Dog Photo Challenge ~ My Dog & I

Puppy Tales Dog Photo Challenge ~ My Dog & I

Photos of you and your dog are an important part of both your stories.

They celebrate and cherish the incredible connection that you have and the companionship that you bring to each other.  As we all know, our dogs are our best friends!

(If you’re not familiar with the Dog Photo Challenges, there’s some info at the bottom of the post)

This Week’s Theme: MY DOG & I!

Not sure how to put yourself in the photo?  Don’t love to be in photos?   I’ve a couple of suggestions for different ‘My Dog & I’ photos:

  • Hand the camera over and ask someone to take a photo of you together.
  • Use a selfie stick or camera self timer, so that you can photograph yourself in the frame.
  • Photograph your dog and your shadow whilst you’re out on your daily walk.
  • Photograph a part of you with your dog – your dog at your feet or your hand while your dog giving you a shake or Hi-5.
  • Look for reflections of the two of you together.

We can’t wait to see photos this week of your and your dog together!

Sharing your ‘MY DOG & I’ Photos

Meeting and hearing all about your dogs and the love you have for them makes our day! There’s lots of ways to share your photos for this weeks challenge:

  • On Facebook – Post your photo under the theme post when it appears on Facebook.
  • On Instagram – Tag your photos that fit the theme with #pt_mydogandi so we can find them!
  • In the Comments – Share your photo in the comments below. If you have photos on other photo sharing sites (like 500px or Flickr) then feel free to leave a link to your photo in the comments.

However you share, don’t forget to include your dogs name/s. If there is a great story, or puppy tale, that goes with your photo them we’d also love to hear it! Especially if you’re sending us something creative and we may not immediately ‘get’ how your photo fits the theme!

What are the Dog Photo Challenges?

We know you guys, our Puppy Tales friends, love to share photos of your gorgeous dogs! Our Facebook page is filled with them daily and we receive lots via message and email too. We LOVE to see them! We also want to share our favourites….. each week the best will be shared on our Puppy Tales Facebook Timeline Cover! It needs to be updated frequently and we couldn’t think of anything better than sharing your Puppy Tales!

So we developed the simple idea of a weekly challenge allowing you to share your best dog photos! And the best bit is that it gives you an extra reason to hang out with your dogs over the week and to be taking more photos of them. If you already have photos that match the theme, then you’re welcome to share those too. There will be many themes throughout the year, so the opportunity to share your dog photos often will be sure to come up frequently! Don’t forget to come back to check for the new themes each week!

Each Friday we will post a photo challenge theme for the week. You can upload over the weekend and the following Tuesday we will pick our favourites to update the Puppy Tales Facebook page with! We will also share a couple on Puppy Tales instagram!
