I've discovered that Porter loves to play hide and seek... we get on the floor and hide our heads in our arms and he goes nuts and jumps all around (not on us, just around).  Then, he roots around with his nose trying to find our heads.  He's taken to biting and pulling on my ponytail.  Not hard, but enough.  What's that about?  My husband worries that Porter will think I am a toy and not respect me.  but I wanna play with him, he's just a puppy!  Hmm...   :roll:

Re: When we play, Porter bites my ponytail! What's that abou

My dogs will do the same thing.  Everyone that I have had has acted exactly the same way you described.  I think they need to see your face (dogs really do tune into facial expressions from us) and can't take it when you get on the ground and cover your head.  He is probably grabbing your pony tail as it is a dangling, easy to grab thing for him.

I agree with Nano..Ashley pulls my hair when its up in a ponytail when we play also, I think she knows the FACE is on the other side, and just uses it like a handle to get to you. I don't think Boxers do this to be rough, as they seem to know its all in play.
I will warn you though...unless you or your man want to go streaking out in the night to catch your dog who has a "hair dingleberry"...watch how much hair he is pulling..lol..You too could become a member of the "streak the neighbors" club when Porter thinks the hair coming out the "exit" on him is something attacking his back side ( LOL..sorry all..this is where MY problem stemmed from the night I ventured outside to save my pup! )

:( dumb boring laid back Autumn isn't into that game...not even when I'm under the sheets/bed covers!  Every other dog I've ever had has loved that game, and it's so fun and hilarious (try staying in a bad mood when your dog is doing that!)...she does like my hair though, but in different contexts haha...when my hair is wet all she wants to do is "groom" it and lick me dry (why does she figure that licking is the best way to dry something? haha) and the first few times I was blow drying my hair, when I had my head upside down and the blowdryer was blowing my hair everywhere OH would she carry on!  She'd start leaping around and barking haha...funny, but bad, so I watched her do it a couple of times and laughed at her, then stopped her from doing that.

Chance is a hair puller. He is either always licking our hair or pulling it....sometimes to the point it hurts. They are goofy sometimes!!

Thats funny because I have this problem sometimes.  Only Duke gets embarrassed and runs away from me, he does the sitting down, rubbing his butt on the grown thing.  Poor baby.
