They are now welcoming applications from 'Canine Critics', with ten spots up for grabs.

The 10 successful doggy applicants will get to explore dog holidays around the UK.

This year, Canine Cottages is hoping that Canine Critics will be the most successful yet and are looking to recruit 10 special dogs from around the UK to join their pack, receive a free UK holiday as well as some awesome treats. The competition has exploded in popularity from 7,000 hopeful applicants in its debut year to more than 50,000 in 2019, with dogs all over the UK dreaming of being crowned a Critic.

The rewards for becoming one of the newly recruited Canine Critics include each lucky pup receiving a £1,000 voucher for a cottage holiday and a doggy bag full of treats. In addition, the successful dogs will be profiled on the Canine Cottages website and appear regularly across the company’s social media channels.

Potential Canine Critics will need a little help from their faithful humans when applying. However, the application process is extremely simple and involves little more than uploading a favourite snap (ideally one that shows the pup’s personality) and completing the short online form.

Canine Cottages Digital PR Manager, Shannon Keary says: “Our 2019 campaign was phenomenally successful and we were overwhelmed with the calibre and quantity of entries. The chosen 2019 Critics have been amazing and we’ve loved having them as ambassadors for our brand. Now we cannot wait to recruit ten new top dogs for 2020. We’re on the hunt for a diverse selection of ‘real’ dogs who love to explore the UK and have their photo taken, as well as a willing human to sit, stay and lie down with!”

Last year's winners from the East of England, Dilbert, had a pawsome year and commented: "Our favourite part was our PAWESOME holiday! We got to go somewhere that we would never have thought of going ourselves, and got to sniff out some new dog friendly places."

He also offered up some advice to aspiring critics: "Go for it! You’ve got to be in it to win it! Make sure you can show off some really good, clear photos of your pup and if they have social media, make sure you include it in your application!"
