Not sure how to make Fido’s festive season pawfect? Don’t worry, the Merchant House Truro team are on hand to give you our favourite product suggestions on how to make this Christmas the best your doggy’s ever had!
Why not get something to keep Fido entertained for hours, even after the excitement of Christmas has worn off? We like the Nina Ottosson’s Dog Brick which allows you to hide treats in a washable plastic bone-shaped puzzle and you can watch him use his logic to remove the bones and shift the bricks in order to retrieve the treat! You can fill it with whatever you like, pieces of kibble or bits of turkey from Christmas dinner, Fido’s sure to love it whatever you choose! If he’s been really good… We recommend some doggy chocolate drops!
The Classic Stuffed Toy
We’re a fan of wandering through the pet store with Merchant House mutt Murphy and letting him pick his own toy! We tend to find that the most popular choice is the duck or other stuffed bird that makes a very realistic quack when they’re squeezed between the jaws of a very happy Murphy!
The Kong Ball with a Tooth Brushing Twist
Kong has a world-renowned name in the pet industry and one reason is because of their robust toys that dogs seem to love. The Kong Stuff-a-Ball is a great addition to any Kong collection as it can be filled with Kong snacks to keep Fido entertained while you’re opening presents or when you’re out of the house, while also having patented Denta-Ridges to clean teeth and massage gums! Meaning Fido doesn’t have to worry about his Christmas dinner causing cavities!
Make Him Some Christmas Treats!
We love Christmas and we all indulge in a little too much food, so make sure you have something yummy to treat Fido with too! Whether you buy some doggy chocolates, save him some turkey and potatoes with gravy or want to do something really special like bake him some Christmas cookies, there are plenty of recipes online to inspire you and make Fido’s Christmas the best yet!
