Roll over into some fun activities for your beloved fur baby! They roll over their toys, in the mud, and across your floor. But their favorite place in the world to roll is through the grass. Whether it’s simply in their nature or they’re marking their territory, it’s plain adorable, and we love to see them stand up from the task, tail wagging and doggie tongue hanging out of a smile.

Activity description
Your dog loves being outside, down low and rolling in the green grass. Maybe it’s fall time, and they’re still rolling in the brown grass and leaves. No matter the season, they’re rollers. They live to roll, and you want to make a game out of it. You don’t have to go to a lot of trouble or expense to have a good time with your pup. Just take a look around your home and yard, and you can create a Roll Over Obstacle Course that you can guide your dog right through. Get ready for some fun on the ground!
Step
1
Gather the materials
Wander around your house, apartment, yard, or porch. Look for anything like a chair, cardboard box, or stool that your dog may fit underneath. You might pick up some small tables, ropes, or buckets. This will be your design, so get creative. Basically, you need objects that your dog can go under and around.
Step
2
Set up
Put your creativity to work! If you have some extra hands around, invite others to help. The process is easy if you’ve got help. It also makes cleanup easier. Tie ropes off for your pet to go under, and set up tables and chairs. All of this will keep your dog near that grass that they love.
Step
3
Roll and play
Lead your pooch through the obstacle course. You may have to use treats at first. They might have to walk under a table and belly-crawl or roll under the rope lines and stools. If you have a little human along for the game, they might even help you show the dog exactly what to do.

Activity description
Remember that game you used to play at pool parties when you were a kid? Well, you can bring the fun to your dog now as well. Doggie Limbo encourages your dog to get down and roll or belly-crawl under the rope or broom (whichever you choose). You may even have an actual limbo bar, in which case you are the coolest! If you have children or even super goofy and fun-loving friends, invite them to play as well. This can be a good time for your pup and the people you love. Get ready to limbo, dog-lovers! Ready? Set. Limbo!
Step
1
Prep
Locate a “limbo bar.” This can be a true limbo bar that moves to different levels, or you can make your own from a rope or a long shower rod or broom. Basically, anything that’s fairly long and narrow that bears resemblance to a limbo bar will work. Also, if your pooch likes music, crank up some jams!
Step
2
Train
Explain the game to your pet. If you’ve got two extra sets of hands, they can control the limbo bar while you and your doggo travel underneath. After your pet passes underneath, lower the bar. Continue to move the bar lower and lower each time they walk, roll, and even crawl underneath.
Step
3
Play
It’s a game for the indoors or outdoors. Your dog may hit the bar a little at first, but maybe they’ll soon learn that the object is to pass under without touching the limbo broom, rope, or rod. This is great to play in large groups. When the bar is as low as anyone can go, start the game over!

Pooch Roll Up

Old blanket, towel, or cloth

Activity description
For this game, you’ll need a piece of material that will fit over your dog. Pooch Roll Up is essentially great for dogs with high IQs. It’s a mental game! As much as it involves rolling around, it’s also a test of critical thinking skills, patience, and persistence. This can be so much fun that the kids in your life might like to play. If your dog can’t get enough of rolling in the grass, maybe they’ll enjoy the challenging roll you’re about to throw at them. Hopefully, when your pup sees you walking down the hall with a towel or blanket, they’re going to get very excited about one of their favorite games.
Step
1
Choose the material
The blanket’s size needs to be appropriate for your pet. A Dachshund's roll up towel is going to look much different than a German Shepherd’s cloth. Essentially, the material needs to “fit” the dog. Old quilts, beach towels, and sheets make great obstacles for this game.
Step
2
Roll up
Roll your pup up in the material. The object of the game is for the dog to roll free. If your pet learns by example, then by all means, demonstrate the action. Command your dog to lay and work to quickly roll them up, burrito-style. Their task is to work and work until they have rolled out of the challenge.
Step
3
Keep on rollin'
Keep playing until they tire out. You can take turns as well. Your buddy will probably love watching you get down on the ground and roll yourself up. They might even give you puppy kisses as you roll and roll to free yourself. They’ll leap with joy, and they’ll certainly recognize the fun in your laughter and participation.

Uphill Roll

You’ve probably rolled down a hill before in your life. You can do this with your dog, but make it challenging. Have the family and your pet try to roll back up the hill. This is great exercise. Turn it into a race!

Discovery

If your dog likes to roll in grass, they probably also like to simply be near the grass. Take a walk through your tall grass next time before you cut it. You can also play this game in an open meadow. If all looks safe, toss your pup’s toys out into the grassy field and let them work to find it in the weeds.

Conclusion

You’re on a roll with ideas! Now it’s time to get out there and try this. Most of the games can be played indoors if you have a large enough area. Some are best left to the great outdoors, though. Either way, your doggo is about to be one entertained good boy or girl. Get ready for a whole lot of excited panting and tail wagging!
