Dogs are great at pretty much everything. They have a superior sense of smell, and they’re fast learners, letting you train them to do a variety of tricks and chores. Best of all, they’re great at being kind and loving when you need them the most.

When it comes to hiding, however, dogs just don’t get it. These dogs tried to play hide and seek with their owners and thought they found the perfect places to hide. Boy, were they wrong!
