Purina and Ree Drummond have teamed up to create The Pioneer Woman Dog Treats line. Launching exclusively at Walmart and Sam's, the new treats line is inspired by the home-style recipes Ree Drummond makes for her own family on their ranch in Oklahoma, and backed by Purina's 90 years of experience in pet nutrition.
"My friends at Purina and I share the same passion for creating tasty, nutritious food and we're committed to bringing high quality ingredients to the forefront," said Drummond. "Pets have always had a special place in my heart, so I'm thrilled that dogs everywhere can now experience a taste inspired by my family's favorite recipes!"
The new line of adult dog treats is made with simple, high-quality ingredients and delivers a hearty, wholesome taste that dogs love. Offering nine delicious flavors in three different categories: Crunchy, Meaty and Chews, dog owners can now share their love for the simple, authentic goodness of home-style deliciousness with their dogs. Flavors include:
"At Purina we strive to provide best-in-class pet nutrition, and we're excited to explore a new frontier of dog treats with the American-favorite Pioneer Woman brand,'" said Ryan Gass, Senior Brand Manager of Purina Treats. "Both reigning from America's Heartland, we know the value of a home-style meal and now have created a similar experience in the form of a treat for dogs. No matter which flavor you choose, your dog will get a treat he'll love made with ingredients you can trust."
To celebrate this new line of treats, Purina is bringing The Pioneer Woman's ranch to the city. On May 15, all dogs (and fans) are welcome to visit Bryant Park in New York City to get a taste of the Oklahoma prairie. There will be plenty of The Pioneer Woman Dog Treats to go around and attendees will have a chance to experience Ree's ranch firsthand.
Backed by the expertise of more than 500 scientists, including veterinarians, pet nutritionists and behaviorists, The Pioneer Woman Dog Treats line joins Purina's portfolio of wet and dry pet food and treat options for pet owners looking for high quality, safe, best-in-class nutrition and treats for the pets they love every day of the year.
