WHAT IS HAUTE DOGS?


THE HAUTE DOG organization (pro-nounced "HOT") is a diverse and growing network of dog owners, lovers, educators, rescuers and supporters. Our common bond has resulted in a unique and lively community of folks who share some qualities of our favorite dogs: devotion, spirit and tenacity.


EDUCATE & INFLUENCE
Through educational outreach and events, we hope to help inspire a better understanding and appreciation of dogs, dispel damaging myths, encourage responsible ownership practices, and offer practical adoption and rescue opportunities.

Warm regards,

Justin Rudd!

bulldog beauty contest long beachLast year, more than 200 English bulldogs and approx. 100 French bulldogs from at least four states and Canada left the crowd drooling for more.  Again this year, each quadruped will strut down a 100-ft. red carpet outdoor runway flanked by hundreds of seats, rentable for $5, for gawkers that will snake around the grassy park.  This is a competition where gender is no limitation and good looks are no advantage. The English bulldog competition lasts about an hour.

Costumes are optional, and not recommended.
Organizers realize that most dogs are so adorable that they shouldn't be covered up! We don't recommend outfits, since these dogs can overheat easily.


THEY ARE COMING FROM AFAR!
Again this year, some dogs will travel a far distance to compete in Long Beach. So far, dogs are coming from as far as Glendale, Arizona (371 miles); Sandy Valley, Nevada (270 miles); and from Dublin, Calif. (375 miles), Montana, Utah, and Oklahoma.

blue ribbonPRIZES AND CATEGORIES
In addition to a year of notoriety and fame, a bottle of nice champagne, and a blue ribbon, the "most beautfiul" dogs in each of the pageants (English Bulldogs, French Bulldogs, Pugs, Chihuahuas, Pit Bulls, Senior Dogs, etc.) will also receive prizes from various sponsors, including Pussy & Pooch on 2nd St. and Fido Friendly Magazine.

THE TOP-20 English Bulldogs will be asked to join the judges on the red carpet in the center of the ring for the final judging. All dogs are evaluated by the judges as they pass by the judges. Judges are also looking at bulldog booty, smiles and legs.


SPONSORS The event is produced by Justin Rudd/Haute Dogs and benefits Rudd's nonprofit 501c3 Community Action Team (CAT), which includes Haute Dogs and Operation Santa Paws, as well as beach cleanups, spelling bees, art contests, photography events and more.
