Ultra-Premium Rawhide Chunky Chews® is giving one fetching dog an opportunity to shine in the company's 2009 promotional campaign. The dog treat's first annual national photo contest asks big-dog lovers to submit a funny, touching, or just plain cute photo of four-legged friends enjoying a Chunky Chew, plus a short essay stating why they choose Chunky Chews. The grand prize winning dog will be part of our 2009 advertising campaign and receive a $250 dog gift pack. The first 100 accepted entrants will receive a complimentary sample of the product. The first runner-up will receive a $100 gift pack. This first 100 owner's submitting their photo and essay earn a free Chunky Chews just for entering.
For the past 25 years, Rawhide Brand Chews have been a favorite, natural rawhide product for dogs. The Ultra-Premium Rawhide Chunky Chews® were designed to meet the needs of owners seeking chews for their large-breed dogs.
"This contest is a fun way to reward our faithful customers and their best friends," said Darlene Frudakis, president and COO for PetAg, Inc. "The big-dog friendly shapes and nutriceutical marinades available help make our solid rawhides especially pleasing for aggressive chewers," she added.
According to the American Pet Product Manufacturers Association Pet Owners' Survey, 87 percent of dog owners choose rawhide chews specifically, and 48 percent of owners seek chews for large breeds including Labrador Retrievers and Golden Retrievers.
Chunky Chews are made from the hides of 100% natural grass-fed beef cattle and processed without added chemicals, bleaches or preservatives. They come in all-natural or with an added marinade of glucosamine which addresses joint issues that can afflict larger breeds. The product has layers of solid rawhide that is compressed and tied into the patented Round Safety-Knot design that designed for aggressive chewers.
