Purina Marks 20th 'Incredible Dog Challenge' at Midway Museum
Missouri Ag Connection - 11/10/2017

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge (IDC), Purina Pro Plan, St. Louis, hosted an exhibition event on the historic USS Midway Museum in San Diego during Veterans Week. The event marked the conclusion of the brand's "Call for Incredible" campaign celebrating the incredible things dogs are capable of, and featured demonstrations of agility, 30-weave racing, and freestyle flying disc by top IDC canine athletes on the deck of America's longest-serving aircraft carrier of the 20th century. Footage from the event can be seen here.

As part of "Call for Incredible" campaign, Purina Pro Plan invited dog owners to share photos and stories explaining what makes their dogs incredible. Each entry triggered a one-pound food donation of Purina Pro Plan to America's VetDogs, an organization that trains and places guide and service dogs with veterans who have disabilities. As a result of the campaign, Purina Pro Plan donated more than 15,000 pounds of dog food.

"For two decades, the Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge has been giving talented canines a stage to demonstrate their amazing athletic abilities," said Christi Maginn, Brand Director, Purina Pro Plan. "We're honored to host this special event abroad the historic USS Midway Museum, America's living symbol of freedom, during Veterans Day week."

"America's VetDogs is honored to partner with Purina Pro Plan to highlight the service of our military men, women and canines. Purina Pro Plan's commitment to share our mission of serving veterans with disabilities as well as highlight the important work and impact highly-skilled service dogs provide our nation's veterans when they return from duty is invaluable," said Wells B. Jones, CEO from America's VetDogs. "Service dogs play a tremendous role in leading veterans to lives with dignity and independence while providing support, mutual love and companionship."

Purina Pro Plan is committed to delivering high quality nutrition to help fuel dogs so they can do the incredible. Whether they're protecting our country, jumping off docks or napping on the patio, there's a Purina Pro Plan formula to meet dogs' specific nutritional needs. Purina Pro Plan is dedicated to helping promote healthy living in dogs of all ages and activity levels through nutrition that performs.

Dog lovers in southern California were invited to come to the event and show their support aboard the USS Midway Museum in San Diego. For those who couldn't attend the USS Midway event in-person, a one-hour televised special will air in syndication in January 2018.
