Zoom was a game I loved to play with Yalu. How do you play Zoom? What a great question. All you need is a puppy dog, a back yard, and people paws. Start by using two hands to pet the puppy on the tummy and sides—all that petting gets a puppy’s energy level up to critical mass. Once at critical mass (you’ll know you’re there because the puppy can’t wait to stand), step back, and watch the puppy take off.
It’s best if you are in the center of the yard so when the puppy runs by, that way, you get the full Zoom effect. Oh, and you have to say “Zoom” whenever the puppy passes in one direction, turn and say, “Zoom” again when the puppy runs by you again–just keep saying, “Zoom”. If you’re really good, try and touch the dog when she runs past you and if the dog is good, she’ll get close enough where you might be able to touch her, but not quite.
What does Zoom do? Well, in fifteen to twenty minutes, it wears out most puppy dogs with a minimum exertion on your part and will make for one sound night of sleep for your dog–Zoom is also known to work on young children who have problems going to sleep.
