Presented by The American Pet Products Association (APPA) and the Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA), this is the first time the prestigious honor has been given to a dog food product in more than five years.

With 2896 booths, more than 6,000 buyers, 3,000 new products and over four miles of pet products presented at Global Pet Expo 2014 in the Orlando, Florida Orange County Convention Center, the competition was stiff for all new products submitted in the New Product Showcase in their respective categories.

The win for Best Product at Global Pet Expo was announced on NBC’s Today Show by NBC award-winning correspondent Jill Rappaport; who was covering the Expo.

DOG for DOG’s philosophy is to help as many dogs in need as possible. To accomplish that goal, for every bag of DOGSFOOD sold, the company donates one to a dog in need ” “You buy one, we give one.” DOGSFOOD kibble is made in the USA using only high-quality meats, fruits and vegetables and contains no corn, wheat or soy. It comes in three varieties: Lamb and Brown Rice, Pork and Brown Rice, and Grain Free with Salmon and Ocean Fish.

“Winning ‘Best Product’ at the Global Pet Expo further validates the fact that there is a strong need to help dogs in need and that our customers want to be a part of the solution. Our supporters can feel great when they purchase DOGSFOOD because they know that they are providing premium, healthy food for their pets, while they are also helping feed dogs that are in shelters or part of rescue groups,” said Rocky Kanaka, President of DOG for DOG.

“DOGSFOOD is unique in the marketplace because it combines top-quality, all-natural ingredients with our mission of giving to dogs in need.

Their combined efforts in helping dogs receive proper nutrition through the DOG for DOG donation program are part of the overall goal to raise awareness about dogs in need. These are celebrities who don’t take advantage of their notoriety, rather they use their popularity to spread the word about helping our four-legged friends.
