From the back cover:

“Almost all dogs love to play – by themselves, with other dogs, people, objects and toys. But what do we really know about play? Is it possible that what looks like play is something else entirely? German author Mechtild Kaufer presents findings from scores of researchers worldwide who study why dogs play, the benefits they get from play and hot to recognize the ‘rules’ of play that dogs follow to keep their play behaviors fun and safe.

Great information on

  • ‘Self-handicapping’ measures that dogs employ to keep things fun for all even with dogs of differing size and strength.
  • Benefits that play brings to puppies including increased coordination, cooperation and hunting skills.
  • How to be a better observer to prevent play from turning aggressive, including appropriate measures to take to intervene.”
