Haute Dogs Pageants | Long Beach, Calif.Contestants ranging in age from four months to 17 years are expected to again travel to Long Beach, from as far as northern California, Las Vegas, Utah, Montana, Oklahoma and Arizona, to compete for the coveted 2013 titles.

The quadrupeds will parade down a grassy runway that includes a 100-ft. red carpet runway, flanked by hundreds of gawkers and a panel of real-life beauty queen judges.  Judging is based on charm, first impression, face, figure and personality.

The Haute Dog Pageants are a fundraiser for Rudd's nonprofit 501c3 Community Action Team (C.A.T.) of which "Haute Dogs" and "Operation Santa Paws" are a part. Each dog in the contest donates a fee and several thousand dollars was raised from entry fees, $5 front-row seating rentals along the runway and vendors space rentals. 


Leave plenty of time for parking - more than 1,000 spectators are expected again this year.



NOTE: Each contest’s winners are announced right after each contest -- within about 5 minutes of the finish of each. Dogs can enter multiple contests.
