Holyrood Dog of the Year 2019

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.

Jim Monteith, interim Chief Executive of Dogs Trust, explains: "The Holyrood 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 MSPs 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!"
