(NewsUSA) – The American Kennel Club® (AKC), the governing body of dog sports in the United States, is teaming up with the dog supplement brand YuMOVE® to educate pet owners about helping their dogs live their most active life, for life.YuMOVE is now the official dog joint sponsor of the AKC. The partnership reflects the importance of maintaining and improving joint health for dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds at every stage of life.Whether your dog jumps across the agility course or just jumps off the couch for daily walks, joint and hip care are important to keeping your furry friend healthy and active.YuMOVE has been improving the health of dogs for 15 years, since it made its debut at an agility show in the United Kingdom, and has become the U.K.’s no. 1 dog joint supplement. The chewable tablet is made with natural ingredients, and includes the unique ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussels — a super-concentrated source of high quality, joint-soothing Omega-3s, sustainably sourced from local farmers in New Zealand. Dogs love the taste, but YuMOVE backs it up with efficacy. It is scientifically proven to work within six weeks and is the only dog hip and joint supplement backed by two canine clinical studies.*"The health and well-being of dogs is a priority for the AKC, and we know that responsible owners want their dogs to live long, healthy lives," says 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 introduces its newest dog joint supplement into the U.S. market. YuMOVE Plus+ Hip & Joint Supplement provides extra high-strength joint support, and contains 20% 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. We want dogs globally to live their most active life, for life," says Fiona Hope, CEO of Lintbells — home of YuMOVE."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 to ensure that 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."To help dog owners see the joint difference in their dogs, YuMOVE is offering 30% off on any YuMOVE hip & joint supplements by using the one-time code "DogAthlete30" at checkout.
