Playtime With The Rowdy Rovers.
Playtime is not breed specific.
From the biggest to the smallest and everything in between, almost all dogs like to play. Playtime serves a very important purpose for young dogs. In addition to burning off energy, interactive play teaches them how to behave around different types of dogs. It teaches them important rules about bite inhibition and appropriate play. Introduction to other dogs must be gradual and in a controlled setting with supervision to observe their behavior towards other dogs. While in the zone to play, there are no rules and anything in their way is fair game from chewing on tree limbs to stainless steel water buckets. And their favorite pastime is digging. Not all Dogs like to play especially older mature dogs. So do not force the issue. Just like us humans each and every dog is different. Some like to hang out together and some are loners. Some like to play and some don’t. Playtime should be considered as a privilege and they must earn that playtime. In-group play sessions, even under the most watchful eye and supervision, an unlikely incident is possible therefore you must be prepared to stop and give them a time out to rest before the next go around. Playing can often make dogs feel a little stressed, especially after a hard play session. One of the best things to do is to let them cool off with a brief time out to regroup before the next go around. To keep them healthy, put them on a species appropriate diet, get them routine health check ups, socialized, and trained to be a good canine citizen. You will build the most trusting and loyal bond with your champion canine companion.
