Purina Pro Plan Brings Back $1 Million Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Bracket Challenge
When it comes to filling out a winning bracket, what’s your strategy? Do you study team history and statistics, or are you a fan of the upset? Back by popular demand, the Purina Pro Plan $1 Million Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Bracket Challenge rallies fans to apply their best bracket strategies to correctly predict the seven Westminster group winners and the top prize, Best in Show, for a chance to win $1 million.
Dog lovers and sporting enthusiasts alike are invited to put their skills to the test when more than 2,800 elite dogs from across the country compete for top honors on Monday, Feb. 13, and Tuesday, Feb. 14, at the 141st Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, presented by Purina Pro Plan, a brand of Nestlé Purina PetCare Co. in St. Louis.
To play, fans can visit dogshowbracket.com and choose one winner from the Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting, Herding, Sporting, Working and Terrier groups and, from those winners, one overall breed they believe will win Best in Show. After completing the bracket, entrants can tune in to the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Fox Sports 1 (FS1) on Feb. 13 and Feb. 14 at 8 p.m. EST to follow their bracket in real time. If their selections match the actual winners, they could win $1 million, with the prize being split evenly among all verified winners.
“We’re excited to give dog lovers another chance to get in on the Westminster action as they select and cheer on their favorite breeds,” said Christi Maginn, brand director for Purina Pro Plan. “No matter which dog comes out on top in the game of ‘barketology,’ Purina Pro Plan believes that any dog can be a champion—whether they’re in the ring or curled up next to you at home.”
