A Dog's Approval Could Lead To More Sales

77% of dog owners buy a car which suits the dog

(PRWEB UK) 31 December 2013

Car dealers often forget a key influence in a sale: the family dog.

In the WeLoveAnyCar.com Dog Owners Survey, 77% of car owners with dogs said their choice of car was dependent on the best fit for their dog.

With dog ownership on the rise, if a car doesn't meet the mutt's approval it will stay on the forecourt. Dealers are advised to cater for family dog as well as the kids.
