Talking Playing childrens games with dogs.

Does anyone else play games with their dogs that any 3 year old would enjoy?

I realised today that I often treat Bodhi like a 3 year old child... and she LOVES it!

I came in from work today, and Bodhi came across to wiggle at me, and I played the "where's Bodhi" game.... like you do with a kid... pretend not to see them and go look for them LOL

So I was walking about the house, looking under the table, in her bed calling Booodhi where are you... and she was right behind me the whole time, trying to get into view like "HERE, I'M HEEERE!!!"... so eventually I said... oooh there you are! And she was like an ecstatic toddler.

I also play hide and seek with her.... run up stairs and hide till she finds me (this works outdoors too)....

And one of my favourites is go ahead of her.. or let her run ahead of me and hang behind - hide.. then when she comes looking for me, jump out and make her jump

LOL... She is like a kid. She loves it.

That's so cute!

Pit wouldn't get it. The only non-dog game I can really play with Pit is a baby game where you coo and tickle them a little. He eats that up. I've tried hiding on him on walks when he doddles off, but as soon as he looks up and sees I'm not there, he BOLTS back in the direction we came from with his tail tucked. If I'm not within a few hundred feet of where he lost me, he typically takes off like a mad man in a random direction, gets himself lost and will not stop running until I find him. Not a fun game for eitehr of us

Eeeee run after the fleeing dog isn't a game I'd like.... I played 'hide behind the big bush' the other day, Bo came running up one side, so I ran the opposite way round it... I peeked round and she was just coming out the woods looking for me... lol.. all confused.. she thought I might hide behind a tree I guess!!! I felt guilty so jumped out to suprise her LOL

1st time I ever played hide and seek was when she was a pup, in the sand dunes on the beach.... My ex held her, and I ran off (not far) and hid behind a dune.... he let go and she BELTED after me... went right past and kept on going for ages...

I was laughing so hard I couldn't call her back LOL!! Bless her....

HIde and seek is a great game for reinforcing recall as well. I did that with Pepper. THey knew i had a treat (a really really good one) and who ever found me first was the one that got it. Pepper was delighted with this game.

OH yes I played hide and seek with teddy ALL the time lol and he LOVED it. I do it sometimes with Beezer and Belle when we first come home because they will always look for me but otherwise... they don't really care where I am so they don't come look lol.

As a reverse roll though... sometimes we play fetch with hannah lol. and she's better at it then the dogs
