• Holyrood Dog of the Year

Holyrood Dog of the Year 2017

 

Members of Scottish Parliament and their dogs have been invited to take part in the first ever Holyrood Dog of the Year competition on Monday 8th May 2017, organised by the Kennel Club and Dogs Trust, who host the famous annual Westminster Dog of the Year competition.

Politicians and their dogs will turn out en masse to demonstrate their political and canine clout and the event will see some of Scotland’s most ‘pawfect’ political pooches battling it out for the chance to be named as the first ever Holyrood Dog of the Year.

The event, held by the two biggest canine welfare organisations in the UK, will raise awareness of the issues affecting man’s best friend today and highlight the unique relationships between MSPs and their dogs.
