This competition will run over 4 weeks and all entries are posted in the above gallery. Entries close Friday, July 14, 2017.

There are a number of different categories that dogs can be entered in to, however each dog can only be entered in one single category. 

Best Overall

Not sure if your dog fits any of the custom categories, then this one is for you. An open category to showcase your canine companion.

Most Handsome Dog

This category is for those canines who exude charm, charisma and downright good looks. You know the type, aristocratic comeliness coupled with an intelligent piercing gaze.

Cutest Dog

Show us just how cute your dog is. Naughty cute is also considered acceptable for this category. Oh and puppies, all kinds of puppies, the more puppies the better.

Active/Working Dogs

This category is for dogs that like to be active or for working dogs. Submit a photo of your dog doing what he loves best. Entrants must be high energy and loving it!

Dogs who look like their owners

Now this is for the bold, the brave, the fearless, and the ones with a sense of humour. Submit a photo of yourself and your lookalike dog.

Funniest Dog

Plenty of opportunity to showcase the clown of the household. Entries must be entertaining and chuckle worthy.

Each dog can only be entered in a single category. Multiple dog owners can enter more than one dog. For more information, please contact Natalie Martin-Remmert on or call 0447 256 277.
