Hello everyone I am new to this site. I was wondering if anyone had good ideas for games or activities, espcially playtime, that is multiple dog friendly?


I have 4 dogs and have been trying to think of games and such to do with all of them, or at leas with my larger 3. My maltese has learned to stay out of the way when the big dogs are playing. Sushi my dobie has some issues sometimes with sharing with our new dog, mostly food or if he goes for a toy that she thinks is hers. Currently we go for lots of walks, play with the hose, play "fetch" with two different toys to avoid any issues and basic training as a group.

I can recomend bubbles, I'll dig out an old video of abby and jeter. It is their wet weather activity in the garage, just be sure to use chemical free bubble formula. they chase, jump and snap at the bubbles. Its very fun

I put a sock or some other 'thing' for them to chase at the end of a stick (actual branch and sometimes they chase a branch - no sock thingy needed) and laugh my head off at all 3 dogs trying to catch up with it, making myself dizzy in the process.  They can get it off, and run with it, until they tire of my Dobie sock/branch hogging, and then I take it back, attach it, and do it all over again.

Thank you for the ideas! I would have never thought of bubbles, I wonder if any of the animals at work would like them.  3sacrowd, I play a similar game with my cats and they love it I will have to see if the dogs will like it too.
