Dog walking challenge – day 16 #ActiveMutts

How is it going with walking your dog every day?

This 21-day challenge (details here) has really helped me stick to walking my dog every day, even on those days where I get busy or tired and just don’t want to do it.

Going for a walk is the highlight of my dog’s day. He gives me so much and is so patient with me – I owe him a daily walk.

Many of you have obviously had to deal with the weather during this challenge. There have definitely been some days around the country where it’s just not safe to be out walking. Not so for me here in sunny San Diego.

And, although I haven’t been very good at getting pictures of my dog on these walks, I’ve actually taken more than usual because of this challenge.

I’ve also really enjoyed seeing the pics the rest of you have posted.

I’m thinking about starting another “challenge” next month to keep encouraging people to be active with their mutts and sharing pictures of their adventures. I would share a collection of these photos on the blog each week.  What do you think? Would you be interested?

I shared some pics last week, but here are a few more from the last week or so:

Out for a walk

Backpack on German shepherd mix

Out for a hike with dogs

Rollerblading with your dog

I love seeing the photos of you guys out and about in various places with your dogs.

How you can win some treats from Bravo

There’s one week to go in our challenge! On Sunday I’ll be doing a drawing to give away a bag of Crunchy Delights dog treats from Bravo, which the company is providing.


To enter the drawing, simply commit to joining us on the remaining 6 days of the dog walking challenge (more details here). You just have to walk your dog every day and commit to working on a specific training goal during each walk.

Then, do one of the following:


  • Post a pic of your active mutt to That Mutt’s Facebook page
  • Email a pic of your active mutt to me at
  • Post about the challenge on Twitter using #activemutts
  • Leave a comment on any of the challenge posts such as this one


*Must have a U.S. mailing address to win the treats. Update: Congrats, Teresa!
