The Kennel Club Dog Hero Award, previously known as the Friends for Life competition, takes place at Crufts each year.

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 finalist per category and an overall winner, decided through a public vote, will be announced in the main arena at Crufts 2022. The winner and the runners up will receive generous donations from The Kennel Club Charitable Trust for their nominated canine charity, to help make a difference for dogs.
If you have an unsung hero dog yourself or know of one who has changed their owners’ life, please nominate them for The Kennel Club Dog Hero Award 2022 below.
