retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Washington Post reports that “Nestle, one of the world’s largest makers of pet food, has created a 23-second television ad that has high-pitched whistles that are meant to be heard only by — you guessed it — dogs.”

“We wanted to create a TV commercial that our four-legged friends can enjoy . . . but also allow the owner and dog to experience it together,” says Nestle spokesperson Anna Rabanus.
