Thank you for your interest in nominating your farm dog for the first Farm Bureau Farm Dog of the Year contest, brought to you by Nestle Purina PetCare Comany! We know that it will be tough to choose a winner because all of our pets – particularly working farm dogs – are worthy of honors and our gratitude! That said, we will try our best to choose the “best of the best.” Here’s how you can give your dog the best chance to win:

  1. Complete this form to the best of your ability. Use reasons and anecdotes that illustrate the attributes your dog possesses.

  2. Include photos where requested and phone video if available.

  3. Give us your permission to publicize your dog’s picture and story on the AFBF and Nestle Purina PetCare Company websites. Also, a parent/guardian must give permission if the entry’s author is under 18 years old.

  4. Meet the nomination deadline October 12, 2018

Desired attributes on the farm, in the home and during recreation:

  • Helpfulness to the farmer and his/her family
