Preloved's Perfect Pooch 2013



Are you the owner of 'Preloved's Perfect Pooch 2013'? Show your doggy pal off to the world, get the most votes and WIN a stay in a cosy dog-friendly cottage, courtesy of Sykes Cottages.

It's that simple: the dog with the most votes will be crowned 'Preloved's Perfect Pooch' and bag the break – you'd be barking mad not to enter (sorry!)

So upload some fab photos of your dog looking their best to show to the world in our competition Pooch Gallery. They might be leaping for a ball, curled up with their favourite toy, fetching the newspaper or dripping wet and covered in mud on the carpet. Just be sure to show their best side! Then answer some questions to build a short pooch profile, so everyone can know exactly why your hound should be voted top dog. You also need to get all your family and friends voting, so get on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to tell them you've entered!
