Royal Canin and TV personality and dog lover Wayne Brady are inviting puppy owners to submit their best puppy videos.
The Royal Canin Puppy Pre-Show Video Contest includes a chance to win $5,000 and a year’s supply of Royal Canin premium puppy food. Owners can enter the Puppy Pre-Show contest by visiting royalcanin.com/puppies through Dec. 25.
The finalists will be featured in a digital show running the week of Jan. 11 leading up to the AKC National Championship, presented by Royal Canin on Jan. 17 on ABC from 2-5 p.m. ET. The winner and finalists will be highlighted during the show.
Puppy entries will be judged in a variety of categories including puppy playtime, heart-warming moments, best buds and best freestyle (where puppies can basically do anything cute.)
The Royal Canin Puppy Pre-Show will air across Royal Canin social channels on Jan. 12, where Brady will be joined by puppy experts including dog trainer Brady Foster and veterinarian and TV personality Dr. Diarra Blue to select the finalists.
Veteran dog show sideline reporter Mary Carillo will also make an appearance to crown the title of Puppy Best In Show.
