Your puppies favourite games!

I thought I start a little fun thread where everyone can share their favourite games and your puppies favourite games...
Do you play anything out of the ordinary with your puppy?
Besides "fetch" and "tug" ?

Dalston loves tug and fetching his cuddle cow plush toy.
I want to try to let him search for things soon and play hide and seek...

So what are your fav games to play with your puppy?

Gibbs and I love to play and he has a few.

1. Tug of War: He will start by bringing over his skunk skineez. If I don't take the hint, he will bring over this dragon, that has two "duck sounding" squeakers.

2. Fetch: Although he won't fetch balls. It starts as a game of tug of war, and I will throw the skunk. He'll retrieve it, and just before he gets back to me, I'll throw the dragon. He'll return the dragon and I'll through the skunk.

3. "Chopstix": We bought him the dragon with double "duck" squeakers. He'll bring it over to me while constantly squeaking the one side, and he wants me to mirror him with the other squeaker. It kind of sounds like an obnoxious version of chopstix. I get the added pleasure of driving Dana crazy when we do this.

Besides "tug o war" and fetch, I think Ginger's favorite thing to do is: we give her a big paper bag, preferably one with handles and watch her go. She runs with it like flying a kite, stops, jumps up and down on it, starts tearing it apart, runs with it some more, jumps up and down on it and tears it up more. This can go on for about 15 minutes. She was in heaven at Christmas time.
Go Ginger, Go!

Go Ginger is right!! That sounds like so much fun, I know Sophie would love that. I will have to try it. At Christmas she was in the middle of everything shredding the paper. Thanks for sharing. Sophie loves to play fetch with her plush balls, much easier for her to carry than the tennis balls.

I put one of her treats in an old sock, and make her sit and stay while I hide it in a different room. She has fun running around sniffing it out. She is not as good as a bloodhound, but pretty close! LOL (Fetch is still her favorite to play)

Tyler's favorite game was to have me chase him around the house. However, since his knee Injury, I can't do that with him because we have wood floors and I am afraid that he will " wipe out" and do more damage. He isn't one that ever played with toys or balls unless he was stealing them from Bailey. Once he got them, though, the game was over because he had no interest in them.

Leo loves fetch, tug, and playing with his doggy sibs. So far we haven't introduce others.

Keep away. Sheldon wins if he makes it under the coffee table before I catch him with his toy.

He almost always wins. He's fast - and devious.

Kodi likes fetch and tug, and this funny game where we say "I'm gonna get you!" and wiggle our fingers at him. We don't need to move, and it's ONLY the fingers that we wiggle. But it is SURE to get him all excited and running around in circles!!!

But, honestly, he thinks almost EVERYTHING we do while training is a game too… which is just the way I want it!

Charley loves all of the above plus he LOVES treibell. I throw a soccer ball size ball and he pushes it with his body back to me. He especially loves pushing the ball through the tunnel. He LOVES all of his training but especially running through the 9 foot tunnel, jumps, weaving, running through the rungs of a ladder and so on. Oh and he also LOVES catch. Not just fetching which is probably his favorite, but he loves to catch flyballs. By the way, it's best to start teaching this with kibble before moving onto balls.
