    Default Bubba and Sheldon playing



    Sheldon came in from outside and wanted to play so Bubba played with him. Goes to show even if Sheldon is growling it sounds mean but my kids can tell he is playful Sheldon doesn't have an aggressive bone in his body. I especially love it when I say Drop it he does.

    Its so crazy how mean they look ... and sound when they are doing that.

    I still think Baxter's brain switches into a different mode, genuinely aggressive. I have yet to test it out because Im not interested in my hand bleeding, but when he gets worked up, I don't see the same fat little friendly piggy anymore.
    Takes him a minute to calm down too ...

    Do you think you could stop .... immediately start cuddling with him, and he'd be loving?
    I dont think Bax would..

    Yes, which is why I didn't stop this play. I can tell a difference in his stance and posture and muscles when he is in an aggressive pose (which is almost never) and if I see this change I immediately intervene and/or make the kids because he has to understand that they won't accept this behavior either unless he is defending one of us. Sheldon doesn't like strife and when the kids are wrestling he will get between the kids or he will get between my hubby and the kids if he is getting on to them its strange though because he doesn't do that to me. If I am getting on to the kids he is just like whatever.

    I never really paid that much attention but Sheldon also plays differently with everyone as well as the animals.

    You oughta' hear mine, when they get going! It's never been all four at once, usually three-the fourth only likes to wrestle one on one at a time. Sometimes, I can hear that "someone" starts to get angry(usually if something hurts....) and then I say "hey, take it easy, no fighting!" and it usually settles down. I sure hope it continues to work, as they sure DO SOUND vicious!!!! And what a grip-I can see how they held a bull by the nose-in "ancient" times!!

    Yes that is so true...the drop it command is so important for these dogs to learn. Sheldon is learning to sit for his toy when playing which I think keeps the play from becoming too aggressive. The good thing about Sheldon is he reacts very well to positive reinforcement I don't have to treat train him if I choose not to. He loves hearing he is a good boy.

    Sounds like our house too... of course between the boxer & bully. What's funny is that Roxie will just pull her head up & Winston can't reach anymore... he gets so mad!!! LOL

    There is never a dull moment here with the kids home and the fur kids playing. I have uploaded a few video's on youtube one of which I can't get turned right so I haven't put it on here it's of one of my twins with Sheldon but it turns sideways and I can't figure out how to fix it.
