Angel Has Dogs. Playing.
Thelma and Louise don’t play.
Louise gets very excited when she sees her leash or when we arrive home from work- so we do not put the leashes on either dog until they’ve chilled and calmed down- but I assumed her excitement would translate to playfulness.
I’ve tried a few different toys including a hard rubber ball, a tennis ball on a rope and a rope in its own, but apart from Thelma running after the ball once or twice it seems they have no idea what to do with the toys! And they react very badly to anything resembling a stick, their cowering makes me wonder if they weren’t beaten by whoever abandoned them.
How do I teach the girls to play?
