Posted on 9:01 am in April 2013, Over $5000, Over 16 by Lynnie

Purina Dog Chow is holding its first ever contest, and we are excited to shine a light on all that our dogs do for our families, making them the heroes of our videos.

Purina Dog Chows wants you to create a film that shows how – STRONG DOGS MAKE FAMILIES STRONGER. Studies have shown that if your dog is healthy and strong, he has the power to change a family by motivating them to move, connect, interact and ultimately be happy. Just think about all those times you were busy, distracted, or tired, and then, your dog came into the room, bringing his energy and brightness – instantly changing the mood. He brings your family together, whether it be through a walk, playing in the backyard, or even sharing a quiet moment together. There are so many stories out there on how your strong dog, ultimately has made your family stronger. We want to hear them all!
