Having run around the thousands and thousands of stands at Crufts this year, I have come across a couple of really clever ideas that I wanted to share with you – if you are at Crufts you can pick them up there, if not, you can always order from ourselves or through the web address mentioned below.
As many of you know, I have recently welcomed Holly to the family (she is a little devil) and we had our first trip away a couple of weeks ago. I did not realise how much clobber I would have to take with me to look after her whilst I was away, and found myself with bags and bags of bits and bobs!
I came across the “Stay over Rover” bag from Collarways (Hall 1, stand 168) – it is a great idea...

Once again hosted in the NEC arena, Birmingham, Crufts 2015 is ready to go! For another four glorious days, competitive dogs and their equally competitive owners will be flooding back to see if another year’s worth of preparation have left them in winning form, or about to go home with their tails between their legs.
Crufts 2014 was a roaring success, and featured 524 more dogs than the previous year (which had itself played host to a record number of pooches), as well as canine entrants from 4 previously unrepresented countries; Argentina, China, Serbia and Taiwan.

2. The human costumes
Crufts is obviously a very important competitition to all owners that enter their dogs. But some have no shame and will do anything to ensure their performance stands out and is top notch. This sometimes involves out-there costumes such as this gladiator costume.
3. The doggie costumes
Every year you will spot at least ten dogs wearing ridiculous outfits that their owners have picked...

If a pooch isn’t just for Christmas then a great place to start is to make sure it bounds through the Holiday period with all the gusto of a butcher’s dog! Whilst we all (over) indulge during the festive season, there’s always the temptation to let your best buddy get involved in the party. Not the end of the world - we’re not party poopers over here at City Paws - but at the same time, we want your dog to spring into the New Year rather than drag itself over the line!
The best way to avoid the feast and famine process that many of us bipods will have to go through over the coming weeks is to determine where you dog stands (or lies) on the health/weight scale. We’re pretty sure you...

Three things that are awesome:
Therefore, it makes perfect sense that any movie themed around Christmas, which also features dogs, will be the greatest film of all time… right?
Well, maybe not, but there are still plenty of great options out there covering all three cinematic bases.
