Wrapping Up the #FallFitDog Challenge

These past few weeks, we've had so much fun coming up with ideas for the three challenges at the Fall Fitness Challenge, sponsored by ABOUND. Along with our FitDog Friday co-hosts SlimDoggy and My GBGV Life, we introduced three fun challenges to help keep you and your pups fit heading into the holidays and winter months.

If you missed them, here's a quick recap:
As the #FallFitDog challenge comes to a close, this week we're taking a look at some of the great ideas you all shared. And, we hope to see more at this weekend's Blog Hop, too!

But before we share some of our favorites, don't forget to enter the super ABOUND giveaway where four winners will each receive a prize pack valued at over $200!  Head over to our giveaway post for all the details!

Now, here's what you've been up to!

Bella at Tiffany's Diamond Dogs showed off her winning form on the fun circuit they created in their backyard.

Buzz at K9sOverCoffee shows off a new trick he learned that has practical as well as fitness benefits!

Sharon Gilbert's pups Schooner and Skipper love to swim. Take a look!

Last weekend, Rocco and his pals at Johann The Dog, had some of their own fitness fun. We headed up to Tallulah Gorge in North Georgia hoping to see some fall color. Turned out it was a little early for color, but we still had a great day and a fun hike.

We'll share more hiking photos in a future post... and we hope to get out hiking again soon to catch more fall colors!

Thanks again to ABOUND for sponsoring the FitDog Friday Fall Fitness challenge and for providing the terrific prize packs.

If you're not familiar with ABOUND, it was founded on the belief that pet foods could be better, not just by a little, but by leaps and bounds. They envisioned a pet food that used all-natural ingredients, contained high-quality proteins as the first ingredient, and included real vegetable and wholesome whole grains. ABOUND recently added a grain free line that more closely mimic your pet’s natural, ancestral diet. ABOUND Grain Free recipes are protein-rich and feature easy-to-digest carbohydrates, with none of the grains that some pets find difficult to digest.

Next week we'll unveil the four giveaway winners, AND we'll give out a few awards to #FallFitDog participants! Hope you all had fun with the challenges!

The fun and games continue every Friday with FitDog Friday, the weekly Blog Hop brought to you by To Dog With LoveSlimDoggy and My GBGV Life to promote a healthy active lifestyle for pets (and their people, too!). Join in every Friday by linking up your FitDog story or visiting the blogs in the hop.
