Dogs Play Hide And Seek Together In Adorable Video: ‘My Heart Just Melted’

Two canine best friends brighten up social media thanks to a clip of the canine duo playing an adorable game of hide-and-seek together.

Heartwarming footage of a Dachshund hiding from his Schnauzer pal was posted to TikTok by viickyseco and has already been viewed over 13 million times, with viewers raving about the animal mating antics.

“My dogs are playing hide and seek,” reads the accompanying caption.

While the idea of ​​two dogs playing a game more associated with human children may seem fanciful, it’s likely that whatever version the two dogs play will benefit their overall well-being.

In 2018, researchers at the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna found that interactive games can help older dogs stay alert and engaged while challenging them to develop new skills.

In a series of studies, they trained a group of dogs to use touchscreen and tablet games with their paw or nose. Touch at the right time and a treat would be released.

The dogs participating in the study quickly learned how to play the game, which grew more complicated as the difficulty increased.

The researchers found that the dogs playing the games experienced an uplift in mood, as evidenced by tail wagging and general agitated behavior.

The dogs also showed increased eagerness, or motivation, to complete tasks, while tests showed that the levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, present in the dogs had decreased significantly.

The dogs’ owners, meanwhile, reported an improvement in their behavior at home.

Viickyseco’s clip is the perfect demonstration of the power of play among pets, with the two dogs featured developing a range of skills, be it the schnauzer looking for his four-legged friend or the dachshund trying to evade capture.

In the video, the dachshund can be seen “hiding” as he playfully peeks around a doorway while his schnauzer friend does his best to find him.

After peeking through the door of each room down the corridor seen in the footage, the Schnauzer proceeds to the kitchen where the dachshund is hiding without him knowing.

However, the pet pooch is soon spotted, leading to a playful reunion with the two pets happily running away together at the end of the video.

Her effort has proved popular, to say the least, with fans flocking to comment on the clip. Oneloveto2MJ said, “This is sooo freaking CUTE” and lillian711 declared, “Oh my god. My heart just melted.”

Philana Marie Boles commented, “TikTok should definitely get the TikTok of the Year awards and this should definitely win,” while Taydollasigh praised the dachshund’s efforts, writing, “He’s so elusive, the timing is impeccable.”

5stuckinreverse was similarly effusive in her praise, particularly loving: “The way he peeked around the corner” at his playmate. Marzipancake10, on the other hand, was stunned by their apparent ability to play the game, commenting, “You’re so smart.”
