Dog lover, executive chef/co-owner of Chicago's Table fifty-two, and Oprah’s own personal chef of ten years, Chef Art Smith is a powerful and influential voice suggesting dog owners take a closer look at what they are feeding their four legged family members. Art is working with Iams So Good! to promote the "What's really in your bowl?" campaign which encourages dog owners to select wholesome and additive free dog food.
When Iams So Good! hit the shelves, local celebrity chef Art Smith stepped up to promote the product and healthy dog food cause. "Our dogs count on us to make smart choices for them throughout their life, and nutrition is a big part of that. Because of the IAMS commitment to happy, health pets, it was natural for me to pick IAMS So Good!"
Art has three dogs and a house full of cats. The dogs: Link and Tron are brothers and they’re 8-year-old American Staffordshire Terriers, Cochon is the youngest and he’s a 7-year-old brindle French bulldog. According to Art, "Before switching, we were feeding them another food brand. Like many pet parents, I had no idea that the food I was feeding my dogs had sugars, dyes and artificial preservatives." Since switching dog food, Art has noticed an improvement in his dogs' weight, coat appearance, and energy levels (they also seem to really like actually eating the food.)
On making the switch for his dogs' diets, Art states, "As a chef, I use real ingredients so it’s important to me to feed my dogs a diet with wholesome nutrition without artificial ingredients. Feeding them IAMS So Good! was a smart and easy choice for me because I don't want them eating food that has added sugars, dyes or artificial preservatives. One simple and important way to show our love is to provide them with the best nutrition possible and that's why I picked IAMS So Good!"
