Pop Culture: ‘Squat Your Dog Challenge’ is now Latest Social Media Trend

Ever have those days when you’re heading out to work or the gym and on your way out you catch your pooch giving you those ‘Please don’t go’ eyes? I can tell you for a fact, my dog uses this look to his advantage as much as he possibly can. How can I say no to those big brown German Shepherd eyes??

Well, if you feel guilty about leaving your dog to head to the gym; apparently now you and your furry friend can work out together!

People everywhere are taking to social media to take on the #SquatYourDog challenge.

Earlier this month, a fitness blogger took to her Instagram to share a video of her squatting her dog and she called it the ‘Squat your Dog’ Challenge. Since then, people just can’t seem to get enough of it! All across social media, people with dogs of all shapes and sizes have been taking part!

The challenge is to either cradle your pooch, or drape them over your shoulders and s drape them over your shoulder or cradle them in your arms and squat away.

Even celebrities are taking part! Check out the video below:


Well, I guess I will have to give this a go when I get home from work today!!
