Puppy Challenge Their Dad To A Tug-Of-War Match

Parents will often let their kids win at games when they’re little. I always somehow managed to outrun my dad whenever I insisted on racing him to the back fence and back. It was definitely an ego boost as a 4-year-old. In the animal kingdom parents are no different. In fact, did you know that lions will often pretend to be in pain whenever their cubs attack them during playtime as a way of boosting their confidence? But it isn’t just the king of the jungle that lets their kids feel good about their strength. Our dogs are also quite encouraging towards their young.

One Jack Russell dad shared a tender moment of playtime with his five puppies. During a spirited game involving tug-of-war, the dad decided to hold back on his strength. In the charming footage, the doting dad can be seen taking an interest in his kids. The little nippers really want to play with their rope toy.

Dad picks up the other end and starts to play. He has five puppies on the other end of the rope but it doesn’t matter – he’s stronger than them. He wants them to enjoy themselves. The puppies put all their effort into winning the game. Dad drags them around the room a bit, but in the end, he lets them win. Once he’s had a little fun, he lets them rip the rope away from him. 

Check out the good times that this little family is having in the footage below:
