10 Festive Gift Ideas for the Dogs & Dog Lovers in Your Life…

Dear Santa Paws,

The most wonderful time of year may be a little different in 2020, but we still need to show the dogs and dog lovers in our lives just how much we care.

So, here are some of our favourite festive gift ideas… *hint, hint*

Did you know for every £1 spent with a small business, 63p stays in the local economy as opposed to 40p from larger, chain stores!

Remember to shop small, and support your local businesses this year!

1. Heights Farm Premium Pet Foods have a Christmas Hamper suitable for all good boys and girls, and even a special box for the very good puppers who might be experiencing their first Christmas with their humans this year! To contact your local representative >> Click Here <<
