petMD.com is on the Hunt for America's Fittest Dog
The winner of the Fur-tastic Fitness Contest will receive $1,000 in prizes
MIAMI, April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With bathing suit season just around the corner, petMD.com is on the hunt for America's Fittest Dog. Now through April 15, dog owners nationwide are invited to enter their diesel dogs and buff barkers in petMD's Fur-tastic Fitness Contest on Facebook. The winning pet will receive over $1,000 in prizes.
To enter, pet parents must explain why their pooch deserves to be named America's Fittest Dog. How many hours do they work out – or play – each week? Have they received any awards or honors? Submissions must also include a quality photograph that shows the dog in action.
"In addition to providing pet parents easy access to pet health information, petMD is also committed to raising awareness of preventive pet care and the role exercise and nutrition play in a pet's life," states Nicolas Chereque, petMD founder. "We launched this contest to underscore the importance of fitness and to highlight those dogs that lead healthy, active lives."
A team of petMD judges will carefully select 10 finalists with the most impressive qualifications and post them to Facebook on April 30. Voting will be open to the entire Facebook community for two weeks to determine who will be named America's Fittest Dog.
The winner will receive a $750 PetFoodDirect.com gift certificate, a PawGanics gift basket, a Chuckit! ball launcher and tennis ball pack, a Gnawin' Forever chew toy and refill, a Cardio Canine hands free dog leash, and a year's supply of NaturVet all-in-one powder supplement. Each of the nine finalists will also receive prizes from the contest's sponsors.
