PetsMove_PawWhat are PetsMove PAWS and what are they good for?

Many of you might be wondering what is the significance of the paws that you can collect when logging your pet’s activity on your diary page.  We have complied a list of FAQs to answer your questions.

Q: What is a PetsMove Paw?

A: We have created the “paw” to represent the physical effort needed for the different activities that your pet might do each day.

Q: How do I earn paws?

A: Paws are earned when you submit your pet’s activity on the diary page.

Q: How many paws do I earn?

A: The number of paws earned depends on the activity type and duration.  A simple rule of thumb is that the higher the activity intensity and the longer the duration, the more paws you can earn.

Q: What are the benefits of collecting paws?

A: There are many benefits of collecting paws including:

  • You can show up on our site “leaderboard” which shows a list of our most active pets.
  • The more paws you collect, the more active your pet is, which means that they will be better able to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.  If you are active with your pet, you will also achieve this benefit!
  • We will be using paws to determine prize allocations.  We will be awarding prizes throughout the year and in many cases, having more paws will increase your chances of winning.  Be honest when entering your dog’s activities and don’t ‘exaggerate!  Otherwise you will not receive the most important benefit of all which is better health for you and your pet!

Q: Can you tell me more about the prizes and the criteria to win them?

A: Yes we will be making announcements in the future about our prizes and award programs.  Check back daily to enter in your pet’s activity and while you are at it, you will be able to read our prize announcements!
