In November 2015 I had the privilege of attending the Purina Better With Pets Summit in NYC. It was a phenomenal learning experience, and I sure hope I can attend again in the future! The theme of this year’s summit was emotional wellness and during the discussion panels, the talk about stress in our pets peaked my interest the most. The more I delve into the life of animals, the more I realize that they are so extremely emotional and sensitive, just as humans are. So how do we manage our pet’s stress? Is there good and bad stress? What can I do to make my dog or cat less stressed out?
I have always been a supporter of Purina. I trust their products and food, and I adore the people behind the company name. They truly appreciate pet parents and the fact that we want what’s best for our animals. I was able to spend some time with some of the friendly faces behind the Pro Plan name in May 2014 at the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge. The event made me love the company even more and I’ve continued to endorse it (by my own choice) ever since!
This year I had the opportunity to be a part of the Purina Better With Pets Summit in Brooklyn, NY. I was SO thrilled because, in my eyes, Purina is at the top of the “food chain” when it comes to pet companies. At the day long summit, Purina focused on exploring the best ideas for bringing people and pets closer together. It’s a dog mom’s dream!
The time has come! I head to NYC in the morning for the Purina Better With Pets Summit! I am ecstatic and SO grateful that I am getting this opportunity. My sister just moved to Manhattan a couple weeks ago so I will get to see her while I’m there also. But first, a recap of our Halloween!
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!
