This contest is for the dogs. If you have dedicated time to teach your pooch a cool trick, you have a chance to win $1,000 and some free pet care products. Honestly, I'm always impressed when someone teaches their dog a new trick. My dogs know sit but only if there is a treat involved, or they think there's a treat in it for them. Otherwise my dogs just bark a lot and get hair on everything. I know that's on me a the owner and that's why I know it takes a lot to get your dog to listen and perform any type of trick.

If you've put in the time, or you were lucky to get a dog from the Twin Falls Animal Shelter that already knew tricks when you adopted it, submit a video. Vet Naturals is holding their first ever Ultimate Dog Trick Contest. All you need to do is submit a short video showcasing your dogs talent. They even specify that the trick doesn't need to be complex, so maybe my one-trick dogs have a chance.

Get all the contest details and submission info at the Vet Naturals website. The winner gets $1,000 and a three month supply of Vet Naturals Hemp and Hip products.
