The winner of the competition will win a Furbo pet camera, with judges looking for dogs which have “defied the odds”. Entries for the competition close on 12 December, with those wishing to enter urged to fill in the form on Laughing Dog’s website.
Barking Mad founder and MD, Lee Dancy, said: “Through our work as part of the UK’s largest dog sitting network, we encounter amazing dogs who brighten up the lives of those around them every day. Every dog is special in their own way but we wanted to recognise and reward a dog who deserves to be put upon a pedestal for their strength of character this year.
“Our head office panel will decide who should be crowned the nation’s top dog at the close of the year, with the lucky winner receiving the title of ‘the dog who has owned 2018’ as well as a Furbo interactive dog camera (RRP £249) and £300 of delicious food from Laughing Dog.”
