These qualities will be exemplified in three selected finalists, which will be announced on October 1st.
Submissions and fan nominations for the 8th Annual Streamy Awards are now closed. Fans will be able to vote for their favorite “Milk-Bone Dog of the Year Honor” finalist on Twitter beginning October 1st. Nominees in all other Streamy Awards categories will be announced tomorrow, September 25th.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Streamy Awards to present the Dog of the Year Honor,” said Jonathan Rodgers, senior brand manager, Milk-Bone. “At Milk-Bone we believe that all dogs – from service animals to our everyday companions – bring so much joy and love to our lives every day that they deserve to be recognized for the first time among their human counterparts at the Streamy Awards. Dogs live with more enthusiasm, love with more heart, and see the world with more perspective. We are excited for the opportunity to celebrate them with the Milk Bone Dog of the Year Honor.”
“Dogs are the internet’s favorite animal, and YouTube has been their playground since that first dog stepped on a skateboard,” said Drew Baldwin, Creator of the Streamy Awards. “The world wouldn’t be the same without dogs, lives are often transformed because of them, and it’s time that we honor all the joy that they give to us. I’m looking forward to recognize our furry friends who make our lives brighter every day!”
