Wag! and Lindsey Vonn’s Dogs are Searching for Top Dog Mom of the Year




(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Wag!, the country’s largest on-demand mobile dog walking and dog care app, is doing a national search for the Top Dog Mom of the Year, to be announced this Mother’s Day. The contest judges are three lucky pups who call Olympic Gold Medalist Lindsey Vonn their mom. Bear and Leo Vonn were rescued by the alpine ski racer.

Whether a dog mom has rescued dozens of pups or takes astonishing care of just one special dog, Wag! and the Vonn Dogs want to hear about an amazing pet parent who deserves to be called Top Dog Mom. The winner will receive a Mom’s Day Off Prize Package, comprised of a $1,000 grant provided by Wag! to an animal-welfare organization of the winner’s choice, 15 free Wag! walks, a bundle of dog toys and supplies valued at $100, and a $500 Spafinder gift card. 

“I love being a mom to Lucy, Bear and Leo,” said Vonn. “I know there are tons of incredible dog mothers out there, and I can’t wait to see the nominations and see who my dogs pick as the winner!”

Bear Vonn, a chow retriever rescue dog, added: “I can’t wait to see the pics and videos of the Best Dog Mom nominees, although it’ll be hard to beat ours.” Leo Vonn, a mutt, barked his agreement.

“This Mother’s Day, we want to recognize great dog moms for their hard work,” said Wag! CEO Hilary Schneider. “As the mom of three humans and two dogs, I know exactly how appreciated a moment of peace can be,”

The contest launches April 27 and closes May 10. The finalists and the winner will be announced on May 13, Mother’s Day. Any dog mom is eligible to be nominated. To nominate a potential Dog Mom of the Year, click here.

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
