Doggy Christmas stocking fillers

Rosie and I take recommending very seriously, especially at this special time of year, so here's a quick round up of some items we definitely think you should be putting in the dogs stocking this year. 

First up on the list this year are these natural dog shampoos from Pure Light Botanics. You may recognise these from our last blog post here, since then we have got the Deluxe Doggy Grooming Gift bag. This is the ultimate grooming gift, you get a 50ml size bottle of each of the shampoos available from the dog range and the original conditioner all  in the lovely cotton presentation bag ready to wrap up and pop under the tree. I wanted to try the conditioner on Rosie and it didn't disappoint, as expected it made her even more silky soft and has definitely made it easier to keep her scruffy fur tangle free!

"Specially formulated for a dog’s delicate nose and containing only premium organic and natural plant extracts, our 'Pure Paws' Organic Dog Shampoos and Conditioner offer luxurious gentle cleansing and coat care for your dog." - Pure Light Botanics

Even though your pooch might not be that keen on bath time goodies, I know I would be very happy to receive this as a luxury dog gift. The scents are all gorgeous so you might be tempted to try them out on the dog before your Christmas guests arrive!

You can have a look at the full pet care range here, having tried and tested these they get a big recommendation from me and Rosie. They have lots of human treats too, so you can do some shopping for your friends whilst you're there! If the dog range is anything to go by I will definitely be adding a few for me to my basket next time we get low on stock.

 

 

Now...It wouldn't be a Christmas list if we didn't talk about treats. As always our go to place for all things yummy is The Artisan Pet Deli, they have a lovely christmas collection here. I think Rosie's ultimate christmas treat would be The Innocent Hound Duck Sausage With Cranberry she goes absolutely mad for these bite sized slices of sausage and including cranberries means they are the perfect gift for this time of year. I'm a sucker for pretty packaging and Fetch and Follow treats have the cutest little designs. How perfect are these Minty Mistletoe Kisses. Stocking the best natural treats for our best friends The Artisan Pet Deli is definitely where you need to look for special Christmas treats, be sure to check out all the other goodies including toys and even some dog related human gifts too.

 

With so much going on around the big day it's nice to have something to occupy Rosie and distract her from the excitement. She is a big fan of interactive toys so when we found RuffShop a few months back I was so happy to see how many they have to offer from some great brands.

As Rosie has tried and tested the Caitec chase 'n chomp sticky bone that will be my first recommendation, I often load it up with her food or yummy treats and stick it down and let her work out how to get them out. It is so handy to be able to stick it pretty much anywhere.

I also love the look of the West Paw Design Zogoflex Toppl, you can use one on its own or interlock the two sizes together to make it a little more challenging. I know this is something Rosie would love so that might be making an appearance in her stocking this year.

Ruffshop has a really great selection of interactive toys which you can have a look through here, definitely a good way to help our four legged friends cope with this busy season.

Another lovely little Christmas gift - these bespoke lead and collar racks from The Midsummer Studio. I have one of these for Rosie and it is so well made and perfect for holding some of her leads, collars and even bow ties. They are custom made and you can choose from a few different colours and finishes to suit your decor and of course personalised with your pets name to make it that little bit more special. This is a very new shop with lots of lovely items coming soon, the racks are the first to be available. We absolutely love ours, it is the perfect addition to keep some of Rosie's many accessories  tidy.

This year I have the addition of Bow ties to the shop, which are absolutely perfect for this time of year! There are a few festive designs to choose from including the fun christmas pudding design and the ever popular classic red tartan which is also available in a collar too.

Also fun for the festive season are the new 'Santas Little Helper' ID tags, but if you are looking for one for all year round we have other designs available here too.

Christmas is the perfect excuse to get a new collar for your four legged friend so you can take a look at our full range here. 

Hopefully this has given you a little inspiration of what to fill the dogs stocking with, we all know they deserve to be involved too. Happy shopping!
