Puppy Tales Photo Challenge ~ Action

Running, racing, jumping, catching, playing ~ all the great action moments that we love to watch our dogs do!

The happiness and joy as they do what they do, best.

This week, it’s time to capture and share your best and favourite Dog Action Photos!

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

This Week’s Theme: ACTION!

What action adventures do you and your dog love to do together?  Some of the situations and times that make for great dog action photos include:

  • A frolic in their favourite park.
  • A game of ball or fetch.
  • Running an agility course, flyball, tricks or other action dog sport.
  • A beach visit – racing the waves, chasing the surf, running after seagulls or digging in the soft sand
  • Playing with their doggy pals (maybe on a playdate!)
  • Playtime with you – chasing you, playing a game of tug or just in all having fun.

As always, you’re welcome to apply the theme creatively!

Action photos can be some of the more tricky or difficult to take – definitely not quite as easy as when they are quietly resting or sleeping.  If you want some extra help with capturing great action photos, be sure to check these 7 tips for better action photos of your dog!

We can’t wait to check out all your action photos this week!

Sharing your ‘ACTION’ 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_action 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 social media is filled with them daily and we receive lots via message and email too. We LOVE to see them! And we 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 cute Dog or 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 weekend 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 some of the photos on Puppy Tales instagram!
