Dogs with Jobs and Office Dogs: OZ Top Dog Awards 2023
Dogs in the workplace? Yes, please!
The Oz Top Dog competition is back! A feel-good competition to celebrate our furry pals and the wonderful impact they have on our lives and mental health.
The aim is to recognise all the good dogs out there (literally every single one of them, if you ask us) and show the impact they have on their owners and the people around them.
This year, PetRescue’s Co-Founding Director, Vix and Managing Director, Pats, had the opportunity to be judges for the 2023 competition. And what a great year for them to be involved, as this year’s campaign, Dogs with Jobs and Office Dogs, has been the biggest and most successful to date!
In addition to the judging awards, the People’s Choice voting surpassed 2022’s record of 7,000 votes in just 12 hours of the voting being open!

This year there were over 350 paw-some entries, each with a story that would pull at your heartstrings. As with every competition, it was hard to narrow down the finalists, but ultimately the winners were chosen.
