    We just got our female, 10 week old, Belle a few days ago. Just went to the vet yesterday. I asked her to what degree should I allow my pups to wrestle and play and she said as long as they are not growling at each other or yelping they are ok. But this morning I noticed the 1 yr old male has scratch marks all over his face from her ‘grabbing’ him when they are playing. It doesn’t seem to be bothering him, but the scratches are open wounds…not bleeding, just open. Not sure how to handle the situation.

    Well like the vet said as long as there isn’t growling or yelping it’s fine. Got to remember dogs play differently from us. But either way always keep an eye on them just in case…but most likely its puppies being puppies.
