When puppy won’t calm down, dad finds perfect way to tell her playtime is over

April 27th, 2021

Left alone to watch the puppies.

Mama doggie needed a brief respite from her mischievous puppies, so dad is given puppy duty.

I’ve got this.

At first, dog dad believes he has this under control. “How hard can watching two puppies be?” he asks.

He loves his puppies and they love him, so this may even be fun.

Dad and puppy playtime.

Dad settles in and is excited at the prospect of this alone playtime with his puppies. Let’s have some dad and puppy fun!

As the roughhousing really kicks in, dad starts to enjoy himself.

I have an idea.

It didn’t take long, however, for the little puppy, Sassa, to decide it was time to spice things up a bit. It’s as if she smiles at the camera saying, “Watch this!”

Ok, that’s enough.

Dad tolerates the puppy nipping and playing for as long as he can, and then he’s done. He tries to snarl at the pup to let her know that playtime is now over.

Not ready to cut her playtime short.

Sassa pretends she can’t hear her dad and continues to play roughly. Dad just keeps snarling at her, warning her that it’s time to quit. Now!

Normal puppy behavior.

Even though watching this video makes these golden puppies seem like they’re just plain naughty, the truth is, this is pretty normal puppy behavior. Puppies learn through play and have a lot of energy. Golden puppies are notoriously high-strung, and these puppies, especially Sassa, just don’t seem to want to calm down.

Loving dad.

Sassa’s dad is loving and playful with his puppies. According to their Youtube channel, he spends time daily cuddling with them and teaching them through play. Even though he looks slightly worried when they won’t calm down, he also understands the importance of this playtime, and that is why he is as tolerant as he is.

Golden Retrievers make great family pets.

As you can see from this video, Golden Retrievers are extremely gentle, calm, tolerant, and patient. In addition to the obvious personality traits that daddy dog displays throughout the video, goldens are people pleasers and very easy to train.

For these reasons goldens make ideal family pets.

Golden Retriever health concerns.

Although Goldens are generally pretty healthy dogs, there are a few health problems that they are often plagued with. The number 1 health concern for them is cancer. If considering adding a golden to your family, common health ailments to watch for are hip or dysplasia, cataracts, ear and teeth problems.

Golden Retriever litters.

In this video, there are 2 puppies in the litter, which is not the norm for Golden Retrievers. The average number of puppies in a golden litter is 8. The thought of this daddy doggie being solely responsible for that many puppies makes me giggle.

Even though he was patient with his 2 little girl puppies in this video, I’m not sure how happy he would’ve been with quadruple that number crawling over and nipping at him. Playtime with a full litter of goldens would be much more stressful!

Watch this video and see if you agree!
