Get active with your mutt with a weekly challenge – #ActiveMutts

Are you up for a new kind of “challenge”?

Last month we did a 21-day dog walking challenge, but I think it was hard for people who missed the beginning to jump in. Or, people felt bad if they missed a day.

Since we all have busy schedules, I’m going to post a new “challenge” each Thursday, and if you choose to participate for that week, you can do so “silently” or you can let me know you’re in by leaving a comment.

The challenges will be things like “walk your dog in a new park” or “got to a pet friendly store” or “work on coming when called.”

They won’t be hard. The goal is to get people out and about with their dogs.

Then, the following week I’ll post all your photos and a new challenge.

Use #ActiveMutts on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram if you’d like me to share your photo on the blog. Or you can email or just post to That Mutt’s Facebook page. (Just make sure to use ActiveMutts in the subject if you email me so I know.)

Participate as often or as infrequently as you’d like. I’ll keep the challenges coming as long as people seem interested.

If you have any ideas for the challenges, you can also email those or leave them in the comments.

And if you have any questions, just let me know!

The first challenge is …

The first week’s challenge starts now and goes through next Thursday.

The challenge is: Take your dog to a new park this week or to a park you haven’t been to in a long time.

I can’t wait to see your photos!

Here are a few I haven’t posted yet from the last challenge:
