Train Your Dog Entries

We are so excited that we have received 21 entries for our Train Your Dog Photo Contest which is an Official Mango Minster Sanctioned Event. Thanks to Mango and his momma for publicizing our contest. We are thrilled with the quality of the entries showing off smart and talented dogs and the relationship they have with their people.




Check out all the photos and their blogs. There are so many great entries that we've decided that we will offer a reader's choice award as well as placements for the top four training photos. You can vote for the reader's choice in the poll on the sidebar.

It's true that the white on light green in the voting window makes it a bit of a challenge... But we managed to figure it out and we voted. Lots of great entries!

Fenway said...

What wonderful photos of TEAMWORK!!! That's what training is all about and why I love it so much.

Terrific contest, Niamh!

Niamh said...

We have fixed the color of the background in the poll so it will be easier for you to see all the names and vote! While Barbara is a good trainer she is not so good with all this blog stuff. She really appreciates all the work that Mango's momma is doing since Mango Minster has 10 X the number of entries that we have!

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Dog Foster Mom said...

Great entries! This was a fun contest - maybe next year we will be ready to enter. I had to vote for Honey because I know how difficult it is to train my Great Dane - and I don't think most other Danes are much smarter than he is. Bigger head does not equal smarter dog.

Bobby said...

How can I chose I have so many furends in this competition, now I have a head ache.

Deefor said...

Those are really talented smart doggies. If I could train my mom to take more pictures, I would have sent one. She's untrainable.

SGR said...

Woof! WOW! GREAT entries ... Lots Golden Woofs, Sugar

Fenway said...

How appropriate!!! I am going to TWO training classes today.

I think I am most impressed with Mango. That is a large hunk o' dog to train!

Your pal,
Fenway
