14 Dogs Make Hilarious Attempts at Playing Hide and Seek

Hide and seek is one of my favorite games to play with kids. And dogs love to play the game too. There’s always that adorable moment when you realize the young and furry participants haven’t got the hide technique down just yet. These dogs are like that. They make some attempts at hiding that are hilarious! They may not be so good at hiding but I bet they’re awesome at seeking.

Hiding under the bed is always a classic! There’s the hide under the bed, head first…

And then there’s butt first.

But sometimes you get spotted too easily.

So you can always try an option no one has ever used before. They will never suspect!

Wherever your dog may hide, be sure to give them a cuddle and a reward at the end of your playtime!
