Things to consider:

Don’t Compete for the Prize. By doing so you are over-stimulating him as it would encourage a pushy, dominant behavior. He won’t be able to tell that the game is not the same anymore if the one involved is already a child. If encouraged, it would become out of control and things would rather get dangerous.

A person is not a toy. You, yes you, are not a toy and always remember that. Do not in any way involve your clothes, body parts as part of the game. You are not a dog, so don’t act one otherwise he would become the alpha male and would even end up biting you.

Set the rules. Ground rules are important. This would encourage control on your part. Let him learn the commands your way.

Two sets of toys. Give him two sets of toys. One is the pacifier (chew toys), pick one that he would definitely choose over your furniture, shoes and clothing. Second are the interactive types (squeaky toys, balls, tug toys), these are the ones which he would enjoy playing with you.

There are various ways on how to play with your dog. There are breeds that enjoy a specific kind of game that is instilled in their genes. So, you better do a background check on what your pekingese would love to do for his past time and engage on it.
