Through your talent, we’ll spread the word that be they are heritage bred or rescued, purebred dogs are worth preserving, protecting, and celebrating for their contributions and importance to the cultures that created them for a reason. We all win with a robust turnout in this competition. Artists get exposure, and proceeds of entry fees, and the sale of art and posters are put back into the competition, and/or to maintain NPDD’s website. NPDD is honored by the participation of the many fine dog artists.
