Weekly Dog Walking Challenge – Week 3 #ActiveMutts

Today is the start of a new week for our #ActiveMutts challenge.

This “challenge” gives participants an informal, weekly goal to walk their dogs outside of their usual routines.

No matter where you are in the world, you can participate or follow along using the hashtag #ActiveMutts on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. I’ll post your photos on the blog each week. Or you can just “silently” participate, if you prefer that.

This week’s new challenge

Take your dog hiking.

“Hiking” can mean whatever you want it to mean. For me, it means we’ll go walking somewhere in nature, somewhat rural, and we’ll walk a little further than we normally would.

Send your pics to or use #ActiveMutts when you post.

Last week’s photos – “urban walk”

OK, it looks like some of you skipped the whole “urban” theme from last week’s challenge, but that’s OK. The point is to get out and about with your dogs.

Ace and I went for two urban walks in downtown Solana Beach, Calif., last week.

We walked to San Diego BeerWorks to celebrate our foster dog Lana getting adopted.

And today Ace and I strolled around on Cedros Avenue, and he humored me.

Thank you everyone!

Who’s in for this week’s walk?

The challenge is to hike with your dog. You don’t have to have an actual “mutt” to participate. We love all dogs, obviously!
