A dog moves up and down on the left side of the screen, while a few items are found on the right. The player must press when the dog is aligned with the food item (which can be a bone, a piece of meat or an apple) to make it stretch and eat it. If the dog eats a non-food item or nothing at all the game ends in a failure.
