Do you play rough with your pup?

I was wondering if anyone plays rough with their pup?

I'm talking about acting like a dog.... Grabbing them by their neck, shaking them, pushing them around a bit. Pinning them, letting them bite you, etc....

I'm asking because i witnessed this a few days ago, and I recall my dad (many years ago), "roughing it" with our GSD.

Just curious what your opinion is about this.

**And,..... In case you're wondering... NO! I don't do that.

Yep. However, an important part of that game is ENOUGH.

I do too. My husband lets Stosh play bite with him but Stosh knows not to do that with me. He knows what 'easy' means when he gets a little excited and definitely knows enough means enough. Stosh loves doing to play bow, huffing and snorting and racing around then does a little body slam. I know many trainers discourage this behavior but it's fun and I certainly haven't seen any problems resulting from it.

I do, too. I act more like a dog than they do lmao I take their toys away with my teeth even and I get the funniest looks from them! They don't know what to think! Yesterday I curled up on the big dog bed in our living room and Knuckles sat there and whined and tried to pull me off by grabbing my shirt sleeve.

Bingo!

Trainers do discourage it, but I'm dying to roll on the floor with her. When I was a kid, my father used to wrap his arms up, and brawl.

In this day and age, with holistic foods, high level treats, etc... You never know when you'r doing your dog an injustice.
