Meet America’s Top Dog Model ® 2013 Contest Winner, Johnny B Goode.

Headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, America’s Top Dog Model ® Contest is a national search for top “dogs that make a difference. ™” Now in its ninth season, the competition, was created so that people everywhere can celebrate the incredible union that we share with our canine companions!

During the first America’s Top Dog Model ® Contest in 2005, we searched for “top dogs” with “fashion style.” Our fashionable winner and America’s first “cover dog” is Linda, a Deer Head” Chihuahua from Lighthouse Point, Florida.  She is the logo for America’s Top Dog Model ®.

In 2006, the theme for America’s Top Dog Model ® Contest was “Home is Where the Heart is.” The contest called for photos of stylish canine in a “home setting.” Our stylish winner is Mia, a miniature Dachshund rescue dog from Valencia, California.

The theme for America’s Top Dog Model ® 2007 Contest was “Travel with Style.” Our grand prize winner is Daphne Simone, an elegant, American Cocker Spaniel, who travels with style between her homes in New York City and West Palm Beach.

America’s Top Dog Model ® 2008 Contest theme was “Entertain with Style.” Top dog Maia’s winning photo portrays her celebrating Chinese New Year. This stunning Pug “entertains with style” in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  

“Go Gorgeously Green” was the theme for 2009. America’s Top Dog Model ® eco-friendly contest winner is Dudley, a handsome Old English Sheep Dog from West Palm Beach, Florida. Dudley is an environmentalist who helps recycle and enjoys eating organic food. He stars in an episode of a British television series featuring Americas Top Dog Model ® Casting Call in Woofstock, March 2011, as part of Paul Merton’s Adventures in Miami. It is available for viewing on You Tube:

Our 2010 contest theme was “Go Green with Style,” which continues America’s Top Dog Model ’s ® mission to promote Green Living. America’s Top Dog Model ® 2010 competition combined all contest themes over the past five years: fashion, home, travel, entertaining, and sustainability, all rolled into one eco-chic lifestyle.

According to the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association 2009-2010 national pet owner’s survey, there are 77.5 million owned dogs in the United States alone. Together, dogs and their owners can make a difference in helping to save the planet we all share! Find out about ways to reduce your pooch’s carbon paw prints by clicking the "green page."

After a five month search for top dogs who are “living green”,  Princess Giana was announced 2010 winner!  This stylish Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a licensed service dog. She “Goes Green with Style” in Jamaica Estates, New York.

Princess Giana is an environmentalist who enjoys eating organic food. Her owners avoid purchasing conventional pet food that is packaged in non-biodegradable materials and contain artificial additives. America’s Top Dog Model ® Princess Giana is also a “green wear” fashionista!  

We hope that America’s Top Dog Model ® 2009 and 2010 Contests will continue to inspire the world and encourage "greener living".

People and dogs have a long history of bonding. Dogs are known for their unconditional love, affection, loyalty, and lifelong companionship. Around the world, dogs are “making a difference” by enriching and maximizing the quality of life through positive interaction.

America’s Top Dog Model ® 2011 contest was a search for “top dogs that make a difference.” The contest theme was “Angel Paws.” One angelic “top dog” and eleven heavenly finalists were selected. Our angelic winner is Hellen from Homestead, Florida.

The theme chosen by America is Home Sweet Home! During this contest we searched for top” dogs that make a difference ™ in the home. Our 2012 Contest winner is Moo, a handsome Great Dane from Indianapolis, Indiana.

America’s Top Model ® 2013 Contest “Jet Set Paws” national winner is Johnny B. Goode, an adventurous, Standard Poodle from West Palm Beach, Florida.

According to his family, Johnny makes every trip memorable and enjoyable.  He is always ready to go, whether it's for a walk, a road trip, or on a boat.

Johnny is especially fond of boating. He enjoys the breeze, the mist of the water, and riding the waves.  He loves to sit in a chair and reign over the seas, looking at the scenery, and he gets excited when other boaters approach!  Johnny is like a cruise director, always greeting and getting the party started.  He loves people and every interaction is an adventure, especially on the seas, where he is captain of the ship.
