Voting now open for Australia’s OZ Top Dog of 2022 – Help QLD get a win!

Voting is now open for Australia’s OZ Top Dog 2022 competition at Over 500 pooches across the
country were nominated and have now been narrowed down to the top 20, for the public to decide the People’s Choice
winner. Founded by leading recruitment agency people2people and sponsored by PETstock Australia and Drontal Australia,
the winners’ announcement will take place at 12:30pm on Thursday, 6th October 2022 during the OZTOPDOG Awards
Ceremony. Voting is open here now:
People2people QLD Managing Director Ben Wheeler says, “Back for our second year in Australia, the entries this year were even tougher to narrow down to our top 20. Our OZ Top Dog competition came from the need to address wellbeing in the workplace. Our recent Twitter polls showed found three in five respondents (63.2%) have experienced dog-owner-
separation-anxiety since returning to the office. As a result, 1 in 2 Australian workers who took part in the poll have opted to embrace a more flexible WFH model. Of those back in the office, over 30% have their four-legged friend with them during work hours on a regular basis or for odd visits.”

Five local Queensland pups have made it into the 2022 top 20:
1. Darcy (Brisbane):
Darcy has brought so much brightness and joy to my family and he finally gets me out of the office and home on time rather than constantly staying back. I look forward to getting home and being greeted by his excited face and wagging tail and getting out for a long walk to clear the mind.
2. Jess (Brisbane):
In every way possible! Jess has taught us how to live a better life and don’t sweat the small things. We’re finding all the possible fun to be had every day.
3. Marven (Gold Coast):
Marven is my best friend and goodest art studio assistant. He is the best distraction for work breaks and is just so darn cute!!!He has given me so much love and a new lease on life, I will be forever grateful to him.
4. Pepper (Sunshine Coast):
It’s a lonely world working from home. Pepper checks on me daily and lays on her mat keeping me company while I work
from home. She keeps me smiling and is a great office friend to talk too.
5. Willow (Noosa):
Willow has made such a huge impact on my life since having her. Being a pet photographer, she’s been my number one fan.
She is the perfect model, she provides comfort and support when working from home and provides that same comfort and
support when she comes on photoshoots outdoors with me.
Sitting alongside the Top Dog People’s Choice’s will be the winners of Top Dog with a Job and the popular Top Office Dog.

These last two categories have been judged by the OZ Top Dog judging panel comprising of people2people, headline
