    Well what a day we have had here at Dougal's Den! We have spent the day looking at lots of lovely pictures of Jubilee Dogs ( while we should have been sorting out some boring accountancy stuff! ). So here goes with our with our favourites of the Jubilee Dog , royal pooches.

    We love all of these pictures and it just goes to show how important dogs are even when we are all busy celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. We hope you have all had a lovely day and that you have a few more days of fun or relaxation planned to celebrate what must be a once in a lifetime event for all of us. But we could not leave you without a picture of how the other half have celebrated this weekend...even the cats get to celebrate this weekend just like this lucky moggie!!

  • Hide a Toy Gingerbread House Tested by Pickles

    We love it when we see pictures or even better video's of your pets having fun with our products. So we just had to share this video from Karen Wild aka @wildpaw and the amazing Pickles with the Hide a Toy Gingerbread House from Kyjen. Pickles is a very clever pooch, well what else would you expect having a training and behaviour expert as his hu-mum! In this sequence you can see Pickles correctly get the ginger bread man toy out of the house first. The toys are part of the interactive dog toys from kyjen which we stock. They are extremely popular toys for dogs who need a little more than just a toy they can chew or chase.

  • Seamsters Dog Toy Tested

    We are always very excited to find a new dog toy to test and when we heard that one of our favourite brands Kyjen had introduced a new concept in dog toys for chewers well we had to get some in stock. They are called seamsters and the concept is simple, combine a rubber dog toy with a rawhide chew for dogs who love to chew. So you have a rubber toy, shaped like a bone or a rugby ball, or American Football depending on which side of the Atlantic you are on. The rubber shapes have strategically placed slots which you then thread thin rawhide strips through. Then give to your pooch to investigate, we choose Ozzy McDougal for this test as he is generally more interested in the chew type toys. He has the small weave bone seamster toy in his paws and as you can see he is kept pretty busy with the toy. He spent quite a while trying to get the rawhide bits off the toy and even after the strip was removed he was still quite interested in the toy. The best thing was that he could only get little bits of the rawhide chew off the toy at any one time making it a much safer option, than just giving him the rawhide chew on is own. We have the full range in stock as well as the replacement rawhide strips designed to complement the toys. The recommendation is to soak the specially designed rawhide strips in water to let them soften, rethread the toy and leave it to harden before letting your dog have the toy again for safety reasons. However we also found that the very thin strips of hide chew available in supermarkets or pet shops will sometimes fit depending on their thickness, but they will not be as easy to thread. An added bonus with the football shaped toy is that the two halves are actually threaded together and there is space inside to place a few smaller treats or pieces of dried kibble, making it an even more interesting toy for your curious pooch. Once again Kyjen have come up with a great toy range which we are sure will prove very popular with all of our doggie customers.

  • Labradoodle Honking the Horn

    This little cutie decided that he had had enough and wanted to go home so he honked the horn much to the amusement of his owners!  

  • Pippa Langhorne & Buddy Christmas Style

    Last month at the LovePets show in Peterborough we had the great pleasure of meeting the lovely Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist Pippa Langhorne and her Lhasa Apso, Buddy. Pippa has a truly enchanting voice and we all thoroughly enjoyed watching her entertain the visitors to the show with her lovely boy. After one of her performances Pippa stopped by our stand and Buddy tried on one of our fun Dog Elf Costumes, as you can see he looks very cute. However the pup was not that impressed by the outfit ( we think he did not like the little elf feet ). So instead Buddy is now sporting one of our Santa Hoodies, we think he look so cute and we hope that his Santa Hoodie will keep him warm and looking festive right the way through to Christmas Day.



    You can find out all about Pippa and Buddy here and even watch some of her performances. We have a great range of christmas wear for your pooch from bandanas to hats and even some cute doggie ties so your dog can feel dressed up for christmas day without too much effort!

We know two happy springer spaniels who have had one for over six months and it has still survived with only one small visit to the dog toy hospital required! They are around 70cm long so are big enough for huge dogs to flap around or smaller ones to snuggle up with after they have had their squeaker fix!
