Thread: GSD playing rough with kids

  1. #11


    Thank you for your input, I really appreciate it. We have had our boy since a pup and he hasn't ever been interested in ruggered play and really just like big runs (we have family with acreage). We don't have kids and we take him around children from time to time at parks or at beaches but never playing football or anything too rigorous which I now recognise got him really excited and wanting to play.

    Appreciate hearing all about your hounds and experiences. I've always had dogs, just never a GS so find forums like this so helpful.

    I dont think you have anything to worry about. Sounds like a GSD having a blast playing footie with kids < who lets face it, are very exciting when playing to a dog.
    So teaching "gentle" is all that is required.
    Tell him once, then remove his reward (more playing footie with kids) if he doesnt listen.

    I see absolutely no irresponsible dog ownership here. Well done for asking for input on a dog forum!
