The Week #1 ChallengeWhat do you do with your dog to help keep the pounds off? I don't know about you, but when I see October appear on the calendar I also imaging a big red sign that says WARNING: You are about to enter the holiday weight-gain period!
Halloween (and lots of treating) is right around the corner with holiday guests and entertaining not far behind. And that means that you and your pets are likely to indulge just a little more than usual.
So with that in mind, we bring you the....
No Grain, No Gain Challenge

The ABOUND Philosophy
ABOUND was founded on the belief that pet foods could be better, not just by a little, but by leaps and bounds. They envisioned a pet food that used all-natural ingredients, contained high-quality proteins as the first ingredient, and included real vegetables and wholesome whole grains.
And for furry friends with more sensitive digestive systems, ABOUND now offers a grain free line with NO wheat, corn or soy fillers, NO animal-by product meal and NO artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
Benefits of Grain Free
Grain free pet foods more closely mimic your pet’s natural, ancestral diet. ABOUND Grain Free recipes are protein-rich and feature easy-to-digest carbohydrates, with none of the grains that some pets find difficult to digest.
Take a look at the variety of grain free dog food and treat options from ABOUND! We haven't tried all of these yet, but Rocco LOVES the one's we have tried!
- ABOUND Grain Free Salmon & Sweet Potato Recipe is made with high-quality protein-rich salmon to help build and maintain strong muscles as well as essential vitamins, minerals and important antioxidants help support the immune system.
- ABOUND Grain Free Sweet Potato Slices
- ABOUND Grain Free Fruit & Veggie Sweet Potato Sticks
ABOUND Grain Free Fish & Sweet Potato Sticks
- ABOUND Grain Free Sweet Potato Sticks with Blueberries
Made from North America sourced ingredients, the treats are full of healthy and tasty ingredients like sweet potato, cranberries and blueberries, and with a high fiber content to help maintain your pup's digestive system. Sounds like the perfect reward after -- or during -- a long walk or hike.
ABOUND products are exclusively available at The Kroger Co. Family of Stores.
