Depends on the dog. Some dogs enjoy it and do well with it. I'm not personally a fan of doggy daycare because I don't like entrusting my dogs to strangers (there are very very very few people in my life I will entrust my dogs to.) At 8 months old if you've put in the training to get her comfortable with you being gone (i.e. she knows not to panic because you'll be back,) she will be fine being left at home while you're at work, especially if you are able to come home for lunch.>>3506263
She don't fall for your bullshit. Smart girl>>3506295
It's normal for dogs to self-handicap during play. When dogs play with each other they switch roles, make big goofy exaggerated movements, and let their play partner knock them over even if the other dog is a fraction of their size, etc. They seem to have a concept of "fairness" in the sense that nobody likes to lose all the time; if you let your partner "win" the game, they'll keep playing with you.>>3506460
That's adorable. Juniper really likes the sweetgum tree burrs that fall into our yard>>3506604
Yes. That isn't to say all zoomies are caused by this (sometimes it's just fun because the dog is excited,) but it's safe to say if the dog is having uncontrollable zoomies they are probably overwhelmed in some way.
