Be warned: it's not as easy as it looks – and your pooch might not be too impressed...

We've seen some weird and wonderful #fitspo challenges flare-up on social media of late -- but this one seems barking mad. As we all know, squats can be tough -- but the #SquatYourDogChallenge is making them even harder.

Round ??#SquatYourDogChallenge because colonel and I are always up to hang together. Seriously so crazy that a video I posted a week ago has gained so much attention. I can not believe all the people who have joined in on this challenge!! So keep the videos coming because I'm loving it! Disclaimer: if they're too heavy, don't try it. If they don't like it, put them down. Know your animal before partaking!! Tag me in it to make my day ???????? and yes I am in my jams ?????#squatyourdog #squatchallenge @buzzfeednews @shape @todayshow . . . #fit #fitness #humpday #getfit #fitspo #dog #goldenretriever #puppy #squats #bodybuilding #wednesday #girlswholift #muscle #fitnessaddict #legs #legday #booty #bootybuilding #video #nutrition #lifestyle #lift #build #balance #fitspo #trend #fitnessvideo @amy_hayden

A fitness blogger took to Instagram to share a video of her squatting her dog -- and her hashtag went viral. If anyone wants to join me in this fun, take a video of yourself squatting your dog or pet and tag me in it!," Alyssa Greene, from Texas in the US, wrote on Instagram.
Soon enough, hundreds of adorable, awkward #squatyourdog posts flooded feeds all over the world. Want to join in? Grab your furry best friend, (carefully!) drape them over your shoulder or cradle them securely in your arms and squat away. Side note: if you have a Great Dane, you might NOT want to try this at home... Be warned though, it's not as easy as it looks – and your pooch might not be too impressed...

Momma and I did the #squatyourdogchallenge today!
