BOUNDING into its fourth year, Henley?s canine competition is back and promises to be as funny, heart-warming and entertaining as ever.

There are £1,700 worth of prizes to be won in this year?s contest, which is organised in association with Naughty Mutt Nice, Henley?s dog shop.

Don?t Call Me A Mutt
Hybrid dogs are hot in H.O.T. ? golden doodles, pugshires, schnoodles, there are so many wonderful new breeds, all with such unique personalities.

To enter this category and be in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes, please send us a good quality photo of your dog, plus 200 words explaining why your ?mutt? is the best hybrid in Henley.

Dog Tails
Your woofer is wonderful ? you know that ? and now you need to tell us why.

Maybe your dog has done something exceptionally brave, or they have experienced something heartbreaking but pulled through nonetheless.

Or maybe you have a hilarious anecdote about your pooch that you would love to share.

To be in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes, please send us a good quality photo, plus your dog?s tale in 200 words.

May The Paws Be With You
Last year saw Hoshi the shiba inu scoop first place as Fox in Socks. Could your creativity put your dog in the top spot this year?

Put your thinking caps on and dress your dog to become a famous character from your favourite book, film or TV show.
