The other day, I was hanging out in the Canine Cove at doggy daycare playing with the dogs. I decided to break out some of the balls, and it is always interesting to see who gets really excited for them and who can care less. Jack, in the picture LOES to chase the ball, then he like to put all of the balls by him! One of the most popular questions we get is why don't you use toys and balls in all the rooms. We only use the toys and balls in the Canine Cove and it is because there are not as many possession issues. Imagine bringing out 30 balls in the Ruff House, all the dogs always want 1 of the balls and this creates aggression which can lead to a fight. This is the reason we don't use them in the other rooms. In the canine cove, if there are any dogs that think they "own" the balls, we just stop using them. We know dogs enjoy the toys, but none of us enjoy breaking things up and we always put safety first.
Have a good weekend!
