Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) January 17, 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.
Companies or products will be nominated in each of several categories including Best Wet Food, Best Dry Food, Best Organic Food, Best Raw Food, Best Treat, Best National Pet Store, Best Toy, Best Dog Trainer, Best Rescue, and more.
This week, the nominees for the Best Wet 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 Wet Dog Food nominees are no exception. They are manufactured in US-based facilities, with thoughtful sourcing, handling, and processing of the foods we feed our dogs every day. We won’t recommend food with ingredients sourced from China.”
“Additionally,” Brandy said, “our Best Wet Dog Food nominees are dedicated to improving the health and vitality of our pets through carefully selecting ingredients, providing nutritionally complete foods, and utilizing manufacturing facilities and procedures with the very best interest of dogs in mind.”
One of Dogington Post’s Best Wet Dog Food nominees began as a retail store in Los Angeles, California before the owners decided to manufacture their own line of natural pet food, opening their own micro-cannery in 2011.
Since 1986, the second Best Wet Dog Food nominee has been dedicated to providing wholesome, nutritious, and delicious food for dogs and cats with a philosophy that nutrition is the single most important factor in a pet’s quality of life.
The site’s third Best Wet Dog Food nominee was founded by two men who set out to create better food for their own dogs and decided to share it with the world. Not a typical wet food, it is gently cooked and then shipped to consumers frozen.
The Dogington Post’s fourth Best Wet Dog Food nominee offers classic canned food recipes that are, “food worthy of a fork!” Made in their own US-based facilities, using only real meats, fresh vegetables and wholesome ingredients that are sourced locally, never from China. This nominee truly has our dog’s best interest at heart.
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 four nominees to win the Dogington Post Award in the Best Wet 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.
