At this time of year, there’s a lot of attention given to the hooman Australians of the Year. Hoomans are furbulous, but where would we be without our faithful furry friends?
Because our dogs have made such an incredible impact in our lives, Puppy Tales is proud to head up the search for the 2022 Australian Dog of the Year for the second year!
Our dogs, fur babies, canine companions and furry offsiders have brought us through an extremely tough couple of years and they have continued to contribute to society in many, many ways. To recognise the services they provide in communities, to humans and their unyielding devotion in the face of gloomy pawrents, tough times, and the occasional vacuum cleaner, we’re looking to acknowledge pooches from across Australia.
We’re looking for the canine that represents the essence of the Australian doggo — love, courage, inspiration, assistance and fur-iendship.
Is your doggo the noblest of pooches? Do they embody the spirit to be the Australian Dog of the Year? Submit your nomination below for the chance to win some pawsome prizes and of course the coveted title of Australian Dog of The Year!
We know that all doggos are deserving of acclaim, so we’re going to hand out TEN (10) Puppy Tales Photography gift cards other good bois and girls to show our appreciation for all Aussie fur babies (even if they don’t win the main prize)!
Because our doggos are as wonderfully diverse as our nation, there’s no knowing which pupper is going to earn the title of the Australian Dog of the Year. Any dog who has made an impact in the lives of people, other animals or the environment could be selected as a finalist and win! Here’s a list of some of the kinds of dogs we’d love to hear from and showcase in our awards:
Not all have an incredible su-paw talent (unless chewing on furniture is a talent!), but there’s no doubt they have all changed the lives of their hoomans!
My own dogs, Keiko and Summer, are included in this group — they give my days fun, exercise and meaning. I don’t know what my life would look like without them, and for this Aussie fur-mum, they are the Australian doggos of the decade! They, along with the many, many amazing dogs I’ve photographed as a dog photographer are the inspiration behind these awards. I want to share stories of their amazing feats, I want to highlight the very im-paw-tant jobs they are doing and I want to showcase just how incredible dogs are.
