Sort Of Chasing




Posted Nov. 4, 2017

This larger breed of dog is high energy, and can move surprisingly fast. As they imprint early on to what they are to protect, it's best not to try to contain that instinct or that energy. A great game, if they want you to chase them - and they will taunt you to try - is to pretend that you are going to. Give it an honest attempt, as it is the intention that your body language will convey. Naturally, after for your fist few strides they may have covered fifty yards or more. Relax; they dog will return to you in ever-tightening circles taunting you to play, and while you will get some exercise, you will be able to freely exercise the dog as well even though you can't hope to keep up; as long as they can tell that you are still in the game!
