Welcome to the improved edition of the bestselling board game A Dog's Life by legendary designer Christophe Boelinger.

A German Shepherd, a Poodle, a Whippet, a Boxer, a Labrador, and a Fox terrier take a break from their masters in order to experience an adventure in town.

But they aren't used to taking care of themselves though. They need you, your family, and your friends to care for them!

You have to decide when your dog needs to:

  • Beg in restaurants.
  • Search through trash.
  • Deliver newspapers.
  • Fight rival hounds.
  • Drink from fountains.
  • Piddle on lamp posts.
  • Hide from the dogcatcher.

Do it right and your dog could be the first one to bury 3 bones in his den and win the game of A Dog's Life!



The dog figures are sculpted to detail and beautifully painted. Their characteristics correspond to the features of their actual breeds.




The adorable city of Dogville is the perfect playground for your family and friends. 



1. Dogs are the most popular pet in the world.

2. The figures and car model are beautiful painted superior sculpts.

3. Children will learn about actual dog life from the rules and the game itself.

4. Characteristics of our dog heroes correspond to those of their actual dog breeds.

8. The game uses no text, only symbols and pictures.  

9. Anyone can easily learn the game within minutes.

  • Why should it to be that "God" spelled backwards is "dog"? Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
  • There are six gorgeous (painted) plastic dog miniatures included in the game  - need I say more?
  • Before you throw you lovely pet from your house on the street, play this game. You have to know what it means to be a vagabond dog.
  • The game is very original and brings fun for both adults and children. This is one of the best family games I've seen in a while.
  • The theme is light and appropriate for all ages. Game play is simple, and even my three year-old can do OK with some help. My 6-year old has no problems.
  • The game simply pulls you into its atmosphere. We made a big game board of 2,5m x 1,5m for our summer camp and the children wanted to play the game all the time!
  • Definitely one the best games for family gameplay.
