This fall the catwalk is going to the dogs.
The Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships is gearing up for its return to WestWorld October 25 through 26 and this year it's rolling out some new four-legged entertainment with its first-ever Canine Couture fashion show.
Presented by Applewood Pet Resort, Canine Couture will be a showcase of Scottsdale's most stylish pooches. Participation in the fashion show is open to all breeds and ages. Dogs will be judged on their appearance and the creativity of their outfits by a panel of canine couture experts including Million Dollar Listing's Chad Rogers, New York Times bestselling author Kelly E. Carter, and two-time winner of Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show's Best In Show Gabriel Rangel.
Trophies will be awarded to the top five favorites with an additional $1,000 awarded to first place, $500 awarded to second place, and $250 awarded to third place. To register your dog for first-ever Canine Couture fashion show on Saturday, October 25, at 2:45 p.m. inside WestWorld, purchase a ticket (at any level) to the polo championships by visiting www.thepoloparty.com. Once you've paid your admission, contact pet event coordinator Ivan Lugo at firstname.lastname@example.org or 602-791-0585.
