    For all the trouble I always stuck to using the ball for throwing and an actual tug for tugging. It is so much easier to target a tug and the dogs enjoy biting it better.

    I always felt the string on the ball was to help throw it farther and to do a little tug after the dog already fetched the ball part, not necessarily to hold and target the same way as a tug, because the dog may naturally go for the string since it will anchor the ball better for tugging.
