-Questions & Notes:

  • Variations:

    • Loose Dog: One player (loose dog) is not attached to the dog (line of players).The loose dog tries to tag the dog’s tail (player in the back of the line). When the loose dog is successful he becomes the dog’s tail and the dog’s head (first player in line) becomes the next loose dog.

    • Long Dogs: Several lines of players as dogs. The head of the dogs (first players) try to tag the tail of another dog (last player in line). When a dog’s tail is tagged the dog’s tail is added to the end of the tagging dog. The goal is to become the longest dog during a set time limit.
