Taking your dog for a walk is something that every pet owner has to do. There are a million things to do with your dog but walking can never be replaced. It is a chance for the two of you to get out of the house and spend some quality time together. It also allows your dog a certain measure of freedom that they love. We all know that taking a walk is the highlight of your dog's day, and yours as well. But every now and then, our walk might seem a little boring. Thankfully, there are a few games, like this one, that you can play to keep things interesting.
Step
1
Go for a walk
This is simple enough. Put on your dog's leash, and walk out the door. You could even let them choose which route to take when you leave the house. This game has a few different names, but the premise is simple. You're going to give your dog "stop" and "go" commands at random intervals during the walk.
Step
2
Choose your commands
Some people choose "red" for stop or "green" for go. You can use any term, but make sure that you practice them with your dog. As the two of you walk, you can use the stop command at busy intervals or before you cross the street. This will teach them to do so automatically.
Step
3
Random commands
When the walk gets boring for you, tell them to stop. When they do, you can give them a lot of praise and even a dog treat. You can make them wait for a while, or tell them to go immediately. This simple game will make walking more interesting and make your dog smarter, more alert, and more likely to listen to commands.

Dogs are social creatures. Sometimes you can't always have more than one dog, or your dogs are getting bored with each other. Just like humans, dogs need social interaction. You can do the normal things like taking them to a dog park and a host other activities, but you could also start a dog group to do all those things anyway. A dog group is a group of pet owners who meet up and bring their dogs to do fun things to do together. You could include your friends or use social media to find pet owners in your area who would want to meet up arrange activities for your and their dogs.
Step
1
Spread the word
Let your friends know what you want to do and ask them to tell their friends. You could tell some people at work or just generally speak to people that you know. It might surprise you to know how many people would like more social interaction for their dogs.
Step
2
Use social media
You could use your preferred social media app to see if there isn't already a dog group in the area that you could join. If not, then you can start your own group. Find people in your area with dogs and ask them if they would be keen to join the group.
Step
3
Choose wisely
This is a fun idea, but make sure that you choose the people in the group wisely. Some dogs are bullies that might make it unpleasant for everyone else and you will have to communicate with these people, so do not choose people who might make your experience unpleasant. But otherwise, have fun with it!

Summer is hot. The infamous summer heat makes us sweat, causes our skin to burn and forces us to wear flip flops when we go outside. The heat can be just as unpleasant for your poor dog. This fun activity is a classic that many of us did when we were kids and feeling hot. If you don't have a pool or don't feel like taking your dog for a swim in the bath, you can wrangle up a sprinkler or a hose and get ready for some fun. Your dog will appreciate it more than you might know. And you'll have a lot of fun in the process.
Step
1
Get ready
Whether you use a hose or a sprinkler, you need to get ready for the fun and games in the sun. Make sure that you put on plenty of sunblock and your swimsuit, there's no way you're coming out of this dry. Set up the system and get your dog excited.
Step
2
Demonstrate
Your dog might be a little confused at first, so show them what to do. Don't be shy, just hop right in and play with the water like no one is watching. Your dog will soon catch on and want to join in the fun.
Step
3
Have fun
Forget the fact that you're supposed to be an adult, and play as though you were a kid. Chase the sprinkler, spray yourself down with the hose, it doesn't matter what you do. Just have fun with it. It will be a nice break from the summer heat and your dog will appreciate the chance to cool down.
