This is pretty much the best Tuesday ever. I woke up to an email from Purina with the subject line reading “Pack your bags – Purina Better With Pets Summit in NYC.” Is this really happening?! I already have high blood pressure…give me a break! Okay, don’t. I’m going to New York!
I am so very grateful that Purina has chosen me as a representative of the pet blogging community to partake in the Better with Pets Summit. And better yet? I get to blog about it!
So what is the Purina Better With Pets Summit?
This year’s Purina Better With Pets Summit will center around the theme of emotional wellness for pets and people who love them – specifically focusing on how a high quality of life and pet ownership are increasingly becoming more intertwined. The event is highlighted by three engaging panel discussions on topics like millenials’ bond with cats, stress-free environments impact on pet health and if pets make kids healthier, as well as several keynote presentations and a hands-on, interactive exhibit space to bring these topics to life.
The theme of this event is absolutely perfect for me. We all know how I treat my animals – my life revolves around them. So the fact that the event centers around the theme of emotional wellness for pets and people who love them, is wonderful. I fly out to NYC on November 2nd and the event is on the 3rd at the Brooklyn Expo Center. Wynston was invited but I think that the cross country flight and event will be too much stress for him in a short amount of time.
Before, during and after the Better with Pets Summit, I will be posting on social media using #BetterWithPets. You can bet you’ll see a ton of photos from New York City and this incredible event. I will also be writing two blog posts after when I return home, so be on the look out! I can’t wait to share my experience and everything I’ve learned with you all 🙂
