Dogster’s Wagalicious Photo Contest

Thanks for entering the photo contest!

Stay tuned RIGHT HERE on June 27 to find out the finalists and VOTE for the lucky winners in all three categories. 

Winning dogs will be featured in Dogster magazine, on and on our social pages! PLUS, they’ll snag additional prizes from our sponsors: Properly Posh Pets, Oratene® Brushless Oral Care Products and Embrace Pet Insurance.



How it works —

Stay tuned RIGHT HERE to VOTE for the lucky winners in each category starting June 27! 

Voting on finalists starts June 27 and runs through July 5

Please note: Unfortunately, we can’t accept photos of dogs in unsafe or illegal situations, such as dogs not safely strapped in a car, dogs off leash in National Parks or dogs in a boat without a personal flotation device. Rule of thumb — if it’s not safe or legal for a toddler to be doing it, it’s not safe and/or possibly legal for a dog.

Each category winner will receive prize packs each containing prizes from all three sponsors:

Visa/MasterCard gift card
Oratene Water Additive
Oratene Brushless Toothpaste Gel
Oratene Breath Freshner
Oratene Antiseptic Oral Gel

1 copy of Posh Celebrations, (party guidebook, 92 pages, paperback, original illustrations)
1 Posh Party Kit – Party Animal Cookie Cutters
1 Posh Party Kit – Salty Dog Cocktail Kit
1 Posh Party Kit – Make a Wish! Birthday Kit
1 Posh Party pet bandana
