Play Date

Our dogs don’t get out as much as they’d like. We get busy, and their trips to the park get pushed off again.

We have a large yard, so they can get up some pretty decent speed just running from one side to the other, talking with the neighbor dogs and keeping the area free of squirrels and vermin, but dogs like a change of pace as much as their humans do.

One solution to puppy boredom and inactivity is the play date. Having friends’ dogs come in to play with our guys lets them have a chance to run and wrestle (you want to make those first visits closely supervised to make sure everyone gets along and plays safely), and also tires them out so we’ll all get a good night’s sleep.

Play dates, especially among dogs of similar sizes and temperaments, can be a great supplement to walks, training sessions, and trips to the dog park.
