Watch the Hero Litter Pupppycam Live!

Are you an extreme puppy watcher? Or maybe you’re just a casual pup spectator? Either way, we all love the Eukanuba-sponsored puppycam and watching puppies grow, play and learn LIVE.

Gather together your chapter or volunteer group to host your own puppycam viewing party for the newest Canine Companions litter. The more the merrier! Hold a pup-themed party and snap a photo of you and your partygoers. This will be the most fun selfie you’ll take!

Then post your photo to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #EukanubaPuppyCam and #HeroLitter! Eukanuba will donate a whole pallet of Eukanuba dog biscuits to the winning region's training center whose photo had the best response (ie. retweets and likes).
