Press release: The American Kennel Club
The American Kennel Club (AKC), the governing body of dog sports in the United States, and leading advocate for dogs, recently announced YuMOVE as the official dog joint supplement sponsor of the AKC. The brands are teaming up to educate and help U.S. dog owners prevent, maintain and improve their dogs’ joint health and mobility, at every age.
The relationship also includes sponsorship of televised AKC agility events, the AKC World Agility team and AKC Meet the Breeds events.
From attending its first agility show over 15 years ago, to becoming the U.K.’s number one dog joint supplement, YuMOVE is already helping more than 1.7 million dogs a year globally by providing the highest quality joint supplement that is scientifically proven to work in six weeks. Its products use natural ingredients and are the only hip and joint supplement powered by unique ActivEase Green Lipped Mussels – a super-concentrated source of high quality, joint-soothing Omega-3, sustainably sourced from local farmers and only available from the crystal-clear waters of New Zealand.
“The health and well-being of dogs is a key priority for the AKC, as well as responsible dog owners who only want the best for their dogs,” said Dennis B. Sprung, president and CEO of the AKC. “We are thrilled to work with YuMOVE and to highlight the commitment dog owners have to the wellness and joint health of both canine athletes, and dogs everywhere.”
This April, YuMOVE will introduce its newest dog joint supplement into the U.S. market. YuMOVE Plus+ Hip & Joint Supplement, available exclusively online, provides extra high-strength joint support, and contains 20 percent more ActivEase Green Lipped Mussels than the original YuMOVE chewable tablets for adult dogs.
“We’re delighted to work with the American Kennel Club, becoming their official dog joint supplement sponsor,” said Fiona Hope, CEO of Lintbells – Home of YuMOVE. “It was 15 years ago that we launched the business in the United Kingdom at a local dog conformation show. Since then, we have played an active role in dog conformation, flyball and agility communities, and have worked closely with them over this time to develop and produce new products exclusively to support these active dogs.”
“Our mission is clear. We want dogs globally to live their most active life, for life,” continued Hope. “That’s why we’re excited to launch YuMOVE Plus+ in the U.S. and to become the official dog joint supplement sponsor of the AKC. This will help ensure dogs throughout their canine action sport careers, as well as dogs everywhere, have access to a joint supplement that truly makes a difference to their performance and recovery.”
