America's Top Dog Model Contest Begins

The annualAmerica’s Top Dog Model competition is once again on the hunt for the country’s most eco-friendly (and stylish) canines.

The theme for America’s Top Dog Model 2010 Contest, which kicked off Dec. 1, is “Go Green with Style.” Contest founder Jo Jo Harder said it combines each of the past five contest themes— fashion, home, travel, entertaining and sustainability—into one.

To enter, dog owners must submit a professional photograph that best illustrates what their pooches are doing to reduce their carbon “pawprints” and live an eco-chic lifestyle. The contest ends May 15.

“I think it’s a great platform to help educate people on sustainability and the different ways you can go green with your pet,” Harder said.

In addition to submitting a photo, posh pooches are invited to attend live casting calls. A casting call is scheduled for April at the Cincinnati Reds and Iams’ Bark in the Park event in Cincinnati. Other casting calls are being planned, Harder said.

The America’s Top Dog Model 2010 Contest winner will be featured on the cover of Pet Style News magazine and the cover of America’s Top Dog Model’s 2012 calendar. Also up for grabs is a three-night stay at Cincinnati’s Westin Hotel during the Cincinnati Reds and Iams’ Bark in the Park event in September 2010, a bon Christiani custom collar, and a new America’s Top Dog Model Signature T-shirt, among other prizes.

Eleven other eco-friendly finalists will win a spot in America’s Top Dog Model 2012 calendar and an Eco Cozy coat from Gold Paw Series.
