Unleash Your Dogs’ Winning Spirit with “Purina for the Win” and Kristin and Kyle Juszczyk

As athletes and sports fans gear up for the most highly anticipated sporting event of 2024, Purina Treats is inviting dog owners and their pets to satisfy their winning spirit and compete in their own summer field games, Purina for the Win.

Purina Treats is partnering with pro football player Kyle Juszczyk and his wife, fashion designer Kristin Juszczyk, to launch Purina for the Win challenges, a series of games where dogs and their owners can bond together through play.

Dog owners will also get a chance to win a $10,000 grand prize and other weekly prizes including popular treats Beggin’ and Busy Bone through the Purina for the Win Sweepstakes.*

“We’re both very active and often find ourselves engaging in fun competition. Naturally, our pups Mozzarella and Pierogi have picked up some of that spirit,” said Kristin. “We partnered with Purina Treats to encourage fellow dog-owners to go beyond the usual routines and bond with their pets through the challenges.”

According to Kyle, the couple love to get active with their pets – even if the dogs occasionally need to be persuaded with their favorite treats.

Indulge Your Competitive Spirit with the Purina for the Win Challenges

Between July 1 and Aug. 31, dog owners can engage with Purina for the Win challenges by participating in field games released every other Monday on Purina’s social channels (@purinatreats, @beggin, @purinabusybone). Owners can share their dogs’ athletic skills on social and invite others to join the fun by sharing their pets’ completed challenges on Instagram using #purinaforthewin and tagging @purinatreats. Participants are encouraged to use the new, limited-edition Beggin’ and Busy Bone gold packaging now available exclusively at Walmart.

Purina for the Win Challenges include:

  • The Beggin’ Shuffle: Put a Beggin’ Strip under one of two cups and shuffle them in front of your dog several times. Once the cups have been shuffled, see if your dog can sniff out the cup with the treat.
  • The Busy Minute Challenge: Show us how many tricks your dog can complete in one minute for a Busy Bone. It could be a high five, rolling over or even a shake. We want to see what your dog can do in one minute.
  • Beggin’ to Play Fetch Challenge: Show off your pet’s best fetch tricks. Whether it’s a frisbee, playing catch or chasing a tennis ball, show us your dog’s fetch skills.
  • Purina for the Win Course: Create an obstacle course to show off your dogs’ athletic ability and will lead them to sniff out a Beggin’ Flavor Stix at the end. It can be indoors or in your backyard.

“We’re all athletes in this family, and we’re happy to have found activities that allow us to bond and play with our dogs while engaging in a little friendly competition,” said Kyle. “Along with Purina Treats, we’re inviting other dog owners to do the same by joining the Purina for the Win challenges.”
