Woof of the Week Instagram Winner: Exercising Dogs

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 know it’s summer and that can sometimes mean lazy days and lazy dogs, but we challenged you this week to show us your Olympics-inspired exercising dogs! We saw dogs lifting their body weight in sticks (more like tree branches), one dog playing beach volleyball with his head, dogs catching balls with their paws, a lot of track and field stars (light on the track, heavy on the field). But this week our Woof of the Week goes to Instagram user @kolsey, who’s dog would certainly win the 200M race. After all, he’s training in sand dunes and still looks like he’s going top speed. Our runner-up is @luludw888 who looks like she’s training her herd for a team relay. Check out the gallery to see our other favorites, and stay in Olympic mode because we’re continuing the athletics next week. Our theme is…


So what are you waiting for? Get snapping! And don’t forget to tune in to Dog Whisperer this Saturday at 8 PM et/pt.

We’ll see you (and your pups!) on Instagram.
