Watch the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge Finals on NBC This Saturday! #greatdog

Jack Russell hurdle racing at the PIDC finals last October. 
Each year, the Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge features some of the most athletic dogs from around the country competing in agility, disc, diving and racing events. This Saturday, January 12 you can catch all the action from the 2012 finals on the national broadcast on NBC at 5 p.m. EST.

I attended both a local qualifier in Atlanta last year and also the 2012 finals at Purina Farms in Gray Summit, Mo., last October. The events are fabulous fun for the whole family, and if you ever have the opportunity to attend a local event or the final, I highly recommend it! And even better yet, the events are free AND you can bring your own dog to watch all the action!


Jennifer and True qualified from our local qualifier in Atlanta last year, and they earned a spot on the winner's podium at the finals!


The dock diving dogs at Purina Farms were spectacular!



Watch Saturday for all the action including events in Diving Dog, Freestyle Flying Disc, 30-Weave Up-and-Back, Jack Russell Hurdle Racing and Agility. You can also follow the fun on twitter using hashtag #greatdog.

And because I love a good tear-jerker (in a good way) of a commercial, I leave you with this... because inside every good dog is a great dog!



I can be great!
