Think you and your Best Friend could be twins?

It’s time to find out! We’re on the hunt for Australia’s Best Doggleganger – that perfect duo where human and canine look uncannily alike!

Our search to find Australia’s Best Dogglegangers is a somewhat humorous and heartwarming new competition designed to celebrate the uncanny resemblances we share with our hairier companions. The unique contest invites dog owners from across the country to not only share photo’s revealing their resembling, but to shine a light on the bond they share and what makes their relationship so special. Participants submit photos that capture the striking similarities in appearance, expressions, personality and even fashion sense between them and their dogs.

Whether it’s the same hair colour, hairstyle, eyes, lips, nose, matching outfits, or just a similar kind of smile – the competition is all about finding those perfect pairs where human and pooch look somehow connected. Submissions will be judged on creativity, resemblance, laughability, and the overall charm of the duo, with special attention given to those who go the extra mile to accentuate their similarities.

The top ten entrants in Victoria will be invited to make a live appearance on the Optimum™️ DOGWALK at the Melbourne Dog Lovers Festivals, where our live audience will get to vote for Australia’s Best Doggleganger. The winners will also win a special Dog Pack that includes an exclusive portraiture photoshoot (valued at $2,500) to capture the beautiful likeness between pooch and human and this will be featured across our social media and websites.
