The Alabama Black Belt Adventures Associations understands the unique bond that exists between a dog and their owner is universal from hunting dogs to house dogs. With this in mind, ALBBAA is searching for photo entries into the second annual Best Black Belt Dog Photo Contest.

This year, the contest is open to all dogs who are out on an adventure – this could be hunting/retrieving out in the field or on the water, riding along in the boat or canoe, hiking, or tagging along for a good old-fashioned road trip to a stop along the Flavors of the Black Belt trails like our Flavors mascot Duke!

To enter the Best Black Belt Dog Contest, visit this website.

The contest will run through July 31stand the winner is determined by the photo that receives the most votes online. The winning prize is a personalized 100% cotton oil finished Shelter Dog Coat by Filson and a copy of Black Belt Bounty, an award winning deluxe hard-cover coffee table book that celebrates the traditions of hunting and fishing in Alabama’s famed Black Belt region—a retail value of $175.

“With the love and loyalty sportsmen share with their four-legged friends, we had an extremely successful inaugural contest last year with nearly 200 entries,” said ALBBAA Director Pam Swanner. “The Black Belt region is well known as home of the Field Trial Capitol of the World and the Bass Capitol of the World, but it also offers plenty of other dog-friendly activities as well. We wanted to highlight sporting dogs as well as non-sporting dogs that are out in nature or experiencing an adventure with their owners in our beautiful region. We encourage folks to get out there and explore the outdoors!”

The Black Belt includes the following counties: Barbour, Bullock, Butler, Choctaw, Clarke, Conecuh, Crenshaw, Dallas, Greene, Hale, Lee, Lowndes, Macon, Marengo, Monroe, Montgomery, Perry, Pickens, Pike, Russell, Sumter, Tuscaloosa and Wilcox.
