My Leia gets her 'rough play' with my hubby. He knows that if he gets her really going he's bound to end up with some kind of minor injury, yet he gets her going anyway. Leia also knows she can't play rough with me. She'd much rather love on me, thankfully!

If gunner wanted to bite him, he wouldn't have a small "mark" on his arm lol. He's just being a baby and this is coming from a guy who just got stitches in his nostril when one of Zoeys teeth caught it, the amount of blood on the floor looked like a murder scene!!! In all seriousness, I think your husband just isnt 100% comfortable around that sweet red boy of yours. 100's of users on her including myself has multiple bruises, scratches, marks etc right now from the dog, but thats what happens when you play with your dog. Maybe enroll in some obedience classes to help him gain comfort in handling gunnar?

Griffin punctured my hand with a canine playing tug of war. Just an accident, as soon as he realized his teeth had actually touched skin, he dropped the rope like it was a hot potato.

Ah, the battle wounds from having Dobermans. Mine haven't broken my nose yet, thank goodness!

While I agree it was an accident and your husband seemed to have over reacted. I would start teaching Gunner some self control and not let him get so riled up playing around the kids. It could cause you serious issues if it happens to be a visiting child is the one to get hurt even by accident.

There is an old saying.

"If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen".

Which translates to...

"Don't rough house with a Dobe if you cannot take the consequences, accidental or otherwise."

Does he also think a Dobersmile is snarling? If you are going to play rough and wild with a large, exuberant dog (or with a cat, or any animal), then you have to realize that they are then going to play with you as if you were one of them... they have no idea how fragile and wussy humans are, and since their trusted human initiated the play, it must be OK... so here's a question for your DH ... IF he were to decide to wrestle an alligator, would he then blame the alligator if it bit him? Gunner not only did nothing wrong, but your husband is the one at fault, for encouraging a type of play which can eventually lead to actual injury to someone, because the message to Gunner is that crazy play is cool. And, as was said - accidents happen - would he press charges against someone who accidentally stepped on his toes in line at a concert?

If Gunner was a Golden or a Lab this would be a total non-issue.

Example: A few days ago I was in the kitchen working, running the water and the next thing I knew I heard the front door open and both dogs started alerting like crazy. My friends are like family and tend to just pop in.

The sudden entry scared the bejeebus out of me and the dogs reacted accordingly. I told them it was ok and they settled down immediately.

Thing is, my friend's wife was insenced that the dobe pup had barked/alerted, but paid no attention to my English Setter who behaved in the exact manner.

As soon as I told my girls it was OK and they recognized the "intruders" there were wagging tails/nubbins and friendly greetings all around.

I was really annoyed though that my friends who know me and my critters would be so afraid of my 5 month old pup. An intruder would have a lot more to worry about from the Setter at this point, truth be told.

Tell your husband to Cowboy Up. You may also mention that the entire Internet thinks he is being a weenie about this and it's totally trending.

Bold mine.

It never ceases to amaze me regards this. No end of people look at my Toby as if he is a devil dog, but it is my Terrier who is more likely to have hold of you and do you some damage.

As for folk just walking in, friends or no, I always tell them, you either wait to be invited into my home or you take the crap just walking in brings about.
