Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge

Event Date: 
11/07/2017 - 11:00 - 14:30

Join us on November 7 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge (IDC) and honor the incredible work of military canines!

Purina Pro Plan will host an exhibition event on the USS Midway Museum during Veterans Week which will feature stunts and demonstrations by IDC canine competitors and military canines and honor the important work military canines do in service to our country every day!  

Purina Pro Plan believes that every dog is capable of amazing things. Military canines, specifically, are capable of high-level work alongside their military handlers, including assisting in search and rescues, alerting for dangers and working in various environments including water, desert and rocky terrain. An elite group of military canines and their Marine Corps handlers will showcase some of the training skills that prepare them for active duty in timed detection and combat protection at the event.

Human and dog veterans and active military members from Camp Pendleton will be on-site to join the celebration, and San Diego-local, Specialized Trainer for Military and Police K-9s Cameron Ford will be on board for interviews. The event is free to Active Military, Veterans, and their families.

Event will include:

  • National Anthem & Opening Ceremony
  • Military skills and agility competition 
  • The Incredible Dog Challenge
    • Agility competition
    • 30-weave-up-and-back competition
    • Freestyle flying disc competition

This even will both honor military canines and mark the conclusion of Purina Pro Plan’s “Call for Incredible” campaign, a year-long celebration of the IDC 20th anniversary that invited dog owners to share their photos and stories explaining what makes their dogs incredible. For each entry, a one-pound food donation was made to America’s VetDogs, an organization that trains and places guide and service dogs with veterans who have disabilities.  As a result of the campaign, Pro Plan will donate more than 15,000 pounds of dog food.
