Ad of the Day | Skoda and Rosapark Present Doug The Dog, Man's (Biggest) Best Friend

Mar. 13, 2019

Following "Ugly in the 90s", "Station with a View" and "Mission to Mars", SKODA and its agency Rosapark are teaming up again for a big and surprising campaign.

With the recent releases of its SUVs SKODA KODIAQ, SKODA KAROQ and the 2019 innovations SKODA SCALA and SKODA KAMIQ featuring powerful designs and fluid, modern lines, SKODA has transformed itself and has been increasingly attracting consumers. This metamorphosis has enabled the brand to increase its sales in France by 17.5% in 2018. In addition to updated models, SKODA has designed a range of accessories that make life easier for its users, including a dog seat belt. Yes, you read that right, a dog seat belt.

Why, you might ask? Well, once you hear that an unrestrained dog can become a one-ton projectile in an accident at only 50km/h, you’ve got your answer. Add to that the fact that 98% of dog owners admit to not tying up their pet in the car.

Doug is like your dog. He’s cute, he’s endearing, he’s just ten times bigger and weighs one ton...

Sacha Lacroix, Managing Director of  Rosapark, said:

"This communication demonstrates, once again, ŠKODA's dynamism and its ability to surprise, not to go where you’d expect. A DNA that can be found both in its new models and in its innovations."


“Doug the Dog” launches online March 13th along with a Twitter campaign. Tweeters can post pictures of their dog using the hashtag #DougTheDog to see what their dog looked if it weighed… a whole ton. The campaign will also be broadcast on Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and LinkedIn.
