ADDITIONAL: The Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge has become a national sensation known for attracting world-class canine athletes in a multi-city tour that culminates each year with a nationally televised championship (each regional event is taped and broadcast across the country in syndication).

Purina Pro Plan’s goal is to give dogs the nutrition to be at their absolute best, helping them to be energetic and resilient, and maintain an ideal body condition, healthy skin and a stunning coat. This year, Purina Pro Plan has introduced PRiME and ReFUEL nutritional supplement bars as part of its Purina Pro Plan SPORT product portfolio, which offers three formulas to fuel athletic dogs based on activity level.

Owners can start their dogs on their own active journey using the Purina Pro Plan P5 app, the next generation of dog training technology that offers owners of all dog breeds and sizes personal plans and video lessons in a variety of canine sports, and is available for free for iOS and Android.

Further information on the Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge and the P5 app is available at Fans can follow the Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge action on Twitter throughout the weekend by following @ProPlan and using #IncredibleDog.
