Dogside is a new brand founded by two young entrepreneurs based in London who noticed there wasn’t a contemporary dog brand on the market for the modern urban dog and its owner. 2. It is launched on to the market after extensive research into the changing attitudes towards dog ownership and dog behaviour in the UK. 3. Dogside is the first brand made exclusively for urban dogs and is based on a view of life through the dog’s eyes – what they see, hear, smell and think. A brand which is always on the dog’s side. 4. Dogside is so much more than canine products – it is essentially a portal known as Dogside.com which combines an interactive mixture of entertainment; community initiatives; and an online shop. Content on the website is currently focused on London however there are plans to expand this to other UK cities in the future. Highlights of the website include: a. Google Maps showing favoured London walk routes with Dogside approved businesses flagged along the way. To become part of the Dogside approved scheme, businesses such as pubs and restaurants must show they are dog friendly by providing relevant facilities. The dog owner can then plan their walk route based on these credentials b. A selection of videos featuring some of the most wild and wonderful aspects of urban dog life from showcases of London’s most fascinating dogs and their owners to dog-cam specials capturing a dogs view of the city. c. An irreverent mix of daily news and blogs keeping urban dog owners in touch with current topics and each other 5. Although the public launch of Dogside.com is on the 1st November 2007 there is media access to the testing site which is password protected prior to this date, so please contact us for your unique password and user name. 6. Ambient marketing devices will be used for the first phase of the launch encouraging interaction with dogs across London. Firstly Dogside will be unleashing thousands of branded tennis balls in parks around the capital and as they are infused with a doggy attracting scent it won’t be hard for them to be sniffed out and played with. 7. Dogside products can be delivered anywhere in the UK.
