I loved this one — and it made me laugh out loud. I think the idea might need a little work, but it’s ‘got legs’.

Why not have the camera-person throw the rope thing, and then see who gets it first (human or dog). If the human wins, they swap with the camera person. If the dog wins, then the human has to run back to the start!

Scott, that’s actually the idea I was working out for next year’s submission. We started late on this, so probably not the best work we could have done. Be looking for Nora to make a primal appearance again next year.

Nice I do something similar with my dog – its not as pretty as I have to learn how to sprint without tripping over my own feet. We play keep away in mimic of how she used to play with my older dog that recently passed away. I’ve tried to take on the role of play mate. I toss her toy then run after her as she tries to keep it away from me so there are lots of starts and stops and changes of direction that I can’t anticipate. The natural flow of the game is for her to… Read more »

A tired dog is a good dog! What a fun way to try to wear him out!

I loved this. I play a similar game but with a big of role reversal. I let my dog have the toy and I’ll make lunges at her and chase her around trying to get it. (My dog is well trained to “drop it” on command though).

I liked this one–chasing the puppy. (Or the other way around…) I’ve done this with my dog, too. It’s great fun!

This video is awesome. And now I wonder – I bet Grok had next to no chance of outrunning a four-legged predator on open ground. Either that or he must have been FAST.

I’d be interested to see how it would change things to do this in a moderate to heavily wooded area. Or if you could climb up on stuff (like playground equipment) to play ‘keep away’.

One day I’ll have a dog again and I’ll have to try different variations on this – it looks like fun.
