​My Dog's Got Talent

This year we're holding the inaugural Western Bay My Dog's Got Talent competition at our Doggy Day Out.

How does it work?

This is a talent show for all dogs, there is no talent too big or small. Any human under the age of 16 performing with their dog needs to be accompanied by an adult.

Each entry will have a maximum of five minutes to perform their talent - and an additional five minutes to set up and pack down if needed.

You must pre-register before 21 March - no registrations on the day. Applications are made by emailing Carolyn Berben on or phoning 07 579 6644.

Contestants will be given a number upon registering.  

On the day

Entries will be judged by a panel of three judges and awarded points based on originality, entertainment value, skill and control.

Prizes are: 1st place $100 gift voucher; 2nd place $50 gift voucher; 3rd place $20 gift voucher.
