Today is January 1st! Bring on the slew of New Years Resolutions that don’t usually survive past February or March. I know I’ve made an embarrassingly large number of “commitments for the new year” that I didn’t stick to.
They key to successful resolutions is to pick:
- Something that’s so easy it’s hard to fail at.
- Something so fun that doesn’t feel like work.
- Something that builds on things you are already doing or resolutions you made last year.
One thing I always strive to grow is the amount of adventure my dogs get to experience. For us, adventure means more hiking, more camping, more traveling, and even more walks around the neighborhood. The bonus is that it will get them, and me, in better shape. But because that is a side-benefit to the goal, and not the goal itself, it feels more like fun than work.
I want you and your dog to have more fun this year too. That’s why I’m hosting, along with Trust Your Trail and Oz the Terrier, the #WoofingAdventure Instagram contest again this year! (fun fact: Oz hosted the contest with me last year and Trust Your Trail was one of the contest winners whom we’ve become friends with over the past year)
There are even more prizes up for grabs this time around. This is what you could win:
Prizes totaling over $400!
- Rumpl High Performance Original Puffy Throw
- Hurtta dog jacket: your choice of the Extreme Warmer, Ultimate Warmer, or Summit Parka
- Hurtta Free Hand Leash
- Hurtta Bounty Dog Treat Bag
- Zuke’s Mobility Functional Dog Treats
- Zuke’s Endurance Functional Dog Treats
- CAIRN Subscription box (for the adventurous humans)
There will be three prize packages… so there are THREE CHANCES TO WIN!
The contest drill will be the same as last year: follow the sponsors, post a new photo, hashtag it with #WoofingAdventure, and tell your friends about your new years commitment to more adventure. Be sure you are following us – @youdidwhatwithyourwiener – @oztheterrier, and @trustyourtrail now and then watch for the contest announcement and FULL RULES on January 1st.
The contest announcement image will look like this:
The contest requires that you post a NEW photo of your dog, or you and your dog, on an outdoor adventure. The photos will be judged and the top three will win a prize package. Get your snapping fingers ready, and your creative juices flowing, by checking out last years photo entries.
Be sure to check our Instagram account on January 1st for the FULL RULES.
Good luck. And most importantly… HAVE FUN!
