Beneful Leads the Way in Creating Dream Dog Parks All Over the Country
Beneful is on a quest to add and update dog parks all over the country that truly meet the needs and desires of our 21st Century dogs, who deserve safe places to romp unleashed. In this special Oh Behave episode, host Arden Moore finds out the national perspective of the campaign from Lorie Westhoff, Beneful’s Public Relations Manager, and the local impact of working with Beneful with Sarah Gartland, a member of the Frenchtown Dog Park Association in St. Louis. Arden, The Pet Health and Safety Expert, also shares some savvy dog safety tips. Tune in today!
Lorie Westhoff is a pet lover, mom of (soon to be) two and public relations manager for Purina’s Beneful dog food brand. Since joining the Beneful team in 2014, Westhoff has become a passionate advocate of dog parks while leading the brand’s Beneful Dream Dog Park program. When she isn’t helping to build and improve dog parks across the country, she enjoys spending time with her family, eating chips and salsa and hatching plans for DIY projects around her house that should only take a few weeks, but end up taking months to complete.
Sarah Gartland was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and graduated from Southeast Missouri State University in 2009. Shortly after graduating she started working at Thomson Reuters where she currently works in Business Development. Sarah moved to the Soulard neighborhood in St. Louis in 2011 where she found the Frenchtown Dog Park and became involved with the organization serving as the Secretary for the Board of Directors. Sarah currently lives in St. Louis with her husband and their two chocolate Labradors, Max and Tucker. She spends her free time traveling, hanging out at the dog park, going to St. Louis Cardinals games, and fostering dogs for a local rescue group in St. Louis.
