You wouldn’t think puppies and art would go together but at the Pup Art Group Show the paintings of over 30 artists came together to gain exposure for their artistic creations while promoting the opening of Hairy & Merry Pet Spa and Dog Wash. That is correct-a dog spa and art have something to do with each other. Art can be an augmentation to business advertising as long as it complements the products.
It is important to think in terms of customer demographics. Who might own a dog and what other interests might they have? Dog owners are interested in dog products and would also likely be interest in dog art. Putting the two together draws a greater crowd through the door which can only help the business gain greater exposure.
In this case the Pup Art Group Show offered a nice array of canine paintings mixed among the many products at Hairy & Merry’s Pet Spa and Dog Wash. Apparently, many of the local dog owners were also amateur artists. A few of the works were professional by nature and could have been commercialized. Together they heightened consumer interest.
One of the first things you will notice in the store is that many of the treats are made more for human perception than animal interest. The animal candies looked like live chocolate delicacies that made your mouth water. I was thinking about throwing a sample in my mouth until I saw a patron grab one and offer it to their overly excited pouch.
The opening was a dog lover’s paradise. Pet art, pet treats, play room, socializing with pet owners, higher scale pouch products, and lots of help. The business even hosts pet sitting for those business travelers that need to get out of town for a few days. For the metro San Diego crowd this will soon be one of their favorite canine outlets.
