Jinks isolation portrait competition/giveaway

To celebrate us becoming 1 as a business, but also acknowledging the fact it's fallen at such a strange time, we're hosting a competition/giveaway that you can enter by posting portraits representing your experience during the ongoing isolation. Photo can be of your dog and/or you, and you can enter on Instagram or Facebook.

Just make sure to tag us and use the hashtag #jinksisolationportrait so we can see your entry.


Full blog post including what we've been getting up to is here.


Competition/giveaway #jinksisolationportrait
A dog or human and/or dog self-portrait capturing up how ‘life on lockdown’ has been for you.

We’re approaching 1 year open as a business (we can’t quite believe it!), our original celebration plans are having to change given the current environment, so we think this portrait challenge will be a great way to celebrate. We’ll also have a few things launching, and maybe even a discount code/sale. We’ll have a separate blog post about our 1 year celebration, and new launches(!), but for now we’ll run our portrait giveaway until our 1st birthday (May 17th). We’ll pick one winner and if it’s hard to decide we’ll give some smaller prizes runner ups.

This could be a portrait with your dog(s), one just of your dog(s) if you don’t like being in photos, or one for each of you! This could highlight new activities you’ve been doing, showing how you’ve been co-existing at the moment or how you’ve been coping if you’re a key worker and times are stressful. Even a small video showing a new trick you’ve learnt, or behaviour you’ve improved! Whilst the country is facing and has faced some huge losses (maybe even you have too), this could be a great way to highlight some of the good that may have come out of lockdown.


The prize, pick 1 of the following prizes ;

  • 1 BioThane Lead and collar set - we’ll send out a list of BioThane colours to pick from, and you can pick from any hardware colour you like. Pick between an adjustable or fixed length/sports collar, and a standard or training lead.

  • A snuffle mat and a travel mat - snuffle mat can be XS/S or medium and a travel mat medium or small- we’ll send you a list of colours to choose from.

  • A snuffle bag and a faux fur tuggy - we’ll send you a list of colours and sizes to choose from.

  • Velvet/colour shift snood and a t-shirt from our stock (if we have nothing in your size, we can figure something out!)

Rules/guidelines :

  • Must be safe for your dog

  • Show something representative of your experience in lockdown

  • Tag us and use the hashtag #jinksisolationportrait

  • Post before 17th May

  • Bonus: tag someone who you’d love to see enter in the comments of either Caitlin’s or Amy’s self portraits on the Jinks Instagram and we'll give you an extra entry!

  • You do have to follow us to win… but we won’t make you share wildly etc.

  • The winner won’t just be based on photo quality, but also what it shows, so no worries if you just have a phone camera :)

  • You can enter twice only - one for your photo and one for tagging a friend.


To start us off Caitlin & Link have done one (self timers/remotes are great!). There’s a few poses because Link is too cute, and I tried to include a few things representing what we’ve been up to, but without making a cluttered photo (I would also have included something to show our intro to hoopers training but Link’s paw has put a pause to that. (Check out TRI Dog training for the online hoopers training, more information on the reward and instructors across the country here!).
