ADDITIONAL: This year, Purina® Dog Chow® Brand Dog Food dared dog owners to give their better tasting than ever dog food formula a try. In return, the brand asked consumers to dare them back. After thousands of creative submissions, three Grand Prize dares were chosen to be executed. Aside from having their dare completed, Grand Prize winners receive $5,000, a year’s supply of Purina® Dog Chow® Brand Dog Food and a two-year supply of Purina® Dog Chow® Brand Dog Food for one dog donated to a local animal shelter in their community.
