Top Dog Photo Contest

Who’s a Good Dog?

We want to know if your dog has what it takes to be named the Goodlettsville Parks and Recreations’ Top Dog for 2023! To enter, please send a direct message to our Facebook page with a photo of your dog and a little description about what makes them a Top Dog. We’ll be selecting the Top Three entries to take to our Facebook page where fans will vote for their favorites. The winner will be announced at the GoodDOG Festival and Doggy Easter Egg Hunt on Wednesday, April 5th, at Fenway’s Dog Park, located inside Moss-Wright Park.
