Dog Photo Challenge ~ Running Dog

Puppy Tales Photo Challenge ~ Running Dog

Run, run, run.  

All our dogs LOVE to run.

And it brings such a huge smile to my face watching them.

The expression of joy on their face as they face as fast as they can (and  sometimes faster than their legs can take them in Keiko’s case!), the wind racing past them pushing their coat, the sometimes crazy faces and the flapping ears!

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

This Week’s Theme: Running Dog!

We can’t wait for you to your running dog with us this week.  

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

Like every week, you’re welcome to apply the theme creatively.  And don’t forget to also share the theme with your friends who you think would love to play along!

Some ‘Running Dog’ Inspiration

Top – Look at the flying ears and huge smile on choccy labrador Rex’s face as he races.

Middle – Gorgeous goldie Bessie, running post swim, big smile and water drops flying. Another water lover is Aussie Shepherd Dizzy and here he’s running through the water after his favourite toy.

Our Keiko racing through the snow as fast as his little legs will take him!

Rosie our border collie running through mud – and loving it!  How adorable are Frank the daschund’s big flying ears as he funs?

Bottom – Kelpie Denzel doing what a working dog does best – running through a paddock.  On this occasion no sheep or cattle to work, but still tonnes of enjoyment to found in just running.

Sharing your ‘Running Dog’ Photos

Can’t wait to the photos of the adventures you’ve had with your dog/s in this week’s challenge!

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_running 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!
