There actually a Bear Podcast that does that. Male Media Mind Podcast is one that I listen to.

Pup Play – definition
A ‘fetish’ derived from Dom/Sub side of BDSM where the sub counterpart takes on behaviors of a dog, a Dom counterpart takes on a role of “handler/trainer.” Puppies will get into a “headspace” where it is easy for them to shed their human self and accept their puppy self.
As with any fetish, there is no black and white. It’s not uncommon for pups to take on a slave type of role.
Reasons for experience
Chester: For me, it allows me to express myself with a different persona. Being obedient is very easy for me, and I enjoy the interactions of a Dom counterpart treating me as a pup. I also have more self confidence when I am in a public space like a bear run or gear night, I also draw attention to myself and I get hit on quite a bit more.
It is becoming more and more accepted throughout the BDSM/Fetish community, especially at events like Folsom, IML, and CLAW. Particularly “Puppy Moshes.”
Outside misunderstanding [what people think it is vs. truly is]
As with most BDSM/Fetishes, people not familiar with the community often believe that the “sub” counterpart is not a strong person and enjoys being abused. Puppy play is very much the opposite. Trainers/handlers often treat pups with more caring and playfulness than a regular BDSM/Fetish relationship. It’s very similar to how a person would treat a biological puppy.
