Favorite farm dogs: 20 years of winners

Slideshow: Ever wondered about past winners of our Favorite Farm Dog Contest? Find them all here! Plus, how to enter the 2021 contest.

Take a look back with us — at 20 years of Prairie Farmer’s Favorite Farm Dog contest! We’ve circled up nearly all of the winners from the past 20 years, and we hope you enjoy taking a look back with us in the slideshow.

The 2021 Favorite Farm Dog contest is in full swing, and entries opened last month. Already your favorite dog photos are hitting our in-box, and we love them all. Be sure to share your dog’s story with us before entries close on March 1 at 8 a.m.

To enter, email us your photo and tell us, in 150 words or less, what makes your dog the perfect canine candidate. Please include your name, address and phone number, plus your dog’s name, age and breed. Don’t wait — entries are open now and will close March 1 at 8 a.m.

Winners will be chosen based on a combination of online voting and editorial voting, which will be based on the dog’s utility, companionship, work ethic and value as a family member.

Owners of the winning dog will receive a complete photo shoot of their dog on the farm, on the job, and with and without family members, plus a 16-by-20-inch Modern Metals wall art hanging featuring their favorite farm dog photo, complete with the winning credentials. In addition, the first-place farm dog will receive $100; second place will win $75; and third place will receive $50.

Enter here! Send in your photo and tell us about your dog. Include your name, address and phone number, plus your dog’s name, age and breed.
