Has your dog been good this year? If so, perhaps they deserve a visit from Santa ‘Claws’! (or should that be ‘Santa Paws’? I’ll stop now – Ed). To this end, our regular contributor, Karen Boyce of Beastly Thoughts Professional Dog Services (BTPDS) recommends some of her favourite doggy gifts for your pooch this Christmas.
Snuggling Up On A Cold Day
Christmas is around the corner and it’s time to get presents for all the family. I always include my dogs on my Christmas list and this year is no different. I have put together a little Christmas wish list that your dogs might like you to have a look at.
Snuggling up on a cold day is something our dogs love to do, particularly our small short-haired breeds. These lightweight and incredibly soft blankets are perfect for winter holidays and sofa days. And you can add your dog’s name too!
How about a luxury hamper to spoil your pets this Christmas? You could also send one to a special family member’s dog? These hampers are super special and will make your pets feel spoilt all over the festive period. Plus, you have a lovely hamper to reuse afterwards.
Sssh! Don’t tell the dog, but how about spoiling yourself with a personalised dog walking bag. They come with various pockets and a neat little poo bag dispenser. It makes a lovely gift for you or a dog-loving friend.
Your Traditional Christmas Day Dog Walk
And how about some special Christmas themed collars, leads, bows and bandanas as fantastic gifts for the dog. These would look lovely being worn on the traditional Christmas Day walk. My own dogs will be wearing these on the big day.
Finally, over at the Awesome and Rawsome Pets shop in Froncysyllte, we are packing some of our very popular chews and treats into personalised eco-friendly cotton Christmas-themed gift bags. If you would like to make your dog feel special, why not ask us about these? And once they have eaten the contents, you can reuse the bag to perhaps store your dog’s toys in.
