Well, I didn't really care about playing with my dog, until I made the tug toy that Jean said. I tried to play with a ball with her, but it took me half a year, to get her to go after it, but she still doesn't really care about it. Tugging only worked out with Pedigee Denta Stix.... I think playing would do good to her. I think she wouldn't be that afraid of everything. This is the thing that I think came from her previous owner, she was beaten very hard. I bet this is why she doesn't play with anything, she is afraid of it. (Did this second part make sense?:msnunsure The point of the whole post is that can I teach her to play?
