Pampered Burg Rock Star Dogs, Part II: Plush Toy Edition

Valencia Walk

We caught the Dog Addiction fliers up all over Williamsburg on Sunday and then checked out the rock and roll dog stuff. We didn't see any of the stuffed dogs they'd left out around the neighborhood, though, and the photo above might explain why. Here's what a reader writes:
this past saturday, dog addiction took an interesting approach to street advertising. hey tied small plush dogs to benches and trees (you know spots where people normally tied their dogs to get coffee or whatever) with red ribbon and a promotional postcard. it was quite cute but they didn't last long. here's VALENCIA trying to take one on a walk with her.
We can't say we noticed any survivors even 24 hours later.

This Dog Addiction place says in their manifesto that they "encourage pack behavior". I see this as a huge problem. And do dogs really need and want rock music 24/7? With their hearing? This place sounds like trouble.

Actually, they don't play rock and roll 24/7 -- all sorts of music is played, from motown to classical to disco, etc. Can't see the problem here... In fact, my dog has responded really well to it!

Actually, you can't really encourage pack behavior, it kinda just happens on its own. The dogs go back to their instincts... anyway I think you should read it again it says it "INFLUENCES pack behavior with music". My dog had their test there today, cool spot, people actually talk to you about your dog and concerns you might have, and they had Frank Sinatra on, can't argue with that.
