Does your dog have a big, dopey smile that lights up a room? Do they tilt their head in the most
adorable way when you say “treat”? Do they look like they belong in Hollywood because they’re
so darn handsome? To all dog parents, the answer to these questions is yes (obviously). And to
dog parents who love taking photos of their dogs, now’s your chance to show their angel faces
off to the world.

BARK is kicking off its inaugural search for the Next Top Dog Model in honor of the launch of
our new breed-specific food, BARK Food. We’re searching for 10 dogs to be the face of BARK
Food, and we want dog parents to share photos of and stories about their four-legged friends.
The 10 winners will be featured on our social media (revealed to our 6.5 million social media
followers!) and in marketing materials and will receive $500, a professional photoshoot, toys and
treats from our 10-year BARK-iversary collection. The first 1,000 entries will receive a $5 gift
card to BarkShop on the date we announce the winners.

BARK’s Next Top Dog Model Contest is looking for pups with the following traits:

  • Goofy, derpy, zesty good boys and girls who are (or are mixes of) the following breeds: Chihuahuas, Dachshunds, Frenchies, Pit bulls, Boxers, Aussies, Labs, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Doodles
  • A BIG FAN of d-i-n-n-e-r, snacks, your food, all food
  • Ability to charm the socks off any human with their personality and puppy dog eyes
  • Unique story that adds to their personality, delightful weirdness and overall quirk
  • They wag and wiggle to the beat of their own drum

If this sounds like your dog and their smize is ready for all to see, head to our submission portal
Submissions open October 18, 2022 at 12:01 AM EST and will be accepted until
November 17, 2022 at 11:59 PM EST. Read the full contest rules for more details.

BARK has served over 6.5 million dogs since the company launched in 2011, and we decided to take our extensive knowledge of dogs and what they love and bring it to the food industry. We recently 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. We started with food for Chihuahuas, Labs and Pit bulls, and we recently expanded to offer food for Dachshunds, Frenchies, Boxers, Aussies, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers and Doodles. We’ll continue to release breed-specific meal plans until we cater to every type of dog and at every age. Learn more at

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 we care a lot about each and every breed we serve. During this time, we’ve learned a lot about the breeds we’ve served, including ways to help with any conditions, personality quirks or eating styles they might have. 
  • Same Price Forever.
    • This is just how we do business. For the last 77 (dog) years, 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. Inflation sucks, and our dogs should be protected from rising prices.
  • 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.
