Subaru has unveiled a sneak peak of the new commercials:

Subaru will also launch a new Facebook application packed with treats for dogs and dog lovers:

  • Dog Matchmaker
    With the help of Grant Weber, every dog can find their perfect Subaru..  Enter the dogs breed, weight, and lifestyle and the Matchmaker will identify a fitting model for the dog.
  • Ask a Dog - Live
    Type in a question and Our Subaru Canine Experts will work hard to dig up the results.
  • Four-Paw Drivers Club
    Let your dog become a four-legged Subaru enthusiast with their own dog driver's license. Upload a photo of your dog to populate a personalized dog driver's license and share with your friends.
  • Put Your Dog in a Subaru
    Every dog has his or her day. Now you can help them get there faster by putting them behind the wheel of a Subaru. Upload a picture of your furry friend, put them in the driver's seat, and see where the road takes them.

The campaign is designed to resonate with Subaru owners and like-minded consumers.  Subaru drivers are two times more likely than the average car owner to have a pet.

Subaru has once again partnered with MapMyFitness to continue the MapMyDOGWALK mobile application.  MapMyDOGWALK provides dog owners with access to an innovative geo-mapping application that allows users to track and store their daily walking routes in an online database.  Users also have access to a searchable database of millions of routes across the globe, fitness calculators, dog event listings, and a dynamic social network of healthy and active individuals and their four-legged friends.

On game day, Feb. 3, Dog Tested fans can interact with the campaign content on Facebook or Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl  Co-Viewing Application.
