Over the last two years observing at dog parks, I have noticed that some dogs seem to love to chase others, and some love to be chased. Hershey Kisses never chases another dog, but quite often I interpret her to be teasing another dog to chase her.

I was wondering if others observe the same thing and how many of us have chasers verses chasees? I get in trouble with the DW and DDs when I tell them that HK is just like a human girl. Loves to be chased, but doesn't want to get caught.

Zoe is a chaser. I have not taken her to a dog park in a long, long time, but when I did it was hilarious to watch. A dog like a JRT in the front with dogs of varying heights all in a line running everywhere...my Zoe right in there with them with that tongue hanging down to the ground. My other two are not either chasee or chaser; they are hang next to momma types.

Oh, that's so true! We definitely have a chaser and a chasee at our house. Simon LOVES to be chased! He goads Angus to chase him, then he will run like a mad devil around the yard, even after Angus has stopped and is just looking at him like, "Oh-K..." :D

If Angus isn't out there, Simon will try to get me to chase him. I can't run like that, obviously, but if I just stand in one place and lunge at him when he goes by, that seems to be enough for him. :p

We have a chasee here. And usually she'll observe at the DP one dog chasing another and decides to participate. She's not very often the chasee and when she is she usually isn't fond of it and will try and turn the game around so that she's the chaser again. Sometimes that is not successful though when the other dog doesn't want to be chasee either! :)

Hmmmm....I think Shelby prefers to the the chaser, especially with same size dogs, when she is playing with smaller dogs she likes to be chased, there is a pug at the dog park that she plays really well with, his name is Dex, such a cutie, funny to watch him chase Shelby around the park.

My beloved Bess was never socialized around other dogs so, unfortunately, she didn't play with any of them.

But Puff loves being chased -- I call it her game of "The Lions Chasing the Wildebeeste"

The other peeps at our weekly Saturday Labfests are always delighted when she takes off on her huge great circles in the park (usually roughly 100 yards/30 meters in diameter) with a string of other dogs following her. She used to do this 4-5X an hour earlier in her life but now, at age 7, it's usually only once or twice. It does give her and the others some very good exercise.

For a few years when she was younger, she used to finish off these runs by juking, threading, her way through the group of people watching them run, never touching anyone. We peeps and the other dogs were never as lucky with the pack following. Fortunately, :D she rarely does that anymore.

Peanut is a chaser/chasee, if she's in the mood to play. She swings both ways. :cool:

Baloo is a retrieving fool, but when he does actually play with other dogs, he's a chaser. Mostly because they just stole his retrieving toy. :rolleyes:

I think some of the Ontario Labfest people may remember when Phoebers led a huge butt tuck through the agility course at Royackers...she had all the dogs chasing her...that was definite evidence of how much she loves it!

Rhys is a chaser, Ruby loves to be chased, but since Gin came along, she doesn't get chased at all. Rhys and Gin are bestest friends, and Rhys rarely chases Roo any more.
