The Horse and Hound Boutique: Meatballs

How do you reach dog owners? Through their dogs. How do you reach dogs? Through their nose. Dog-sized outdoor boards was produced. Each one was prepared with meatballs and then placed next to the boutique.

Although there are many ways to attract dogs, this one's among the more interesting ways...

yeah but who's responsible for replacing the meatball once it spoils or is consumed by birds?
also, would be nice to have the actual copy translated from the Swedish.

lol, I like the last photo. The one with the black dog. He looks like he's drooling.

Interesting but I think the way Pedigree executed this idea was much better. They made dog bowls stickers and posters that smelled like dog food so the dog was actually approaching something that made a bit more sense than a photo of a wagging tail.
