We are super proud to announce that we will be looking after this year’s Henley’s Top Dog Competition in conjunction with The Henley Standard. This competition woofed its way onto Henley’s canine scene back in 2010.
This barkingly brilliant event sees Henley’s dog owners going to paw-to-paw to win the coveted title of Henley’s Top Dog.
Every year this competition launches a new theme – and invites guest judges on to the panel for the all important judging process. In the past we have seen Olympic themed entries (judged by Olympic Rower Debbie Flood) as well as blooming wonderful entries in conjunction with Henley in Bloom. We’ve met rescue hounds, pampered pooches, characterful cairns, performing pups and much much more. We even had local artist Clive Hemsley donate five amazing portraits to our winning dogs in 2015.
2017 will see a partnership with the Sue Ryder Care Hospice and their fantastic dog -friendly Forget Me Not walk on Saturday 16th September 2017.
Henley’s Top Dog is given a huge amount of support by The Henley Standard and Editor Simon Bradshaw. It also has an amazing partnership with Erik D’Arcy Donnelly who works as a vet at The Henley Veterinary Practice, and steps up every year as a judge. Guest Judges have included – Town Mayor Jenny Wood, Olympic Rower Debbie Flood, Radio DJ Mike Read, Henley in Bloom Chairwoman Kellie Hinton, Artist Clive Hemsley and MBE Alex Gregory.
Hello Henley has been working on building Henley’s Top Dog a wordpress site and we will be publishing on Facebook & Twitter throughout the Summer as the entries roll in! We are very excited to be working alongside The Henley Standard to help promote this wonderful event – which is now in it’s eighth year!
