What is play?

When you see a puppy or adult dog stalk, chase, or pounce on another dog, the dog displaying hunting behavior that is play. Play isn’t fun and games .For dog, play serves some very useful purposes. Research has shown that the dog isn’t very different genetically from the wolf. Wolf behavior is identical to that of domesticated dogs at play. A good game is a real workout for dog – not only physically, but also psychologically. It helps a dog to keep its reflexes as well as its muscles in good condition.

Of course a good game with another dog will reduce their level of energy and remember Tired Dog = Good Dog.
