Woof of the Week Instagram Winner: Dogs and Their Favorite Toys

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.

This week was the hardest theme to judge thus far due to the overwhelming amount of adorable dogs and their toys. We saw your dogs playing with their toys, snuggling, sleeping, and loving their toys, and we even saw a few buried in their toys… there were A LOT to choose from. But, there can be only one Woof of the Week, and we are pleased to announce this week’s winner is Instagram user @highseamutiny! While certainly not the snuggliest of toys, we can’t help but reward the playfulness of a pup and their tire. This week’s runner-up is @lee3 to represent the softer side, a sweetie sleeping on their beloved sock monkey.

Phew, that was hard! Be sure to check out the rest of our favorite submissions in the gallery and get ready for next week’s theme…
