Play with me now!
Fitz is now 12 weeks old and is all-around great. When he's very playful (which is often), he'll often bark to initiate play. Should I respond to this or ignore it? I don't want to deprive him of play time, but I don't want to get him in the habit of barking to get me to do what he wants (he still tries this in the pen sometimes when he wants to be let out, and gets ignored).
Is barking to initiate play something he will grow out of? He seems to have grown out of mouthing at hands, but he'll still nip at clothing. When we walk away and ignore him for a few seconds, he'll bark at us to get us to play.
