Take A Bite Out Of Our Shark Week Contest

It’s Shark Week – and it’s also your chance to win an Animal Planet Hammerhead Shark Dog Costume.


When you think about it, dogs can be a lot like sharks. I know Oscar is, especially in the kitchen. When I’m cooking, he’ll wait patiently, at a short distance, until food drops. And that’s when he dives in for the kill!


PetGuide.com wants to hear what predatory or shark-like instincts your dog has. He may wait under the table while you’re eating dinner, waiting for food to drop. Perhaps he attacks his favorite toy with ferocity. Or maybe you can’t get him out of the pool or lake when he decides to go swimming. Even if he has sharp sharky teeth – tell us about it in the comment section below.


One lucky winner will swim away with an Animal Planet Hammerhead Shark Dog Costume. It comes with a shark foam head piece with felt teeth and padded costume (value: $29.99). Sizes come in XS, S, M, L. And don’t forget to tune into Shark Week August 10 to August 16. It starts at 8 PM and airs on Discovery Channel.
