If you have ever watched that dog show parody movie Best In Show, you will definitely enjoy the Real Thing namely the National Dog Show presented by Purina. In fact, watching the show has become a Thanksgiving Tradition in more than 20 million US households as it follows after the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

In fact, if your dog would like to be part of this fabulous show by starring in a commercial that will be aired during the show, this could be your pooch’s chance.Through November 5, pet lovers across the country are invited to post a video of their dogs going #BonkersForBeggin on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Select winners’ videos may appear in a Beggin’ Strips TV commercial, set to air during The National Dog Show  on November 28, 2019.

Visit Purina’s Facebook page and comment on the #BonkersForBeggin post with a video showing your dog’s crazy reaction to Beggin’ Strips (either a visible Beggin’ package or treat) with the hashtags #BonkersForBeggin and #contest.

Good luck and enjoy the show!

tip of the day

Dogs (and some cats) like cool treats just as kids do. Consider freezing Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree dietary supplements in an ice tray and serve ice as a summer treat. Alternatively, turn the frozen treat into something special by freezing the mixture in small plastic cups and using a natural chewy treat as the stick. Insert the treat when the puree is partly frozen to get the stick to stand up properly. The treat should be easy to remove from the cup if you run the cup briefly under lukewarm water.
