First Playdate....a bit rough
OK so I took Piggy on his first playdate yesterday., My firend has a German pointer/Pitbull female mix. The first half hour was excellent and they played and Piggy was respectful feeling his way out. Now...towards the end Piggy got VERY dominant with her....wrestling her(this is a 90 pound dog btw) and biting at her....making sounds I have never heard from him. And she was pretty submissive running away and trying to avoid him.
I guess I am wondering if that is normal? this was VERY intense play....like I am not sure I would trust him at a dog park.
Re: First Playdate....a bit rough
Bacon was the same way when he was a puppy and he was playing with 100+ pound Rotty/Black Lab mix. He was jumping all over her and nipping at her jowls, he has chilled out a little since then and it helps when the dog he is playing with puts him in his place by fighting back. Don't take fighting back the wrong way my friends puggle with give a little growl at Bacon or show some teeth and he turns back into the little chicken that he is. I think he just gets over excited for his age, also he doesn't get a ton of other dog interaction so when he does he is very excited for a play mate.
