Are the Dogs REALLY Playing?

Have you even been at a dog park watching you pooch play, then things start to get a little more serious? All the other owners say, “Their just playing, let them have fun.” However, it is not always a good idea to let the dogs continue playing when they get too excited. There is such a thing as good and bad play, just because the dogs are playing does not mean it is appropriate behavior. We all need to remember that play is shaping our dogs behavior, and certain behaviors can develop into problems over time, both with dogs and humans.

There are some characteristics of Good Play, both dogs should be willing participants, that is one dog should not be pushing another into activity. There should always be a loose body language throughout the play session, and no one should be getting hurt or yelping in pain. If the play is to hard and fast many times things will escalate and the play can turn into a fight very quickly. Pay close attention to whether your dog is actually having fun or engaging his prey drive. Many times all that is needed is a brief distraction or interruption from you to change the tone of the play time.
