[nagdu] Arbitrary restrictions on playing with future guide dogs

I used to play fetch with Spencer. He would bring me the ball or whatever
about three times and do what I asked. Then he wouldn't bring it back
anymore, so I played with him about one less than was his usual limit. He
seemed to enjoy it.

Hi! Hadn't thought about a reward for them to play tug.  I actually don't
have a tug toy now, (Neena destroyed the last one).  We'll get another one
eventually.  I'd like to try playing tug with Nova.  She likes to fetch
balls and brings them back for awhile, then she gets her bone and chews on
it.  She loves to chew her bone.  She's actually not that much of a player.
We took her to the free play area at school, and she just came over and laid
down beside me, and even when her trainer interacted with her in play, she
just wasn't that interested.  My third dog Nat was like that.  All the
others have enjoyed playing, some more than others.  But she's a cuddler and
a chewer.  Maybe she 
would play with a tug toy.     Debby and Nova
