Want to visit Israel but can’t leave your dog at home? There’s a trip for you.
Vibe Israel, a non-profit that introduces bloggers and media personalities to Israel, has invited dogs and their owners to apply to win a Doggy Vacay, a dog plus one trip to Israel for four nights and five days in October.
Anyone can apply to win the Dog Plus One contest, which will include time touring and relaxing in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, considered Israel’s dog capital with the most dogs per capita.
The contest is open to any dog from the US that weighs under 20 pounds but has a heavy social media presence. an application form is available at the Doggy Vacay website.
The Doggy Vacay campaign launched August 23 and will be open until mid-September, according to Vibe.
The unique dog campaign is an effort to access millennials, the twentysomethings who don’t pay much attention to Israel, or don’t agree with its policies, said Joanna Landau, the founder and CEO of Vibe Israel.
“We want millennials around the world to discover Israel from a different angle and be drawn to its offering,” she said. “The more young people that see Israel through a wider lens, the more successful we’ll be in connecting them positively with Israel and building bridges with them.”
