Online Fun Virtual Dog Show

Will you join in our Virtual Fun Dog Show to raise money for the animals at Raystede?

Are you currently stuck at home with your four legged friend? If so, why not give them a treat and enter them into our Virtual Fun Dog Show?

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, Raystede is currently shut to visitors and we are losing £1,000 every single day we are closed! We need your help more than ever to ensure we raise enough money to look after the 400 animals that are at our centre.

So, why not enter your pooch into our Virtual Fun Dog Show? All you need to do is:

1. Click on THIS LINK to enter them into one of the below categories. After clicking on this link make sure you scroll right down to the bottom of the page and pick the category that you'd like to enter, putting the number of entries you'd like into the box before clicking continue.

2. Send your photos or videos to Please make sure you put the category you're entering, into the 'Subject' box in the email. You can send one photo/video for each category and If you could send separate emails for each category you've entered into that would be great.

(Please note your photos and Videos may be shared with The Argus for them to publish.)

Our online Fun Dog Show will stay open until the 30th April. All the entries will then be judged and there will be a winner and two runners up in each category. All winners and runners up will receive a special Raystede rosette and a little goody bag.

Each entrant will also automatically be entered into the 'Best In Show' category. If your dog wins the 'Best in Show' they will receive a unique Raystede rosette, a goody bag, a signed copy of Noel Fitzpatrick's recent book as well as a very generous prize offered by photographer, Zoltan Attila Kecskes.

Zoltan came 2nd in the 2019 Kennel Club photographer of the year and is donating his 'Option 2 Portrait Package' (which is usually worth £150) to the winner of the Best in Show, which includes a free photo session gift card and 10 of your favourite digital images. You can view Zoltan's incredible work and wonderful photos by visiting his website.

It's £4 to enter your dog into one of the below categories:

Most Appealing Eyes

Biggest Smile

Shiniest Coat

Worst At Social Distancing

Best Party Trick

Waggiest Tail

You can either send us a photo or a video for each category, although it may be easier for us to judge 'Best Party Trick' and 'Waggiest Tail' if you send us a video.
