Competitions at The Doggie Do 2016

THE DOG OF DUBLIN 2016 - Canine Costume Competition!

Last year we saw pugs in pearls, radiant rescues and themed human/dog pairs strut the ‘dog-walk’ in competition for the inaugural 'Dog of Dublin' title. The eventual winner was the wonderful Missi, a senior lady with arthritis. Her best friend, Vivienne, helped her out by creating an amazing Moulin Rouge themed costume for both of them, including a glamorous push cart for little Missi. Lucky also wowed us with his classic hot-dog look and the ‘dog-a-pillar’ Tippi made us laugh with his brilliant mulit-legged, home-made get-up.

Does your best fur-friend have personality, style and panache? Do you think they’ve got what it takes to impress our judges? If so, fill in our registration form today and getting planning that costume!

DOGGELGANGERS - a dog and human lookalike competition!

It has now been proven that  dog owners end up looking like their canine companions, (seriously, click through on that link!) and vice-versa. We're inviting such pairs to enter our dog & human lookalike competition ‘Doggelgangers’ (like Doppelgängers... geddit?)
Michelle Howie of will photograph entrants at the Doggelgangers stand, and results will be posted on our Facebook after the festival. The winning lookalikes will be rewarded with a framed print of their winning shot, courtesy of!

THE RAINBOW BRIDGE TREE - remembering our departed doggos

Most of us have had to deal with the passing of a beloved fur-friend in our lives shared with dogs. We’d like to remember all these brilliant bow-wows at The Doggie Do 2016. Everyone who wants to join in is invited to come to the Rainbow Bridge Tree on site, write your pets name on a rainbow ribbon (supplied) and tie it to the tree. 

Rainbow Bridge Memorials will be on hand with a great competition to win €600 worth of their beautiful memorial jewellery. Say hi to Jennifer at the Rainbow Bridge Tree and put your name on the list to be in with a chance to win!
