Friendship or Competition? Symmetry in Social Play within the Two Packs of German Shepherd Puppies
TLDR
The symmetry of social play in Canids has been previously studied, especially in wolves, free-ranging dogs, and within mixed-aged groups, however this study focused on symmetry and asymmetry within play interactions in two litters of German Shepherd dogs (GSDs).
Investigating the Function of Play Bows in Dog and Wolf Puppies (Canis lupus familiaris, Canis lupus occidentalis)
TLDR
It appears that play bows may function differently in wolf puppies in regards to re-initiating play, while some similarities for the function of play bows in dog and wolf puppies were documented.
The influence of breed and environmental factors on social and solitary play in dogs (Canis lupus familiaris)
TLDR
The present study investigated whether the levels of solitary and social play differed between dogs of three breed types with distinct predatory motor pattern sequences and how environmental factors influenced play in dogs of these breed types.
Social play traits and environmental exploration in beagle and fox terriers' puppies.
TLDR
At this age, the observations of natural or spontane- ous play behaviors could be considered as an approach for future behavioral patterns, taking into account the differences considering gender and breed for beagle and fox terrier puppies.
Unveiling the "secret" of play in dogs (Canis lupus familiaris): Asymmetry and signals.
TLDR
2 tactics may concur in coping with the asymmetry and unpredictability of play sessions in dogs: whenever the asymmetric increases dogs shorten the duration of their sessions thus limiting the risk of possible escalation and making use of a good communicative system based on the reciprocal exchange of playful signals.
Why do adult dogs ‘play’?
Play Behavior in Wolves: Using the ‘50:50’ Rule to Test for Egalitarian Play Styles
TLDR
The results suggest that wolf puppies are more likely to play on equal terms with similarly-aged play partners, while the dominance status of the partners dictates offensive and self-handicapping behaviors between animals of different ages.

Development of social behaviour in four litters of dogs (Canis familiaris)
TLDR
The results indicated that before 8 weeks of age differences in social behaviour between the puppies were already established, and the tendency in the puppies during these weeks were negatively correlated with those of week 3 (play) or weeks 3 and 4 (agonistic interactions).
Development of Social Behaviour in Four Litters of Dogs (Canis familiaris)
TLDR
The results indicated that before 8 weeks of age differences in social behaviour between the puppies were already established, and the tendency in the puppies during these weeks were negatively correlated with those of week 3 or weeks 3 and 4, indicating a rebound effect for both play and agonistic behaviour.

Immediate and Delayed Benefits of Play Behaviour: New Evidence from Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes)
TLDR
Investigating the occurrence of play behaviour during the pre-feeding period, before a basic maintenance activity is about to take place, in the chimpanzee colony housed in the ZooParc de Beauval can assert that play behaviour is far from being a purposeless activity, at least in the chimpanzees colony under study.
Sibling effects on the behavior of infant mouse litters (Mus domesticus).
TLDR
The results extend previous reports of both social and solitary play in developing laboratory mice and indicate a marked female primacy in playful social behavior.
