Active Mutts – share your dog photos

“Active Mutts” is a fun, weekly post where I share new dog photos from followers of That Mutt.

The goal is to encourage everyone to get out and about with their dogs.

If you’d like to participate, all you have to do is tag your photos with #activemutts or email them to You can also post to That Mutt’s Facebook page.

The challenge for the last week was to practice some sort of training with your dog while out and about on a walk. (photos below!)

The challenge for the next week: Practice your dog’s recall (coming when called) in a different environment.

Here are the photos you shared from the last week

Thanks for another challenge. I'm really enjoying the weekly exercises. Recall continues to be our big challenge. Baxter gets it, but he's still looking for something--anything--better to do. We had two particularly lazy recalls this afternoon. They were more challenging situations though: from one side of the creek to the other and from a favourite sniffy spot between two fields. This week's challenge is a good push to continue to practice. I just have to remember to get a picture too!

Great pictures and a great new challenge! Embarrassingly, my dog doesn't know Come.
