What’s cute, cuddly and ready to deliver your MOO order? It’s Pug Post!
Yes – from tomorrow you’ll be able to select the option to have your MOO order delivered by one of our furry canine friends.
We’ve never been ones to let the tide of change leave us behind, so when Amazon announced they’d been testing delivery by drones, we decided to re-think our delivery options too.
Our event pick-up service and MOO Shop have helped make delivery a little more convenient and personal. But, we wanted to take it even further, and give our customers a real ‘Yay!’ feeling when they received their order from MOO.
We knew drones were out – we like to keep things human here at MOO (plus we’re not the copying types!). We considered many options, but what we really wanted to do was add a little warmth to our delivery service and give people a reason to smile.
It turned out the ‘human’ part wasn’t the most important bit. In fact, when we thought about it some more, we realised that nothing put a smile on our faces quite like the dog visitors we get at MOO HQ. And so, the idea behind Canine Couriers was born – an alternative to conventional postal methods with a MOO twist.
“It was the perfect take on the ‘drone’ idea,” says COO John Kennedy, the man responsible for getting your orders to you on time, and in one piece. “It lets our customers share the MOO experience and it’s great for the dogs too – they get lots of exercise, attention and treats.”
Our first version – Pug Post – has been in Beta testing for the past few months, and it was office-regular Bowie (we’re sure you recognise him) who volunteered to give it the first try. So far we’ve rolled out to our Boston, Providence and London offices – so if you’re in a delivery area, get your orders ready!
As of tomorrow you’ll be able to select ‘Pug Post’ as a delivery option at checkout for any orders including any Luxe products. All deliveries will be accompanied by a fully trained walker, but if you do select a Canine Courier, please be ready to tip your delivery puppy – otherwise you might not get your package back very easily! We’ve found meat-based treats are the most positively received.
We’re hoping to roll this out further if demand permits. So we’d love to hear if you’ve got a dog you think would love the job! Give us 10 words on why you think they’d be a great fit to MOO and we’ll be in touch soon with an official entry form.
What a great idea! Have you given thought to Dachshund Delivery for shorter routes?
I have the cutest black pug named Bogie and we live in downtown Boston. He loves people, attention, and will do pretty much anything for treats! Let me know if you need a Boston Pug Poster
“Hound Bound” for all kinds of delivery pups.
Very neat idea Moo.
What a clever idea. I had a fawn pug who lived to be 16 years old and she was awesome. She would have made a great delivery girl for you. Good luck with your pug porters:)
There are no words for how much I love this
I have a Portuguese Water Dog that would like to earn some extra cash in the future. Where does he apply?
Ha! This is excellent!
Would you consider Canada Geese for cross-border delivery?
I have two fawn pugs, Percy and Hugo, currently both unemployed, who would love to deliver throughout Essex, UK. Hugo is small, nimble and quick so ideal for those express deliveries in hard to reach places while Percy is of a more stocky build so great for carrying a few thousand business cards on a 2-3 day service. I feel it’s time they contributed to the household so I hope you will consider this application.
I agree that a company called Moo should really use cows to deliver. Dogs don’t moo!
This is awesome!!
Oh what a TERRIFIC idea! I’d love to be able to get a ‘Pug Post’ or perhaps ‘Furbaby Fulfillment’! I don’t have a furbaby in residence right now, but perhaps in the future! Very cool idea – hoping to see you expand to Connecticut soon, and eventually Georgia (where I’ll be moving in several years, but not closing my business, so I’ll still need cards!). LOVE THIS!
I noticed the cost is about double but I do think it is a great idea. Perhaps some of the extra revenue generated by PUG POST could be donated to Animal Rescue Shelters or organizations that support the Ethical Treatment of Animals. As animal lover and owner of a beautiful four legged companion I would gladly have my products shipped PUG POST if it supported such causes.
We know that lots of you are great ambassadors for MOO and so we've been thinking of a way to say thank you. Which is why you can now actually earn money off your next order when you refer friends to MOO.Find out more
