We sponsor some of the top dog shows in the country because we want to celebrate the potential inherent in dogs of all breeds and backgrounds. Dog shows give everyone the chance to see dogs at their very best, and we love putting them in the spotlight.
We sponsored the Westminster Dog Show for the first time in 2012.
For years, we've been excited to see dogs that are fed Purina® Pro Plan® winning the event. 2013 marked our 7th consecutive year of Pro Plan-fed Best in Show champions. In 2013, all seven group winners, including the Best in Show winner, Banana Joe, were dogs that are fed Purina® Pro Plan®.
When we see that owners of exceptional, high-performing dogs count on one of our products, we know we've done our job.

Purina is proud to sponsor the National Dog Show, hosted by the Kennel Club of Philadelphia and sanctioned by the American Kennel Club. This dog show is a Thanksgiving Day tradition for many people in America, and we've been honored to be a sponsor for the past 11 years.
2012's winner, "Sky," a Wire Fox Terrier, was a Pro Plan®-fed dog. She also took home Best in Show at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship, proving that Pro Plan-fed dogs are often the ones to beat. We're proud whenever show dogs act as living proof that our Pro Plan foods help bring out the greatness in dogs.
