dog-owner-walking_67420_600x450I have been searching for this information for quite a while now, and was able to find it on the SIRIUSPUP website. Now I know these guys are awesome and this just proves it. They’ve developed this way of pup play taking away from the Japanese tradition and values. This takes a serious amount of research into Japanese literature and culture to formulate how the Japanese might see pup play as a whole, which would most logically apply to the more traditional Japanese population and those who grew up with the Japanese values.

The fellas at SIRIUSPUP have referred to Japanese pup play as Inu Jyutsu (literally translating out to ‘dog philosophy’). You’ll find more information about the SIRISUPUP website here.

The one major factor about the Japanese is that they preach that the younger should value what their elders, and as a pup you should value what others who have been in the scene for longer have to teach you. You don’t learn my talking and silence is the best way to learn, and when you listen you become more credible and trusted.

“Entering the village, obey the village.”  The proverb tells one to obey the rules of where you are; it shows the strong value placed on rules in a collective society for the better of all people.(Nihon-no-Kotowaza)

“The mouth is the cause of calamity.”  This proverb communicates how the Japanese view the usage of verbal language.  They believe that through the use of indirect language, they will save-face and help others to do the same, which creates social harmony.  This quality shows that they find collectivism to be important to their society. (Nihon-no-Kotowaza)

Another important factor to take away from the Japanese values is their concern for the group instead of the individual, also they are very formal as to show respect and save face. This is a great value to have for your pack or group you as a member do represent the pack when answering questions concerning the pack. What you say and how you say it will affect how someone views pup play and your pack as a whole.
