Thread: Playing Rough!?

    Default Playing Rough!?

    Bubba is almost 6 months and Bonnie is only 3 months. When I let these two play, they go at it playing and jumping on each other. Bubba does gentle bites against her ears and legs, but she comes back biting his cheeks and face to where her teeth get into his skin and makes it bleed. Her bites seem kinda hard but I can still tell they are playing. They will try to knock each other down and chase each other around the house. Is this okay?

    It is NORMAL but not necessarily desired. I let my two play rough until it looks like they are biting too hard and then I make them stop and rest for a bit. It helps for them to calm down a bit and then they start to play much more gently. If she does draw blood, be sure to clean it with a little peroxide. They sure can get nuts!

    They sure are CUTE! Welcome to EBN

    This is normal but like what was said above when you see one getting a little too aggressive break them up. remember your alpha so you call the shots. Also remember you have bulldogs they use to hang on the faces of bulls there not poodles a little scratch here and there isnt gonna hurt them they litterally have thick skin. When i give shots sometimes i cant believe how hard i have to push to get through the skin.... I have been around other breeds and bulldogs puppies french and english are ruthless to each other little scrappers for sure but they calm as they get older. plus you have a male and a female i think i saw so when the female get a little older she will win and that will be that, all my males let the females win from what i have seen... two females well thats another story two females getting a little to aggressive with each other can be bad. i always feel bad when the girls pick on my male see my avatar he gets this sad look like they just took his last ice cream...
    CONSIDER THIS..Someone comes to buy a puppy from you...They may gripe a little over the price...try to get you down in price...try to save a few dollars...BUT THE SECOND THAT PUPPY BECOMES "THEIRS"...and touches their heart...YOU COULDN'T BUY IT BACK FOR A MILLION DOLLARS

    yep yep , I agree. My adults go off with a quick snip while the youngins roll all over the place. I decide when its too much.

    Oliver and Sebastian are the same way. I'm always finding little scabby spots on their necks and cheeks from each other.

    i let mine roughhouse as much as they want. Sometimes there are small injuries but i think it's part of being a dog.
