Opinions and advice if needed on rough play.
Late last night I decided to have some one on one play time with Misha in the living room. She's 9 months now and 60 lbs. She's a sweetheart of a girl but does love to play rough with dad.
Get on my hands and knees and we start playing, she loves to grab my arms and bite. Never breaks skin but will drag me until I'm flat on my face before licking me to death.
Last nights play was a bit more than normal. I would grab her legs etc and she would mouth my arms but she really held her bite. Marked me up well but the entire time her tail was wagging and she would jump in my lap and lick me.
Question is. Is this type of rough housing a good thing to do with a GSD? Does it also instill confidence in play? And lastly, should I continue to play with her in this manner?
