About Contest

Tell us about your pooch! Let us know what makes your pooch so special that he or she has this unmistakable Star Quality that rubs off everyone he and she meets.


A specific dog breed would be chosen on a monthly basis for interested fur parents to submit photographs of their furbies.

3 winning pooches each month would enjoy a makeover session with appropriate spa and/ or healing components specially tailored to the skin/ coat and health condition. Each winning pooch would also receive a Mystery Gift, which will be revealed on the Petopia Facebook Fan Page and this contest portal at any time during the submission and voting periods.

In preparation for the 2012/ 2013 Petopia Calendar, photography sessions would be arranged for the winning pooches throughout the year. Handpicked pooches will move on to be featured in Petopia’s dogumentary and filming details will be furnished after September when storyboarding has been firmed up.
