‘Where’s Waldo’ is the past—it’s all about ‘Where’s Doggo’ now! Pet owners are going nuts over the #HiddenDogChallenge. They’re sharing photos of their dogs hiding in the 1.1-million-member strong Dogspotting Society Facebook group and they’re making our day. It turns out, it’s not just our feline Overlords that are great at blending in with their surroundings.

Some of these dogs are so hard to find, they look like they’re wearing ca(nine)mouflage. Others are straight-up impossible to spot while some are just goofing off. Can you find all the hidden dogs, dear Pandas? Can your friends? Let us know in the comments.

Done scrolling through this list and upvoting your fave hidden doggos? Don’t worry, we’ve got plenty more canine buddies for you to pet through the screen. Check out Bored Panda’s posts about the previous wholesome best boy and girl Dogspotting challenges here (#SmilingDogChallenge), here (#GuiltyDogChallenge), and here (#‎DidntWantADogchallenge‬).

A representative of the Dogspotting team revealed to Bored Panda that they're stuck on a few photos from the challenge as well. (So it's alright to miss one or two of these pics.) "Some are definitely really hard! You really have to be an expert at Dogspotting to find them."

According to the representative, whether or not a dog is stealthy and sneaky depends more on the environment than the actual dog. "For example, a huge white dog could be virtually impossible to find on the side of a snowy hill! Or a tiny chihuahua curled up in a blanket on the couch with only their little nose poking out. So it really is the perfect combination of dog and environment that leads to this fun challenge."

But let's say that your dog's a pro at hiding. And they like to tease you a bit, so they don't want to come out even when you call their name. The rep told us that food is the way to go if you want to coax it out of its hidey-hole. "Personally, my dog can't resist the shake of the treat bag. No matter where he is or what he is doing, if he hears a wrapper he will come running. That is usually my go-to," they said.

While the dogs in this list are hiding because they’re having some fun and a bit of a laugh (or bark), these aren’t the only reasons to be sneaky. Some dogs find dark spaces comforting and they sneak into them when they feel stressed or scared, explains Dr. David Dilmore. They can also do this when they feel confused or if they’re in an unfamiliar situation and need reassurance.

If there’s a lot of change going on recently and your pet keeps disappearing, you might want to consider spending some extra time with your dog. Calm it down and make sure that it isn’t feeling stressed.

Bored Panda previously spoke to a representative of the Dogspotting team and they explained that it’s their community members who are initiating a lot of these hashtag challenges on Facebook. Now that’s the kind of active community we can get behind! We’ve seen a lot of wholesome challenges so far and we can’t wait to see what the future brings, too. Even though these future challenges are still a mystery to us, we can be sure about one thing—they’ll feature lots of gorgeous dogs that will melt our hearts.

And in case this list made you want to get a dog (or to expand the friendly zoo you’re keeping at home), the Dogspotting team told us to just go for it and adopt.

“Now is a great time to do it! With so many people working from home, you’ll have more time to bond with your new best friend!” they said. “Contact local animal rescues and shelters in your area and they’ll be able to help you! We know this year has been very difficult for a lot of our members and the challenges have added a bit of levity for everyone."
