Our Top Ten list this week was of commercials that feature dogs. Are you more likely to buy something because a dog is featured in a commercial for the product?
Have you seen the Traveler’s Insurance commercial where the dog tries to put his bone in a safety deposit box at the bank, then can’t sleep because he’s worried about it? How about the one for Denta-Stix that shows the dogs with doggie dentures? These are two of my favorites, which prompted me to do some research on commercials with doggie stars.
According to LePaws, a Hollywood talent agency that represents animal actors, one of every three television commercials features a dog.
I tried to find commercials that weren’t specifically for dog-related products, although the Denta-Stix one was too cute not to include in my top ten.
