    dogs love balls, especially tennis balls. They love to catch and return them. They love frisbees. Teach him to fetch and return and he will play for hours.

    haha i always feel like my dog looks bored all the time too. I take her outside and play fetch she loves that. Anything to do outside actually she loves. We play tag around my bushes but not all dogs would do that. Get a tug of war toy or some treats to train her. A dog wants nothing more than to please their owner so by learning, they are enjoying, even if you cant tell

    how to play: throw tennis ball across yard, dog runs after it and brings it back to you and repeat

    sometimes you have to chase them to get the ball back but they like it

    Why not sign up for a couple of different classes? Call your dog’s breeder and they can refer you to your local kennel club. Kennel clubs hold obedience and agility classes on a regular basis. This is much better than teaching your dog stupid dog tricks, such as fetching, which only teaches your dog an obsessive behavior.

    Why don’t you teach your dog fetch. It could be a great game to not only play with your dog but with your family. So come on and lets head to your back yard to play a game of fetch!

    Agility. It’s loads of fun for both the dog and handler. Jumping, weaving, ducking, running. TONS of fun. Check with a local kennel club about starting classes.

    my dog loves the game of find it … i get her to sit in the kitchen and watch me take out some treats … i go and hide the treats around the living room and then call out find it … and she comes running … i count how many she has found and when there are no more i say no more and call her to me and tell her she is a good finder :O)

    Teach your dog how to play Hide & Seek (yes, it’s a dog’s game too!) and how to catch a frisbee. You could also get in some Agility classes. I’m going to do agility with the next dog I get.
