All You Want for Christmas December 1, 2016 – Posted in: Blog

The countdown to Christmas has begun and if you’re wondering what to get your BFF (that’s Best Furry Friend, btw…) then there’s no shortage of inspiration this year, especially if you’re a regular customer here at Lapdog Nation.

As we all know, chocolate is a strict no-no, as are mince pies and Christmas puds (they contain raisins, not to mention alcohol) over the festive season, so what can you give your dog so that he or she can enter into the seasonal spirit?

Well, how about a nice, chewable deer antler? It might not float your boat, but you can almost guarantee that your dog will love it to bits – literally. Aussie Antlers sell a range of naturally-shed antlers for dogs of all sizes, as well as some gorgeous crunchy biscuits with a secret ingredient – you guessed it, antler!

Here in Oz, Christmas means summer sun, so if you’re planning on an outdoorsy Yuletide, your dog might benefit from a portable tent. Pipolli does a range of easily transportable cotton canvas tents that work well on dry ground, and that will give your dog some comfortable shade. These tents are also great as a retreat for busy family gatherings.

What’s Christmas without a bit of bling? If you like to adorn your dog with eye-catching finery, then Harper & Hugo’s range of stunning, handmade jewellery is for you. The necklaces, made from ceramic and acrylic beads, with silver findings, come in a wide range of colours so you’ll have no problems co-ordinating her with your Christmas jumper.

The next best thing about Christmas is body products and smellies. Fact. Everyone deserves to get a new supply every year, dogs included. Thankfully, Mr Paw and the Loyal Canine Co can help you to indulge your canine companion with its selection of soaps and shampoos made from all-natural ingredients.

Once you’ve unwrapped everything, it’s time to relax and indulge in some tasty treats and snuggle up with your loved ones – two- and four-legged!
