Mumbai: Good dogs can make bad decisions. With this thought in mind, Future Generali India Insurance (FGII) has launched a digital campaign called ‘Oh My Dog!’ to create awareness around the importance of purchasing dog health insurance cover towards protecting our furry friends.
With FG Dog Health Cover, dog parents will be able to choose their veterinarian, budget their pet care costs, and avoid dipping into their emergency funds all the while giving their dogs the care that they deserve, according to the brand.
The 360-degree digital campaign, conceptualised by Mullen Lintas, aims to strike a chord with dog lovers by bringing out quirky, yet relatable moments that they might have witnessed as a dog parent. The ad film showcases how dogs can often go barking up the wrong tree or hurt themselves frolicking in the mess. Which is why they need to be protected just like one would protect their families against uncertainties.
“Dog insurance is a first mover advantage in India for Future Generali India Insurance. We have a lot more dog parents, which means more pet stores and pet products around us today and it’s a fresh category for mass media that is catering to this spike, and as an insight for the offering, it's something that works across borders,” noted Mullen Lintas chief creative officer Garima Khandelwal.
On the launch of the campaign, Future Generali India Insurance chief marketing officer Ruchika Malhan Varma shared, “As a brand that is focused on having a pulse on its customers evolving needs and providing innovative solutions across their life cycle, we realised the place a dog holds in a household today – that of a family member. This meant bringing forth an unfelt need – just as one would protect a loved one with health insurance, a pet parent can also consider purchasing a dog health insurance cover for safeguarding their four-legged doggie family.”
“However, here is the twist. Insurance is a serious matter while we associate dogs with mischief and play. Hence, to drive home the importance of dog health insurance cover we decided to launch a playful digital campaign that showcases the mischiefs that dogs get into while also being value accretive,” she added.
To drive home the point, FGII is kicking up a storm on both Twitter and Instagram. For its Twitter campaign it has roped in celebrities who are known for their affection towards their furry friends. On Instagram, the company is engaging followers with a filter-based idea to capture the funny thoughts of their dogs in a thought bubble.
