I thought that I'd share a bit more of what we like to do in terms of play . Here's another example of us playing last summer.
Does your dog or cat play naturally? Shyla didn't. I had to teach her to play. At first, she just stared at me as I was crazy when I tried to get her to play. I learned how to "invite" her to play better, and then she gradually learned to let go and have fun.
We are still having fun! Her favorite game now is doubtless chasing me. I have to toss a cookie to distract her so that I get a head start. Then, I find an obstacle to hide behind. I have as much fun as she does!
