Ok so we finally scheduled a play date for our girl. Gabi will be 16 weeks tomorrow and her play buddy is a bassett hound who is younger then her by one day. My wife and I are first time dog (boxer) owners. The two dogs seemed to get rough with one another at times. I'm glad the bassett had lots of extra skin! I cought Gabi grabing the other pups neck a couple times and shaking her head back and forth like she does with her toys. I separated them when I saw her doing that. She would also try to box him and sometimes get her nails in his eyes. I'm not sure if it was as bad as it looked. Whenever the other dog would sqeel, she got off him and let him up again before she tackled hime again. She wasn't really growling at the other puppy when biting and when we'd retrain them and get them close enough to touch, Gabi would give him kisses. Rosco, didn't seem to mind her roughness either as he would look for her and taunt her. It was fun to watch her pounce on him. He would imediately give her his belly and she would bite his tail. They played for a solid two hours. Could anyone advise what is too much? Rosco is a barker and I think Gabi finally caught on as she was barking at him pretty good by the end of the session. By the way, I posted pics of their playtime in the photo album.
