‘Dog Games’ Played By Our Dogs… at Our Expense!

I am sure that most of use that live with dogs are very familiar with these so called ‘dog games’… and if you happen to be blessed with multiple dogs in your household that fun is only multiplied! It certainly was that way it was in our house when we had more than one….

1. Is it bathtime? After your bath DON’T LET YOUR HUMAN TOWEL DRY YOU! Instead, run and jump up on their bed, drying yourself on their bedsheets. This is especially good if it’s right before your human’s bedtime.

2. When your human comes home, pin your ears back, tuck your tail between your legs, and keep your chin down… acting like you have done something really bad. Then, watch as your human frantically searches the house trying to find the damage they think you have caused. (Note: This only works when you have done absolutely nothing wrong!)

3. Teach your human how to be patient. When you go outside to ‘pee’… take your time and sniff around the entire yard as your humans wait. Act as if the spot you choose to pee will ultimately decide the fate of the earth.

4. Let your human teach you a new trick. Learn it perfectly! Then when your human wants you to how it off to someone else, stare blankly back at your human like you have no idea what they are talking about.

5. When out for a walk… but only at the busiest time… draw attention to your human by picking the most visible spot to go ‘poop’. Take your time making sure everyone watches. This works really well especially if your human forgot the poop bags!

6. Also when you are out for a walk, alternate between choking and coughing every time a strange human walks by. See the looks that your human gets.

7. When your human calls you to come back in the house, take your time. Walk as slowly as possible back to the door.

8. Make your own rules! For example, when playing fetch, don’t always bring the stick back to your human. Make your human have to go and chase it once in a while.

9. Hide from your humans. When they come home from wherever they were… without you… don’t greet them at the door. Hide from them and make them think something terrible has happened to you. (Don’t reappear until one of your humans is panic-stricken and close to tears).

10. Use your internal clock and wake up twenty minutes before the alarm clock is set to go off… making your human take you out to pee. When you come back inside curl up somewhere comfortable and go back to sleep. Note… humans are rarely able to fall back asleep after going outside!

Do you have any additions that should go on this list?
