Healthy Active Lifestyle with #NutriencePets

21. August 2014 08:00 by jennifer | 3 Comments

Hi! I'm Matthew, also known as the #BigYellowDog. This is the first blog post I've ever written for my human mom, Jenny.

I was just so excited by my new Nutrience dog food that I wanted to be the one to tell you all about it!

Nutrience believes in healthy active lifestyles for human and pets. And let me tell you, my family lives an active lifestyle, and I'm always tagging along. See, I have a very important job as an Autism Service Dog, so I get to do a lot of fun things!

From swimming in springs (see me in my special vest? I'm so handsome.)

to playing in water slides

to playing fetch with my favorite boy

and of course, carrying around a big stick (you know what they say....bark softly and carry a big stick Wink)

I am always on the go.

Nutrience pet food helps keep me in tip-top shape.

Nutrience pet food is made with North American ingredients and backed by their ‘No Bad Anything’ promise. Every bag they craft represents an unwavering attention to quality and an ongoing commitment to natural, wholesome nutrition.

Just what this Big Yellow Dog deserves.

Since my family is super active, and my mom hates to shop, she orders my Nutrience food directly from Amazon.

It's set up to subscribe and save so I'll never run out, and this enables us to keep playing instead of wasting time in the store! My mom is so smart! Smile

You can learn more about Nutrience on their webpage and connect with them through social media on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.


So tell me fellow dogs with a blog, what's your favorite way to get active??

I've done internships at Mote Marine, The Pier Aquarium, and conducted field work in Isla Holbox Mexico, and Drake Bay, Costa Rica.

I did my first Spartan Race in February, 2014. It was a GREAT event. The distance was perfect for me, and the obstacles were challenging, but not too scary. Though all the burpees I did, now those were scary!!
