Puppy Tales Photo Challenge ~ Shake

Does a dog shake photo just make you giggle?

They do me!

Every dog has a different shake style and it’s that hair that’s flying everything, the crazy legs or the wacky expressions on the dog’s face that makes every shake photo unique and paw-some!

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

This Week’s Photo Challenge Theme: SHAKE

This time of year in Australia, so many of us hit the beaches with our dogs.  It’s the weather for it and the longer days give us more time in the evenings – perfect for a beach romp!  But you know what happens after a dogs been for a swim…. the shake it off!  Inspired by some recent shake photos of our pack, this week’s photo theme is ‘Shake’!

You’re welcome to apply this theme creatively or imaginatively!  And your dog doesn’t have to be wet or giving a post swim shake – they could simply be shaking out their coat!

Some ‘SHAKE’ Inspiration

In these inspiration photos we have:

Top: Border Collie Rosie giving us a big shake – is it just me or does it look like she’s smiling?

Middle: Border Collie Cross Billy really enjoyed shaking off the water and getting everyone around him wet! And it’s crazy face Liz the greyhound post swim.

Our Summer giving a big shake after she fetched the ball.  I love the patterns the water droplets can make.

It’s Greyhound Betty and Japanese Spitz Keiko showing off their shake style.

Bottom: Hudson the Kerry Blue Terrier, showing that you don’t need to be post swim or wet to shake it off!

Sharing your 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_shake 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!

On Mondays we will post a photo challenge theme for the week. You can upload throughout the week, tag your photos on instagram 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!
