We wrapped our inaugural search for America’s Next Top Dog Models in honor of the launch of our new breed-specific food, BARK Food, and the results are in! We combed through thousands of submissions of pups of all shapes, sizes, and levels of derpy, and we’re thrilled to announce the 10 dogs who will become the face of BARK Food:
- RIPP, AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD from Phoenix, AZ
Ripp shows his humans every day what perseverance is and how he is differently abled, but not disabled.
2. LUNA, BOXER from Portsmouth, NH
From her naturally grumpy face to her howling when she isn’t getting enough attention, she is, according to her parents, a little menace… filled with love!
3. TOBY, CHIHUAHUA from Minneapolis, MN
Toby’s passions are sleeping, snacking, and sitting. Funny, those are ours, too.
4. TOBY, DACHSHUND from McAlester, OK
Another Toby! Toby’s parents say he gives his family unconditional love, snuggles, and emotional support.
5. MOOSE, GOLDENDOODLE from New York, NY
Moose loves to play, patrol the neighborhood from his window, and watch other dogs get trained on TV.
6. POOPY, FRENCHIE from Roanoke, VA
When Poopy’s not eating or begging for food, he’s searching for berries and acorns in his backyard.
7. GUINNESS, GERMAN SHEPHERD from Norwich, VT
Guinness is ruff, tuff, and ever so slightly chonky.
8. CHARLIE, GOLDEN RETRIEVER from Holland, MI
Charlie is obsessed with sticks. Can you tell?
9. FENWAY, LABRADOR RETRIEVER MIX from Denver, CO
Fenway beat Blastomycosis, and his permanent wink makes him a hit with the ladies.
10. SUNSHINE, PIT BULL from Purcellville, VA
According to her humans, Sunshine is the most polite beggar you’ve ever seen and is incredibly expressive.
We contacted all of our winners via email—if you have not heard from us, please reach out to [email protected].
Our 10 winners will be featured on BARK Food’s social media (they’ll be revealed to our more than seven million social media followers!) and in marketing materials, and will receive $500, a professional photoshoot, and toys & treats from our 10-year BARK-iversary collection. Congratulations to the winners!
Since we launched in 2011, we’ve served over 6.5 million dogs, and we decided to take our extensive knowledge of dogs and what they love and bring it to the food industry. This past fall, we announced a new line of food including premium kibble, supplements, broths, toppers, and treats built by crazy dog-obsessed experts and tailored to your pup’s breed or breed mix. We now offer food for Chihuahuas, Labs, Pit bulls, Dachshunds, Frenchies, Boxers, Aussies, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, and Doodles, from puppy to adult. We’ll continue to release breed-specific meal plans until we cater to every type of dog and at every age. Learn more at food.bark.co.
With BARK Food, you’ll get:
- Breed-specific food from the dog-obsessed people who know how to keep your pup happy and healthy.
We’ve served millions of dogs and care a lot about each breed and what makes them unique. We’ve learned a lot during the past decade, including ways to support dogs’ health, cater to personality quirks and eating styles, and most importantly: how to ensure every meal is they best they’ve ever had.
- Same Price Forever.
This is just how we do business. Since we launched, we’ve offered our dog customers the same price for their entire lives. This means if you sign up for the savings and the convenience of regular deliveries, we’ll guarantee you’ll pay the same price forever. In other words, BARK Food is inflation-proof.
- 100% Happy Guarantee.
If your dog isn’t happy with their food, we will work with you to get it right. Wherever, whenever, whatever you need on your food journey, we are here to help. We believe this is how dog people serve dogs and their people.
