IS your dog a sports enthusiast? Do they put in a gold-medal winning effort when it comes to the 10 dog disciplines, such as postman-chasing, hole-digging, doggy paddle and, of course, climbing on the sofa while no one is looking?
If your answer is “yes”, then here is your chance to bag a bunch of great prizes and see your pup in the paper!
Henley’s Top Dog 2016 is taking inspiration from the sporting extravaganza that will be the Rio Olympics.
