Dog Play DVD

Taped at one of Patricia’s half-day seminars in 2009, Dog Play bridges the natural history of canine play with every day interactions involving our best friends. This DVD includes invaluable information about play between dogs and play between dogs and people. In it you’ll find:

  • What scientists know about play itself
  • Up-to-date research on the development of play in dogs
  • How to identify appropriate and inappropriate play between dogs
  • How to tell your dog you want to play (most of us aren't very good at it!)
  • Why play can enhance or destroy your relationship with your dog
    (and how to ensure the former occurs rather than the latter!)

With a wealth of videos of dogs playing with other dogs, along with ones illustrating our sometimes pathetic attempts to “talk dog” (start laughing now), Dog Play is a great resource for anyone interested in this important aspect of canine behavior. You’ll improve your ability to evaluate dog-dog interactions (“Are they playing or fighting?” Ever heard that question before?!), inspire you to incorporate more play into your training regimen, and illustrate some of Patricia’s favorite tricks. (Okay, they’re not really her tricks; She taught them to Willie.)

There’s nothing like mental exercise to relax a dog, so take the advice in the video, begin to define “play” broadly (from obedience to silly tricks) and let the games begin!

Who should buy this?
Dog Owners
What is more central to our relationship with dogs than our mutual love of play? (Okay, maybe a love of food is first on the list?) Learn how you can use play with any dog to enhance your relationship and improve your dog's responsiveness, and how you can distinguish healthy play from problematic play at the dog park.

How often have you had clients whose dogs were "just playing" at the dog park, except none of the other dogs seemed to be having a good time? Or an owner who was bitten while playing with their dog? Play behavior is central to good relationships between people dogs, as well as dogs and other dogs, and the more you know about it the better you'll be when helping your clients.

Veterinarians/Veterinary Technicians
What could play possibly have to do with medicine? Just like the phrase "I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out," play can often lead to frustration and aggression. Help your clients avoid bites and dog fights, not to mention having a better behaved dog, by understanding more about appropriate play between species.
