Puppy play position Training

Puppy play position Training

Frannie, puppy play in the backyard by Elmo Love

Recently I had a conversation with a fellow kinky friend who had recently discovered puppy play – and had been having a lot of fun with it!

She asked me for some advice on training in her pup space and I was honestly a bit stumped. I’d seen pups train and play at previous parties but being a kitten I’d never thought about puppy training before.

So we bounced around some ideas and it inspired me to do some research and create this post for any other pups out there who are starting out on there puppy training!


Sit

How to do it 

Get yourself into a comfortable kneeling position and sit back on your feet. Put your hands firmly on the floor (wherever and however works best for you) and look up at your Owner – adoringly of course

Uses

  • A great Foundation skill for other commands
  • Keep your pup in one place!
  • A good position to put on or remove gear for your pup (collars, ears, leashes etc)
  • Get and focus your pups attention on you 

Stay

How to do it

This command usually follows a position command – like sit. 

Hold whatever position you were in at the time of this command until a new command or pats are given (because pats are far too exciting to stay still for lets be real here!)

As a pup if you struggle to stay still for long periods of time try wagging your tail as a way to burn some of that energy whilst still obeying your owner.

Uses

  • Helps your pup to not break positions such as sit or down. 
  • Keeps them out of trouble!
  • Acts as a form of mental bondage

Down

How to do it

From whatever position or place your are get down as low as you can ie. if you are on furniture get off the furniture and onto the floor, if you are already on the floor simply lie down in whatever position is comfortable or preferred by your Owner. Some pups I know (and adore!) tend to roll straight onto their backs in preparation for their reward tummy scritches

Uses

  • Help calm your pup 
  • Keep them out of trouble in excitable or new situations
  • Allow yourself to catch up with friends without tangled in your pups leash or have them go missing
  • Can act as a mental form of Bondage
  • A nice option to wind down a scene

Come

How to do it 

Go to and/or follow your owner.

Uses

  • Calling your pup to you
  • Following up with other commands such as sit or heel to keep them close to you
  • A key strategy in mischief prevention!

Heel 

How to do it 

When your Owner is walking 

Crawl at your Owners preferred side and try keep your shoulder in line with their leg – this keeps you close to your owner without getting under their feet

When your owner is still 

When your owner is still this is an opportunity to rest your knees (especially in longer pet scenes!) by getting into your ‘Sit’ position at your owners side

For cuddly pets! –  rest your head on their leg and snag some extra pats

Uses

  • Keep your pet close to you as you move around – ( a great command for busy kink events)
  • Keep your pet from getting under your feet while you walk
  • Can be used alongside leash training or as an off leash command.

Beg 

How to do it 

Get into your “sit” position and raise both paws up to your shoulders. Give your owner your best puppy dog eyes and then whine (trust me it works almost every time)

Uses

  • This is a fun way to draw attention to and deepen the sense of your power dynamic
  • Feeding your pet treats (or ‘treats’)

Roll over

How to do it 

Lie down if you aren’t lying down already and roll yourself completely over (or if thats uncomfy you can just roll from side to side)

Uses 

  • Playing
  • Tummy rubs or tickles
  •  It’s just So Cute

A tip for Tops

I Highly recommend making little changes to your pups positions – You can base this off what you find visually pleasing, what kind of pup you want your pet to be (guard dog, show dog, lap dog etc).

For me being able to execute a position exactly to my Owners liking deepens the intimacy of our power dynamic – which I love.

What is Puppy Play

What is Puppy Play

Puppy Play is a type of pet play where the “pet” takes on the role of a canine and their partner (if they have one) often takes on the role of an owner/trainer/handler

Puppy play as we know it began in the leather community after the 2nd world war.

Now days puppy play has become hugely popular within BDSM communities!

In this post we will look at;

  • Types of Pups
  • Types of Humans
  • Activities
  • Gear
  • Where to find out more

Types of Pups

Some common puppy types pet players identify with are:

Puppies – Puppies are the over excitable, playful and super enthusiastic puppy player.

 Puppies or pups is also used as an umbrella name for puppy player.

Strays – Pups who are not collared or do not have an owner/trainer/handler

Alphas – Alpha’s tend to be the top dogs around the other pups. Alphas can take a leadership role within packs or at community events 

Sometimes they will even exert this dominance over their humans as well. 

Show Dogs – This type of pup generally enjoys training for a purpose and showmanship. This is often to compete in competitions like obedience or agility but it can also just be for the fun of it!


Types of Humans

Handlers – those who care for and train one or more pups. This is the most common term used for humans in puppy play and can act as a blanket term if your not sure of the human/pup player dynamic.

Owners – those who “own” the pup. They are incharge of caring for their pup much like a Handler but the title itself gives off more of a power dynamic vibe

Trainers – those who teach and discipline puppy girls and boys to excel in their (or their dominants) chosen interests. 

Companions – those who interact and play with pups without necessarily being in charge of training or caring for them.


Activities!

Training – Basic training often includes simple command words (sit, stay, beg), and positioning training.

Moshes – Moshes are like a big puppy play-date. these events provide a safe space for pups to play and wrestle with one another (Called moshing). Moshes are also an opportunity for handlers to spend some time socializing too!

Shows – Human pup competitions take place all over the world and can be a great opportunity to meet up and make new friends in the pup community. Competing in the shows is entirely optional and can be a ton of fun if you want to try it out!


Gear

Puppy Play gear is varied and personalized depending on you, your pup space and/or your dynamics. Gear isn’t needed to be a puppy player but it can be a fun way to express yourself!

Some common pieces of gear in Puppy Play are;

Hoods – can be used to help pups look more pup-ish or as a form of sensory deprivation. Hoods are often made of leather or rubber and come in a range of styles and colours to suit any pup!

Ears – ears can be a part of hoods or come on headbands/clips. Ears are often made with faux fur if they’re on headbands. They can be a super fun way to add to the feeling of being a pup without using a hood

Mitts – mitts can be padded or not and are mainly used to remove the pups ability to use their fingers/hands.

Harness – Harnesses can be used for aesthetic, bondage or as attachment points

Collar – collars can be aesthetic or symbolic depending on you and your dynamic

Tails – tails come in a ton of different styles to match ears, masks or whatever style you want. Tails also come with the option of being inserted or attached through harnesses, belt loops or tying around the waist depending in personal preference

Knee pads – Knee pads!! I have recently learnt how much knee injuries suck. If you like to crawl in your pup space please please please protect your knees and always use knee pads!

BDSM Kitten Play Training

BDSM Kitten Play Training

Paws up Kitten

Training and I had a rocky start to our relationship

I loved the idea of training and the obedience that would come with it. 

I started with position training first because the mental and physical challenge of position training was appealing 

Naturally I tried the first guide to position training I found 

… it just did not work for me

It was too serious and frankly intimidating for me

After a few false starts, I found this guide to kitten play command words by Sadistic Panther.

I highly HIGHLY reccomend checking out the link!!

And I fell in love

It was just so much more fun and playful and rewarding for both myself and my partners!

Over time my kitten play training has changed to fit my evolving D/s dynamics and identity as both a submissive and a pet

So this is what my Kitten play training looks like now


 Positions

Sit pretty 

How I do it. 

In this position I kneel with my knees shoulders width apart, sitting back on my feet. 

I like to have pointed toes that meet in a V behind me, because honestly it feels pretty to me. 

My hands rest on the floor between my knees and I push my chest out to give the best view of my… assets. 

My kitten side is vain, to say the least, she loves to show off and this position combined with the praise I often get for obeying hits all the right buttons for me.

Uses

  • Grooming
  • Pats
  • Putting on/removing gear (like collars, hoods, leashes etc)
  • Getting your pets attention
  • A clear start to a scene

Tail down

How I do it

This position is a variation on sit pretty where my feet are set wider apart (legs parallel or in an M shape) and my butt is firmly on the floor. I do my best to keep my butt on the ground – to try to help remind myself to and to show my Owner that I will Stay. 

Uses

  • Keep distractable kittens in one place – atleast for a li
  • Prevent mischief – I tend to steal my owners rope when theyre trying to pack up

Companion 

How I do it

This position I kneel just like in ‘Sit pretty’ but to my Owner’s right side (or wherever they indicate). If I can I will rest my head on my Owner’s lap. If I’m told ‘paws up’ in this position I will rest my ‘paws’ on their thigh. 

Uses 

  • Keeping your kitten close
  • Wind down a scene
  • A form of aftercare
  • Cuddles

Belly up 

How I do it. 

In this position I lie flat on my back with both my legs and arms partially bent and held up off the floor. My hands will usually stay or return to above my shoulders because this is where they feel the most natural.

Uses

  • Playing! Dangle rope or a feather wand above your kitten
  • Bondage
  • Sensation play
  • (consensually!) Molesting your kitten

Tail up

How I do it

I kneel like in tail down and stretch out and down until my chest touches the floor. I rest my left cheek on the floor as well to prevent bumping my head/face on the floor. I either stretch my arms out above my head or tuck my hands under my shoulders depending on how I’m feeling. And arch my back so my booty is high in the air, if I’m feeling frisky this will usually end in a butt wiggle. 

Spontaneously doing this position to show my Top that I am feeling playful and happy. 

Uses

  • Encouraging a submissive mindset in your pet 
  • Impact play
  • Inserting tail plugs
  • Booty wiggles 

Commands

Paws up 

How I do it.

I curl my fingers into my palms to create little paws and bring my hands up to my shoulders, palms out.

Uses 

  • Removes use of fingers and hands
  • Easy way to access hands/wrists for bondage
  • Combines well with most positions but works great with sit pretty/belly up

Beg 

How I do it

To beg I stand up on my knees with my hands in the paws up position. I usually follow this up with a mew or say ‘please’ depending on my or my Owner’s mood.

Uses 

  • This is a fun way to draw attention to and deepen the sense of your power dynamic
  • Feeding your pet treats
  • A way to gain enthusiastic consent for sexual play

Hunt 

How I do it

When given this command I crawl slowly on my hands and knees with my whole body as low to the ground as I can as if I’m stalking prey (usually in the form of a toy or my Owner). 

Uses 

  • Great fun when playing hide and seek with toys
  • Allows you and others to admire your pets hunting prowess

Knead 

How I do it

This command is pretty simple. I just start kneading whatever I am currently touching – as if I’m making bread. If I’m not wearing my mitts I tend to curl my fingers into the palm of my hand to knead so I don’t accidentally hurt anyone… 

Unless it’s a soft blanket because then i want to touch as much of it as humanly possible

Uses  

  • Encouraging your kitten to relax 
  • A great start to cuddle time with your pet
  • Good for self soothing nerves or excess energy
  • Combines well with the companion position

Clicks

How I do it

When my Owner clicks their fingers it’s the equivalent of “come here” for me and I will crawl over to them or to whenever they have indicated they want me.

 The verbal command “come” has little effect on my kitten side, clicking with verbal encouragement to “come here” gets my attention when I’m in a kitten space.

Uses

  • Get your pet where you want them
  • Following this up with the tail down position to keep them there


Leash Training

I’ve only recently started leash training with my Owner (as of a few weeks ago) and I’m so excited to see how this develops!!

How I do it

At the moment when my leash is on I treat it like a mobile companion command. 

This means that I try to stay at my Tops right side so my shoulder is in line with his leg, whether he is moving around or standing still. When he is still I like to sit down, mainly because I am a lazy pet and if I get distracted they usually manage to get my attention through clicking or a verbal command to ‘come’ or ‘follow’.

Uses

  • Have your kitten automatically follow you around
  • Keep your pet close and keep your freedom of movement
  • A physical reminder of your power exchange and your pets place

Would you or have you tried training? 

I’d really like to hear about your experiences and ideas below!
