We want your Dog Photos and Stories for our 2016 Calendar!
We are planning our 2016 Dog Calendar and we are looking for stunning dog photographs and interesting dog tales.
Photo: Dog Models and their owners from our 2015 Calendar - (L) Brodie and Vinnie, (R) Casey and JesseThis year was the first time we sent out a K9000 Dog calendar to our valued customers. To create the calendar we asked photographers and dog owners to send in photographs of their dogs with a sentence or two about the dog to give the photograph some context. We really loved the range of photographs we received and the stories that went with them. It was lovely to get a sense of how much the owners cherished their dogs and it was really great to connect with people who regularly use our dog wash. We gave each of our photographers a mounted print of their photograph as a thank you. “The prints were spectacular, we were just blown away, we didn't expect to get them and we treasure them,” said Barb Kirkby (Photographer/Dog Owner)
This year we want to again call on our K9000 dog washing community for photographs and stories for our calendar. If your photograph is chosen to be represented in our 2016 calendar then you will not only receive five copies of the calendar (to share with your friends) but you will also receive a beautiful printed photograph of your photo to hang on your wall. The 400mm x 600mm enlargement will be laminated and mounted on durable sign board.

For a dog owner/photographer, having a photograph published in a calendar is a very satisfying experience. Barb Kirkby had three photographs in our 2015 Calendar and has loved sharing the calendars with her friends and family. Two of her photographs had special significance for others because Barb had taken pictures of friend's dogs that had recently passed away.
“My partner and I were so wrapped to have my pictures of our dogs included in the calendar. My partners dog was PTS (put to sleep) the day I took his photos so they are extra special to her, she cried when she seen him in the calendar,” said Barb Kirkby.
Please email your high res photograph/s and dog stories to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject heading box write “2016 Calendar.” Please ensure you include your name and details.
