Almost Easter and you still have not managed to get all of your easter gifts organised? This year instead of easter eggs why not have a look at our great gift selection for pet lovers. We have some gorgeous knitted dogs and cats from Ann Claire Petit which are suitable not only as gifts for dog lovers but also are totally child safe as they have no bits that can be pulled of by little fingers.Or how about Morris the useful Mule, a cute addition to any desk and is available in three colours, and he will even hold your pencil or pen in his mouth. If you are always forgetting where your keys or mobile phone is how about our Doorganizer, just hang it over a door handle and you will never leave home without your phone or keys again. Or how about some stylish stationery for dog or cat lovers? We have some handy note pads as well as sets of beautiful cards with lined envelopes. Finally if you are heading off for Easter and need to leave a note for the dog or cat sitter why not treat yourself to one of our Pet Sitter Note Pads you can leave all the relevant information your pet sitter will need to make sure your pooch or puss is well looked after while you are away. Our last day for posting out in time for Easter is the 3rd April, we will still process orders received after this date but they may not arrive in time for Easter. We will be closed from on Friday 6th to Tuesday 10th April, although you can still order from the website, we will not be processing orders until the 10th April. Whatever you get up to at Easter we hope you have a lovely time, oh and remember do not give your dog's chocolate and make sure all those Easter Eggs are out of paws reach!
Well we are almost recovered from our very 1st visit to Crufts as Dougal's Den. We returned with very sore feet, lots of new customers and very little stock. But we had a ball and really enjoyed meeting our customers face to face as well as a whole bunch of our twitter pals.The most popular toy was as expected the Hide a Squirrel dog toy, closely followed by the Bottle Buddies and I hope all of you remember out little tip about filling the bottle with water and popping it in the freezer to help keep your pooches cool when the weather starts to warm up. The great news is that we have some limited stock of all of these toys available online! Thanks for all of your positive comments about the Poochie Bells product, the best seller was Best Friend in Purple and in case you are wondering some of the designs are not available on the website yet as we only just got them in time for Crufts but they should be on the site by the end of this week at the latest. We also hope to have some doggie bells available for those of you who asked about bells to place on your dog's collar or harness so watch this space over the next few weeks. We are now busy trying to get a whole boat load of Kyjen Toys over from the USA as well as researching some new products that visitors to our stand helpfully mentioned they had spotted on their travels. So if the shop looks a bit empty at the moment please try again in a few weeks time. This was our 1st year at Crufts and we totally underestimated the amount of toys you guys would buy!! We would love to see your pics of your doggies with their new toys and poochie bells so why not post a photo on our facebook page , we will pick a winner at the end of the week and they will get a special delivery of some yummy fish4dogs treats!
We are almost ready for Crufts! All the Poochie bells are packed up and we are ready to launch some brand new designs alongside all of the old favourites. We also have some new dog toys from Kyjen our absolute favourite dog toy company. We hope to meet many of our customers face to face and paw to paw as well as being able to catch up with some friends, so if you are popping along don't forget to come and see us in Hall 1 Stand 78. In the meantime to get you in the mood have a look at our latest infographic which is of course all about Crufts!
