New research out reveals that dog owners post about their beloved pets on social media six times a week.
And so to celebrate just how much our dogs are a part of our lives (in the real world as well as online) a new competition has been launched inviting dog owners to put their pets – and themselves – to the test in the 2018 Chuckit! Challenge competition.

The competition ran in 2016 and 2017 and over a thousand entries filtered in. This year winners can get their hands (paws) on a host of prizes from Chuckit!, including dog toys and courtesy of Forest Holidays, a luxury log cabin holiday worth £1,000 in their chosen UK location.
Will Baggaley, UK brand manager for Chuckit! said, “After the success of the Chuckit! Challenge in the last two years, we wanted to give our fans another opportunity to take part in the competition, and this time show off their dog’s skills in front of an amazing panel of hand-picked judges.”
This year, dog owners will have until the Summer to submit their dog’s most impressive action shots with their favourite Chuckit! toys to the brand’s Facebook and Twitter pages, using the hashtag #ChuckitChallenge. From there, entries will be judged by a selection of pet industry and social media pupstars, who hold an impressive combined social following of over 60,000: Finn for Change, the West Midlands Fire Dogs, Kim O’Meara from K9 Magazine, Dogs on Adventures and Bertie Lakeland.

Finn likes to think of himself as the ultimate Chuckit! enthusiast, so we definitely know what we are looking out for and hope to see some creative and high energy shots of dogs who look like they are really enjoying themselves!”
