It sounds like your dog wants to play with you, not just lie there and chew on something. I suggest trick training, tug, Nosework or find it games, indoor hide and seek, focused obedience... things that the dog can do with you.
When a dog saves the life of a man, it becomes clear that partnership knows no bounds.
