Great Places to Hide

As my friend, Mike has said, adults are not always inventive with hiding. Children are creative and fit in more places, so if a kid is available, enlist him or her! But, whether it’s you or the children hiding, be on the lookout for new hiding places in your home. Remember, your dog uses his or her nose more than any other sense when looking for you!
