Playtime Means The World To Us.

Friday, March 10, 2017

Doggy play is and should be a daily ritual that you the master should participate in with us. You need to ensure that we can really feel that being with you is not just all about learning new things, but experiencing loving entertainment.

Properly socialised, we can happily be in the company of many people or other dogs and is also able to tolerate periods of being on our own. Too much of either situation is hard on us.We dogs were never meant to spend our entire lives alone in the backyard or anywhere else. Like people, we need companionship to thrive. We need to feel welcome and useful members of your pack. Most of all, we need to play!

When you return home, tired and needing a rest we're jumping all over you, playing may be the last thing you want to do. But try and see the same situation from our point of view. I've been alone all day and you my best friend, hero and companion through thick and thin just arrived home to me. My enthusiastic greeting may be the happiest, most thoughtful and genuinely felt expression of acceptance of you in your entire day. And the best thing about it, is that I am willing to greet you this way every single day.

If you meet our emotional needs for companionship and play, we will feel happy and secure. Not only that, discipline problems will be less and training us is easier as we are more balanced.
When you’re rested up, take me for a walk, play tug, fetch, rollover, shake a paw, throw a frisbee. Spend time every day just playing and you will notice it's not just fun for me and the my doggo mates, it's fun for you too. When you go on that errand, try to take us with you. Even a daily, short period of intense one-on-one attention from you will go a long way toward meeting his social needs. During the rest of the evening, simply being in your company is a necessary companionship.

Don't forget our need to play and expend energy to be the best dog we can be.
