Yes Mia is still very young and she thinks clothes, shoelaces, her toys everything is tug a war time. My poor skin babies can't walk by her with out her trying to play tug a war with their pants or laces lol.

Miss Tallulah is a tug freak. Buster too. Actually I was taught tug is a very bonding experience. Dogs in the wild would tug on prey together. I also used to let Miss T win occasionally before we had Buster because it builds confidence in shy puppies. Now that she is 2 and Buster is 1 it is a 3 way with lots of growling -me included - and death shakes. As soon as I say "leave it " they both drop the tug toy (though Buster will give it one last death shake before dropping it). Neither Bully has an aggressive bone in their body and tug is a reward for good behaviour. Tug toys are put away a few hours before bedtime and replaced with chew toys.
