    DefaultCan you "set off" your dog(s)..??

    Every morning after our walk we come back in the house and the harnesses/leashes come off. I go to the kitchen and get some juice.

    I meet Baloo head on walking out of the kitchen (He meets me here every morning, same spot.)

    We stop. Meet each others gaze. Small smile starts to form..... he tenses......I tense.....

    And then I break into the MONSTER WALK!! I turn my feet out to the sides, swing myself left and right and stomp towards him in little hurried steps.

    This sparks a crazed butt-tuck session in which he does numerous laps around the main floor. ;D ;D

    Tell me other people do silly stuff like this. Tell me I'm not alone!!

    I think I will mourn big time If the MONSTER WALK ever fails to get him all hyped.

    I can't say I do the monster walk, but I do play a game of "when am I gonna bail?". He know it's coming. If I wait too long he'll bark at me.

    I do the monster walk in our front yard when she has a ball. Hope the neighbors aren't watching. :-[

    i don't do the monster walk you described, but i do something similiar. works everytime, and it's always fun for all.

    I'm bad. I get my girls riled up by saying "Dave's home"....even if he's not. They start running & butt-tucking around the house from the front window through the dining room & kitchen. ;D SAfter a few times...they will go to the window & I guess realize his truck ins't in the driveway & the gargare door has not opend yet. :
    Silly girls!!

    I get Billie by clapping my hands really fast and asking her "do you have the zooomies????" and yelling "WEEEEEEE" and off she goes. One day she had the butt-tucking zoomie fit from hell and I did that and now I can get her started just by doing that little clapping thing...and it's sooo cute!!

    Buddy is very ticklish in the loin area on his sides just behind his ribs. If I want to set him off, I just pretend I'm going to tickle him in that area. If that doesn't do it, I'll really tickle him. That does the trick every time.

    we do it too! but usually when we're playing outside (like ball) because downstairs condo neighbors don't usually appreciate butt tucking inside!
