Dogs & Play-eBook
One of the greatest pleasures that dogs and owners can share is to play together.
At the same time, dogs view play as far more than simply having a good time. There are rules, tactics and life lessons that are incorporated into their “funtime”. Not being aware of these can lead to problems, not only during playtime, but also in other aspects of our life with dogs. Understanding the rules, and knowing how to use them correctly, will ensure that you and your dog get the most out of your time together.
Written by Tony Knight, this book discusses what play actually means to your dog, the tactics employed by your dog during play to establish seniority and how the wrong kind of play can undermine any other type of training you may be doing.
