Best Aussie TV Commercials featuring dogs!

Toyota TV Commercial
If you ever saw the Australian Toyota dog TV Commercials you’ll never forget it! This is definitely one of my favorite TV Ads. It’s an oldie but a goodie. Keep your eye out for the cute dog featuring in this TV Commercial. I think there was also a New Zealand version released, same visuals only with a funnier accent.

Toyota did a few TV ads with dogs in the ‘o bugger’ series. The blue healer in the tele commercial below I think pulled the short straw on what part she got to play. A good laugh none the less!

If you know of any other aussie TV commercials let us know, so we can pass onto our friends.

Superfetch Dog TV Show dog training

Superfetch dog tv shows features on the Bio Channel. It’s a 30min tv show that visits dog lovers in there home or working dogs to feature their dog training escapades and of course it’s about dogs in general. With the help of pet trainer Zak George dog owners learn the tricks of the dog training trade. Zak has the most beautiful dog training partner – Venus who assist with dog training stages. Starting with simple tasks like fetching the tennis ball and building up to focusing on finding the TV remote! How handy would that be? Although Leroy has a tendency to drool too much, and Maddie would most likely want me to start throwing it for her. Of course we have noticed that a lot of the dogs on Superfetch would look so much funkier with a designer dog collar or Leroy Madison designer dog lead.

If you are one of those people that have a gorgeous dog to help you pick up possible dates at the park, then Zak & Venus will take you paw by paw through some sneaky ‘i’m so cute moves’ up to having your dog jump up on your back & shoulders and pose there! OK, so sometimes the show is more focused on dog tricks than dog training and can get a bit silly, but it is fun to watch dog owners embarrass themselves on national tv. Overall Superfetch is a lighthearted and fun dog training TV show. However for the more serious enthusiast looking for some amazing breakthroughs with aggressive dogs, or anxious dogs we still highly recommend Cesar Milan the one and only great Dog Whisperer.

Superfetch features on the BIO channel on Saturdays afternoon, approximately 5.30 in the afternoon. It was originally produced by Animal Planet so will repeats can sometimes be found there. At this stage it’s unknown whether more seasons of this lighthearted dog training tv show will be made. We’ll keep an eye out and let you know if it’s being released again soon.

2012 Super Bowl Dog TV Commercials

When the USA Superbowl TV commercials are following a consistent theme you know that theme is a hit topic amongst the public. This year dogs have featured among quite a number of Superbowl TV commercials. Why? Well, because the love of dogs as part of the household family has really solidified over the last few years. One reason for the popularity is National Geographic TV series featuring Cesar Milan in the Dog Whisperer. It is also because we are becoming more conscious of the overall well being of pets in society through activism and magazine new reports.

Trends of dog popularity growth over the last decade have also vastly changed. The USA dominates with the highest number of dogs in a household with Australia coming in a close second and England third. Of course us Australians love our dogs, our working dogs, our foo foo dogs, our back yard dogs, and even the dogs the lie on the lounge 😉

Below are some of our favourite 2012 NFL Superbowl TV Commercials featuring dogs. enjoy!

Suburu Vehicles:

I’m sure Leroy would love one of these but there’s no one I’m letting him drive. Madison, being a bush bred Kelpie would very much like a ute or something a little less city.

Volskwagon The Dog Strikes Back – a two part commercial. The teaser first below is a chorus of dog barking. Someone has a funny sense of humour:

The second, well hopefully it inspires your dog to get fit.

Dorito’s Dog Park is a bit kooky but entertaining none the less.

Sketches sneakers show how fast a pumped up french bulldog can goooo

Suzuki even has one this year featuring dogs
