JUDGING has begun to find this year's dog of the year in the Love Your Dog Competition 2019.

Entries have been flooding in since its launch on Valentine's Day and you can see them all in the gallery above.

Hundreds of people in the North-East and North Yorkshire sent in pictures of their perfect pooches for the chance to win a year’s worth of raw dog food, supplied by Durham Animal Feeds, based in Ferryhill, County Durham.

The 12 dogs that make the final will also have a professional picture taken by award-winning photographer, Sarah Caldecott, and will star in the Durham Animal Feeds 2020 calendar.
