Duke came into his first Fort Fido day ready to rock. He is a three month old Rottweiler/lab mix. Most large breed pups start in the Medium Roll. Duke on the other hand, is one of those young dogs that is a hard player. He needs to learn a thing or two from the pack, some "dog language" or manners so to speak. Due to his very physical play style, Duke was the perfect candidate to get with the big dogs early on.
The larger, more mature dogs do not take any guff from youngins. They will play well with a puppy but won't cut it any slack, firm and precise corrections are the norm. After awhile with his elders a young puppy will usually have better bite control and an understanding of fair play.
This is a clip of Duke rough housing with Jake... Before his venture into the Big Roll.
