Indy Dog Whisperer: Tips for helping your dog play with you politely

Does your dog try to get aggressive when they’re ready to play? Nathan Lowe, The Indy Dog Whisperer, joined us today with tips for helping your dog play with you politely. Here’s more from him:

Demand is Demand!

         – Shoving toys in your lap

         – Dropping toy and barking insistently

         – Demand equals dominance

         – Obsessive behavior causes tension

Claim” the Toy Before Playing

         – Put the toy at your feet

         – Step the dog out of your zone

         – Wait for your dog to relax

Play in a Focused Way

         – No shrill/frantic tones 

         – Draw focus to your face

         – Play like it’s a job
