A BIG New Prize For Our Adventure Dog Contest

Is your dog a winner? Here’s a chance to win great prizes for you and your pooch. Just send in a photo, a video or a story about your Adventure Dog by September 1o. Winners will be featured in the October issue of Vermont Sports and the grand prize is  a two-night stay (with breakfast and, get this a puppy massage!) at gorgeous Topnotch Resort at Stowe and  get great prizes from Pet Food Warehouse 


Win a two-night stay with breakfast and a puppy massage at Topnotch Resort and Spa in Stowe, VT.

Our dogs are not only our best friends, they are our ski buddies, our backpacking companions, our running mates. Vermont Sports wants to see and hear about your puppy.

Here’s how the contest works: Submit a photo, video or story of  your dog. We’ll decide what category it’s best suited for. We’ll post the 15 top finalists on Facebook and conduct a popular vote for the Readers’ Choice.

The five finalists will ultimately be chosen by Vermont Sports editors and notified by September 15. Finalists receive free tickets to Wag It Forward: A Festival for Pets held at the Champlain Valley Expo.

Five winners will be chosen from five categories such as:  Extreme Scenes, Best Face Shot, Pups in Action, Great Stories and Video Action.

Overall winner will receive the grand prize from Topnotch Resort and Spa, including a two-night stay, breakfast for two, and a dog massage, pending availability.
