Meet our #KurgoValentine19 winners!

Whether searching for the perfect fetch partner, someone to share your peanut butter treats with, or a gal pal who's really into sniffing, dog dating can be complicated too! We looked high and low for the best Valentine-worthy dog photos on Instagram that would have fellow dog admirers swiping right. Congratulations to all of our winners, and many thanks to the 300+ fabulous accounts who entered the contest.

Here are the winners and their profiles!

Grand Prize Winner: $200 Kurgo Gift Card


Real men wear pink, ignore their humans, and roll in dead things. Swipe right and maybe we can ‘sniff and chill’ 

2nd Place: $100 Kurgo Gift Card


Bossy b**tch looking for a life partner willing to do everything on my terms, who isn’t sensitive to growling and doesn’t get offended when snapped at. Always DTF (down to fetch), I like big sticks, you don’t have to worry about puppies with me, but absolutely NO leash play. All you need to bring is peanut butter, and I am yours.

3rd Place: $50 Kurgo Gift Card


SNM (single, neutered, mutt) age 3, Pisces, avid outdoors man, meat eater, speaks out of turn, bad at selfies, looking for heavy petting, could you be the one?

4th Place: Muck Leash & Muck Collar of choice


Hi, I'm Mack. I wish I was a little bit taller. I wish I was a baller. I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her.

5th Place: (Tie!) Gourd Water Bottle and Collaps-A-Bowl



Jäger, almost 1. Tall, bark, and handsome. Likes long walks to the dog park and would do unspeakable things for some peanut butter. Always up for an adventure and always down to cuddle! 


Adventurous, independent queen doesn’t need a man, but loves a good chase, so welcoming suitors with some speed who think they have what it takes. Enjoys neighborhood watch, birds, loooong runs through the field, and eating deer poop (don’t knock it till you try it). 

Again, thank you to all who entered this fun contest! How will you and your dog be celebrating Valentine's Day?
