Dogs who look Like their Owners Competition

16-12-2019

In the January issue of DOGS NSW Magazine, we will be running a competition, which supports a special article written by Professor Stanley Cohen PhD., DSc., FRSC, entitled ‘Dogs who look like their Owners.’

Stanley Coren is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia and he is best known to the public for his popular books on dogs and on general psychological issues, however within the scientific world he is also a highly respected scientist. His article mentions, “It is always interesting to find cases where popular folklore is actually confirmed by science, but whether the facts support the validity of the idea or not, dog and owner look-alike contests seem to be popular and amusing events for both participants and audiences alike.”

If you think that you look like your dog, please send in a photo of the two of you together, (that is a photo of you and your dog) and let us be the judge. The best photo wins a 12 month FREE DOGS NSW membership and the three best photos receive some dog grooming products from Oakwood. A selection of photos will appear in an upcoming edition of DOGS NSW magazine and also Oakwood’s website. Entries close January 31st, 2020.

To take part in the “Look Like your Dog’ competition, please send your full name, membership number, your dog’s name, DOGS NSW membership number, address and contact number, along with a current photo of you and your dog to competitions@dogsnsw.org.au OR post to:
