“Have you met the Dulux Dog?”. This is the question we get asked the most working at Dulux, and the answer is, of course we have!
And because it’s a big birthday, we wanted to share the story of the Dulux dog with our lovely listeners. Here are a few paw-some facts that feature in the episode:
The first time the world was introduced to the Dulux dog was in 1961, when the director’s Old English Sheepdog, Dash, crashed one of the Dulux adverts. The camera and cast loved Dash so much that he made it into the ad.
All the Dulux dogs come from the same lineage. Since Dash, there’s been Digby, perhaps the most famous Dulux dog who appeared in a Hollywood film. Between 1995-2002, there was a dog called Mash. It was Willow who had fun getting muddy in the Dulux Easycare campaign. And most recently, two Old English Sheepdogs, Madison and Olivia, appeared in the Dulux advert.
