Eukanuba Friends For Life 2015

Eukanuba Friends For Life is an inspiring celebration of man's best friend. The competition celebrates heart-warming stories of friendship in adversity, and how humans and dogs transform and enrich each other’s lives. 

The competition celebrates dogs that have truly earned the title of man’s best friend, through bravery, support or companionship. This might include assistance dogs, service dogs or everyday companions who have helped their owners in remarkable ways. This year we are also celebrating people who feel that they, or somebody they know, has truly transformed the life of a dog suffering terrible adversity.

The finalists will be invited to Crufts, where the winner will be announced in the main arena. The winner will be chosen by a public vote.

The nominations are now closed for this year and our panel of judges have chosen their finalists, find out more about the four finalists below and how you can vote for your favourite!

A panel of judges will select five finalists who will go forward to the final at Crufts on 8thMarch 2015, where the overall winner, selected by public vote, will be announced before the grand finale of the Crufts Best in Show award.

Last year the competition was won by Molly whose companionship transformed the life of her owner Lucy Watts, who suffered with a life-limiting rare genetic condition, by giving her confidence and helping to take the focus of other people away from her wheelchair and illness.

Nilhan Onal, Eukanuba Marketing Leader, said: "We are pleased to be working in partnership with the Kennel Club to recognise the special relationship between man and dog, on the world's most famous dog stage, Crufts.

"Eukanuba Friends for Life celebrates the unique and special relationship between dogs and people and the way that lives are transformed, enriched and even saved as a result of the relationship."
