Artist of the year competition. Create, send & win!

Our annual Children's Art Competition is now in its seventh year and is your chance to show off your artistic skills along with your love of dogs!

What was your dog born to do?

Every dog has a distinct personality and its own characteristics based on its breed so.... what type of dog do YOU own?  Is your dog a great companion that loves a cuddle like a toy breed? Does your dog love to run and chase like a hound? Or maybe your dog loves to work hard like the working group breeds. We welcome all dogs so if you own a crossbreed, draw or paint the breed traits your dog has! Now it’s your chance to create a piece of artwork that reflects your dog’s personality and breed. So get those pens/paints/crayons out and get drawing your dog (s).
