Finding the Perfect Match for Your Pooch
Dogs of a Feather...
This is a chance for your dog to express him/herself! It's easy to lump all dog play behaviors into one pot, but many dogs actually have preferences in their types of play. For example, there are dogs that will always choose stalking or chasing, while others prefer wrestling, mouthing or tug. Some breeds, like Border Collies and Australian Shepherds, prefer activities that tap into their herding instincts. Whatever your dog's play style, make a note of it, and try to find another dog who is also drawn to this type of play. Your dog will let you know whether s/he is enjoying the company of another dog by actively playing with or ignoring the dog altogether.
