The Wall Sit Challenge, which runs throughout October, has three levels to choose from: starting with the one-minute Beginner Beagle, the two-minute Advanced Akita and the three-minute Pro Pointer for experts.

Wall sitting is a popular strengthening exercise and involves people placing their back against a wall with their feet shoulder width apart and a little distance from the wall, then lowering their hips until their knees form right angles.

Anyone who wishes to take part can sign up via the JustGiving page at or join the ‘Wall Sit Challenge 2023’ Facebook group, where you will find demonstration videos.

Everyone taking part will receive top tips to help them complete the challenge, a daily tracker and a pair of Dogs Trust shoelaces.
