tugger. Misty is the opposite- she likes to shake till the death. The two of them love to tug together. Misty shakes it loose of Kody’s grip, and Kody can pull her around the room by the tug. They have great fun!

  8. Skye is a steady tugger who is in need of a few tug toys! She also likes to intimidate you with a death glare as she tugs her heart out. <3

  9. What a fun idea! Surprisingly, I don’t have all that many photos of Shiva’s teeth. Thanks for the inspiration for some new picture-taking!

  10. I have the perfect photo to show off her pearly whites!

  11. I love our tug leash, we need a tug now too! 🙂

  12. Entering the contest! Woot.

    • Oops! Forgot to include that Phoenix is a shaker and a holder-onner. We use tugs as a lure/kill for a reward in training.

  13. Sorry I commented before I read the contest tab on facebook 🙁
    We mostly use tugs for training agility. Jynx wasn’t really into tugging before, but she’s really started to enjoy it and it’s a really motivating reward for her now! 🙂

  14. My Rory loves to play tug. Usually a steady pull until I let him win and then he’ll shake the toy for all it’s worth. I swear he does that just to make me laugh. because if I don’t he immediately bring the toy back to tug some more. Such a goofy boy. Unfortunately he likes to play this game with all his toys. not just the ones that will last. LOL

  15. Hmmm.. Jack is a “regripper”. It’s almost impossible to play a fair game of tug with him because he is constantly letting go then grabbing back on, so he always loses. But he still has fun. Zora is a steady tugger and a teaser. She will walk around the house with her tug toy and shove it in everyone’s face/hands until someone agrees to play with her. Midget doesn’t tug.

  16. Sugar is a study puller that backs up as she pulls.

  17. Schooner and Skipper are both head shakers trying to jerk the sock or rope out of each others mouth. They also love to see who is the strongest in pulling each other. They are both strong pullers. They love to play tug of war with anything they can find.

  18. just found your blog 🙂 Spaz i a “everything goes” shaker – pull, shake as long as he win the Tug of war game LOL 🙂

  19. Toby is now 3 1/2 months old. It was fun looking back & seeing how much he’s grown in 2 months.

  20. Toby is a steady puller at this point. I mostly use tug toys to distract the puppy-shark when he is trying to chew on hands, feet, legs…….

  21. Marlo is a super tugger! When he’s got a good toy I can pick him up and swing him around.
