|llombardo||My male plays really rough. I have taken the time to observe him and now I remove him if I feel he is taking things to far. Rough play can turn into a fight in a blink of an eye. Until mine figures out how to play he won't be allowed to play.|

Thanks for the feedback, but I understand that the play is rough. That is why I am asking for any tips on how to discourage this. As this is the only way she knows how to play. The daycare staff does not stop the play, and the other dogs do not let her know the play is too rough either, they just keep playing with her.
She is a rescue puppy, found abandoned on a reservation at a gas station during the southern Alberta floods. I adopted her less than 2 months ago, and would love any feedback on why dogs play rough, if its normal, and how to encourage gentle play with other dogs, as she is very gentle with humans.

Wellll...... This to me is really time to use good judgement. When rough turns super then its time to regulate the play. Especially when nicks and cuts are happening. How would you feel if that pit begins to play super rough? And your baby starts having nicks and cuts. And another dog may not can discern her super rough from true aggression. Hope this helps.

Playing too rough??
My 10 month GSD rescue loves to play rough. She will choose the biggest dog at daycare and go right for his neck. She is not showing aggression at all, just playing super rough. Her best friend is a pit bull, and she has left nicks and cuts on his neck and ears. The dogs she plays with do not try to stop her, they just play back, but I fear that a dog owner will get angry with me because she has left marks on dogs skin. Is this normal? Should this sort of play be discouraged?Any helpful tips?
