Your fur baby at home could be the next VIRAL way to market your salon and services on social media. Try adding a #salondog in one of your salon photos (with you or with your clients) to get more ♥️'s and comments.

Whether it’s including service dogs, your client’s precious pups or your employee’s wonderful woofers, dog-friendly salons are more common than ever. Salons around the nation are posting their favorite Instagram-worthy moments with man’s best friend every day, especially to the #salondog hashtag, which has close to 17K posts already.

The posts below are cute and creative ways to show off your salon, services...and your #salondog. See how these stylists and owners included their own #salondogs into their salon environments  whether they're simply lounging on a salon chair; next to a cut and color; or by a retail area — there's all kind of ideas.

Here are some creative ways your cute canine can also be your salon's best marketing tool and official #salonmascot!
