Play time every day

Dogs need time to just be a dog.  We give them play time in between meals, naps, training sessions and outings.  Play can also be used to reinforce training.

Depending on their preferences, we give them time to either play with other dogs, with us, or with toys by themselves.

Oftentimes, we use play during our training sessions.  We can either give them a little "brain break" in between exercises, or we can use certain types of interactive play to train them.  Fetch and Tug can be very rewarding games for dogs.
