Cloud, a young Greengrass Lurcher from Galway, was chosen to be Petmania Puppy of the Year 2020. Cloud was named top-dog having been chosen from 1200 adorable puppies from all over the country.

To enter Petmania Puppy of the Year 2021, log on to and complete the entry form.

Once all entries have been verified, Petmania will open online and in-store voting, where people can vote for their favourite puppy.

During the first round of voting, Petmania will identify the Top 5 Puppies representing the Kerry Petmania Store and Grooming Studio.

This year one wildcard will be chosen by the Petmania Tralee team members in-store. These six puppies will receive a qualifier’s rosette and a gift from the competition partner, BETA, and will move forward into Round 2.

During round two, Petmania Tralee will again call on the public to vote, the puppy with the most votes will be named Puppy of the Year for their region and go forward to the grand final.

The chosen finalists from across Ireland will then be invited to submit some additional photos and videos online to the judging panel, who will choose the overall winner. The winner of the Petmania Puppy of the Year 2021 will be announced via Petmania’s social media channels at the end of October.

The Petmania Puppy of the Year will be pampered for a whole year with over €1,500 of prizes to be won.

The champion puppy will also become a model pup and will star in its own professional photoshoot and become the face of some of Petmania’s advertising campaigns in 21/22.

The winning dog will enjoy year-round pampering with a 12-month care plan at their local Petmania Grooming Studio, which will see the winning pup enjoy a complimentary treatment every month for a whole year.

Petmania’s nutrition partners for the Puppy of the Year 2021 will ensure that the top-dog dines in style for a whole year. BETA Puppy Food will present the overall winner with a 12 month supply of food.

Petmania has also teamed up with Ireland’s Blue Book Hotels to offer the winning puppy the chance to chill out in the comfort of the dog-friendly Cashel House in Connemara, along with his/her two favourite humans. This luxury staycation includes two nights’ accommodation with breakfast and dinner on one night.
