The Dog Daze game for Atari Home Computers was designed and programmed by Gray Chang, and sold by the Atari Program Exchange (APX) in the early 1980s.

Each player controls a dog that runs around on the screen. A blue fire hydrant pops up somewhere on the screen. You and your opponent race to claim it. You claim the hydrant by touching it or by shooting a bone at it. If you shoot and miss, you must pick up your bone before you can use it again.

If you claim the blue hydrant before your opponent, it becomes yours and changes to your color. Then a new blue (unclaimed) hydrant pops up somewhere else on the screen. If you run into a hydrant already claimed by your opponent, you are frozen for two seconds.

The row of hydrants at the top keeps track of your claimed hydrants versus those of your opponent. If the whole row becomes your color, you win the game.

A reckless driver comes through occasionally, knocking out claimed hydrants. You must avoid getting run over.
