human games and exercise

coton de tulear with sockI like to keep my humans fit and healthy by making sure they get lots of exercise.

If you need to give your humans some runtime, get a smelling thing (sock) and walk past your humans with it. They will get very exited!

They love to chase you and it's a good way to give them some nice easy runtime. They love it! They will yell and shout and run round and round.

If at the end of the game the humans give up, they will give you a nice ball (treat) for the smelling thing.

Of course, you must make sure that your humans never catch you. This could lead them to thinking they are the boss, which must not happen.

To do this game you need to get a toy - one of yours. Give it to them - they will throw it. Bring it back for them and they will throw it again, and so on. It's a good way to give them paw runtime.


To take your humans on a walk get a lead. Take it to the humans. They will put it on you. You get to choose which one you want by standing next to it. (I usually put the most bossy one on the lead as it keeps them under control). If you pull on the humans lead they will have to go with you. Stop suddenly and the human will have to drag you along. It may hurt a little but it's the only way on a walk. It is good to keep changing direction to. A walk will exercise your humans brain as well as their body.

Note: Stop at the run roads or your human might get hurt.

You have some good ideas and strategies here Luigi!
I like the sock idea.
So who is the most bossy human in your house?
