Arizona’s Most Flamboyant Dog Fashion Show Being Showcased at Nation’s Largest Polo Party

The Canine Couture: A Dog Fashion Show Like No Other!

(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) – Unlike movies, the sequel will be better than the original. For its second year, The Canine Couture returns to The Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships, allowing Arizona’s most pampered paws to strut their fashionable stuff in front of thousands of attendees.

Presented by the finest luxury pet resorts in Arizona, Applewood Pet Resort and Bark Avenue. The Canine Couture will be held on Saturday, October 24th at 2:30 p.m and is a delight for fashion and dog lovers alike! Flamboyant is an understatement!

Accompanied by the enthusiastic energy at the Valley’s next greatest show on grass, the canines, with their human companions in tow, will parade across the WestWorld of Scottsdale Polo Field and show off polo’s latest fashions.

The posh pooches will be judged on overall appearance and fashionable presence. Contestants are encouraged to be creative, fashionable and fabulous. First Place wins $300 cash and a free three-night stay for your furry friend at your choice of the decadent Applewood Pet Resort or Bark Avenue Pet Resort. Second Place prize is $200 cash and a free two-night stay at either resort and Third Place wins $100 cash and a one-night stay. But Fourth and Fifth place will not lave empty handed – the pet resorts will also provide gift baskets for the top five placers.

Judging The Canine Couture is a highly distinguished panel. This year’s judges are top model Michelle Davis and her canine companion Teddy, decorated dog and horse show competitor Lori Lewis, and KUSI TV pet correspondent Sandie Lampe. Last year, Westminster’s “Best in Show” even made an appearance.

The Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL), the Valley’s oldest and largest non-kill shelter, joins the event and will feature two dogs in the fashion show. Stop by their booth on-site to learn more about the organization and spend time with a coral of adoptable cuddly canines. Following the show, attendees can meet the judges and The Canine Couture winner at the Applewood Pet Resort and AAWL booths on the Main Promenade. Exact times TBD. All dogs, regardless of size or age, are welcome to participate. To register you must purchase a ticket to the polo event — any level allows entry — at www.ThePoloParty.com.
