Pony & Puppy Play

Animal role play is when a partner in a BDSM scene plays the role of an animal. Pony play and puppy play are two of the most popular types of animal role play. In pony or puppy play, the individual wants to be treated like an animal. This may involve a pony boy pulling his Top in a cart while wearing a bit gag or a puppy boy being lead around while wearing a collar and leash. There are varying degrees to animal roleplay, which largely depend on the Dom’s preferences and their submissive. It is important to remember that there are no real animals involved in animal role play.

What is Pony Play?

During pony play, one person assumes the pony’s role while the other is the Master or Mistress. The pony may be ridden or transform into a show pony, wearing a costume and trotting, galloping, and jumping. Partners may choose to breed as ponies and may use a strap-on horse dildo. Working ponies may be told to do chores.

There are many accessories used during pony play. Some pony play accessories include:

  • Bit gags: A gag with a bar that is worn inside the mouth, between the teeth, compressing the tongue. Some bits include a tongue port.
  • Saddles: Used by the Master to ride their pony.
  • Hooves: Shoes and gloves that mimic the shape of a hoof.
  • Harnesses: A garment worn across the chest to which a lead may be attached.
  • Martingales: A strap placed between the harness and bridle.
  • Hobbles: Used to prevent mobility and worn above the hooves.

What is Puppy Play?

In puppy play, one individual assumes the dog’s role while the other is the Master/Mistress or handler. The handler may train, groom, or show affection to their puppy. The Dom may have control over when their puppy may relieve themselves, eat, sleep, etc. A puppy play scene may play out in public or private. The public scene is mostly to be social with others who share the same fetish. For Doms, the appeal of puppy play is the constant companionship, ownership and control. The puppy enjoys relinquishing control to their Dom and feels a sense of freedom from stress and over-thinking.

Multiple accessories may be used during puppy play, including:

  • Bodysuit: A garment that has a pattern similar to that of a dog.
  • Muzzle: A muzzle covers the mouth and is secured behind the head. It prevents speech.
  • Gloves and boots: These accessories are shaped like a dog’s paws.
  • Hoods or masks: Headgear that looks like a dog’s head.
  • Cones: Similar to the ones worn by dogs after medical procedures.
  • Bondage collars: A leash may be attached to the bondage collar.
  • Cock sheath: A tube shaped like a dog’s cock that is slipped over a puppy’s genitalia.
