T&C's - The Kennel


‘The Kennel’ is Autarky’s new ambassador scheme. This is your chance to become part of our passionate team and enjoy some exclusive benefits.

We are on the hunt for three active dogs — one junior (12 weeks to one year old), one adult (one year to six years, 11 months), and one senior (over 7 years) — to represent Autarky and encourage other dog owners across the UK to try the feed that you know and love!

As members of The Kennel, the three dogs will receive a minimum of six months of Autarky (of their choice) and some exciting additional benefits, including Autarky goodie bags to run competitions on their own social channels, a unique discount code to share with your followers, free gifts and more.

If you think your dog has what it takes to be part of The Kennel, simply submit your entry via the form on the website. By entering the competition, you confirm that you have read and understood these Terms and agree to be bound by them.

Check out everything you need to know about The Kennel to enter below:


Entry is open to residents of the United Kingdom only, aged 18 years or over unless otherwise specified.

Employees of Autarky (Dodson & Horrell) and any associated group companies and their immediate families are ineligible to enter. Any such entries will be invalid.

The closing time for entries is Sunday 27th September 2020, 11.59 pm GMT. Any entries received after this time will be disregarded.

Entry to the competition must be by the applicable method and in accordance with the deadlines — as indicated below.

No automated, machine assisted, third-party, syndicate, or other group entries will be accepted. We shall disqualify any entries which, in our reasonable opinion, appear to have used any of these any entry methods.

The promoter’s decision in respect of all matters to do with the competition will be final and no correspondence will be entered into. Entry implies acceptance of these rules. These rules are governed by English law.

Entrants agree that by entering, they are happy to have their pictures and videos shared across Autarky’s social platforms, website, and blog.

Entrants must not already have a pre-existing contract with a different dog food brand.


Entry is by the form via third-party software, Woobox, via the Autarky website only.

To enter, individuals must complete the form with the required fields.

The independent judge will choose a selected number of finalists in September and those selected will make it through to the public voting stage. The three finalists in each category with the most public votes by the closing date (27.9.2020) will win.


Any entries which are incomplete, incorrect, incomprehensible, or not received by Autarky by the closing date will be void.

The ambassadors must claim their prize by 31st October 2020, or another winner(s) will be selected.

In the event of any fault, mistake, misunderstanding or dispute concerning the correctness or acceptability of any answers given by entrants, or the operation of any part of the competition, the decision of Autarky shall be final and no correspondence will be entered into.

We have set a limitation to one entry per email address to ensure people cannot enter more than once. 

To be considered for The Kennel ambassador scheme, the entrant must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a dedicated social media channel for their dog or for their dog to feature heavily in their own personal public social media page
  • Have over 1,000 followers on either Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram
  • Already be fed/be willing to switch to an Autarky diet


Autarky will use an independent judging panel to choose the finalists.

Autarky reserves the right to change the judging panel at any given moment during the competition.

Autarky will open voting via the Autarky Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages where the public can vote for their favourite finalists in each category to be the winners.

The three winning dogs will each receive a sponsorship package worth a minimum of £250, including:

  • Six months-worth of Autarky feed (calculated on the dog’s weight)
  • Free Autarky branded products
  • Competition goodie bags for the ambassadors to host competitions on their own channels
  • 10% off discount code to share with their followers (capped at Autarky’s discretion)
  • Additional 25% off Autarky products

The winners will be notified on the date the winning entries are selected — 26.10.2020 — and will be given until 11.59 pm 31.10.2020 to claim their prize. Failure to respond within the specified time may result in forfeiture of the prize and another winner may be selected. However, Autarky will make all reasonable efforts to contact the winner.

Autarky accepts no responsibility for any costs associated with the prize that are not specifically included in the prize.

Prizes cannot be exchanged for cash, voucher, or product equivalent.


The three winners will be required to sign an agreement with Autarky, whereby they will be obligated to promote the feed in return for the free products. The winners will be required to sign a minimum of a six-month agreement, which consists of — but is not exclusive to — them:

  • Being allocated a unique discount code to be displayed clearly on their social profiles, such as a bio or pinned post.
  • Positively posting about Autarky on their winning social media channel, at least once a week.
  • Having a section of the Autarky website dedicated to the dog and why the owner chose an Autarky diet.

The contact will be sent to the winners once the competition has closed before being announced to the public.


In the event that any entrant does not, or is unable to, comply with these Terms and Conditions or the Competition Information, Autarky shall be entitled at its sole discretion to disqualify such entrant, without any further liability to such entrant. Entrants must comply with any directions given to them by Autarky including in relation to any and all relevant laws, rules and regulations.

These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales and you and we submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of England.

Autarky reserves the right to withdraw or amend any competition as necessary due to circumstances outside its reasonable control.
