Romping Rovers: Understanding Dog-Dog Play


For many pet dog trainers, refereeing dog-dog play interactions is an important part of the job! Whether you’re teaching puppy classes, running a doggy daycare, or helping clients troubleshoot their dog park visits, you need to feel confident in your ability to read the situation in front of you and respond appropriately.

In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to analyze play interactions to make sure everyone is having fun, and how to troubleshoot problems when they arise.  You’ll also have the opportunity to submit your own videos for analysis and discussion.



  • What does normal play behavior look like?
  • Understanding different play styles
  • Potential problems to watch out for
  • Management/intervention strategies to keep things friendly
