I have lots of dog-loving friends. This is obvious, being a dog person and working in the pet industry. And if my friends didn’t like dogs, they wouldn’t be my friends, obviously!
Christmas is approaching, and I am trying to get some practical and unique presents. Every time I shop, I try to buy ethical, eco-friendly, and handmade products whenever possible.
I have a few favourite brands that I always consider buying from if I buy a present for one of my dog-loving friends or myself and my dogs. I am happy to share them with you as you might find something that you like or would like to gift.
This is not advertising, just a genuine list of my favourite companies to buy gifts (in alphabetical order)
Dotty 4 Paws
Dotty 4 Paws is a directory dedicated to dogs. A One-Stop Shop for All Things Dog. A place where dog-owners can discover new places to go with their pup. Somewhere ‘pawrents’ can sniff out a gift for their discerning hound or a fellow hound-loving human. They also advertise pet care services. I love to look at Kate’s recommendations for dog-friendly places to go. Then I just close my eyes, and I can see us all there…
Leo Charley and Me
Leo Charley & Me is a small company based in rural Staffordshire. Actually, not far from me, and I had the pleasure to meet Kim a few times. Kim designs and makes bespoke and unique collars and accessories for dogs and owners who like to express their personality and style to stand out from the crowd. My boys have beautiful collars with bows from upcycled jeans. And I’m going to treat my girls to some this Christmas. But please don’t tell them!
No Fuss Fill
Tracey is making life easier and more fun for new puppy parents and pups with her great ideas! I absolutely love her No Fuss Fill Kong filler! Its’ available on pre-order now. If your dogs love filled Kongs you need this one!
Her shop is full of wonderful products.
Scruffy Little Terrier
Michelle from Scruffy Little Terrier sells gifts for terriers & terrier lovers. Her online shop is packed full of gifts ideas, including dog-inspired slogan clothing and dog-themed gifts for your home. And if you are a terrier person, that’s the shop to go to! I got birthday bandanas from Michelle, hardy wooden toys for my destructive terriers, cups, and a hoodie. We love them all!!
I love the motto of the owner Michelle:
You won’t find anything in my online shop that I wouldn’t give to my dogs or use myself!
Where do you shop this Christmas?
