DogFriendly’s Photo Competition 2019 closed on 30th November. More than 4,000 photos were entered this year.

This stunning photo of Frasier was the overall winner of the competition and chosen by our Judge BBC’s Katie Thistleton. Owner Sarah Hannant gets to take Frasier on an amazing Forest Holiday and Frasier will grace the cover of the January edition of the DogFriendly Magazine.

Category winners, as below, were based on public votes of over 27,000. Thank you so much for everybody who sent in their wonderful pictures and also to those that voted.... we are looking forward to next year's competition already.

Here is the reason Katie picked the winning photo of Frasier from the thousands of entries.

“It's such a gorgeous shot and I love how he is jumping for joy! His friendly happy personality really comes across! Also #hairgoals”

What A Poser - Inkie

Inkie's unable to walk, having a rare form of Cushing's, and so when we saw the Bluebells, I sat her amongst them, so she could have a sniff. She is still full of spirit, as we use a stroller for her. She was 15 in August 2019.

2019 Category 3rd Place Winners

Fizzy Pop Click To View High Quality Image For Fizzy Pop

What A Poser - Fizzy Pop

Fizzy is a rescued puppy farm ex-breeder, who has been home with us for 7 weeks. Fizzy is around 7 and gradually learning to love life. She is a Schnauzer x Bichon and snuggly like a teddy bear. She is the third member of our little pack. Here she is trying on her new snuggle coat by The Dog Comes First. Fizzy's fur is fine and thin so gets cold easily in this weather as she walks so slow whilst building up her muscles as she would have received no exercise in the puppy farm. She is a happy, healthy, very soft and cuddly little girl. And, of course, she is beautiful inside and out.
