The team-mates, as well as Mr Hore's father Jim, were judges at a "bark-up" competition held at the Poolburn Hotel on Sunday as a community fundraising effort for the Poolburn School.
The competition involved about 20 children parading their dogs (or borrowed dogs) on to a stage, then convincing them to jump on to a table and bark for the judges, before jumping through a hoop, over a hay bale and weaving through a slalom.
Jim Hore, an experienced bark-up judge, said he was looking for a dog with obedience as well as a good bark.
Dylan Boulton, of Ranfurly, and his malamute Finn took home the first prize. Hudson McKnight (5), of Poolburn, with "Uncle Hamish's dog, Rog" was second and Olivia Small (4), of Moa Creek, with Mert came third.
Later, after a barbecue, it was the adults' turn to show off their dogs.
MC Arthur Samuel, of Chatto Creek, said if the dog didn't bark then its owner would have to.
Nick Gee, of St Bathans, came first, Tony Pilcher, of St Bathans, second and Matt Herbert, of Omakau, third.
Event organiser Karleigh Small said the event and a mystery bottle auction raised about $5000 for a fence around the school and landscaping.
