Once again this year, Purina ProPlan is offering a $1 million prize for whoever can pick the correct brackets for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Remember, judging begins earlier than usual this year, with the hounds and herders being exhibited on Sunday, February 9th.
On February 12th and 13th, top dogs from around the world will venture to New York City to compete for the coveted title of Best in Show at the 142nd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, presented by Purina® Pro Plan®. Only one dog will break through to victory. Who will take the title this year? More than 2800 dogs compete to be named Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, presented by Purina® Pro Plan®. But you only have to correctly pick the 7 Group Winners and the Best in Show Champion for a chance to win $1 Million.†
And just for playing, you could win our daily prize of a year supply of Purina® Pro Plan®! They’re giving away a year supply of Purina® Pro Plan® every day from 01/02/18 – 02/12/18!
Enter here. I would enter, but my picks are ALWAYS abysmal. Regular readers know I never even come close to picking even the right breed, let alone the right dog. I hope you fare better than I would!

Next Saturday, June 11th at 2 pm, you will have an opportunity to watch the Western Regional Finals of the ProPlan Incredible Dog Challenge on Livestream.
If you’ve never seen the Incredible Dog Challenge, you’re really missing out! The Challenge features six dog sports: Agility, Diving Dog, 30 Weave Up & Back, Fetch It!, Freestyle Flying Disc, and a Jack Russell Hurdle Race, all in one place, all on one day. The dogs and their families seem to have a whole bunch of fun, every time, regardless of whether or not the dog wins. Read more about the Challenge on Vice Sports.
Here’s a 2-minute recap of the Eastern Regionals, just to put you in the mood.

(Both times are Eastern, even though the event is being held in Huntington Beach, CA)
If you’ve not seen one of these competitions before, you’re in for a real treat. Events include Diving Dogs, Jack Russell Hurdle Races, Freestyle Flying Disc, Agility, and Fetch It!
Winners from this competition will go head to head with the Eastern Regional winners in St. Louis, MO September 26th – 27th.
The Purina Incredible Dog Challenge was at Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park on April 2nd. All breeds of dogs were welcome, participating in dog diving, agility, weave-pole races, Jack Russell racing, and freestyle Frisbee events. They even fielded a baseball team. The videos from these Eastern Regional Finals are available on BarkNet. There was no way for me to embed them here -sorry! You’ll have to make due here with the still photos they sent along.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
All Dog, all the time! News, photos, reviews, guides and more.
