I had a great play session with my dogs and it was such a stress reliever for me. My dogs seemed happy and content and ready for a rest.
I didnt place any pressures, there were not really any rules (not that they knew of ) and it was about laughter for me and if dogs do laugh I think they did. Everything was kept positive as we can quickly poissen play with corrections and that isnt what is supposed to be about.
Some emotions that happen in play are anticipation of whats going to happen, surprise of the unexpected, discovery of something new and most important the good feeling we get (pleasure)
Playing with our animals helps create a rich relationship and has an incredible effect on the brain in regards to learning. Therefore it’s one of the greatest ways to train/teach our dogs.
So go play with your dog....if you need help on the how I can help you .
