How rough is too rough.....???
Just wondering how rough is too rough when 2 dogs are playing? My 2 yr old female GSD plays with my son's 8 month old male English Mastiff almost every day. She was very gentle when he was younger but has gotten rougher lately. In fairness, he has gotten rougher too. They like to chase each other and play "keep away" with toys or whatever. What concerns me is when they "wrestle" with each other. They bite each other and bump each other around. One of them generally will lay down and then the other one will grab the other one's neck. I know they are just playing, but I worry about the neck biting play.... I usually have them stop when things seem to be getting too rough. Am I being overly worried....they are both strong breeds and can take quite a bit of rough and tumble, but this just looks scary.
