Why Enter

The inaugural Dog Professionals Awards are designed to help your business thrive by allowing you to stand out from the crowd. Being nominated and winning an award gives your services publicity and credibility for being outstanding.

Furthermore, just entering demonstrates your belief in your team’s efforts, gives them a confidence boost and sends a positive message to the industry with which you collaborate.


The Dog Professionals Awards promise to put rigour, transparency and impartiality at the heart of the judging process. The judges will be carefully selected from across the dog care industry to ensure a fair and independent assessment of each entry, scrutinising question responses and supporting material to score each nomination individually according to its merit and the criteria specified.

For the product awards, judges will assess submissions alongside the physical product, identifying practicality, innovation and creativity in each entry.

The panel of judges will be announced in due course.
