Dads + dogs Super Dads and Super Dogs Deserve a Super Day!

 To celebrate Fathers Day on September 3rd we are running a PAWSOME competition. We are looking for the most amazing Dad + Dog combo in Victoria! Your Dad could win one of 5 double passes to a day at the Australian Grand Prix 22nd-25th March 2018.

 If you know a special pooch who is truly Dad’s Best Friend let us know. Maybe Dad gets to take his dog to work everyday if he’s a police dog handler or farmer, maybe you know of a hero dog who has rescued Dad, or a Dad who has rescued his dog. Maybe they are just inseparable. Maybe they even look pretty similar!

Dads + dogs Whatever the story, we want to hear.

Our very own ambassador Jack Silvagni and his Dad Stephen will be judging the entries!

It’s simple to enter, email us at by Sunday 3rd September 2017 with:

  1. A photo of your Dad and his Dog (the cuter the better!)
  2. Your story (in 200 words or less)
  3. Your contact number
