Hey there Pups. Today is a special day for me. Just nine months ago I started my journey in human pup play.
To be honest I was not sure of what to expect. I knew I was keen. I certainly understood that deep inside me was a human dog, a canine ready to engage the world, ready for “human pup play” as I had discovered.
While in my mind I was ready for this new experience, what I have learned is beyond my wildest dreams.
My Human Pup Play Learnings
For something as simple as “pretending to be a dog” the leaps and bounds I have grown are huge.
I’ve learned to trust. Trust in my master & handler, trust in my pup brothers and most importantly in myself. I feel safe, nurtured and yes even owned. I feel safe with my pack, I know I can express my animal side without worry of “human” repercussions. Living in a world of day to day “consequences” taking time for human pup play has opened the door to a peaceful paradise of dog and handler, training and animal headspace, of joy without regrets.
I’ve learned to view my world though a different set of eyes. Eyes while sitting on all fours encased in leather or rubber gear, eyes that encompass my canine soul, my masters pet. A soul that is simple without the complexity of human form. A world of my owner to whom I am collared, playing, caring, supporting. While part of my dog like drives are base, in reality it’s the mateship, the companionship, the animal trust and connection that brings me such joy.
I have to admit that human pup play has pushed my boundaries. I’ve explored in ways I never imagined. My mate, my companion, my handler has taught me well. I now know how I stand, especially when on all fours. I can woof, bark and howl to express my inner dog soul. I can sleep knowing my pack has my back. I can give and take when playing as I learn a new human pup behavior.
I’ve learned honor, care, trust. For this I am grateful.
Sleep well pups.
