Dogs are known for their loyalty, love, and playfulness. They are man’s best friend and have been companions to humans for thousands of years. Dogs have a way of bringing joy and laughter to our lives, but what happens when they turn the tables and start playing pranks on their human companions?


It is not uncommon for dogs to show their mischievous side by playing tricks on their owners. These pranks range from harmless to downright hilarious, leaving pet owners in stitches. Let’s take a look at some of the funniest canine pranks that will leave you rolling on the floor with laughter.


The Classic ‘Fake Throw’

One of the most common pranks that dogs play is the classic fake throw. This trick involves throwing a ball or toy for your dog to fetch but instead of throwing it, you pretend to throw it while still holding onto it.


Your dog will chase after the imaginary object only to come back confused when he can’t find it. As soon as he realizes that there was no actual throw, he’ll give you a look like “I can’t believe you just did that.”

The Invisible Wall

Another popular prank among dogs is creating an invisible wall in front of them while they are running around or chasing something. This involves standing in front of your dog with your arms outstretched as if holding an invisible barrier.

Your dog will come charging towards you only to be stopped by this invisible wall causing him confusion and bewilderment as he tries his best efforts and fails repeatedly.

Hiding Treats

Most dogs love treats, so hiding them somewhere where they cannot find them can be cruelly funny for humans but hilarious from canine perspective! This prank involves hiding treats behind your back or under pillows while giving your pup verbal cues like “Find It!” or “Where’s The Treat?” Prompting them into searching frenzy which ends up with lots of barking & jumping around until they finally realize that there is nothing to be found.

The “Dead” Prank

Another favorite prank of dogs is the “dead” prank. This involves your dog lying on his back with his legs in the air, pretending to be dead. Dogs will often do this when they want attention or want their owners to play with them.

They will lay there motionless until you approach them, and then they’ll jump up and start playing. It’s a fun way for your dog to get your attention while also showing off their playful side!

The Unwilling Walk

Dogs love going for walks, but sometimes they can get lazy too! In this prank, you call out for your pup and pretend that it’s time for a walk only to watch him/her refuse by laying down on the ground or hiding under some furniture.

It’s funny watching our furry friends playing dead weight as we try every trick in the book from treats to toys just so we can take them outside.

The ‘Surprise’ Wet Shake

Most dogs love water and enjoy taking baths or swimming in pools. However, when it comes time for them to shake themselves dry after getting wet, things can get quite hilarious!

Dogs have a way of shaking their entire body at once which results in water flying everywhere – often onto unsuspecting humans! It’s always funny watching our puppies drenching us as an accidental bonus of drying themselves off!

In conclusion,

Dogs are amazing creatures who bring joy & laughter into our lives every day. They are intelligent animals who know how to show their playful side by playing pranks on their human companions from time-to-time. As long as these canine pranks don’t harm anyone physically or emotionally – there is no harm in enjoying some good laughs together with our four-legged friends!
