The Kennel Club Dog Hero Award, previously known as the Friends for Life competition, takes place at Crufts each year. It celebrates the unique relationship people have with their dogs, the important role man’s best friend plays throughout our lives and the support they give us in the face of adversity.
Our five categories are:
We want to celebrate and share the amazing stories of how dogs give back to us every day of our lives. There will be one winner per category, decided through a public vote and the overall winner will be announced in the main arena at Crufts 2021. The winner and the runners up will receive generous funding for their nominated canine charity to help make a difference for dogs.
If you have an unsung hero dog yourself or know someone who might fit this criteria, please nominate them below.
