It is important for your dogs to have time to play with you.  Try to make time for your dog to have a play time at least once per day.

Most people have enough time to do this more than once per day but your dog may feel neglected if you don’t play with him and begin exhibiting bad behaviors to get your attention.

There are lots of ways to play with your dog.  You can play fetch, toss, belly rubs, tug, you can even play rough house with your dog as long as you stop it every time if your dog’s mouth touch your skin.  You can play hide and seek other similar games.

Be creative with your play time.  Come up with games you and your dogs enjoy.  If you come up with creative ideas leave them as a comment.  I’d love your suggestions.
