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!

Crafty critters – DIY day collar

Crafty critters – DIY day collar

DIY pet play day collar

So the other day I was deep in the black hole of the instagram pet community and I saw this

BDSM Animal Roleplay concept

Naturally I absolutly had to make a day collar with a little bell

and I thought to myself

Make it into a cradty critters tutorial!!!

So lets get started!


Making the collar

All you will need for this part is string and scissors!

Measure the string around your neck and add about 10cm. Cut 2 of this measurement. Then cut a third piece about 4-6 times longer than your center pieces

Fold your long piece of string in half and gather your pieces together like so

Tie a simple knot

Knot 1

Fold string as shown

Pull each string gently to secure knot

If you would like a spiral braid continue to repeat knot 1

Knot 2

Knot 2 is basically a reverse of Knot 1.

For a flat braid alternate between knot 1 and 2

Now keep making knots until you have reached the desired length for your day collar

When you have a long enough braid – tie a simple knot (I like to do this twice because i feel like its more secure) and trim the excess string

Thread your double knot through the loop to close


Adding extras!

For this you will need a pair of pliers, accessories (like bells or charms) and jump rings

Bend a jump ring open

Add your chosen charm

Find the half way point in your braid

Feed ring through the mid-way point of your collar

Close ring and enjoy your new day collar!

Did you enjoy this DIY?

I’d love to see what you crafty critters have been up to so show off your creations below!

Pet Play – Building a dynamic

Pet Play – Building a dynamic

Playful kitten girl

Building a connection is hard – 

let alone a whole dynamic!!

And then add in being new to pet play or to this particular partner 

It’s definitely a challenge

But the good kind! right..?

Sadly we are all unique, individual (and often unpredictable) snowflakes

So… a step by step guide probably wont work out well  

So I’m going to talk about my experiences and what I like to do and hopefully you will be able to take the bits you enjoy and apply it to your dynamic!

In this post we will cover:

  • Common types of dynamics and relationships in Pet Play
  • Negotiations 
  • Aftercare
  • Non verbal safewording 
  • Building a bond
Crafty Critters – No-sew Clip in Bows!

Crafty Critters – No-sew Clip in Bows!

An easy DIY project for any pet to enjoy wearing and making!

Instructions

First: Gather your supplies!

For a set of two bows you will need:

  • Hot Glue gun and extra glue sticks
  • Measuring tape or ruler
  • 1.25 meters of ribbon (the ribbon I am using is 4 cm wide)
  • A lighter
  • Hair clips
  • Scissors
  • Candle (Optional! I just tend to burn myself more while using lighters)

Cut 2 pieces of ribbon at the following measurements

  • 20 cm
  • 15 cm
  • 12 cm
  • 5 cm

Seal the edges of ALL your ribbon using the flame from your candle or lighter so that they don’t fray.

Tip – Switch on the hot glue gun now so it can heat up.


Optional Step – Fancy Bow tails!

First take your 12 cm piece/s of ribbon and fold them in half width ways

Cut your ribbon at about a 45 degree angle

To seal try keep it loosely in half and run it past the flame (this helps to keep a crisp inner corner)

Do this of each end of the ribbon.


Fold your 20 and 15 cm pieces of ribbon in half lengthways.

I like to have the sealed edges fold over each other so I can secure the loop with a small dot of glue

Once everything is secure stack your ribbon pieces as shown

Add your 12 cm ribbon piece below and fold your ribbon pieces so they make a nice bow

(this takes a bit of trial and error)

Fold your 5 cm piece(s) into thirds

(helping hands can be really useful here!)

Take your 5 cm piece of ribbon and wrap it around your bow as tightly as possible.

Secure in a loop with a dot of hot glue.

After this your bow might look a little rumpled

That’s okay! because the 5 cm piece of ribbon is glued in a loop you can gently tug your bow back into place

Secure your hair clip to the back of your bow with some more glue and hold it in place while it cools

Admire your cute new bows!

Ways to wear them

Here they are clipped to a headband

Begginers Guide to Pet Play – Finding your pet side

Begginers Guide to Pet Play – Finding your pet side

When I first started in pet play I was overwhelmed with all of the information out there

From choosing animals to roleplay to developing fully functional dynamics with others and all the little details in between…

Pet Play can be intimidating.

So if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed – it’s okay!

I was exactly where you were and it gets better. 

So I wanted to write this post to try to help myself and others find their feet amongst all the information that’s out there.

We will look at 

  • Choosing the type of pet you want to roleplay
  • Gear
  • Trying out pet play
  • Joining the community!

Choosing the type of pet you want to roleplay

For me, this was probably the most stressful part of getting started with pet play.

Mainly because I can’t make a decision to save my life…

And everyone seemed to have such detailed specific pet personas!

It was overwhelming and for some reason, I had decided I could only have one pet side and I could NEVER GO BACK

Shockingly this is not the case. 

You can pick and choose and change your mind as much as you want

You can be any color, mix or type of creature you decide 

And you can have as many different pet spaces as you want to ( but I would recommend starting with one while you are finding your sea legs – otherwise it can get a bit overwhelming)

You can also choose not to have a species or type of pet you roleplay 

Human pets are a great example of this – they do not roleplay a specific animal’s behavior rather they roleplay as a ‘pet’ with whatever restrictions and roles they have negotiated prior.

Here are some ways people choose their pet types

Instant identification 

Some people just seem to know what pet they want to be

They’ve insisted on playing this one animal since they were a little kid 

or they’re a crazy cat lady like me

Maybe you’ve just always loved cats or dogs or ponies

Or you saw a pup at a party and you Want That

Some but not all people just know what they want.

If you are one of these people – awesome!

If not keep reading to find some other ways people have chosen their roleplay animal

Personality

Some people pick their pet based on personality traits that they identify with

For example, most cats are quite independent, like affection on their terms and tend to know what they want when they want it

Whereas dogs are super excitable and energetic, love affection pretty much always and tend to be very well behaved

What you want out of pet play 

Pet types can be chosen to fit what you want to get out of your roleplay.

Some examples of this are;

If you want to get into pet play for the obedience and training – pony play or puppy play might be your gig

If you adore humiliation play – piggy play might work perfectly for you

If you have a lactation/breastfeeding fetish – cow play would probably be great for you!

Trial and error

Sometimes there are too many choices that sound fun!

If this is the case just do a round of trial and error tasters of different types of pets and pick your favorite/s from that 

Dominants preference

If you can’t decide or you don’t want to decide, see what your Top thinks!

They may have envisioned pet play as having an obedient little pup, a strong cart pony, or perhaps a snuggly little bunny? 

This way you and your top can train and shape your pet roleplay to fit whatever their vision may be


Gear

So you have your pet type is chosen – it’s perfect, your excited – IM excited – 

Usually, the next thing people want to do is get stuck into the gear

This can be for a lot of reasons;

  • Having pet play gear can help signal the start and ends of scenes, 
  • It can encourage roleplay
  • It can make you feel cute
  • It’s just fun

There are tons of reasons to want and enjoy gear in your roleplay.

A quick disclaimer

Gear does not make the pet player

You are not more or less valid because of the gear you choose to have or not have. 

This is just another way to have fun if you want to.

There are a ton of different kinds of gear for pet play to fit any style and budget out there – more common pieces of gear can include;

Ears

Ears primarily come as clip in’s or headbands

Styles range from basic silhouettes to fancy and fluffy!

Tails

Tails mainly attach through plugs, safety pins, tying around ones waist/belt loops or to a harness

Materials can range from silicone to faux fur

Hoods

These are mostly used by puppy players but other options are avalible online.

Materials can range from leather to rubber and come in a ton of different styles and color combos

Masks

Masks can provide full or partial face coverings

Materials can range from fabrics such as leather to plastics

Body suits

Styles can range from full coverage to play boy bunny style body suits

Materials range from latex to lace and everything in between

Harnesses

Harnesses are primarily found for the chest, hip or face (as a mask or hood)

Purchased harnesses are most often made from leather or can be apart of rope bondage

Gloves/Mitts

These are available in a range of styles and restriction levels

Materials can range from leather to fur

Collars/Leads

Styles can range from pretty and decorative to ‘tug’ proof.

Materials for range from ribbon, chain, leather or strapping


Testing out pet play

Restrict yourself 

Follow some common rules or restrictions given to pets like

Movement restrictions

These can look like; crawling, not using hands to grasp stuff, not going up on furniture, keeping arms behind your back if testing out pony play 

Vocal restrictions

These can look like; not using words, testing out different noises like whining, growling, meowing, barking, etc

Mimic different pets

Aka my best excuse to watch cute animal videos for.. research…

Body Language

wiggle your booty if your excited, try grooming yourself with your paws 

Play

play fetch with yourself (bat the ball away, go fetch it and remember no hands! repeat), just swat the ball around, burrow into some blankets, lounge in the sun, find a slightly elevated spot and sit on it. Feel superior because you and no one else is on the slightly higher spot.

 – whatever seems the most appealing try it out!

What is Pet Play?

What is Pet Play?

Pet Play is when someone role plays some kind of domesticated animal (AKA a pet) within a BDSM context.

A cute little pet

What does Pet play looks like?

Storytime!

The room is lit with a warm yellow glow, the smell of vanilla – His signature – drifts through the room.
The door opens a crack and His pet slips into the room – still steaming from her shower – flashing him a smile before burying herself in His arms.
He chuckles and asks
“Are you ready to be my kitten, pet?”
She wriggles in excitement and nods eagerly.
Ears are collected, placed on her head – adjusted briefly by practiced hands as she is instructed;
“Tail up”
Obediently she moves into position.

Waiting.

A soft mewl escapes her lips as her tail is inserted – the veil of her kitten space begins to settle over her.
She slides to the floor and butts her head against his leg affectionately. He sits and begins to scratch behind her ears, down her neck. Mewls and purrs announce her descent into kitten mode as she basks in the affection
After a while, he stands. Rummaging through a drawer. His kitten watches avidly and as he reveals a small silver torch
Deeming his offering unworthy of sitting up his kitten wanders off to settle in her spot on the floor
A bright red dot appeared.
Dancing in front of her nose almost as if it’s teasing her,
mocking her hunting skills.
Her eyes narrow and she shifts into a hunter’s crouch
Wriggles her butt… pounces and..
What? It was right there!
The dot dances just beyond her paws and she prepares to pounce again.
He chuckles watching his kitten chasing the laser back and forth across the room.
Not so secretly enjoying the view of a mostly naked girl crawling around his room.
Eventually, she comes to rest at his feet, exhausted…
“Awh is my kitten all worn out?”
“Why don’t you come have some cuddles?” he asks, patting the bed.
Purring she climbs onto the bed settling herself over his chest.
They stay like this for a while, until he signals her to shift spaces with the request
“Can I have my girl back?”
She Nods
A few minutes and kisses later the heavy blanket of her kitten space has been lifted.
She looks up and grins
“Thank you! That was so much fun!”

“You’re welcome pet” he murmurs, kissing her forehead.

This is one super cute and fluffy example of a pet play scene.

One of the awesome things about pet play is how easily it can meld and change according to your kinks, moods, or wants.

So it can be cute and light and fluffy
It can be dark and twisted as fuck
It can be in the quiet moments when you are having a coffee at the end of the day,

It’s completely up to you!

Things commonly found in pet play scenes are;

  • Training (think positions, commands)
  • Playing with toys
  • Begging for treats (puppy dog eyes, whining, positions for edible or more physical rewards insert cheesy porno music here)
  • Walking your pet on a leash
  • Eating from bowls
  • Bondage
  • Impact
  • Movement and vocal restrictions

Why people enjoy it?

Roleplaying a pet can be a fun new way to receive service from an s-type
Or
A nice way to relax and be taken care of
Or
A different way to express submission (crawling after your master, pawing his leg for attention, non-verbal physical expressions of love and affection)
Adds to the intensity of a submissive mindset

Playing the role of the human is an opportunity to care for and spoil your partner
The increased level of reliance on the “human” for needs/wants of the pet (such as rest, food, water, play) can increase the focus and intensity of a scene.

Pet play overall

  • Can be a cool combination of playful and sexy
  • Melds well with other kinks so there is a lot to play with
  • Can be a different flavor of power exchange
  • Can be A fetish
  • is fun

Types of pet play

So your most commonly seen pet play types are;

  • Kitten play
  • Puppy play
  • Pony Play
  • Piggy Play
  • Cow Play
  • Human Pets – this is when you roleplay as a pet but do not roleplay as a particular animal or with specific animal traits such as barking, meowing etc

PSA
You can play whatever kind of animal you want providing they are at least kinda domesticated
I recently discovered the concept of dragon pet play – which is both AWESOME and proof that the only limit is your imagination

Myths

Beastiality

Pet Play is not about an attraction to actual animals. It’s about humans roleplaying

It is all or nothing when it comes to pet play and sex

Pet Play seems to be one of those subcultures that people believe has to be ether
As pure and virginal as the Virgin Mary
Or a bad porno

Mostly it’s somewhere in the middle of those two expectations and will vary person to person.

Only s-types can be pets

No!
This one both makes me grumpy and makes me laugh.
It’s like saying only males can be dominants.

Anyone on any side of the slash can roleplay as a pet if they want to.
Just like anyone of any gender identity can be a Dominant or a Submissive

Where to start

Research as much as possible!!

Here are some links to get you started:

And after you’ve researched like a mad man, maybe tested some stuff out independently

Negotiate with your partner
Not sure how to negotiate well?

Well here’s something I prepared earlier… Spoiler it’s more research links…

Safety Tips

Some things to consider when negotiating
Aka
Mistakes I made that really screwed me over and I don’t want you to suffer through

Knee Pads

Even if you don’t have joint issues I cannot stress this enough:
BUY SOME KNEE PADS
Seriously if you are going to be on all fours your knees are going to take some rough treatment.
Carpet burn, bruising, painful knees for literal DAYS (I didn’t have knee pads and I decided to play on a hardwood floor just this once- Do NOT make my mistake please)

Safewords

This is a BDSM activity so you absolutely need a safeword.
Id recommend the traffic light system because it’s easy to understand and remember

Green – I’m good, lets keep going!
Yellow/Orange – I need you to slow down and/or check in on me
Red – STOP RIGHT NOW

If your pet space is non-verbal decide and agree on a physical safe sign instead of a word.
I, for example, like to use a FIRM double-tap anywhere on my partner’s body.
If I can’t reach them,

I’ll knock/tap/stomp on whatever surface I happen to be on as loudly as possible.

If you have any examples of what pet play looks like for you, I would love to see your comments below!
It would be a huge help for future posts and play dates!

Pet Play – How to carry your own leash

Pet Play – How to carry your own leash

BDSM Kitten Pet Player

So right now most of us are in isolation to help flatten the curve of COVID19 (gold star guys!). 

I don’t know about you but when I found out my study was to be postponed ..

I had no clue what I was gonna do with myself – until that is I chatted to a kinky friend of mine about what we would be doing with all this free time and I realized 

This is the perfect chance to take a break from the vanilla world and spend some time enjoying kink – and that means more pet play!!

But lil succubuss I’m single/my top isn’t in isolation with me/my top is part of the essential services work force etc etc 

It’s okay! We are strong independant pets! We can carry our own leashes!

In saying that I do need to be honest

carrying your own leash can be really fucking hard!

Especially when you are first starting out.

It took me ages to figure out what I was doing, so I want to save you time and energy and talk about how I do it – this way I might be able to help some of you!

There are a few ways you can indulge you pet side when you are by yourself

  • Research and development
  • Active pet scenes
  • Partial pet space and activities

Naturally (coz I’m type A) we are gonna go through this list and talk about what they mean and how you can do it then some tip and tricks I’ve learnt

Research and development

Basically this means looking into and learning more about pet play in general as well as learning and developing skills. 

If you are just starting out on your pet play journey (or could use a refresher)

I’d recommend starting with the basics like what is Pet Play and the types of pets out there.

Once you are ready to start expanding and deepening your understanding of your pet space you can look into other stuff like; 

  • Behaviors, sounds and body language of your pet species
  • Training
  • Gear
  • Incorporating other kinks into pet play (like pain, rope, leather/latex)

Sooo I spend a lot of my time looking into Animal Roleplay and Pet play (Shocking I know) and there are a ton of places to find information!

If you are a visual person (or you just like to see cute people in adorable pet gear – which is totally mee)

Instagram is gonna be your best friend! – the gear, the girls, the human-pet training videos! *heart eyes*

If you are a bit of a bookworm and like to read up on stuff well you can read more of my blog posts! (some shameless self promotion there)

Other places you can find stuff to read are;

Fetlife – there are a few groups on Pet Play

Tumblr – some of the text posts are AH-MA-ZING this one on kitten training by Sadistic Panther changed my relationship with pet play and just took everything to the next level

Tons upon tons of stories online – these are usually fan-fictions or eroticas and might not be the most informative pieces but they can be fun to pass the time 

And if you like to listing or watching stuff

YouTube!

I cannot recommend to you enough Evie Lupine

She does videos, she does podcasts, she is totally my pet player crush so I might be a lil biased but

OH MY GOD go watch her videos!

So researching, reading, fangirling over Evie is great but sometimes you want to get stuck in and do something that will add to your pet play.

This is where development comes in to the picture, since we are all stuck inside anyway this is the perfect chance to learn a new skills

I for one really want to try learn how to self tie my legs (rope has become a new interest of mine and I am quite the smitten kitten)

Some other skills you could learn are 

  • How to make animal noises (this feels kinda weird at first so I found it really good to do alone until I built confidence!)
  • Pet themed DIYS for those crafty critters
  • How to wag your tail (especially pups! This takes practice!)
  • How to plan a scene
  • Activities during pet play
  • Negotiations, safewords and aftercare
  • Self tying

Pet scenes

For me there are two kinds of pet scenes that I enjoy doing by myself 

Active pet scenes – This is where i will set up and plan a pet scene where i have the time and space to get fully into my pet space and have some fun 

And 

Lazy/Partial pet scenes – these are when I’m not feeling being fully in my kitten mode or I don’t have a good chunk of free time and the spoons for an active scene etc

Active scenes

Planning 

If you have never been involved in planning a scene go back to the first section and research!! 

Planning isn’t necessary for every scene you do but when you are first learning how to carry your own leash and experience pet play solo..

Having a plan can help calm your brain down and make it easier to enter and exit your pet play space 

Decide on what kind of scene you would like to have, any activities you want to have available for your pet side, how long you want to be in a pet space etc;

Some activities I really enjoy during these active scenes are:

  • Hide and seek
    • This is where I ‘hide’ a few of my toys, maybe some treats around the room during setup 
  • Play with toys
    • How high can you throw your squeaky toy and still catch it in your mouth?
    • How fast can you bat that yarn ball between your paws?
    • How much can you shake that rabbit before you get dizzy?
      • These are all very important questions we must investigatefor science
  • Cat nap/nest
    • Set out a while bunch of soft warm things for a nest after all that hard work hunting down toys and testing your skills
  • Play with your pets as a pet
    • This can be super fun with a dog! Cats tend to be a bit unimpressed when you pounce on them.. 

Set up 

I cannot stress this enough

Make sure you have everything set up before you get into your space

Seriously there is nothing worse than having to pull yourself out of your space because you forgot a toy or blankets or your brother decides to call you right then

what? no that didn’t actually happen to me…

To make sure I don’t get caught out mid scene I like to have a check list of any activities I’m planning on doing as well as the following;

  • Is the room is at a good temperature for what you are wearing/not wearing?
    • Think, cool for leather/latex pet players and warm for pet players who prefer less clothing
  • Do you have a softer area to rest your knees if you are going to be crawling around?
  • Is there food/water available if you need it?
  • Are my notifications turned off and alarm set to finish the scene?
  • Is any background noise set up to play for the duration of the scene?
  • Is my aftercare area set up? (if needed)

Aftercare

The biggest tip I have is to set up an aftercare area separate from your scene space (like the lounge, desk or bed)

Doing this makes it so much easier for me to get out of my pet space – so hopefully it’ll help you too!

Aftercare from a BDSM scene vs a BDSM AR scene can look a bit different.

This means the aftercare you set up for yourself might look different to the aftercare you normal get after a BDSM scene

An example

For me aftercare after a BDSM scene involves the 3 S’s snuggles, snacks and soft things

But to get me out of a pet space I sometimes need a bit more help.

Some things that can help the transition are; 

  • Removal of gear such as paws, ears, tails and collars
    • if you weren’t wearing them earlier
  • Standing up, walking, sitting upright in chairs
  • Stretching you muscles
  • Talking to others
  • Having something to eat or drink

I personally like to follow a routine to get out of my kitten space, which usually looks a little like this;

  • My alarm will go off to tell me the scene is over
  • Procrastinate on ending the scene
  • Tell myself I need to be good/ have my second alarm go off
  • Take off my gear and have a drink of water
  • Stand up and put my gear away (this ticks of standing and walking)
  • Sit in my aftercare space, have a snack and drink 
  • Message a friend or watch a non animal/pet related movie or tv show while my brain settles back into its human mode

Having a routine to get out of a space can help to signal your brain that pet time is over and make the transition easier (this can also apply when playing with others)

Lazy Pet scene/Partial Pet space 

These scenes are waay more low key than the active pet scenes you can do – this makes them perfect when you only have a little bit of time to indulge your pet side, or you want to  increase your confidence and comfort in playing by yourself!

These kinds of scenes are also really helpful when you are struggling to fully invest in your head-space

which is normal! and now you have a possible hack for it too!

During these scenes there are tons of activities you can do! Depending on how much time/energy you have;

  • Pet themed crafts/DIY’s
  • Bake pet treats 
  • Pet/Animal roleplay movies/books
  • Joining online communities, message boards or role-plays
  • Messaging pet friends
  • Going down the YouTube rabbit hole
  • Going for a walk/run – you pet side can enjoy the outdoors whilst still maintaining 3rd party consent practices
  • You can even do some of that research and skills building if you want to be super productive in your partial pet time!

Some Tips & Tricks 

  • Set up everything you might possibly need before you start
  • Set up an aftercare space with human activities to ease you out of pet play times 
  • Have you aftercare space separate from your scene space
  • Play movies/series in the background to prevent feeling lonely 
  • DO NOT LOCK YOU’RE MITTS OR COLLARS IF YOU ARE ALONE AT HOME
  • Wear gear if you have it! And follow any restrictions you have within your pet space; eg. don’t walk on two legs or go on the couch
  • Make noise! Meow, bark, purr – get into it and enjoy the freedom to be as chatty as you want in your pet space!
  • Expand your comfort zone – one of the best parts about playing alone is that you have no reason to feel shy! So get into it, be silly, be spontaneous
  • Have fun with it!!
