Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
As part of a larger initiative to educate dog owners on proper nutrition, effective training, and other ways to raise a happy and healthy dog, the Dogington Post reviewed products, toys, food, treats and trainers for their first annual Dogington Post Awards of 2012.
Three companies or products will be nominated in each of several categories including Best Canned Food, Best Dry Food, Best Organic Food, Best Raw Food, Best Treat, Best Toy, Best Rescue, and more.
This week, the nominees for the Best Dry Dog Food category were announced via the website and Dogington Post’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
“We’re using strict criteria when nominating companies and products for these awards,” said Brandy Arnold, Content Editor for Dogington Post. “The Best Dry Dog Food nominees are no exception. These companies all manufacture their food in the USA with locally sourced ingredients. We won’t recommend food with ingredients sourced from China.”
“Additionally,” Brandy said, “our Best Dry Dog Food nominees have a proven track record of safety and high standards of nutrition. They put our dogs’ health first.”
One of Dogington Post’s Best Dry Dog Food nominees comes from a mission-driven company with a fierce dedication to both providing dogs with the highest quality food and, in the process, saving the lives of abandoned dogs in the communities where their product is sold. For each bag of dog food purchased, this company donates an equal amount of dog food to shelters and rescues.
Since 1988, the second Best Dry Dog Food nominee has had a long-standing tradition of manufacturing premium dog food and treats with only the finest ingredients. This nominee uses real whole foods that are locally sourced and processed as little as possible in order to create the highest standards, not only for themselves, but also for the entire pet food industry.
The site’s third Best Dry Dog Food nominee was founded in 1992 after it’s founders worked with a team of veterinarians, nutritionists and breeders to make pet food healthier. The company’s philosophy includes only using high quality, whole ingredients, no artificial additives, and strict quality checks to ensure safety.
Dogington Post reaches over 2.5 million dog lovers each week. The site’s readers will be asked to vote for their choice of the three nominees to win the Dogington Post Award in the Best Dry Dog Food category.
All award winners will be announced after each of the categories have been voted on. Winners will be chosen by a combination of fan votes and committee and announced in January 2013.
Winners will receive the Dogington Post Top Dog Seal of Approval, massive social media recognition and a press release by Dogington Post announcing their award.
