Hi Pet People,
Exciting news! Dr. Marty Becker or aka “America’s Veterinarian” on national shows like “The Dr. Oz Show” or “Good Morning America” is hitting the road and giving pet lovers a chance to win B-I-G for their favorite shelter. The Big Bus tour is in conjunction with his new book launch, “Your Dog: The Owner’s Manual.”
The Big Bus tour includes book signings at PETCO stores across the country. The new book is already getting big praise from top dogs in the pet world including Temple Grandin (award-winning author), Jack Hanna (host of Into the Wild), Tamar Geller (Founder of Operation Heroes & Hounds), Karen Pryor, (CEO KPCT/clickertraining.com), Betsy Banks Saul (Petfinder.com) and the infamous Betty White. Dr. Becker’s “Your Dog: The Owner’s Manual” features critical topics for anyone thinking of getting a dog or even a seasoned dog owner can learn some new tricks and tips. Hot topics of the book includes pet obesity and how to use food puzzles to prevent weight gain, solving your pet’s most annoying problems and how to save money on medications.
I personally can’t wait to get my “paws” on this book. Many of these things topics Dr. Becker discusses will help to educate not only dog owners but the public and hopefully keep dogs happily in their homes and out of shelters.
As a big supporter and volunteer of animal rescue, Dr. Becker’s tour includes a give back portion to animal welfare groups. The contest allows you to nominate your favorite 501(c)3* shelter or rescue group to win thousands of dollars worth of much-needed pet products and vet supplies. To nominate your favorite shelter or rescue group, just post their name on Dr. Becker’s Face Book page at http://www.facebook.com/DrMartyBecker. Nominations are due by May 15!
