1. Pooch Play dog monitor

You’ve heard of the FitBit, well now think FitBit for dogs. This fitness and activity monitor is said by the manufacturers to, ‘add up to 2 years to your dog’s life’; and what better gift is there than the gift of life?! The Pooch Play tracker is linked to a phone application and displays the dog’s exercise routine and weight around the clock. Now you can have a dog that is fit enough for show.

2. Lily’s Kitchen advent calendar for dogs

When you open your advent calendar what does your dog do? Does she look at you and wish more than anything that she could have one of her own? If so, you could always treat her to a Lily’s Kitchen advent calendar. According to Lily’s Kitchen your dog can at last count down the days until Christmas with things like, ‘Flower-shaped treats made with beef liver, fresh carrots, blackstrap molasses and alfalfa’.

What better way is there to treat her for being such a good dog than with a handful of special Christmas-themed treats from Alfie & Molly. Alfie & Molly Christmas tree treats are sold by various pet food outlets including Pets Pantry.
