Our submission period has ended which means... it's time for you to vote for the winner of our Dog Days of Summer August Cover Contest presented by Dogwood Acres Pet Retreat! Here' how it works: we wanted to give as many dogs as possible the chance to win, so unlike last year where we narrowed the submissions down to a few finalists, we've opened up the voting to more photos.

While we wish every photo could qualify, some submissions did not meet our printing requirements. Unfortunately we had to disqualify any images that are too low of a resolution, are blurry or too dark, if a child was pictured without a lifejacket, and if there was not enough room in the image for our PropTalk header, footer, and cover lines. We have included all other photo submissions that abide by our cover photo standards in the running.

Now it's time to vote!

  • Voting runs now through July 12.
  • You may only vote once, so make sure to share the contest with family and friends to get more votes for your favorite cover.
  • By voting you will be subscribed to our monthly email newsletter and to Dogwood Acres Pet Retreat, our sponsor for this contest. You may opt out at any time. May the best dog win!

If your dog was not selected as a finalist, you can submit photos for our monthly Boat Dog feature to [email protected] anytime.
