We all know that our dogs have unique personalities all their own. Some are goofy, others are grumpy. Some are energetic and happy go lucky. Others prefer to watch the world pass them by from the comfortable rug on the back porch. Is your dog a Maverick or Charmer? Socialite or Stargazer? As the owner of Shetland Sheepdogs – sometimes known as miniature collies, my pups fall into the energetic category. It’s in their nature to be on the go, moving and herding.
But did you know it’s possible to pinpoint your pets traits on a deeper level? To understand traits like empathy, communication, and spatial memory? Purina Pro Plan wants to educate dog owners about canine cognition and the role nutrition plays in brain health as part of their dog’s overall well-being. In partnership with Dognition, they’re helping dog parents better understand their dog through 20 fun (and easy to play) games that mentally stimulate him or her while assessing their cognition.
Dognition was created by Dr. Brian Hare and other leading canine scientists, to allow owners a glimpse into the way our dogs see the world. The idea is that by understanding your dog’s mind, you’ll build a deeper connection with the personality behind the bright eyes and wagging tail that greet you every day.
You know that keeping your brain sharp is important for your overall health, but did you know that the same is true for dogs too? In addition to Dognition, Purina Pro Plan also introduced BRIGHT MIND Adult formulas this spring. The food features a proprietary blend of brain-supporting nutrients that support cognitive health in adult dogs.
As part of the partnership, starting this month, purchase any specially-marked bag of Purina Pro Plan BRIGHT MIND dry dog food to receive an exclusive access code inside for a FREE Dognition® Assessment, a $19 value, while supplies last. You can try 3 of the games for free right now! I have five codes myself to give to my readers, let me know if you’d like one!
