This kennel is filled with adorable campaigns that brought humans’ best friends into play, making companionship synonymous with their proposition
Protecting us, showering us with drooling love, always being by our side, changing the melancholic times, till nourishing the mental health of healthcare workers during this pandemic, dogs have unfailingly been humans’ best friends in every sense. Brand’s friendship oriented works featuring humans & dog campaigns have reflected that over the years.
From the Greek & Hindu mythologies of ‘Argos & Odysseus’ and ‘Yudhishthira’ till several real-life & real-time examples, this phrase has stuck with humanity (like dogs) for ever. The universal insight has been brought into play by several global and regional brands too.

The campaign is written by Leandro Custo, and directed by Rodrigo Garcia Saiz.
