TOP DOG OFFICIAL RULES AND COMPETITION DETAILS

#1 HOW DO I APPLY FOR MY DOG TO PARTICIPATE?

There are three easy steps to apply. Complete the online application. Upload a photo of your dog within the application. Pay the $30 application fee, which includes ONE ticket to the Hockey Game on March 9th for the Top Dog Competition. A portion of the ticket sales from the GFW ticket link will go towards The Canine F.E.T.C.H Unit at Prisma's Children's Hospital. 

 

#2 WHAT IS THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION?  

 

Entries must be received no later than 8 p.m. (EST) on March 2, 2022.  

 

#3 HOW IS MY DOG SCORED AND HOW DOES THE COMPETITION WORK?

Once applications have closed, all photos will be uploaded to our Facebook page. 10% of the overall score will come from the number of likes on your dog's photo. Your dog will walk for a panel of judges on March 9, 2022 at the Swamp Rabbits game. They are scored on behavior, walk, presentation and overall appearance.  The Top 12 dogs will head out onto the ice during intermission. From there we will name the Top 3 finalists and the crowd will decide who our 2022 Top Dog will be. The 12 finalists will also get to strut their stuff on the Greenville Fashion Week runway on Saturday, April 16, 2022.
