sounds like ours need to get together so they know how it feels lol
Ive been reading articles that humans are misreading 'dog play'. While most see it as bullying, aggressive play, rude, and hurtful, it is really just two dogs playing rough.
Chase is very vocal and LOVES to steam roll his husky playmate over. If a passerby watched they would have thought those two were in a real fight. The husky does sometimes complain of the rough body checks, he will yelp and tell chase to back off. Chase will back off but only to be steam rolled by the husky!
IMO set up play dates with your dog with other dogs that enjoy the rough n' tumble. Keep an eye on both, if one retreats to the owner, the tail still or tucked, its time to calm down your dog. Otherwise, just sit back and enjoy some canine playtime
This photo cracks me up
Can I ask, was your Dobe always like this, or did she mellow with age or did it come through training?This is AMY in 100% supervised play, with 2 different new dogs:
This is a trained dobe, in the presence of a very sick dog...no muscles flexed, by the stronger.
- old ANDY, was put down a few days later...this is Amy's last time to visit with a dear friend
This is AMY, with a little 3 legged dog (we babysit 2x/month).
- given full respect & being friendly safe, around the much weaker dog

I really am worried for my old girl and have banned play for the moment until I feel Toby is listening to me better, trouble is I think she thinks she is in trouble, because she is trying to get him to play and I am stepping in and saying NO!
I'm not sure Fi has a tipped ear - I think you may just be seeing ears in motion in the photos.Awesome pics I like being able to tell your two apart in photos because of fionas tipped ear i think it gives her character

MC is right. Fi's ear isn't tipped. She just has a super long show crop so when she plays and runs really hard, they tend to flop around some.I'm not sure Fi has a tipped ear - I think you may just be seeing ears in motion in the photos.
