Dog Play: Understanding Play Between Dogs and Between Dogs and People by Patricia McConnell

Dog Play: Understanding Play Between Dogs and Between Dogs and People
Patricia McConnell

Play is fun, but don't be fooled into thinking it's just goofy or frivolous. Play is powerful stuff, and it has a profound influence on your relationship with your dog and your dog's relationship with others of the same species. Learn how to identify appropriate and inappropriate play between dogs, and how to insure that your dog(s) "play well with others." Learn how play can enhance your relationship with your dog, improve your dog's responsiveness, and provide your dog with the mental and physical exercise he or she needs.

Taped at a half-day seminar in 2009, Dog Play bridges the natural history of play with everyday interactions involving our best friends. It includes what scientists understand about play itself, up-to-date research on the development of play in dogs, how to tell your dog you want to play (most of us aren't very good at it!), and how to evaluate and influence play between dogs themselves. If you'd like a happier, more responsive dog and an enhanced understanding of play between the species at both ends of the leash, this DVD is for you!
