I recently attended the 3rd annual IAMS Behind the Paw event in Ohio on behalf of MomStart. The Behind the Paw event is meant to give bloggers a look at the inner workings of IAMS and Eukanuba.
In the spirit of disclosure I would like to note that I fed my dogs IAMS from puppyhood to adult hood. There were a few food trials I did with my pup for my blog that lasted from 3-6 months, but for the majority of their lives they were fed the mini kibble IAMS. Why? Because IAMS was a dog store brand I could find in my grocery store and compared to the other foods on the shelves at the time, it was a superior product.
My oldest dog was diagnosed with bladder cancer earlier this year and I switched all three of my pups to an organic food and while I still think IAMS is superior to many other foods in the supermarket, there are better choices for my pups that fit their current needs.
So, back to the trip. The first evening was held at the Dorothy Lane Market Cooking School where we were divided into teams and paired with a DLM teacher. Each team was given a course and at the end a “celebrity” judge determined the winners. It was a fabulous way to meet each other, have some fun, and enjoy some great food. I’ve already made a few of the dishes here at home, they were that fabulous.
