Zuke's will be attending as many as six USDAA Regional Championships in 2015, as well as USDAA's marquee event, the Cynosport World Games Oct. 21â€“25, in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. During each USDAA sanctioned event, Zuke's will be handing out free samples to anyone who stops by their booth at one of the shows.
"Partnering with Zuke's is a great fit for USDAA," said President Kenneth Tatsch. "Our competitors and their dogs are highly trained athletes who work hard to stay in top physical condition. Rewarding the dogs for a job well done with a natural, healthy and nutritious treat makes perfect sense."
Zuke's first USDAA event, the Wild West Regional, was a great success, according to Stacey Praizner, events and sponsorship manager at Zuke's. "Zuke's has always had health and wellness for pets as a priority, and we are looking forward to being a part of future USDAA events."
USDAA is the US's largest independent canine sports authority, according to the group. USDAA maintains the highest standards of competition and offers the best events for dog agility competitors, spectators and sponsors. Events strive to promote the sport of dog agility as a recreational, family sport that fosters responsible pet ownership.
