It's a Photo Contest!

We have been busy here at Puppies Up North and are excited about all the beautiful puppies going to beautiful families!  We have had so much fun playing with them, training them and using teachable moments whenever we catch them doing good thing (and sometimes naughty things).

We have so many families that want to see our puppies when they “grow up." They  always want to know, “what do they look like, do you have any dogs that go to work, are they smart, are they fun?”


So I thought this amazing community of PuppiesUpNorth families could show off their puppies: in their cute professional poses, in the work place, in the park, sleeping, any picture that would show the character of our puppies for future clients.

So what's in it for you? How about some awesome prizes? Check out the details first, then see what you could win.
