It’s not a secret that there are days that you look so good in the photos, when every single angle you make seems to be the best one so far and the light is just perfectly emphasising your definite strengths. Those are the days when you snap that selfie or your friend takes anything between 12 and 65 pics of you taking a casual stroll in the park and then even whooping 5 of them turn Insta worthy. But there is someone that will always nail the picture and will look nothing less but splendid - your dog. How proud does your furry companion make you by constantly striking the best poses and looking absolutely stunning in each shot?
The new #modelchallenge is making rounds on Dogspotting Society Faccebook and 13k users at the time of writing have submitted photos of their beloved dogs and we have decided to show you a few. The users are taking advantage of the newly sparked fascination that shows anything from dobermans to rescues to pugs to you name the breed, looking super charming.
These pups are the reason why catwalk might be renamed to dogwalk and no one might object. Here you can see 57 Bored Panda selection of photos from the #modelchallenge and we invite you to get involved and vote for your favourite doggies.
We also got in touch with two dog owners who decided to participate in the challenge and had some chats about their pooches, you can read the stories below.
Bane being all top model.
He’s an Alaskan Malamute, 100 lbs of muscle, 50 lbs of floof & is my heart dog. 💕
An interview with this fluffy giant's owner can be found in the article.
Max’s default is fierce....or just RBF. 😄
Shelley Norman Monahan, the owner of Bane, pointed out that besides being a 3-year-old, 100 lb Alaskan malamute, he loves to cuddle and never misses a chance to be the “little” spoon in bed. Her family got him when he was only a 4-month-old puppy and, well, instantly fell in love with him. “Bane is my heart dog. I’m absolutely 100% obsessed with him! His hugs calm me, he’ll wrap his head around my neck and I instantly feel better because of his calming presence and sweet spirit,” shared the young woman, stressing Bane’s superpower to enchant whoever he encounters.
She was pleasantly impressed and surprised when one time, at an outdoor festival, an actual line of people wanting to pet the friendly giant formed. “It was the funniest thing. I was with my girls getting their faces painted, looked over, and saw my husband with a legit line to pet him,” laughed Shelley, who is a visual artist just outside Chicago, IL. One of Bane’s favorite pastimes is running all around the dog park and saying hi to the humans as he plays with other dogs. Bane behaves his best when walked by their 12-year-old and Shelley pointed out that this normally attracts weird looks from passersby because of his size.
Shelley thought that her furry giant would be perfect for the #ModelChallenge as he’s very photogenic and the picture happened to be one of the best ones she has ever taken of him as that very moment, he was distracted by some ducks in the distance. The dog lover admitted that the attention blew her mind with 18k likes and 1.4 comments.

The determined canine enthusiasts have been actively participating in showing off their pooches and it seems that there’s definitely more to come.
Among the dedicated dog lovers is Clark McFarland with whom Bored Panda got in touch with that submitted a picture of his 4.5 year old golden retriever Braxton catching some delightful rays of sun. Both living in Woodlands, Texas, they raked thousands of likes and amiable comments with their #ModelChallange entry.
“I love the Golden Retriever Club and just decided to give the model challenge a go. He’s extremely photogenic so it makes sense! I absolutely love all doggos. They are the best companions and I’m not so sure what I would have done without Braxton throughout the weird quarantine year of 2020!”, admitted Clark.
The young American also laughed that Braxton the dog is kinda his doppelgänger and that they sometimes even act alike. “He’s a goofy boy and still has the energy of a puppy. He loves meeting new friends and especially new people! He knows loads of tricks and loves fetching his tennis ball”. Their favourite pastime is to look for outdoor adventures and challenge themselves to walking trails and nature preserves.
Calling himself "Embarrassing Dog Dad," Clark has created an Instagram account for his best furry friend, which you can check out here.
