Calling All Snowboarding Bulldogs!

Polka Dot Pup came across a pet-friendly casting call that we had to share with our readers. Bulldog owners get ready, your pup could appear in this years Rose Parade! Oh, but did we mention they need to know how to snowboard??

The most unique "cattle call" in years takes place 10:30 AM on Friday, November 6th at Natural Balance Pet Foods headquarters in Pacoima, CA, as the West Coast's largest open call for bulldogs will take place. The dogs will get to test their snowboarding skills, and the winners will then go into extensive training in order to snowboard on the world's longest float at this year’s Tournament of Roses® Parade.

The two winning bulldogs will get to show off their skills along with Tillman, the “World’s Fastest Skateboarding Dog” according to The Guinness Book of World Records, as he, his sidekicks Rose, Lyle and two fellow bulldogs snowboard on the world’s longest float at the Tournament of Roses Parade. The 112 foot float will be covered in snow and offer a giant ramp for Tillman and his bulldog friends to snowboard on.

Your favorite talented bulldog can now audition to snowboard down the Natural Balance® Pet Food Float with Tillman and friends on New Year’s Day in the 121st Rose Parade®.

The casting call will be at 10:30 A.M on November 6th. The location is at Natural Balance at: 12924 Pierce Street, Pacoima, CA 91331

Thank you so much for this great article. I really enjoyed reading it.
One thing a lot of people don't understand about training dogs with dog crates is you are using the dogs natural instincts in your favor and if you do it right your dog will be a much happier dog indeed,
