On Thursday, July 8, 2010 DOGSWELL® will be hosting a Chubby Puppy Casting Call for their SHAPE UP® Your Pup Challenge™. Bring your overweight and out-of-shape dogs to Woofers at 2420 Hoffmeyer Road between 2:00pm and 8:00pm to register for the challenge. All participants will have their photo taken for their online profile, and receive free SHAPE UP® treats and dry food samples while supplies last!

The SHAPE UP® YOUR PUP CHALLENGE™ is an opportunity to raise awareness for the growing rate of pet obesity in the US, and provide pet owners with healthy and sustainable weight management solutions. From now through September 2010, DOGSWELL® will supply contestants with discounts on their low-calorie, low-fat weight management formula called SHAPE UP®, along with tips from experts on healthy and sustainable weight management practices! Challengers will have personal pup profiles, viewable at http://www.dogswell.com/shapeuppups, and will compete to see who is the most committed to shaping up. At the end of the competition we will ask the public to help select 3 winners by voting online for their favorite contestant. All winners will receive free food and treats, as well as the chance to become the official SHAPE UP® Spokes Pup!
