The Contestants

The nine contestants who stepped forward to join our most recent contest are all special. Why do we say that? Because it takes courage, and commitment, and a genuine desire to offer something to the community to step forward and offer yourself for a contest such as ours.

Every single one of you did us proud on contest weekend, without exception. We saw vibrancy, playfulness, passion, integrity, commitment, fun, and boundless energy from all of you. We saw nine incredible pups, and we can't wait to see more of you at pup events and socials throughout the coming years!

The Pack of 2017

Everyone who joins the contest each year becomes part of something greater: you're part of a large and growing community of pups and handlers who believe in being pup with a sense of joy and fun, and in encouraging and inspiring others.

Regardless of contest placement or prize distribution, everyone who joins the contest each year becomes a part of The Pack for that year – you're one of us, and we're happy to have you belong!
