The Purina Pro Club (was that what you were meaning?) is where you save weight circles off the side of the bags and redeem them for checks for $$ off dog food, checks to give your vet, or selected gifts with Purina logo. Purina also donates 1% of your redeemed weight circles to research of the breed of your choice. They also offer free puppy kits, full of lots of good info for new puppy owners. I don't know if this is the program you are asking about, but I think it is.
Yes, that is the one. I belong as well. Each bag is worth a certain number of points per pound. Collect the circles, send them in and they can be redeemed for a multiple number of things. They send you a catalog. I always take the food checks. They send you 10 checks that are worth $7.00 each toward your food purchase. They also will send you checks made out to your vet for you to use on your viit to cut your office costs, as well as clothing and gear, etc. Restaurant gift cert's.
Not sure If I can post the link here to sign up at or not. Once a member you can order the puppy kits. No limit...FREE and free shipping as well, costs nothing.
Tell any other breeders you know about it. If you referr them you can basically get 'rewarded' with a $10 bonus for yourself. Not to mention, it can really add up and help you save on your own food bills and the packs are very nice to give to your puppy families:)
You give such nice puppy packs now, I thought you may be interested. Puppy packs are FREE for registered breeders, word of advice, order early and order enough for about 2 litters worth. I have had them take 9-10 weeks to arrive and I was not happy when I didnt' have them to give out.
I am also a member of the Purina Pro Club. When you're feeding 3 Newfs and pups, those weight circles just pour into that little envelope! Lol! Anyway, Scenic, it would be good for you since you also send your pups with a bag of food they send you a little plastic printed baggie as a take-home bag for the food. They also send (at least for PurinaOne) 2 coupons for FREE 8 lb. bags of puppy food. Each folder also has a coupon for the food you're sending them home on. Inside the folder are little tabs for you to put paperwork, pedigrees, health records, your contact info, etc. They also include a Puppy Care guide and a checklist for the first 48 hours the new pup is home. For free, it's a wealth of info. and really helps with all the paper work & info you're giving the new family and they have a reference at home anytime.
I have some "refer a breeder" cards that I fill out and mail in, if anyone I know asks about the club or is interested. Then, as soon as the person I referred sends in their 1st weight circles, I earn 1000 points for referring them. I, too, like the $70 worth of checks off for food. I love the puppy kits, they are full of great info. I also order free brochures and literature from AKC and put in there, too. AKC gives coloring books, brochures on Summer, Winter care tips, Traveling with your pet Tips, a brochure about getting started in shows and a bookmark on things to check off that you need to buy for a new puppy--and I also enclose NuVet vitamin samples, too. Lots of good stuff and my customers seem to enjoy the kits. I know some people on here don't like Purina food, but I have had very good luck with it and my dogs like it.
