Search is on for Britain's Ultimate Underdog at All About Dogs Show

Actress and presenter Caroline Quentin will be attending the 'All About Dogs Show' in Brentwood, Essex, this May Bank Holiday Monday.

Caroline is undertaking a nationwide search for the UK’s most unique, one-of-a-kind, stand out in a crowd dogs to compete in Britain’s Ultimate Underdog category on May 1st. This will be filmed and broadcast on ITV1 later this year.

Caroline is holding her own competition ‘Britain’s Ultimate Underdog’ at the All About Dogs Show and is inviting owners of unique dogs to enter and supporters to cheer from the side-lines. She will be picking the winner of her competition on the day and two runners up with the help of two fellow judges. Frank Kane the prestigious Crufts Judge of ‘Best in Show’ will be there to help Caroline decide on a winner alongside Bev Nicholson whose dog ‘Mugly’ shot to fame in 2012 when he won the competition, World’s Ugliest Dog® Contest in California.

This programme is a fun loving, warm-hearted documentary about how the nation’s pet owners love their animals, no matter what they look like. Caroline is touring Britain to find the most unique looking dogs in the nation. Whether they’re a scruffy rescue dog or a dog that stands out in the crowd, the programme’s producers want to celebrate dogs that are all shapes and sizes. This show is not mean-spirited or meaning to mock — it will be a very celebratory programme.

The winner picked by Caroline and the judges needs to be ready and willing to jet out to California [expenses paid] with the film crew and Caroline to take part in ‘World’s Ugliest Dog® Contest’. The competition is 23rd June. The winner of World’s Ugliest Dog® Contest

The World’s Ugliest Dog® Contest has been running for the past 28 years and the majority of dogs have been rescues. This competition has done a lot to raise awareness for rescue dogs, and that no matter their physical appearance, these animals are loving companions.

Come down on the day to enter or alternatively send an email to with your name, contact details and a photo of your dog.

All About Dogs is being staged at Brentwood Centre over weekend of 30 April — 1 May with everything from stunning main arena demonstrations to expert advice on grooming, nutrition and pet behaviour. If you’re a lover of dogs there’s no better place to spend quality time with your loyal pal — and this year visitors will enjoy an incredible performance on the Sunday by Britain’s Got Talent finalists Lucy Heath and Trip Hazard!
