    Never use your hands to play with a pup??? Always with a toy??? You always win??? No Rough housing???

    LMAO

    We always play with hands, and sometimes with toys depending on what everyone feels like. We sometimes let the dogs win to make it interesting. We rough house heaps. Thats half the fun in having a dog is playing with it liek the dogs play with each other.

    Well you are very SILLY & hopefully you will never get the wrong temermented dog. Let dogs rough house with other dogs & you would notice in a REAL pack enviroment lower pack members NEVER fully rough house with the top dog. The top bitch will be the ONLY pack member to be allowed to really play with him & ALWAYS conttroled by him. AS the pack RESPECTS him. Your dogs would enjoy a walk in a new enviroment with you just as much & it will accomplish much more.
    I let dogs win too but ALWAYS end the game with you winning & be careful what games you choise to allow them to win.
    I have been training many different breeds for many different jobs for a long time now & can promise you your play technic would not be in the best interest of the dog for some dogs.

    Odd, when I have had a few dogs at a time thmost dominant dog is always a bitch. And I have found lots rough house...its knowing the difference between play rough housing and actual competition for top spot.

    Obviously my play technique wouldn't be the best for ALL dogs and I dont advocate it for all dogs either.

    LOL at "very SILLY".

    I dont think it all has to do with the "temperament" of the dogs. We have owned varying temperaments, and we adjust what we do with our dogs according to the individual but thus far we have never had any aggression major or slight and our dogs are happy, healthy and well behaved....and best of all, they get to play with us the same way they play with each other (though not quite as rough as they play with each other)

    I am silly too. I play with toys and hands and have worked with various dogs and have never had an aggression issue because of playing. I agree you should be careful when roughhousing and what you can do with some dogs you just can't with others. Before getting serious you should teach your dogs to stop when you request them to stop and that's all.
    Respect and you shall be respected. Animal is always right.

    My Border Collie bit me on the lips and made me bleed for the first few months, she was 7 weeks old when I got her. I did everything by the book, but she kept biting my face. One day I bit her snout in response to her biting me (in a controlled way of course) and she never bit me again. I also worked on putting my face next to hers each and every day so she would get used to it. These days, she comes up to me on the bed and gives me kisses and lays with her face next to mine.

    I think all problems can be fixed with patience and time.

    I agree...we tell our dogs "enough" and they very quickly stop

    You really need to get better dog knowledge, a bitch may be allowed to appear the top but when tested it nearly ALWAYS is the dog[not desexed dogs, as desexing can change all that]

    You know all this rough housing is more for you than your dog as your dog would get heaps more out of it if you take them for a walk or teach them a new behavour than rough housing. Did you all rough house from puppy hood or introduce it to stable well behaved dogs?
