Win $350 or $150 Road Trip Cash: Subaru #DogTested Giveaway!

Subaru dogs

We’ve been getting ready for a road trip using all the cool new apps over at the Subaru Facebook page and thought we’d let you in on the FUN! It’s all free and designed especially for dogs because Subaru loves dogs and dogs LOVE Subaru!

So, how do you and your dog get in on the fun? Help your dog plan their dream road trip:

First, check out this video to see how Subaru has set up a very special car dealership just for dogs! It’s super short and very funny!!!

Next, you’ll want to get your dog their own driver’s license using the super easy Facebook app here. Your dog is lucky because unlike at the DMV, you get to choose your favorite photo of them so they’ll have the cutest driver’s license around! Just make sure you don’t put your real address, unless you want us showing up at your house looking for treats…your dog’s driver’s license will appear in the gallery along with Daisy’s and all her pals. Like this…

Now that your pup has their very own driver’s license, they will be ready to hit the road. Treat them to their very own Subaru test drive with the Put Your Dog In A Subaru photo app on Facebook! Just choose the model and color your dog likes best and put them behind the wheel…at least in a photo for now! Here’s Daisy in her dream car…I love the orange color she chose:

Pet Owner or Pet Parent? Fur Kids Are Family, Too!

 places we go with our dog Daisy

People with dogs usually fall into one of two categories: there are those who think of themselves as a “pet owner” and then there are those of us who consider our fur kid as a part of the family. As pet parents, we take Daisy into consideration with just about every decision we make. Where we live, what we do on the weekends, where to go on vacation, and even what car to take when we all go somewhere together.  And we go LOTS of places together!

That’s why I love the new videos Subaru did as part of their “Dog tested. Dog approved.” campaign. They really celebrate and share in the canine-centric view we pet parents have of life with our fur kids.

There’s a new one I especially love called Kids, featuring Grant Weber, celebrity and Subaru Canine Sales Associate. It’s got adorable puppies, so what’s not to love!?! Check it out:

Daisy thought that one was cute but wants you to know there is NO WAY she is riding in a car seat! She’s a bit of a sports fanatic like her papa, and is a fan of dressing up in her football jersey and watching the games or tailgating with pals. If she had her way, every day would be game day and she’d pack up the car full of tailgating necessities just like these dogs!

Daisy thinks those fur kids sure have the right idea! If your dog also likes tailgating and other four-wheeled activities, be sure to stop on over at Subaru’s Facebook page where you get them their own Dog Driver’s License, Visit the Dog Matchmaker, Ask the Expert and more. Daisy and I have been playing around with their cool new apps already and they’re super fun! Next week we’ll show you some photos of Daisy taking a virtual test drive using the Subaru Facebook app so be sure to check back soon!

>Do you consider yourself to be a pet parent or is that just “crazy dog lady talk”? Leave us a comment and let us know! If you also think fur kids are family, then be sure to share this message and super cute video with your friends by using the RT button below!

Experience Puppy Bowl Like Never Before with New Interactive App From Subaru!

Subaru Dog Toby

Are you ready for extra cuteness and fun tomorrow? We’ve been looking forward to The Puppy Bowl for months now! There’s the Puppy Cam, the Kitty Half Time Show and we hear there will be Hedgehog Cheerleaders this year, too! If you follow us on Pinterest, you already know we have a thing for hedgehogs! Cute, right???

Well, just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, the Subaru Dogs are back with EXTRA fun and cuteness! Longtime fans of Puppy Bowl already know how much fun it is interacting with other fellow fanatics on Facebook and Twitter…it’s not just a show, it’s an experience! Subaru is taking that to the next level with their super cool new interactive Puppy Bowl Plus app.

Subaru’s New Interactive Puppy Bowl App

The app is totally free and you can download it now from iTunes here to be prepared ahead of time. Then, when you watch the Puppy Bowl live on TV, Sunday Feb. 3 at 3pm ET on Animal Planet, the app will serve up exclusive content for users to interact and engage with. It actually works live with the TV broadcast (and the re-airing, so check local listings) in a similar way to apps like Shazam and Viggle and we can’t wait to check it out!

Dog tested. Dog approved.

In addition to the new interactive app, be sure to also watch for the Subaru Dogs to make appearances in some brand new commercials airing during Puppy Bowl IX this year! We’ve already checked out a few sneak peeks and want to share our favorite with you. It features the Subaru Dogs in their paw-tastic new ride, packed and ready for a very special tailgate party. You can watch it here!

We hope you’re looking forward to Puppy Bowl IX as much as we are! Join us as we cheer on our favorite puppies, check out the new hedgehog cheerleaders and watch for appearances by the Subaru Dogs in their new TV spots and on the app! Hashtags to watch on Twitter are #SubaruBP and #PuppyBowl so hopefully we’ll connect with you there, too!
