Dog ownership brings untold rewards, but let’s face it, having a dog can be challenging too. You may have already seen that we’ve launched a new competition, #Ohmydog, aiming to find the nation’s cheekiest dogs by asking people to share their funniest, laugh out loud stories.
We’d love it if you could help us share the fun and put some smiles on people’s faces at this difficult time. There are two ways you can help … firstly, we’d love you to share your own story and ask your followers to get involved using the #Ohmydog and tagging Dogs for Good into the post, or if you were simply able to share our post and encourage others to share stories, that would also be fantastic.
On Twitter, the post is here:
We’ll share the four best stories on our website and the winner will be decided by public vote..
There is a serious side to all this: we want people to know that there is help out there. By understanding your dog’s natural instincts and behaviour you can hopefully avoid a few of those toe-curling moments… or at least understand more about why your dog behaves the way they do.
The competition will run until March 1st.
We hope you’ll be able to share our campaign.
October is Dogtober!
October is Dogtober, a month-long event to raise money for Dogs for Good. This year we need your support more than ever before. It’s time to celebrate every dog, not only ours. Incredible things happen when you bring people and dogs together. If you have a dog in your life, you’ll know the joy and simple pleasures they can bring to us, especially during these difficult times..
Dogtober is a time for fun, but has a serious outcome. We get over 5,000 requests for help each year and desperately need more funds to help more people. Please use Dogtober as an opportunity to tell others about our work. You can do this by sharing our success stories and blogs.
Head over to www.dogsforgood.org/events/socialpaws/ to see the many different ways of fundraising for us or take part in our very special Draw the Paw Challenge and win yourself and your dog a hamper of goodies.
Don’t forget to tell us all about it! Email us at email@example.com to let us know and post on social media, tag us in @Dogs for Good #Dogtober #drawthepaw
Post images directly to our Facebook page, tag us on Twitter and use the hashtags #dogsaregood #dogtober
Let’s make Dogtober the most fun month of the year!.
