  • Easter Chick Competition


    How do you fancy winning this gorgeous Chocolate Easter Chicken? He is 750g of Yummy Caramel Milk and inside he has salted popcorn, what a great combination. Obviously he is for you and not your doggie! But we will include some non chocolate treats from Pet Munchies for your pooch or cat as well!

    All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to post a picture of your pooch or cat enjoying the easter break on our facebook page or email it to and we will pop it on facebook for you.

    You can enter as many times as you like and share with your friends so they can enter too.

    The competition runs from Good Friday until Midnight on Easter Monday, we will pick the winner on Tuesday morning and get the chocolate chicken in the post Tuesday afternoon.

    Please remember not to let your dogs have any chocolate or anything with rasins or sultanas like hot cross buns as they contain substances that are toxic for dogs.

    Hope you all have a very happy easter.

  • Snow dog competition winner - Arnie

    Last week we said goodbye to most of the snow around Leek and the surrounding areas but while it was still around we took the opportunity to have a competition our facebook page. We know lots of you have been out and about with your dogs in the snow so we asked for pictures of your dogs enjoying the white stuff. There were lots of  great pictures of your pooches prancing around in the cold and frosty weather having great fun ( most of the time ) and also a few pictures of snow babies who were experiencing their first tentative paw prints in the snow. Picking a winner was not easy but we finally decided on Arnie who is an Airedale Terrier who lives in Cheddleton with his family. This is the winning photo of Arnie

    Arnie What a poster boy
      Arnie won one pack of each of the Hungry Hector Treats, so that was nine packets of treats and here he is pictures with all of his stash of tasty treats.
    Arnie with Hungry Hector Treats Hmm which one to try first??
    Arnie Smells Good
    Arnie enjoying Hungry Hectors Very Tasty
      We can't wait to hear which of the treats were Arnie's favourites and we hope that he will come into the shop to visit us very soon. Thanks to everyone else for entering the competition we had a great time looking at all of your pictures. Keep an eye on our facebook page as we are having a competition in February to win a set of tickets to Crufts where we hope to meet some more of our customers from all over the UK.

  • Ring in the New Year

    What a busy week since our last blog, we have been to a wedding, had a lovely christmas and I caught a rather nasty christmas cold which goes some way to explaining the lack of posts for the past week. So first we have to say congratulations to Mr and Mrs C who got married a week ago today they were, and will continue to be blissfully happy and we can't wait until they join us tomorrow for New Year Celebrations. Thanks to all of you who entered our ( almost daily) competitions in the lead up to christmas. We will have the full list of winners available soon, we just have a few left to chase up.  One of our New Years resolutions is to be more organised on the blogging front so you can all see how we get on with that one! No thanks would be complete without saying a massive thank you to all of our customers for their support in 2011, it has been a roller coaster of a year finding lots of great products for you and your furry friends.

    Dogs Celebrating


    So as you prepare for your New Year Celebrations whatever you are doing we wish you all a very happy 2012!  As you can see above we had to use a stunt double for Mr Ozzy McDougal as he would not still long enough for a pic!

  • Walk with Me - Christmas Countdown Competition Day 23

    Final preparations are almost complete for the big day! We actually have two big days this year as some very special friends are getting married later today so we will be getting all dressed up in posh frocks and dinner jackets and having a very merry start to Christmas. We have a huge list of things that need to be sorted out this morning before we head off to the wedding venue, one of which is walking the pooches. So we are very excited that our competition today is some expert advice from Karen Wild aka @wildpaw.  Karen has a whole range of e-books available on her website where you can have a look at the specific training and behaviour issues you need help with and combine the various chapters into your very own training manual. Karen Wild Karen says "Taking your dog out on that post Christmas dinner walk can be one of the most enjoyable parts of Christmas Day. But what if your dog decides to pull you around and makes that special time a misery? My gift to you for the Dougal's Den advent today is a copy of my Walk with me e-book which gives you and your dog a special treat to be able to walk together on lead without fear of being dragged about. Merry Christmas and Happy walking! " Karen Wild BA(Hons)Dip App Psy How to Enter: We have one copy of this fab guide available and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to tell us what training your dog needs ( can be funny or serious) by posting a comment on our blog. Oh and if you are on twitter why not pop along and say hello to @wildpaw! The competition is open from 8am on the 23rd December until 8am on the 24th December and we will announce the winner sometime this week!

  • Something for the Kitty Kats- Christmas Countdown Competition Day 20

    With all of the boxes and wrapping paper that are all over our office at the moment I am reminded how cats usually love to play with boxes and bags more than they like the actual presents they contain. Our two cats Zack and Millie are no different and they simply cannot resist plastic bag, in fact we have had to rescue Millie from a black bin bag half full of wrapping paper on more than one occasion.

    Zack and Millie


    So we just love the idea of this cute cat tunnel which cats will love to climb inside and explore. It even has a cute red ball attached for paw swipes. Our cats just like to sit inside theirs and watch the world go by! The tunnels is red and has a festive green christmas design. Of course no christmas cat would be happy without some tasty morsels so our prize today is a tunnel plus three packs of Dreamies snacks. Cat Tunnel How to Enter So if you want to be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is tell us what's the strangest place your cat hides or perches on to watch the world go by. The competition is open from 10am on the 21st December until 10am on the 22nd December and we will announce the winner before christmas and do our best to get the parcel delivered before christmas.

  • Vet on Call - Christmas Countdown Competition Day 20

    I often thought as a child that I would like to be a vet when I was all grown up, but I think I would have found some aspects of the job too distressing, never mind the length of time it takes to qualify!  I suppose it must have been all those hours of watching James Herriot as a child or maybe it was the many trips to the vet when I was a child with various pets who were in need of some expert care. So it is no surprise at all that I loved the Vet on Call book by Mark Abraham, it is a tale of how Marc (having been told by his father to make something of himself) decided to set up an emergency out of hours service. As you can imagine it is packed full of a host of stories some funny, some sad, and we thoroughly recommend it as a great christmas read! The Nativity chapter will have you laughing out loud.

    Vet on Call Book by Marc Abraham


      Dougal was very impressed when we came back with our own copy earlier this year when we got to meet Marc at the Kennel Club launch of his 1st book. Marc has kindly donated a signed copy of his book which we have all ready to send out to one lucky winner. Some of you may recognise Marc from the telly where he has appeared on BBC Breakfast News, ITV's This Morning and Day Break, Sky's My Pet Shame amongst many others.  Or if you are a tweeter you no doubt will have taken part in his Guess the breed challenges. You can check what Marc has been up to and read all about his latest projects on his website as well as getting loads of handy  hints and tips about Canine Care on his iPhone app. How to Enter: 1. Its really simple just tell us what your most favourite pet related film, book or TV show ever was or is by posting a comment on our blog. The competition is open from 10am on the 20th December to 10am on the 21st December and we will announce the winner some time later this week.

  • Doorganizer - Christmas Countdown Competition Day 18



    It's around this time in December that we are in major panic mode. With all of the rush of last minute Christmas orders coming in thick and fast we have hardly had time to think about our last minute Christmas preparations. We have yet to organise a turkey but thankfully have most other food items thanks to a certain on line supermarket! There is still a fair amount of rushing around to do and sometimes we would forget our heads if they were not attached! Which brings me to today's competition prize, it's a neat little solution for the forgetful people in your life. Called a Doorganizer it hangs on your door and is a place to store your phone, keys and tickets so you won't leave home without them! So if you have any forgetful friends then this could be a great last minute gift for them! We can even gift wrap it and pop it in the post to arrive in time for Christmas. To be in with a chance of winning one here's all you have to do:- 1. Simply post a comment on our blog telling us what's the most awful thing you have ever left home without! The competition is open from 10am on the18th to 10am on the 19th, the winner will be chosen at random and announced sometime next week! We still have a few days worth of competitions before Christmas so be sure to check in each day for a chance to win a great gift for you or your furry friends.

  • Canine Care App - Christmas Countdown Competition Day 14

But never did I think that I would be able to say the words...blocked anal glands in dogs?...there's an app for that!  Well now there is thanks to that lovely chap Marc Abraham  otherwise know to the gang on twitter as @Marcthevet.
