Smile What fun games do you play with your pup?

I was wondering if you could share some of the fun / stimulating games you play with your pup?

Finnick LOVES to chase the laser pointer around (it's so funny the lengths he will go to, to get that little dot!). He also loves it when I hide treats around the room or yard and tell him to go find them! He has lots of puzzle toys, but hes not that into them.

We're looking for some more games though...?

I don't use a laser pointer. I do play hide and seek though. Lol. My hubs holds his collar while I run upstairs and hide. He's gotten pretty good at finding me

We play monkey-in-the-middle. We bounce a ball or throw it as close to him as we can & he tries like crazy to beat us to it. He realizes we're going to get it if he doesn't ... when he misses he spins around and waits for the other person to do it again. It takes a lot of tries but when he FINALLY gets it before us he prances around with those ears back and we hoot & holler "GOOOOOOOD BOY!" He eventually drops it at one of our feet & we go again. It's hilarious & fun watching him try to "outsmart" us. We get tired out way before he does & we're the ones standing still! LOL

I'm in the process of teaching my boy fetch. He kinda gets the idea. He will run to it if I throw the ball. But some times on his way back he is like ,ooo what's that? :what:I think he has adhd

My pup was watching my husband Nd son throw the ball back and forth. It was cute seeing him stand in between them moving his head back and forth, waiting for one to miss the ball. Then he would grab it if they do and prance with his big puppy paws. Super cute my boy loves soccer balls. He will kick it and run after it. It's fun to run with him and kick the ball and run with it.

I combined multiple games into one giant one that Gunther loves and I'm positive is going to drop weight off of me. I throw the football and as soon as it leaves my hand I sprint around the house and hide. (I'm seriously waiting for the day I run into a tree or fall onto the air conditioner or fence) As soon as he finds me I give him huge hugs and then grab hold of his collar. He guides me to where he left the football and we go again.

We do LOTS of fetch.. haha. Its Titan's favorite pass time. We also do "find it" I hide a toy or treat somewhere and he has to find it.

Those 2 are his favorite.

Filling the pool with water and add a few minnows is also great.

We play chase around the house, we play tug of war with his toys, and we tickle him.
