We are on the hunt for the top UK Pup Stars

Kate W 17 February 2022

Does your dog bark along to Britney, howl to Hughie or whine along to Whitney? Now is the time to showcase your pup’s amazing (or hilarious) talent!

We are running a competition to find a selection of UK Pup Stars. Enter your dog into our Pup Stars competition on our social channels (including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) and you could be in the running to win a dog-friendly holiday alongside a host of other goodies.

Is your dog a Pup Star in the making?

We are searching for both the best and the funniest musical dogs out there! 

We know there must be many talented pups – from cavapoos to bullmastiffs – that happily howl along to the radio with their pup parents or like to have a go at playing piano, but haven’t yet had the chance to demonstrate their amazing (or amazingly bad!) talent to a wider audience. We want to give them that chance.

What counts as musical talent? 

You’re not limited in what your superstar can do – if your dog barks, hums, grunts, sniffles or gurgles a tune then you may be on to a winner. They might even play a musical instrument or tap dance to a beat. We aren’t picky just as long as your four-pawed pup has star power, we want to see what they can do!

Have you got a whole choir at home? There’s no limit on the number of dogs that can enter either, so if your dog pack can hold a tune and have dreams of becoming a rock band or pup group, we’d love to see your musical mutts in action.

As we all know after watching Simon Cowell searching for top talent on the telly, competition is fierce in the world of music. We want to open it up to every canine in the UK to demonstrate that they have what it takes to make it as a Pup Star.

Need some inspiration? Oscar rose to fame over in the US after he dared to dream and took part in a well-known competition show. Listen to him singing along with his owner

Listen to the musical stylings of Trench and Maple, or simply hit play on this incredible list of lesser-known singers we discovered while browsing YouTube one day. Enjoy! 

Think your dog has the right stuff? Take a video of your dog performing and show us what they’ve got!

How to enter:

  • Create a showreel – simply film your musical dog/dogs performing
  • Upload your video to social media, tag @caninecottages and use #PupStarsUK
  • We will review all the contestants and contact you if your dog bow ‘wows’ us!

What will my dog win?

  • A £500 voucher to stay in one of our dog-friendly cottages
  • Your dog will get the sought-after accolade of being an official Canine Cottages Pup Star 2022
  • A trophy – think Grammy, AMA or Billboard Award for dogs!


We can’t wait to see your musical mutts showing off their talents. Good luck!
