When children are younger, they go through stages. At first, we monitor them very closely and don’t let them out of our sight! We play with them to keep them focused and out of trouble!
As they get older, they start to want to play on their own – which is nice that mom or dad doesn’t have to sit with them every second. Dogs are very similar. They like to play with mom or dad a lot when they are young, it is a time to bond. When they get older or are alone, then they can entertain themselves.
Like the dachshund in this video! The dog has figured out how to play fetch by herself! She simply drops her bone into the pool and then runs around to the shallow end. She dives into the pool and gets her toy! What a great way to have fun and get exercise!
