Exercise should also be considered play; that's a sure way to make sure you keep on doing it! But play can be very different from exercise. A favorite playtime might be sitting on the floor with your dog, laughing at (or with!) him as you rub his tummy. You can toss his toys across the living room floor as you encourage him to bring them back. Hide a treat in one hand and tell your dog to find which hand has the treat.

Don't worry if playtime becomes silly; that's fine. You may one day find yourself saying silly rhymes as you play with his toes: "This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home ..." Being silly makes you laugh, and no one needs to see you. But playing with your dog, silly or not, is a great way to bond with him.
