It’s simple but the more creative you are the better chance you have of winning!

Submit your story telling how your dog brings more joy to your life each day, and how their love changed your life–in big or small ways–for a chance to win BIG for As Good as Gold. You’ll also have the chance to win a Petco gift card, up to $1,000.

Remember to tell a story rather than simply reciting facts as they happened. Quality storytelling and supporting photos or videos will make your submission stand out from all the others. If you need help with background information on your Golden you can contact us and we can help, if possible.

All story submissions should include a minimum of four photos: one photo of the pet by him/herself, one photo of the pet with his/her family or a family member and two additional photos. The expression ‘a photo is worth a thousand words’ definitely applies during the Holiday Wishes campaign. Great photos can tell a story by themselves, so submit photos that express your story.

Additionally, be sure to use high resolution images. Be sure to submit photos that are clear and of the highest quality possible. In addition, we encourage you to submit up to three additional photos that help tell the story of how your pet impacted your life.

They also encourage the use of video in telling your story.
