The rules were to either sit or down your dog in a square. Then leave your dog by themselves, telling them to stay as others brought their dogs to complete the game. If your dog got up, you had to remove them and that square became open again. At one point we had 7 dogs in the squares and once one got up, they all decided to leave. So we had to start over. The blacks won the sit game. The second game they were all in a down and no one won that game but we had nine dogs all in a down/stay in a tic-tac-toe game. Pretty cool.
The game started with Sit/Stays:
|Starting the game|
|Dylan in the middle square|
|You can see the dogs looking at their handlers as they implore them to stay|
|The Blacks win as Brian gives them the release signal|
|Seven of the nine, the black Lab up top is really a yellow.|
