About 15 registered canines, plus another dozen spectating with their owners, were judged by veterinary nurse Clare Temperton and Dr Lucy Gladwin, of Pets'n'Vets Queenstown, and Otago SPCA inspector Helen Saunders, of Alexandra.
The dogs impressed and entertained the crowd with their agility, retrieving skills, food-eating techniques and tricks.
Each dog received a goody bag from the veterinary clinic.
A total of $488 was raised from registrations and donations towards a new dog-housing facility in Alexandra.
