If you play with your dog on a regular basis, you develop bonds of understanding, respect, loyalty, and communication that remain forever. Games moreover are a fun way to train your dog to: obey you and not the other way around and to socialize with you and other pets you might have.

How can you tell that your pooch is bored? Observe his attitude, if he becomes destructive and often gets into trouble these are sure signs he has nothing to do.

Fun Outdoor Games For You and Your Dog

1) Fetch – There are canines which are natural fetchers and there are those who aren’t but all of them do love this game. You can use a stick or his favorite toy for this.

To play with your dog, throw the toy and tell him to fetch it and return it to you.

2) Frisbee – You both can exercise with this very physical game which is perfect for the overly active dog. This is just like a modified version of the fetch game where you throw a flying disk known as a Frisbee. Your dog should try to catch the Frisbee in midair or otherwise and bring it back to you.

Once you and your dog get really good with this you can opt to join competitions. Competitions are confidence boosters both to you and the dog itself.

3) Hula Hoop – This is a game you can play indoors or outdoors, start with a hoop appropriate to the size of your dog. Begin the game by laying the loop on the ground. If your dog figures out that he has to be in the center of the circle, praise or reward him.

After he’s used to this you can play with your dog by teaching him to jump through the hoop standing on its side raised inches above the ground.

4) Treasure Hunt – Dogs will love using their noses and powers of concentration in this game which you can play indoors or outdoors. Start with a treat that he really likes, show him the treat, and have him watch you put it behind a couch or a nearby bench.

Gradually make it harder for your dog to find the treat. If you want to teach your dog to find anything through this game, change the treats to shoes, or belt or any item that you can easily loose.

A Few Reminders

1) End the game while your pooch is still interested not when he is already bored. This is one of the techniques to establish control over your dog.

2) Don’t forget to reward your dog with his favorite treat if he successfully performs anything.

3) When playing with your already confident canine pet, letting him win all the time makes the him dominant. Instead of you controlling him, you now find yourself being controlled by your pet because he beat you over and over in your games.

4) If you play with your dog who is the shy type, let him win once in a while, this will develop his self confidence. However, don’t overdo this or you will create an overly confident dog.

3 Fun Games to Play With Your Cat

In this busy day and age most people struggle to find time to do everything they want, and quite often spending time with the family cat is sacrificed for other things, such as TV and work. This is not only bad for your owner-cat relationship but also for your health and the health of your cat as pet owners who frequent with their pets are generally more healthy than non pet owners.

There are however some simple games that you can play with your cat that are fun for both of you, and don’t require too much of your time.

3 Fun Games To Play With Your Cat

1) Cat’s love to chase things, we all know this and know that they cannot help themselves. Using either a torch or preferably a laser pointer, start waving the light in front of your cat and watch them chase after it. You can run the light in circles, across the room, up the walls and the cats just love it. Whenever i pick up the laser pointer they get really excited and start purring, it’s great fun and lets you bond with your cat.

2) Another chasing game that gives you some exercise as well is to get piece of string and move along with one end trailing behind you on the ground. Most cat’s can’t resist the urge to chase it and enjoy being able to pounce on it.

3) One game that younger cats enjoy is what i like to call hide and seek. Basically you hide behind something, get their attention, then duck back down and hide again. It’s a bit like peek-a-boo with a small child but some cats enjoy it just as much.
