That is pretty mild play. Max plays with a couple of buddies at dog park, and it can get pretty rough. His two best friends are a husky and a lab mix. They wrestle, roll around on the ground, run and knock each other over.

Winston is getting tall! Not the little pup any more.

This video is so funny Pete! I love how Woody "accidently" falls so that Koda will get close enough for him to grab her leg. Smart dog

I would say that is very gentle play to be honest, looks like they are just having fun. Poppy is extremely vocal when playing with dogs so when they are playing together it sounds like she is mauling Jasper (which she isnt) so I find myself saying 'they are just playing, honest'!
Nothing to worry about in my opinion, looks like they are getting on well together, which is great! :-)

Woody would welcome Jasper with open arms...I'm sure it would make his day!!

Pete


Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

Poppy's Kind of Play

I found this video from a couple of years ago of Poppy with one of her BFF's from our walk every morning before work. Its the perfect example of what I was saying yesterday that Poppy sounds like she is getting mauled when playing. Now believe me this is just how Poppy is she never got hurt and was never stressed out when she made these noises. And would always go back for more!
Its actually the only dog she was ever submissive with as well she is a fiesty one!
She loved playing with Oscar and this was a morning occurance for them, she would also make these noises when she was trying to keep up with him when running around, they would tire each other out and then just chill together.

It will be vicious but all long as the tails don't go between the legs and you don't hear prolonged crystal just let them play its great socialization for the puppy and can even help with training
