Welcome to America's Top Dog Model Management


America’s Top Dog Model ® organization has a national presence discovering, developing, and managing top dog models for fourteen years. Our unique approach to the modeling industry has gained international media attention in Pet Product News International, Caesars Way, In Touch Magazine, Dogster, Country, Atlantic Avenue, Atlanta Latinos Magazine, Boca Raton Observer, Bronze MagazinePalm Beach Illustrated, Palm Beach Daily News, Palm Beach Post, Sun-SentinelWendy Williams Show, WPTV- West Palm Beach, NBC News Los Angeles, and many more. 

Passion projects include our annual America’s Top Dog Model ® Contest and annual Worth Avenue Pet Parade. America's Top Dog Model's mission is to "celebrate dogs that make a difference in people's lives."

During the many years of organizing America's Top Dog Model Contest, Jo Jo Harder, the founder, has received numerous emails from people inquiring about how to get their dog into modeling. This popular question inspired her second book How to Become a Top Dog Model. It's the "go-to" book for pet parents who want to make their dog a star, or at least look like one. 

In addition, many of America's Top Dog Model ® winners and finalists have launched successful modeling careers through the national contest, which represents an opportunity for unlimited possibilities.

A stylist and former model herself, with over ten years of experience in the canine modeling industry, she decided that it is time, and certainly fitting to launch America's Top Dog Model ® Management division.

America’s Top Dog Model Management is a consulting division that was formed to help build, brand, and guide the careers of canine models and their people, as well as support the media industry. Our primary focus is to provide the tools and support that allow canine models to archive their goals. All career decisions are collaborative and reflect the best interests of each individual.
