Yes, just never had the chance to play really. Granted I'm more of a wolf loving my Alpha, but it's basically the same thing.
Yep. Owned as a pup by my husband. Do have rubber gear, pup hood and the like if I want the full effect, but most of the time wearing a collar suffices.
I'd probably have to say yes to this...I have zero experience with it though, but would love to try.
I would love to try, on both ends. Never had the chance.
There are ways you can practice petplay alone. I think, however, that it depends on what you're trying to get out of it - if you want the emotional experience of being controlled by another person, having a partner is going to be more-or-less essential. But if you don't mind just acting like a pup - I know not everyone plays as a canine but I do - it's pretty easy to do alone. I've had sessions where I wear ears, tail, and collar and tie myself up with a leash, while having a bowl of water to lap from, and even a dog toy to chew on or a bowl of dog food to eat. And in my experience it tends to feel... rather natural, really. Not weird or anything. I suppose kind of the same feeling I get from doing baby things.
Pet food? Ewwwwwww. That gross. That is a bit too far for me. And I'm really picky with food. I'd rather not. Aside from that, I would prefer pet play with a partner, as a pup, kitten or a foal/horse, and ride in my back, with a whip.
