The Joys of Christmas with Pets

Not long to go now , one last push and all the pet owners up and down the country will have received their presents for their pets then the festivites can begin. The joys of christmas when people show how much they care for family and loved ones but particularly their pets, Christmas is a special time when everyone gets of the treadmill of life to spend quality time with people we care about.

We also spend lots more time with our pets and as we do this we perhaps spend more time walking the dogs or maybe going to a wood or coastal walk that we don’t visit too often. These change in circumstances may make you aware of needs for your pet that you hadn’t considered before, like maybe you need a new boot liner to protect your car from muddy paws, or maybe a paw plunger would be a great idea to clean the paws after the walk. Possibly the dog has behavioural problems and wouldn’t recall so you start to consider a dog training collar, or maybe you have decided to spend your free time giving your dog a good clip and do need that new dog clipper.

Christmas can bring a whole host of requirements for pet products so it normally is a busy time of year online as we normally work between Christmas and New Year to satisfy these needs. Maybe the dog has started to bark incessantly or maybe the neighbours have complained, we normally find that this time of year is a very busy one for dog training products particularly anti barking collars.

I suppose with 10-14 days off it is a good time to spend some quality time with them and try to eradicate some bad behaviour. Possibly the cold spell that is forecast may bring some snow so we are thinking of cat shelters for our outdoor cats or new scratchers or toys to keep our cats amused. One thing is for sure that we will be spending a large proportion of our time online so whatever your needs we will be there to assist.

Wishing you and your pets a very Merry Christmas and hope that you all have an enjoyable break. Best wishes Tim , Aimee, Sam, Sophie and Jill
