As of May 2018 the AdventureTails team will launch the Dog of the Year Competition.


Due to the huge response to our monthly Dog of the Year competition which was lauched in May 2018, and all the special doggies that were entered, it was decided that we can not just limit the award to one winner. 

The female dog and male dog with the most votes will win the overall Dog of the Year Monthly award. 

The rest of the dogs that were entered will be divided into the following sub categories, and the one with the most votes in that categorie will win the award for that category. 

The monthly Dog of the Year will therefor have the following sub-category awards that will also be announced on a monthly basis apart from the overall monthly winners:

1. Most Adventurous Dog
2. Best Dressed Dog
3. Most Chilled Dog
4. Funniest Dog
5. Best Family Portrait
6. Most Stylish Dog
7. Best dog story of the month


The ultimate Dog of the Year will be selected out of the monthly Dog of the Year monthly winners and the ultimate sub-category winners will also be selected out of the monthly winners and awarded at our Dog of the Year Black Tie Dinner 

taking place on Friday 26 April 2019 at the Clay Cafe.

So keep on entering! Next month it might be your doggy that take the prize! You can enter your dog every month if they have not won a prize yet.

NB: To vote for your favourite doggy that was entered, please make sure that you “Like” the Dog of the Year Facebook page to ensure that your vote will qualify to be counted.

Great prizes up for grabs for each months for the winners thanks to our sponsors - Posh Pet Photograph and AdventureTails Bark Runs.

Entries and voting will open every month on the 10th at 01:00am and close at 23:59pm on the 5th.


The dog of the month will be announced on the Dog of the Year Facebook page (link below), and will be posted on our website for all to see, under the various months of this page.
