GREAT DOGS JOURNIED TO TAMPA-ST. PETERSBURG FOR THE PURINA® PRO PLAN® INCREDIBLE DOG CHALLENGE

PLEASE NOTE:  THE EASTERN REGIONAL COMPETITION HAPPENED ON MAY 3-4 IN ST. PETE -- NATIONAL COMPETION IS IN OCTOBER 2013 IN ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI

 

 

 

                   Some of the most athletic dogs from across the country met at Spa Beach Park in St. Petersburg on Saturday, May 4, to participate in the Purina® Pro Plan® Incredible Dog Challenge® Eastern Regional event.

 

                    This premier canine sporting event features an array of dog breeds competing in several "Olympic-style" events, including high-flying disc routines, head-to-head weave pole racing, large and small dog agility courses, Jack Russell hurdle racing and the crowd favorite – dog diving – where dogs take a running leap off of a 40-foot dock into a 19,000-gallon pool of water. Winners from the Eastern Regional event receive an automatic invitation to the National Champions in St. Louis in October.

 

                     This event has become a national sensation known for attracting world-class canine athletes in a multi-city tour that culminates each year with a nationally televised championship (each regional event is taped and broadcast across the country in syndication).

 

                      Owners can start their dogs on an active journey toward greatness, using the new Purina® Pro Plan® P5® app, the next generation of dog training technology that offers owners of all dog breeds and sizes personal plans and video lessons in a variety of canine sports, available for free via the Apple® App Store. Spectators at the event will have the opportunity to try out the app with iPads set up for a first-hand experience. The P5® is part of the Purina® Pro Plan® SPORT product portfolio, which offers three formulas to fuel athletic dogs based on activity level.

 

                                    Further information on the Purina® Pro Plan® Incredible Dog Challenge® and the P5® app is available at proplan.com.
