10 Fun Games for Kids and Dogs

Blowing Bubbles

Dogs will chase anything -- cats, other dogs, cars -- even bubbles. Having your child blow bubbles for the dog to catch is a fantastic game for smaller children who are 3 to 8 years old. And you know what's cool? They have special flavored bubbles made especially for dogs. Unlike soapy bubbles, these edible bubbles won't give Fido an upset stomach [source: ASPCA].

If your dog is into bubbles, then chances are they'll really be into chasing water from a hose or water gun, especially one of those Super Soakers. Tell your child that once the dog stops chasing the water or bubbles that it's time to stop playing -- and never squirt the hose or water gun in the dog's face [source: ASPCA].
