The countdown to Christmas is on and if you're anything like us, you've probably already started thinking about presents of all shapes and sizes that will bring a smile to the face of your friends and family.
Here are 7 amazing gift ideas that we think would be on your dog's Xmas wish list this year because we're pretty sure they were on our own dogs' letters to Santa.
George Barclay Aran Knit Deluxe Pet Blanket
Reason it’s on the list: It’s a touch of luxury to snuggle up on during those cold winter nights (and days). Available in two sizes and multiple colours.
Price: £19.99 – 35.99
The George Barclay Aran Knit Deluxe Pet Blanket has an inviting, homely appeal, the ideal place for your faithful companion to snuggle.
The blanket’s signature ‘Aran knit’ styling contrasts beautifully with the opulent faux fur lining, which must be touched, to be believed! Available in two sizes, with four colour options.
Reason it’s on the list: For a relatively small outlay, it’ll bring hours of fun. Our dogs love to play, Christopher would play fetch constantly if he could. During the winter months, with darker mornings and even darker evenings ahead, a glow-in-the-dark ball seems like a must-have product in the toy box.
For All DogKind Deep Cleansing Shampoo with Organic Aloe Vera, Rosemary & Eucalyptus Oil
Reason it’s on the list: Let’s be honest, winter brings its fair share of muddy walks so shampoos are kind of essential. What makes this one stand out to us is that across the whole range natural products are at the heart of the ingredients.
Price: £9.99 (RRP)
Recommended by vets and used by groomers, this shampoo has been designed specifically with the muddy dogs and fox-poo lovers in mind.
A naturally powerful formula, it neutralises unwanted odours whilst cutting through grease and dirt to leave even the smelliest coats smelling fresh and feeling fabulous.

Reason they’re on the list: We have been using the Original Grippy lead since we first tested four years ago. The quality is the same today as it was when we first received for review. The unique loop design makes it easy to use to give better control, putting less stress on arms and elbows when out walking with your dog.
Price: Collars from £7.99, Leads from £17.99
Award-winning Grippy Leads are designed and made in Cornwall.
This dog lead with a difference has multiple handles for a non-slip grip and allows a short/medium/long lead instantly.
Winner of the BBC 1 TV show ‘The Customer is Always Right’, the Original Grippy is great for all dogs – both big and small, in a wide range of colours, with collars to match.
Reason it’s on the list: We first tested the PetWeighter bowl last year in a final attempt to stop our then nearly 13-year-old dog Mia throwing her bowl around after breakfast and tea times. And it worked. We love the fact it’s now available in sizes suitable for smaller dogs and a host of colours.
Price: £24.99 (Large), £19.99 (Small)
PetWeighter is a strong and sturdy dog bowl that stays exactly where you place it, preventing spillages and mess.
Available in Large and Small sizes, simply fill the base with water or sand. Its elevated height ensures your dog won’t need to stoop to eat and drink.
Dishwasher-friendly and chew-resistant, PetWeighter comes in six modern colours. £24.99 (Large), £19.99 (Small).
