I often complain about how reckless Riley is when it comes to her "playtime".  While I will not throw the toy for her anymore, she still has to do her thing which is running, darting, play bowing, tossing and catching the toy herself, spinning, and more of the same. I cringe since she has been anything but free of injury (fractured hock and punctured joint that laid her up for a year), but it is a necessary evil. We recently went to a 4-day agility trial and she really needs to be reckless for a few minutes every morning to be at her best in the trial.  Thankfully, she was careful (or lucky) and ran sound all four days.
