Instagram Contest Aims to Solve the World's #DogMysteries

Posted by Tori Holmes
#DogMysteries Instagram Contest

Embark Veterinary and Dognition are joining forces to help solve the world's #DogMysteries, and they need your help!

It's no secret that dogs are some of the most wonderful and mysterious creatures around. They have an extraordinary ability to understand their humans in a way that no other creature is able to, but this relationship is still fairly one-directional.

This is one of the reasons why Embark and Dognition are conducting their groundbreaking study: To learn more about the secrets of a dog's body and mind. But, they can't do it alone.

With the help of some adorable dogs, the teams at Embark and Dognition are on a mission to solve some of the biggest #DogMysteries on Instagram. By sharing your own photo and the question you would most like answered, you have a chance to win some great prizes, including:

1st Place
Free bundle (worth $279) of Embark Vet dog DNA test kit and a Dognition annual membership, plus answers to your #DogMysteries questions from dog genetics expert Dr. Adam Boyko, co-founder of @embarkvet and dog cognition expert Dr. Brian Hare, co-founder of @dognition

2nd Place
Free bundle (worth $279) of Embark Vet dog DNA test kit + Dognition annual membership

3rd Place
Embark Vet bandana and signed copy of the book: "The Genius of Dogs" by Dr. Brian Hare and Vanessa Woods.
