This year, we will be dividing the 'best looking dog' categories into pure breed and mixed breed due to the overwhelming numbers that entered at the last show. However, we are not looking for pedigree certification or breeder information!  For example, if you have a dog that looks like a distinguishable breed such as a chihuahua, Shih Tzu or terrier breed, you will be eligible for this category.

Whether you have siblings that look alike, dogs that look totally unlike one another, or you partner with a friend or neighbour's four-legged friend, all pairs are welcome.  We are judging on cuteness and 'aahh' factor!

This year, we will be dividing the 'best looking dog' categories into pure breed and mixed breed due to the overwhelming numbers that entered at the last show. Whether you have a Baja mut or an American, Canadian or overseas mixed breed, we're happy to see  all shapes and sizes as long as they fit the under 40 lb requirement for this category.

Best Looking Dog - Mixed Breed (over 40 lb) ** NEW **

This category is for amateur doggies to show off their skills; from frizbee and ball catching to dancing and singing, all are welcome.  

Dog Most Like Its Owner ** NEW **

This year, we will be dividing the 'best looking dog' categories into pure breed and mixed breed due to the overwhelming numbers that entered at the last show. However, we are not looking for pedigree certification or breeder information!  For example, if you have a dog that looks like a distinguishable breed such as a labrador or a poodle or German Shepherd, then you will be eligible for this category.

This is a unique test of your dog's obedience skills. Can he/she come when you call them? Great! Can they do it through a tempting array of distractions without stopping? Hmm. Lots of fun to be had in this category.


‚ÄčTemptation Alley treats are provided by the organizers, so this activity may not be suitable for dogs with certain food allergies.


Best Looking Dog - Pure Breed (under 40 lb)

Best Trick or Skill

We couldn't believe the creativity at the last show, so we're looking for the same and more at the next event!  As long as your dog is safe and doesn't overheat, we're looking forward to some fantastic costumes again in 2017!

Best Looking Dog - Mixed Breed (under 40 lb) ** NEW **

Best Costume - Sheila Marshall Trophy

At the last show we saw some fantastic owner and pet combinations!  So this year we made it into a category all by itself.  Whether you naturally look like your dog, or you are dressing up as one another, we're looking for the pair with the closest resemblance.
