    A lot of play is similar to children play – lots of role playing. So you will see fake fighting, hunting, kill behavior, etc.. I would say it is all normal and Slate will let her know if he doesn’t like it. Mounting behavior is a classic example. I have had a client leave puppy class because they were discusted with the dogs mounting each other, but it is obviously normal interaction to the dogs during play and other social interaction which usually has nothing to do with sexual intercourse…just like Cheyenne obviously isnt trying to kill Slate. Elu does this all the time to Dawson when they play too.
