Two hopefully easy questions about my 4 month old pup.
My first question is, is there a age in which rough play (play fighting) should be discouraged? I read a few places that by 4 months it was time to start getting them after non-living play mates. Odin seems to be moving that way a bit on his own because we praise him for playing with his toys or safe 'improvised' toys (he LOVES sticks from the yard for chewing) and he gets no praise from playing with Ein, our Corgi. I think it would take very little to get him to stop harassing Ein to play since she only really tolerates, definitely not an enjoyment thing for her.
My second question, is Odin strange? At four months he's pretty laid back. I'm used to pups being wild hell bringers for the first year but Odin is very relaxed. He gets zoomies and lives to shake, toss and chase his toys and he loves to run in the yard but he also prefers to spend time cuddling with us when we are home and laying around. He brings one toy at a time out of his crate to play with or sometimes lays in his crate. I would say 70% lazing 30% playing.
