I always used tug as part of training obedience, agility, anything. In the dogs mind, the chase, the catch and shake was the ultimate goal. Treats mark the behaviour and show the dog what to do, but the tug game is the purpose. So yep, I was tugging before and after a run. That was me and Dynamo, now on to a new dog, different drives, I will see.
But for dogs that love to tug, it is the reward, and you want to make all that boring stuff rewarding too.
