It is fun to play rough and tumble when you are a kid. It is NOT ok or safe to play this way with a dog. Playing with Daddy is a better option than playing or jumping on the family dog. This dog is relaxed while Dad and toddler are playing but many dogs may need to be in another room during such active play. Watch your dog and give them something to do that will help decrease their excitement while there is rough play going on. Have fun! Keep it safe!
