I love spoiling my dog Maia. I even go so far as to grab her a pillow and cover her with blankets so she’s nice and comfy when she rests! So when I saw the NexGard® (afoxolaner) “Doggone Funny” program I knew I had to participate!

Show Off Your Funny Dog to Support Canine Companions for Independence

From now until Sept. 30, 2015, dog owners can share the funny things that their dog does and that they do for their dog on Instagram® or Twitter® using the #DoggoneContest hashtag or watch the NexGard “Doggone Funny” video. For every social action taken, Merial, the maker of NexGard, will sponsor $1, up to $100,000, to help place more Canine Companions for Independence® assistance dogs with deserving individuals in need. Visit www.doggonecontest.com to learn more about the program. The top three #DoggoneContest social media posts from dog owners will receive $5,000 from Merial, the maker of NexGard.
