    Teagan and Mitsu play a lot of cute bitey face. That is if Teagan allows that, we mostly only allow the playing to stay nice and gentle because its pretty easy for Teagan to get pissed off really fast and although Mitsu has never hurt Teagan its just a precaution we take. And we never allow Mitsu to get too amp-ted up or excited for obvious reasons.

    They are playing Bitey face right now on the couch behind me and its so freaking adorable.

    amp-ted up? You don't want her to amp Ted up? :p

    I only have one dog, but if I had two, Rosey would just look disgusted if the other dog tried to play with her. LOL

    Elsie and Zobby occasionally play chase, tag and tug, but not terribly often. Zobby's a little too dignified for that.

    They don't. My malinois are too toy obsessed and my pit bulls are trained that playing is mostly a no-no for safety sake.

    My boys play LOUDLY and ROUGHLY. Every day. For the past 6 years. :D They've never gotten into a spat, and they've never hurt each other, even accidentally... I just let them work it out. I'm lucky.

    This is the first time they played, when Fozzie was about 10 weeks old.

    And now, not much has changed, except they're louder. And there are occasional BJs! I'm sorry for the loudness of the screaming dogs and hardwood.

    Fozzie also likes to steal Gonzo's toys & run away to get him to chase him.

    I don't have two dogs but I do have a dog and a cat. Bandit doesn't like to wrestle but he loves to play chase and bitey face. Brobee loves to play chase, sneak attack and claws out. They are so cute together.

    With lots of growling, wrestling and jumping the sofa to body slam into the coffee table. My dogs never really understood the "Don't play inside!" rule lol.

    Outside they chase each other with some wrestling throw in (ie Aura grabs Diesels tail when she's chasing him and he ends up flipping over so she can bite him).

    Bandidt knows very well what indoor play is. When he gets too riled up indoors, which rarely happens, it always starts out with a loud howl. I can say "Bandit, use your indoor voice!" and he gets it that he needs to shut up and lay down because now is not the time or place. One thing I cannot actually stand is riled up dogs in the house. It drives me NUTS

    Mine LOVE to play bitey face, nip at each others feet, make weird noises on top of growling... Roll on the floor and wrestle and they LOVE to chase each other back and forth. Bamm and Cricket don't bark when they play and even though they growl when they play they are fairly quiet compared to most of the dogs at my work.

    Now add Joey to the mix... He is LOUD. He barks a LOT when he plays with other dogs. He likes to roll around too but he is spring loaded and pretty much just bounces everywhere with his big long awkward legs.

    1 word: rough lol.

    They are loud sound like a group of elephants. they through each other around like rag dolls lol. But at the same time gentle elephant ragdolls lol. But normally only indoors. Blaze is to serious outside to look like a fool playing with his younger brother.

    Solo is a rough player. and I cant let him play with smaller dogs for the most part as Im afraid he will hurt them. and people with 100lbs dogs dont like them to play with solo because he is "small" (40lbs) and will get hurt lol. I tell them dont worry about him, he is agile like a cat and fast like a cheetah he wont get hurt lol

    My two play some, but not terribly much. Mostly it's Mia trying to get Summer to play with her and Summer running around being weird. Mia will tackle Summer, and Summer will run in circles with Mia holding onto her tail. Sometimes they play some bitey-face only Mia bitey-faces and Summer rolls around on her back.

    They both love to run together and if Nard is around they will team up and take him out, lol. Occasionally they will get together and play chase without him. It is always always always Summer chasing Mia and not the other way around. Summer does not like being chased.

    Summer is kind of a derp when it comes to playing.

    Well, pretty much the only dog that Frodo plays with is Zuma. It's adorable (I have video somewhere), Frodo is extremely loud and he is very freeze/bounce/freeze/bouce/freeze lol. Very spastic.

    He's tried to play with one other dog, and his play style was too rough for her, she had no clue what he was doing. I think he has also played with Amber the lab who Megan watches a couple times.

    Bitey face, and rolling around. Maddie likes to wrestle upside down lol. Bailey is barky (of course) and tugs at Maddie's ears like crazy, and Maddie tolerates it pretty well. Really Bailey is the only dog that Maddie has ever played with like this, she'd play with Missy after a bath but she's mostly a people-dog and now Bailey is her exception :D

    Lots of Zoomies with intermittent wrestling breaks lol. It's like the clash of the titans (except Belle is the immoveable block). They run run run and then they come together and CRASH!!!! Belle stays put and Beezer bounces off of her lol. and then they wrestle and run run run again

    I think my dog's fav game is chasing each other! One will pick up a toy and run, they all chase, will bounce around and do some rough/tumble play :)

    They don't. I think a couple days ago they chased each other around the dining room one or two times, but that's probably the first time in 3 years they've ever attempted play.

    In the rare event that Keira does play, she rolls around on the ground in front of the other dog and mouths them. Actually, only with Ripley. She and Dance haven't played together for a very long time now. And at parks the Dobermans race and chase eachother.

    And Ripley and Dance are pretty rough. They like to play chase and then wrestle hard. Sometimes Ripley accidentally hurts Dance (due to a drastic weight and size difference) so I watch them to make sure he's as gentle as possible. She stands up for herself well too, so I don't really worry, but she does have to see her chiropractor thanks to him a lot. Dance instigates it all though. She'll just run up to him and playfully nip at him, or stick her head in his mouth, or run to him on his bed and start rolling around playfully. And he can't resist. He's pretty sure his whole life should be nothing but fun and games! And Dance feels the same way. Aside from the size difference, they are such a great pair.
