Do you like to play and have fun? Well your dog does too!
Dog trainer Gail Fisher has been in the business for 30 years and she has taught animal behavior at the University of New Hampshire. Gail says, "Playing for dogs is no different than playing for humans. It's a good mental break, good physical activity, and a good stress reliever. Physically, mentally, and emotionally, it's healthy."
Without the healthy outlet of play, your dog may show behavioral problems that can range from destructive tendencies to attention-seeking antics. Just as surely as a couch potato would benefit from a trot around the block, a dog prone to chewing the couch or digging up a garden will find a much-needed release valve in active play and exercise.
