What Pet Owners Are Saying About The Nose Of Tralee
Etna & Sol, Wexford Nose
Pet Sitters Ireland ‘Nose of Tralee’ Competition in a word is “awesome”. Like-minded people celebrating the love of their pets. Ultimately, competing against each other for the ‘crown’, but supporting each other all the way. Friendships and bonds were made for life. An amazing experience
Shauna and Gia, 2014 Nose Runner-Up
The Nose of Tralee competition is a lot of fun and it's wonderful to see how many people out there adore their pets. Gia came runner up in 2014 and I couldn't have been prouder or more delighted. If you love your pet, this is the competition for you
Buster, 2014 Nose Winner
My name is Buster, I’m 11 years young & I’m a Staffordshire bull terrier from county down NI. I won the 2014 Nose of Tralee competition & since doing so I have become a bit of a celebrity, which I thoroughly enjoy as I am a real people pooch. I've even been on TV, the seven o'clock show invited me on their show last summer & me & mummy had an absolute ball, mingling with the show hosts & other fellow celebs. The reason I entered the competition was to try to promote staffies in a positive way, you see there's a lot of bad press about us but none of its true. Anyone that meets me falls in love with my character & they love to hear about my Nose of Tralee journey
Rachel & Daisy
The nose of Tralee was a great experience for us as Daisy being chosen to be the limerick nose, it gave us a great opportunity to campaign & represent Bull Breeds. We attended dog shows & store appearances & featured on 2 radio stations & appeared in local newspapers. We also had our campaign poster sponsored by a local business. It was great to see so many people vote & get behind a Pitbull when they are the most misjudged dog breed today. Out of 32 finalists, we were so thrilled to place 3rd with over 3.3k votes. Along the way, we made great friends who we shared our love for our pets & our passion for animals. We can't wait to see the nose of Tralee 2016 competition take off & get behind the new Limerick nose. I'd also like to say a massive thank you to Kate from Pet Sitters Ireland for investing her time into this fantastic competition & setting up a group where we can all stay in touch & get updates on ~ other noses
Stacey & Ginger, 2015
The Nose of Tralee was so much fun. I got to meet so many new people who all shared the same love, their pets. We all became good friends and continue to share our stories as well as helping each other and giving advice. As the winner of 2015, I think all pet lovers should enter their fur babies. It is definitely a fun filled competition. Thank you Kate for giving us this opportunity
Courtney and Teddy
The Nose of Tralee was such a great experience for us. My Teddy was diagnosed with Epilepsy around the time I entered him so having him picked as our county's Nose was amazing when we were going through such a difficult time. Although we didn't win the overall competition we are just lucky to have been able to take part in it because we met a lot of lovely people and new friends from all over Ireland. Teddy even has sone fans in his county and gets recognised when he's out on walks!
Daisy had an absolute ball in 2017, and met many wonderful people during her campaign for Nose of Tralee! It was so exciting and she loved her runner up prizes!
