There will be many automakers spending millions upon millions of dollars advertising in the Super Bowl (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/super+bowl/) next weekend, but Subaru (http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/) will not be one of them. Instead, the automaker will be catering toward animal - specifically dog - lovers with a set of commercials for the 2014 Subaru Forester (http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/forester/)that will appear during Puppy Bowl IX on Animal Planet.

The ads all build on Subaru's reputation of being a dog-friendly brand, and its latest "Dog Tested. Dog Approved" campaign will feature four 20-second spots. Of the four, "Tailgate" and "On The Lot" are definitely the most entertaining, while "Let's Talk Financing" and, especially, "Lint Roller" are snoozers.

Scroll down (http://www.thesubaruforum.com/2013/01/28/subaru-lifts-leg-at-super-bowl-goes-with-puppy-bowl-ads-instead/#continued) to watch all four spots, and there's also a press release listing other initiatives Subaru is planning to attract dog lovers.
