Is Your Dog NZ’s Next Tux Dog?

Is Your Dog NZ’s Next Tux Dog?
The search is well underway for NZ’s Next Tux Dog – but time is running out to put your dog forward and make him or her part of Kiwi TV history.

However, the closing date for the search is drawing near. Postal entries must be received by last mail on Monday, April 18th – so print off your form at and send it in with a photo by Friday April 15 to ensure it arrives in time!

“The TUX range has a product for every type of dog, so the search criteria is quite open,” says Animals on Q’s Mark Vette, a top animal trainer for film and television who will be part of the judging panel and training the chosen dog on the day of the shoot. “The new dog doesn’t have to be a big dog, or a rural dog – it could be large or small, an urban or a working dog. Of course, we’re looking for a dog that can follow a few commands, but nothing too tricky will be required – it just needs to have that something special.”

Once all entries are received, the judging panel will visit the shortlisted dogs to meet their owners and film auditions of the dogs in action. The public will then be able to see the Top Ten dogs on the TUX website, and select their favourite TUX Dog – the “TUX People’s Choice” by voting online between 9-20 May. If any other dogs are needed for the television commercial, they will be selected by the judges.

To be a part of the search for the NZ’s Next TUX Dog, head to now, and make your dog a star!
