They announced the winner back in late September, and out of 10 Finalists we couldn’t be more proud of Pat McNeely & his beautiful dog, Koda of John’s Creek, Georgia! Pat & Koda’s Dream Dog Park idea was chosen based on creativity, feasibility of bringing the idea to life, and how life is just simply better with his dog! They won a year’s supply of Beneful® dog food, $5,000 cash, and $500,000 towards bringing their park to life in their town!
Here’s what Pat had to say about his Dream Dog Park:
Our Dream Dog Park would be something really special to make it a family destination for dog adventures. Koda would love a park with hardy grass and shade trees with benches. It would have a wading pool, fountain or mister for water fun. A perimeter path of soft rubber mulch for walking, a large open space to run and play catch and a structure with ramps and tunnels would be great. There would be a “people house” with restrooms, water fountain and a water hose for clean ups. Improving our dog park would be a “treat” for all of us.
We think the ‘water hose for clean ups’ is genius and every dog park should have one!
You can go HERE to watch the winning video entry and HERE to see an artist’s rendering of the proposed Dream Dog Park! We can’t wait until the unveiling of the Wagworld Dream Dog Park in the Spring and you bet we’ll be sharing it with you when it’s here!
CONGRATS, Pat & Koda!
