Dirty Pooch is a strategic card game that allows flea flinging amongst your opponents’ dogs. Who says this has to be realistic? The premise of the game is to get rid all of your initial fleas via action cards by either flinging them to your best friend–to-be-friendemy or discarding them back to wherever fleas come from. You can either try to win the entire the game by being the first owner to get rid of all their dogs’ fleas or obstruct your friend from getting rid of their dogs’ fleas. This game can be as nice or mean as you wish for it to be. How will you play?

Hey there! We are Estella and Sally and we are the creators of Dirty Pooch! We are thrilled to introduce this new card game featuring people's best friend. Much of the ideas and creation for this game have been inspired by the love for our dogs and life long passion for all animals. Our dream for the future is to be able to help rescue them. So why create a card game? From a young age our favorite thing to play were card and board games. One day we realized that there were not many games out there related to dogs. With dedication and passion we now present to you, Dirty Pooch!
Have you ever walked your dog at the park and he comes home scratching himself silly? And you find out later he has a bad case of the fleas? Well that just happened to our dogs recently and they came home with a handful of fleas! We tried different types of treatments, some worked and most didn’t. As frustrating as it was at the time, we wanted to find the right treatment because at the end of the day a dog with fleas is an unhappy dog. One day we were jokingly saying that a way to treat our dogs from fleas would be to grab the fleas and fling it to others. Although that would not actually happen in real life, we thought it would be a funny and entertaining way to include it in a game. And since there aren't many games out there related to dogs, why not add this in that category. We put a lot of heart and thought into this game. We want it to be fun, relatable and educational. We hope everyone feels the same when they play.
We looked at the work of over 30 artists, and although each were very talented we had to carefully choose the one that truly fit our theme and our game.
We can proudly say the artist that we chose illustrated our game exactly how we envisioned.
