Body language

Playing or fighting? Or play fighting? There's quite a difference in body language in dogs that are actually fighting and those which are playing. Here younger half-sister Elsie is beating up on her older half-sis Diva. In this case, it's all playing or play fighting since the barred fangs and the "dueling jaws" never go past a certain boundary.  Four-year Diva is being particularly tolerant of her younger sister's (15 months) antics.

  1. I love watching dogs play and wrestle like that. I could do without the sound effects that my dogs constantly do but still find it fun.
