    Default How to get my bullie to play more.

    My six yr old bullie DaiseyMae is a rescue dog. She is not very playful but very loving. Any suggestions on how to get her to play more.

    One thing about bullies is they do exactly what they want to do when they want to do it...so get her some toys but if she doesn't want to play it will be hard to make her....just keep loving her up you said she was a rescue so maybe nobody played with her so she is not used to it...she may learn to like it...be patient

    We have Diva a save also , she came to us at 7 years old and was the breeders bitch so was busy all her life no idea how to play ( Diva was not a puppy mill dog ), I started with putting her on the bed and played under the cover play , so she is on top of the covers and I would put My hand under the covers lol she had never seen that ever ( never mind being on the bed ) and I was very slow at first as I learned I must be moving my hand around , i stared by slowly moving My hand around so she would pick up the motion of the hand then moved to grabbing her paw lol was a WOW moment and she was going ever since , iI introduced a knotted pull rope ( wish i never had ) she loves her pull rope , now the rope is out side of the bed in the real house action there , now I throw it down the hall or whatever and she or should I say I am putty in my hands or in her case as named Diva in her paws !

    Try to raise her spirit by acting all happy and excited about a toy. For the most part you should be able to get her to play tug-o-war. But not for any great length of time though.

    Some also love empty plastic water bottles, maybe she will like that. BeBe is 9 years old and still goes nuts for one.

    Since she is a rescue... she may have to learn how to play --- some of them depending on the situation they came from, never had a chance to learn .

    Our Mabel never played, and still really doesn't. She was a breeder and I doubt she ever played. We have had a little luck with a few toys. We usually take something soft and try to make her angry with it until she grabs it and takes over. But I will warn you--DaiseyMae may never really take to toys. Mabel will play for just a few minutes then she's done--like she doesn't "get it." It breaks our hearts. She doesn't know what she is missing.
