Christmas 2021 gift guide for dogs

 Woof woof woof and merry Christmas. Now if like me you are a dog parent you will love this little guide to the best gifts for your furbaby this festive season. I love to spoil my dogs. I mean it doesn't have to be Christmas for them to be spoilt let's face it. But I do love to do it over the festive season. 

I have two willing testers for this gift guide. Millie is a 9 almost 10-year-old springador. She can be fussy and like what she likes. 

Then we have her brother Mylo he is a 7-year-old dalmatian. He lovely everyone and everything. He does have stomach issues so is on a more restricted diet. 

As with all these guides some items, I have bought some have been gifted, all will be received the same. 

First up Mylo would like to show you his new harness that he bought himself with his hard-earned pocket money. Bark and Ride Lewis Adventure Harness. This harness has been put through its paces by Mylo from little walks to bog diving, rolling in heather/bogs and following bikes this harness is amazing. It is designed perfectly for adventure dogs. It has an awesome grab handle on the back for easy control and long with so many design features I will let Bark and Ride explain. But before I do. I should mention this is not only a great product but it is a small Highland business too. They offer a range of gifts for your pooch this Christmas so check them out.

 Here we have one of my favourite gifts. A blanket for your furbaby. I actually have has one of these made but ASDA photo but it is 57in x37in and I couldn't for the life of me get a photo of it. It is so stunning and cosy. You can personalise it with photos of your pooch and it is such a nice way for them to get snuggly. Pop it in their bed or pack it for cold car rides this is an awesome gift. 

Food and treats 

The gift of food for a pooch is always a good one but both my dog's love Burns dog food. Millies sampled the all the treats above and especially loved the ocean bites. 

Millie is also trying the Burns senior biscuits

Both dogs are loving their biscuits and treat from burns. 
Here we have Natural instinct Dog Christmas Feast. This is by a fantastic brand that offer premium raw pet food. The meals are all offering nutritionally balanced, complete meals for dogs and cats. All Natural Instinct meals include 100% British meats, with added fruits, vegetables and natural supplements to create wholesome and most importantly, healthy meals. The Christmas dinner sourced turkey with bone and liver, and essential vegetables and fruits including carrots, parsnip, spinach and apple. Not forgetting traditional festive flavours and nutrients, this year’s Christmas Feast also includes sage, cranberry powder, British flaxseed oil and sea kelp. Both my dog loved trying this I would recommend this for sure. 

Another favourite for my pups is Lilys kitchen. They loved the new festive treats. The meaty section was also a winner with me as it came in a lovely little tin. 

Show us one woofer who wouldn’t want to rummage through a meaty selection of delicious bites!
This tin includes Festive Turkey Jerky, Scrumptious Duck & Venison Sausages & Best Ever Beef Mini Burgers. 

The turkey jerky
Let your woofer join in the festive feast with our delicious Festive Turkey Jerky made with proper meat, for a proper treat. These tempting grain-free recipes are made with natural ingredients and without any added nasties – so your furry family can enjoy them throughout the festivities.

Must not forget one of my dogs favriote treat in this guide Vets Kitchen Little Stars. These are such good little treats to have with you on the go. They offer different varieties of Stars Treats for Smart Dogs, Active Dogs and Sensitive Dogs. These are suitable for dogs of all ages. 

I don't know where to start with these. w'zis is a new range and brand for the dogs to try. As you can imagine my dogs were a bit spoilt on the run-up to this guide but when the postie delivered this they were so excited and kept taking me to the box. It was like they were saying excuse me but this is for us so open it up. W'zis dog treats are all plant-based so can be enjoyed by dogs on a plant-based diet. 

Triple Tin Gift Box Our 100% natural, grain-free, plant-based treats have a deliberately firm texture and angular profile to prolong the eating time and promote teeth cleaning. But you can afford to be generous; these healthy morsels only contain 1 calorie per treat, perfect for training.

Postman & Roast
W’ZIS pooch Greta can’t get enough of postman and lives for Sunday roasts. You won’t find a whiff of a postman in here, more like something akin to smokey (vegan) bacon, or should that be smokey facon? The rest is all vegetable goodness; sweet potatoes, pea, tomato, pumpkin and sunflower seeds.

Slipper & Biscuit
Save your slippers and consume fewer biscuits — let our treat fill the void. Slipper & Biscuit’s green and yellow colours are flavoured with pooch favourite peanut butter. The contrasting green is the natural result of adding broccoli and breath freshening apple.

Lamp Post & Chips
After some consideration, we decided not to mirror the unique aroma of lamp posts. These have a more gentle flavour profile. The splendid blueberry colour comes from the inclusion of purple sweet potato.

W’ZIS Fang
 It’s the teeth of our identity, our bat signal, a call to arms to fight all dull, brownand bone-shaped treats. And its profile makes for an awesome dog chew — the Fang scrapes those gnashers and tickles their gums. The Fang is no kind of miserly dog chew — it’s a chunky little number prepared to put in the hard work of satiating the insatiable.

Dubya Lights
A longer-lasting chew with the added bonus of fillable holes. The Dubya can be chewed on its own or filled the holes with a paste of your choosing. Smear it with dog-friendly peanut butter or cream cheese for added pooch satisfaction. Available in two sizes for small and larger dogs.
Next up we have Arden Grange Tasty Liver Treat for cats and dog perfect for stuffing their favourite toys or if your dogs hate taking tablets. I promise with a little bit of this they will love taking their tablets.

With lots of fresh liver, our Tasty liver treat the perfect reward for your dog or cat. This irresistible paste is ideal for training and great for giving medication to your pet either mixed in with a crushed tablet or with liquid medications on a dish. This is a complementary food that does not contain any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.

Both dogs loved this and started to beg for their tablets after using this for their medications. 

Another great brand Barking heads have a lovely range of dog treats. Barking Heads is a natural pet food brand. They have recently launched their new Tuck Shop Treats! Of course, every dog owner wants to treat their pups but the market is full of unhealthy treats. So Barking Heads have designed four completely natural recipes that offer customers a healthier way to treat their dogs. Barking Heads have a treat in the range for every occasion, bite-size, chews & long-dwell time! Each treat also has added health benefits.

Millie has skin problems they think it might be an allergy to grass or pollen. 
I love the brand Anicura. If you are your precious pooch has a skin issue you need to try Anicure's dog products. 

The Shampoo and conditioner have been created to provide a natural alternative to the harsh and chemical shampoos that are on the market. The naturally active ingredients have been carefully selected for their bio-scientifically proven ability to support the maintenance of healthy skin. The Shampoo will work with your dog's skin instead of against it and will leave the skin and fur feeling nourished and moisturised.

The Gel is designed to encourage further soothing of the skin. The naturally active ingredients like Sea Buckthorn and Apple Cider Vinegar, have been carefully selected for their bio-scientifically proven ability to maintain healthy skin. The Gel will soothe and nourish the skin.

The Dog Spray was originally developed with the belief that the skin can overcome any problems when being given the right nutrients and care. Our Spray contains a multitude of natural oils that all aid the skin in becoming stronger and healthier. Think of ingredients Sea Buckthorn, rich in Omegas, Lavender to soothe the skin and Safflower as an antioxidant.

The Spray has two key functions, firstly immediately relief of itchiness and cooling, calming of the skin. Secondly, feeding the skin healthy nutrients to ensure it becomes stronger long-term and better able to fend of flare-ups or other allergic reactions, like redness and itchiness.
