Good Dog Photo Contest

Meet the 2019 Good Dog Winners

This year’s Good Dog Photo Contest was one for the record books. We received more than 17,000 photos (that’s more than double last year’s entries), and readers cast over one million votes for their favorites. Clearly, G&G readers love dogs as much as we do. With so many outstanding submissions, picking a winner was especially challenging. But one furry friend rose to the top.

OVERALL WINNER: EDITORS’ PICK

Congratulations to this year’s winner: Komet, a 10-year-old English springer spaniel from Atlanta. According to his owner, Phillip Walker, Komet’s favorite place to be is the great outdoors, whether he’s tagging along on a fishing trip or just checking out the scenery while riding shotgun. The winning photo, snapped by Rawson Livezey, was taken while Komet was hanging out with some pals at the Sawnee Dog Retreat in Douglasville, where he’s often first in line when treats are involved. “I think Komet had just eaten the treat and was licking his chops,” Walker says.
