EXHUBERANT PLAY OF THE ADOLESCENT and ADULT ANATOLIAN SHEPHERD:

Anatolians of all ages love to play and rough-house, especially teenagers. Both companion and working dogs will need a place and the opportunity to release their energy. Really rough puppy play needs to be curbed in order to prevent injuries to growing bones and joints .
