Hair by JFK has won awards for being one of the UK’s most dog-friendly salon groups, so when they decided to raise money for a local charity close to their heart, The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, they decided to call upon their four-legged friends for help.

Following the huge success of their 2013 dog-themed charity calendar featuring their clients’ dogs, they decided organise another dog photo shoot and called for dog lovers to enter their ‘Edinburgh’s Next Top Dog Model’ competition – the winners of which will star in their 2014 charity dog calendar.

Owners were asked to submit a photo of their dog and the winners were chosen by a panel of leaders from the dog world, including Honorary Vice President of the SPCA Alyn Smith MEP, Rosemary Eggleston of the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, and Joanna Drysdale of Edinburgh Dog Training.

Karen also took this opportunity to present The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home with a cheque for £500 raised through the sale of their 2013 calendar.

‘We were overwhelmed by the amount of entries that came through and it proved to be a tough decision for the judges. The winning dogs were all very different but they each had bags of personality which really shone through’ said Hair by JFK Co-Owner, Karen Brown.

The winners were:

1st Denise Henedy’s Pucci
2nd Kayleigh Guild’s Milo
Joint 3rd Elaine Clark’s Ruby Joint 3rd Eunice Watson’s Yogi
