Nat Geo WILD’ Barkfest Weekend #NatGeoWILD

To help me get ready for Nat Geo WILD’s inaugural BARKFEST, a full weekend (airing May 15-17) of programming that celebrates man’s best friend, I received a fun May package filled with dog worthy goodies.

Note: I'm part of Nat Geo WILD's "Bloggers Gone Wild" program and will share monthly information and news. However any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

My Barkfest pack, included DVD copies of "World's Greatest Dogs," "Cesar 911 Season 2 Finale episode" and "Super Underdogs," along with a dog collar and wood picture frame.

The first DVD my family watched was "World's Greatest Dogs," which highlights included a bionic dog and a dog with the world record in scootering.

It was amazing to learn how these dogs lives started and how they now live their lives with excitement. I was really touched by their personal stores and the love and dedication of their owners.

But that's just one of the shows you'll enjoy this weekend. The BARKFEST programming line up includes:
