Milgi Coats Fun Online Dog Show 2018

It’s January and that can only mean one thing – the return of our annual Online Dog Show to brighten up these winter days.

As in previous years, we want to see your favourite pictures showing off your hound wearing or lying on their favourite Milgi gear! We’ve got some fabulous classes, it’s free to enter and there are some great prizes including donations to the favourite rescue of the winners. So all you need to do if you want to enter is email your pics to us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (this email address only please) and we’ll put up the pictures on our FaceBook page and website gallery.

The competition opens on Wednesday 10th January and the closing date will be Wednesday 31st January. Judging will take place later that week and we’ll announce the results on Saturday 3rd February. We ask that you send no more than three pictures per household per class, and also that all pictures you send should feature your hound wearing or lying on/under a Milgi product. In your email, don’t forget to tell us which class you are entering, the name of your hound and their age. 

So, without further ado here are the classes:

  • Festive Frolics – pictures featuring Christmas coats, bandanas, blankets etc. 
  • Long Tailed and Lovely – any pictures featuring your hound looking gorgeous in their Milgi kit
  • Golden Oldies – your senior hounds (age 8+) rocking their Milgi looks
  • We Are Family – pictures of your multi-hound families
  • We also have a very special class limited to one entry per household – for Rainbow Bridge Hounds. There will be a special rosette for every entry in this class. 

For each of these classes, we’ll have rosettes for 1st to 6th place plus a generous selection of Special rosettes. The first prize winner of every class will win a Milgi coat of their choice. All the 1st prize winners will then be put forward for judging of Best In Show. The BIS will win a gorgeous rosette plus a donation of £60 to their choice of sighthound rescue and the RBIS will win a similar donation of £40 to their choice of sighthound rescue plus a beautiful rosette. 

Information about the show will be pinned to our FaceBook page, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
