The Bow-WOW Contest

Is your bulldog bilingual? Can your collie carry on a conversation? Did your Australian shepherd author a short story? We want to see your clever canines perform their very best tricks. So, show off your pooch’s prowess in our Bow-WOW Contest!

Here are the doggone details:

  • All video entries must be submitted as a response to this video on our YouTube channel.
  • Video titles must contain the words “ModCloth’s Bow-WOW Contest,” followed by a colon and your dog’s name.
  • Videos must be 2 minutes or less.
  • Only 1 video submission per person, please!
  • You must have proof of permission for any music used in your video.
  • All videos must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. ET on May 1, 2011.
  • Videos will be judged on uniqueness, creativity, personality, flair, and effort.
  • The winner will be announced on the Blog on May 4, and will receive a $200 ModCloth gift certificate!

Check out our example video response of a few ModDogs showing off their mad skills. Once you and Spot are sufficiently inspired, start filming a puppy performance that’ll make us say, “Bow-WOW!”

    i know dogs are the modcloth thing, but it would be great if cat lovers/owners got to be included in this contest too!

    My dogs are really good at killing groundhogs and rolling in dead things, sigh. Also, nice skants!

    can my dog do multiple tricks, or does it have to be just one trick?

    I agree. It would be great to have our other furry friends (cats) included too!

    Wondering exactly what an “Australian shepherd” is. Do you mean a blue heeler?

    Oh. This is so much fun! I can’t wait to upload a video of my biggin’s. 🙂

    @Kate: <— that's from the American Kennel Club, a little back history on the Australian Shepherd.

    @eyesofcuriosity: I’m Australian and have never heard a breed referred to as an ‘Australian shepherd’, hence the confusion. Even teh AKC acknowledges it isn’t a registered breed in Australia!

    I wish you’d opened this to cats as well… My cat can do more tricks than most dogs I know!

    So I tried to post a video and I thought it worked but it hasn’t shown up and its been two days. I tried again a couple minutes ago but it doesn’t seem to be working. I was wondering if I could post a link to the video on youtube?

      The youtuber has to accept your video response before it can show up; maybe they’re just late?
