How do you handle play with other dogs? As I mentioned in another post recently Dee has one speed as far as play goes....full throttle! Her hips aren't great and rough play isn't the best plan, thus she doesn't get a lot of play with other dogs. I have friends with smaller dogs, but I'm not sure how the little guys would fair with the rowdy Lab play and not sure if she would adjust her intensity down to suit their size. She's not very big, but she's solid. Anyway, I feel badly for her because she is always desperate to play and more often than not I have to say no. I had every intention of getting another dog (I'd hoped another Lab) when she was 3 or 4 years old, but now I wonder if it would be a good idea....knowing how they would likely play and that it could damage her hips. I hope to avoid her having to have surgery down the line...or at least put it off for as long as possible. From what I read it sounds like it is often unsuccessful. I know the majority of you have multiple dogs... and for those who have dogs with even moderate hip problems/dysplasia I wonder how you handle it. Thanks.
