The great dog challenge 2020

You'll have the entire month of September to complete the challenges, but don't wait, get out with your pup and get some fresh air and have fun!  Prizes will be given throughout the month of September and at the very end. 

@ Piedmont Park Challenge

This will be a chance to get out in the beautiful Piedmont Park in a socially distant way.  You and your dog can meander through the park anytime throughout the month of September.  On September 1st, we will post the Challenge Map to show you where all of the Challenge signs are throughout the park.  At each Challenge Sign, you will be given instructions as to the challenge to take on!   It's super easy to participate:  You will get to enjoy the challenge and then post a pic or video.  Each challenge will list the specific instructions.


You both (you & your pup) can win prizes for completing the Challenges and being creative together! You need to do a minimum of 10 Challenges to qualify.  The more Challenges you do the more times you are placed in the drawings to WIN to be awarded at the end of September

PRIZES listed below. 

In addition

  • Some of the Challenges have extra give aways awarded as you complete that Challenge. 
  • Each week throughout Sept: The most creative pic/video will WIN!

@ Home Challenge:  

This will be an opportunity to participate in all of the Challenges in your own home or your own backyard.  The @ Home Challenges will give you and your dog interactive activities to laugh together, cuddle, be silly, play and just show off together!  You will get to return just a smidge of that unconditional love that your dog gives you daily by participating together as a team.
