The Nutro Company Presents the Nashville Lifestyle Cover Dog Search

NASHVILLE, TN, March 19, 2010 – Does your dog have what it takes to be a star? All dogs – big and small – are invited to attend the Nashville Lifestyle Cover Dog Search presented by The Nutro Company®. The event will be held tomorrow, March 20, 2010, at Cheeckwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art in Nashville.

“At The Nutro Company®, we believe in providing a lifetime of health for pets through the power of natural nutrition,” stated David Ansell, president, The Nutro Company®. “What better way to showcase that commitment than to sponsor a search for the healthiest, most beautiful dog in Nashville, amidst such impressive natural surroundings.”

The Nutro Company®, a new member of the Nashville community, is a pioneer in the natural pet food category, making top quality pet food since 1926. Their pet food products – including MAX®, NATURAL CHOICE®, ULTRA™ and GREENIES ® – contain only the highest quality, all-natural and purposeful ingredients that deliver nutrition solutions for every pet. Nutro® pet food provides healthy, superior nutrition that can actually be seen, such as guaranteed improvement to pets’ skin and coat – important criteria for a Cover Dog.

The contest will be judged by a panel of celebrities and the winner will be featured on the cover of Nashville Lifestyle’s May “People and Their Pets” issue. Advance entry is $20 per pet, $25 per pet on the day of the event. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Nashville Humane Association and Brown Dog Foundation. The event will feature live music from The Dan Bird Band and all attendees will receive special gift bags from The Nutro Company®.
