Westminster Dog of the Year

Celebrating a unique bond

The competition celebrates the unique bond between man and dog - and aims to promote responsible dog ownership. The competition is open to all parliamentarians' dogs, regardless of breed, creed or pawlitical persuasion.

Adrian Burder, Chief Executive of Dogs Trust, explains: "The Westminster Dog of the Year competition is so much more than a canine beauty pageant. The competition is strictly apolitical; judges will be looking for the dogs' good deeds and devotion to their owner - rather than policies, opinions or 'bottle'."

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, continued; "The serious side of this competition is about MPs getting together with the Kennel Club and Dogs Trust to promote responsible dog ownership and develop a partnership on dog welfare issues. The competition itself is light-hearted and an entertaining day out - not least because of the unusual criteria on which the dogs are judged!"
