Teaching a puppy to play, with a problematic pal...
I have 2 Australian Kelpies, Patch and Jayna. Paddy (Patch) is 10 years old and Jayna is nearly 1 year old. I have been trying to teach Jayna to play with things, but Patch is so toy-oriented that he intercepts the toys to play with himself and if we put him somewhere else he will howl and carry on.
Besides his toy-theiving, Jayna doesn't seem to understand the concept of playing with humans. Her and Paddy rough house, but she won't with me, she just rolls over submissivle.y And if I do have her alone with a toy, I can throw it and she will chase it but stop when she gets to it, or else not even notice I threw it. If I throw it at her, like trying to get it to land in front of her, she thinks I am trying to hit her and will run off.
How can I get her to play?
