Posing with a dog in your Tinder pictures is probably a smart way to get more people interested in you.  But is it FALSE ADVERTISING?

Here’s a new dating term for you:  DOGFISHING.  That’s when someone poses for their dating profile pics with a dog or other pet that’s not theirs.

And there’s an online dating coach in D.C. who says you shouldn’t do it . . . even if it gets you more matches.  Quote, “It’s just odd when you’re using someone else’s dog online, and it seems like you’re trying too hard.”
