Dog Photo Challenge ~ Working Dog

Today is International ‘Take Your Dog to Work’ Day!

So, we think it’s only fitting that our theme for this week’s photo challenge is ‘Working Dog’!

That however doesn’t mean this challenge is specific to those who were able to take their dogs into work with them.  The ‘Working Dog’ theme is actually quite broad when you think about it…. read on for some of our ideas!

This Week’s Theme: WORKING DOG!

Did you take your dog to work with you this week?  If so, we’d love to see a photo of them on the job!

The ‘Working Dog’ theme though also fits for a whole broader range of dogs & things that our incredible dogs do – dogs with jobs helping people (like the incredible guide dogs, assistance dogs and police dogs) and working dogs (like those who help with herding, protecting, pulling sleds, retrieving and so on!)  We also welcome photos of dogs pretending to work – those dressed to head into the office, those ‘helping’ your check your emails, catch up on social media or with the gardening!  Maybe it’s the dogs who work hard monitoring the neighbourhood!

We don’t mind how you apply the ‘Working Dog’ theme.  You’re welcome to apply the theme even more creatively than our ideas. Don’t forget to include a comment if it might not so obvious as to how your photo fits the theme.

We can’t wait to check out all your ‘Working Dog’ doggie photos.
