Only one bulldog entry per person is permitted. You may enter more than one Bulldog per household, but each Bulldog must be handled by a different person of age 18 or older. If you are entering multiple Bulldogs, please fill out the registration form for each dog.

All entries must be living English Bulldogs. Other breeds of Bulldogs including French, Olde English or American are not eligible to compete.

All entries must have current rabies, distemper, parvovirus, and Bordatella (kennel cough) vaccinations. 

The winner of the 2021 Beautiful Bulldog Contest must attend the Drake Relays on either Friday or Saturday, April 23 or 24, to greet their royal subjects. 

Former contestants are invited to compete again. However, former Most Beautiful Bulldog winners cannot participate in future contests.
