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.

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!
