A Happy Travel Tail and Giveaway! #DogTested

With a young pup in the family,  I find we're doing an awful lot of driving -- to training classes and fun outings like dog hikes and dog shows, and simply to run errands so that Rocco will be a fearless traveler.  So with all those miles we're racking up, I thought it would be fun to check out the Subaru Dog Matchmaker on the Subaru Dog Tested Facebook app.

Turns out a bone-chewing, squirrel-chasing young Havanese is best suited for a Subaru Impreza.  And with all the miles we're covering, we are super impressed with the 36 MPG highway rating. That IS something to wag about! 

Check out the app yourself, and while you are there you can make a Canine Driver's License, like this one! Just a note... you'll want to use an imaginary address since your pup's license will be visible on the site. 

As part of the Subaru Dog Tested Facebook app, you can also "Put Your Dog in a Subaru" and "Ask an Expert". It's all in good fun, just like the Subaru Dog Tested commercials.

By the way, did you know that Subaru owners are two times more likely than the average car owner to have a pet? We imagine it must be because of its award-winning safety features, generous cargo room and the incredible mileage you'll get on those numerous dog outings. Drive two hours to an agility trial?  No problem when you get 36 mpg!

More fun stuff!

Kick off your weekend with even more fun and a chance to win some awesome prizes!

Enter via Rafflecopter below and you might walk away with a nice bonus to buy plenty of extra treats for you AND your pup! One first-place prize winner will receive a $350 Visa gift card and one second-place prize winner will receive a $150 Visa gift card.

  4. I love those Subaru driver's licenses!

  5. Yes an Impreza would be a nice car for you - just make sure you get it with a hood scoop! :) It will go faster, and from all of the zooming picture I have seen I know Rocco would appreciate it :)

  6. I already have my license but we can never get enough of Subaru advertising! We just love it!

  7. We made a driver's license for Shiner - very cute!

  8. I test drove a used Subaru during my recent car search, and it was perfect in every way except the gas mileage...I think its just the new Subarus that get 36mpg. Awesome that they are going in that direction. Dog lovers DO seem to love Subarus!

  9. I just love anonymous spam commenters. :)
