I have 3 dogs that we have a room for, and was looking for ideas on what we can do for the room to give it the essence of it being a dog room as you would a childs Play room, they are show dogs, so there would be ribbons and trophy's etc, we just cant think of any cool ideas to redo that room especially
for them.

Maybe build a small dog condo with 3 units, (all at ground floor). It should be light enough to move around for cleaning, etc. - maybe out of 1/4-inch plywood with trim.
Paint it to match the rest of the room and put signs with their names over the doors.
Give it an awning on one end that looks like an outdoor cafe and put their food and water bowls there.

Cool answer RP.
CB,
If I can give you any advice at all, it would be to use resilient tile for the floor. A friend of mine put ceramic tile down for his dog's room and cannot get the urine smell from the grout. ( yes it was sealed). Put a 4 X 8 shadow bord, separated by three areas for the dog's awards, on one wall for display. Make a doggie gym,( they have to keep in shape) and hire a cook to prepare their meals by request. The resilient floor was serious, the rest was just fun.
