To celebrate the dog days of summer and the new season of Dog Whisperer we want to see your pups in all their glory. Each week we’ll be announcing a new theme – share a pic of your pooch that fits the weekly theme on Instagram by following us at @NatGeoChannels and tagging your pic #dogwhisperer.

We loved seeing all of your Patriotic Pups during week one of the Woof of the Week Instagram Competition. Check out who ultimately stole our hearts as the winner and see some of the adorable runner-ups. Keep snapping, we’re only getting started. Inspired by the recent heatwave that has swept the nation (and left many without power for days near Nat Geo Headquarters), this week’s theme is….

HOT DOGS

So what are you waiting for?  Get snapping!  And don’t forget to tune in this Saturday at 9 PM et/pt for all new episodes of Dog Whisperer on Nat Geo WILD.  From London to the Jersey shore, Cesar travels far and wide this season to help problem pups, including those of Kelsey Grammer, Jillian Michaels and Hugh Hefner.  Check out previews, past episodes and more at www.natgeowild.com/dogwhisperer.

See you (and your pups!) on Instagram.
