Dogs are naturally intelligent. They are able to learn commands easily and they can somehow understand what their humans mean. This, however, doesn’t mean that all dogs excel at making disappearing acts.
Some dogs don’t really understand how hide-and-seek works. Some of them know what the game is all about, but they aren’t aware how to properly play it. And there are dogs that have a full understanding of the game but can’t find decent hiding spots where they can fit into.
If you don’t believe that, then check out these 75 dogs that fail miserably at hide-and-seek.
1. Waiting forever
This dog did a great job in finding a good hiding spot. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have the patience to wait forever to be found.
2. No idea
He’s trying really hard not to be seen. We can all see that.
Hide-and-seek is a really exciting game. You’ll never know where the other person- or dog- might pop out.
4. Quite the logic
If he can’t see you, then you probably can’t see him, too. And he’s quite confident about it.
This is a common problem when you’re playing with your best friend. No matter how small your hiding space is, he’ll choose to stick with you.
6. Target spotted
It’s really hard to miss this one. With those tiny paws and that cute corgi butt, who wouldn’t be able to spot that dog?
7. Just the head
Considering his size, this dog is having a hard time finding the perfect hiding spot for him. When he ran out of time, he figured that hiding his head would be enough.
8. You can’t see me.
If you can’t find a good spot to hide, then just consider blending in with your environment. This dog kind of nailed it- except for his paws and tail.
9. What dog?
This dog chose to jump into a big pile of leaves to hide. It’s a pretty good place to spy on people and wait for squirrels, too.
10. The last place
When you are playing with your dog, this is probably the last place where he’s likely to hide. Why would a dog hide inside a washing machine in the first place?
11. Behind the door
This dog is like most of us. Whenever we play hide-and-seek, the first place we go to is behind a door. Unfortunately, he doesn’t get the part where he’s supposed to hide himself completely.
12. Just in case
Playing hide-and-seek can be exhausting so this dog decided that the best place to hide is behind the refrigerator door. It’s also the best place to wait for food to drop on the floor.
13. Expert level (not)
This dog thought that the best place to hide is on the bed. He even went behind one of the pillows to make sure he won’t be seen.
Why run and hide when you can just squeeze into a pile of toys? It’s both clever and cute.
15. No time
The challenging part of winning in a hide-and-seek game isn’t finding the best hiding spot. Sometimes, it’s making it on time. With all the rocks behind, this dog simply chose to bury his face in the sand.
This dog is quite clever. He didn’t have to run or squeeze into things just to hide. He just needs to lay down on the carpet.
17. The perfect spot
If you’re going to play hide-and-seek, expect to get tired and hungry after. With that in mind, the refrigerator is the perfect place to go to if you want to hide. It’s cold and it’s full of snacks.
18. When you ran out of hiding places
If you ran out of places to hide, then just do what this dog did. Cover your eyes and hope no one finds you.
19. A different reason
So, this dog was hiding when his humans came. At first, you might think that he’s just playing with them. However, if you take a closer look, you’ll get a better understanding why he’s behind that Christmas tree.
20. Because he fits
If you’re playing with this dog, you’ll probably lose. You see, his owners actually had to lift up their sofa to find their clever dog.
21. You’ll never notice.
If it wasn’t for his nose, this dog wouldn’t have been found. I guess the pillow was too small to cover him entirely.
No pain or sickness can stop this dog from playing. Even with a cone, he’s fully committed to win the game.
This dog knows how cute he is and he’s taking advantage of it. See how he chose to hide behind two adorable stuffed toys? He did that on purpose.
24. Under the table
There are two things that can happen when you hide under the table. One is that you win the game and two, you get to eat leftover foods.
25. Under the blankets
This dog nearly won the game. If he wasn’t too big for the blanket, he might have won the game. Oh well, better luck next time.
26. He fell asleep.
It looks like his owners took a really long time to find him. He fell asleep while waiting.
27. Just checking
He wanted to make sure that he’s still winning the game so he decided to take a quick look. A bad move, indeed.
28. No other choice
When you’re outdoors during winter, you don’t really have that much choice. You just hide wherever you can.
29. So tired
After hours of hiding, look how this poor dog ended up. He’s way too sleepy to even care if he’s been found.
30. Ulterior motive
Judging by how he looks at that jar, this dog isn’t really interested in the game. It seems that he’s more interested in those pretzels.
This dog almost won the game. If it weren’t for his behind and hind legs, he would have made his human his slave for the day.
32. Take a second look.
At first glance, you might think that this is just a picture of ac pile of stuffed toys. If you take a closer look, you’ll see a really patient dog waiting for his humans to find him.
33. With a little help
To succeed in life, you may need to ask for help every now and then. Well, the same is true when you’re playing hide-and-seek.
34. You’ll never find me.
This dog wanted to be extra sure that he’ll win the game. He decided to jump into his toy box and get a few stuffed toys on top of him. Despite all the effort, he still lost the game.
35. A different reason for hiding
This dog wasn’t really into playing hide-and-seek. He just wanted to hide because of his Christmas outfit this year.
36. Really trying to fit
This is probably the only hiding spot he has at home. Just look at how he’s trying so hard to make himself fit. It’s hilarious and amusing at the same time!
37. In and under the wardrobe
These two are partners in crime. One hides wherever the other one hides.
38. Under the coffee table
This duo chose a very unusual place to hide. One of them even managed to take a treat with him, just in case their human takes forever to find them.
39. Silly dog
This dog doesn’t mind how ridiculous he looks. As long as he’s there, he knows he won’t be found easily.
