2015 Everyday Dog Show Categories
11:30am Best Costume—Judges vote on dog with best costume; extra points for originality.
11:50am Best Trick—Dogs have 30 seconds to show off their best trick(s). Props encouraged.
12:10pm Best Bark—Contestants are given 30 seconds to show off their vocal abilities.
12:30pm HALF TIME SHOW!—Special Performance by Cherry Hoops! Get infused with Hoopy goodness.
1:00pm Best Owner/Dog Look-Alike—Not a costume contest. Judges look for dogs and guardians that have grown to look similar or have common natural features or characteristics. Contestants may describe their similarities such as pointy ears, sad eyes, long legs, shy, hyperactive, a love of life, etc.
1:20pm Best Body Part— Every dog has ears, a tail, a coat and paws. Are these ears better than your tail? Judges choose.
1:40pm Best Lap Dog—Judges are looking for dogs that are great on your lap and the velvet throne.
2:00pm Best Coat—Self-explanitory, no?.
2:20pm Most Openly Corrupt Best-In-Show**
**The Openly Corrupt Best-In-Show category is all in good fun with the goal of raising the most money possible for the school. The winners of each of the main categories (costume, bark, trick, etc.) and anyone who wants to buy their way in for $50 will be entered in the final contest of the day, the Openly Corrupt Best-In-Show contest. The audience will then vote for their favorite dog by putting donations into different buckets for the different dogs. At the end, the dog with the most donations will be crowned Best-In-Show. Simple, silly, and will hopefully raise a bunch of money for the kids.
