It’s that time of year again, the Merry time, when things start to get a little CRAZY. Gift hunting for your fur babies can be easy if you want to just throw a pack of rawhide or a plastic squeaky toy under the tree. I have no doubt the reaction is always the same, but why not think outside the box this year and surprise your pooch (or pooch lover) with something a little different. I’ve sourced some items you might not have otherwise thought of and these are worth chasing your tail about!
Don’t think twice about capturing a few professional shots of your fur babies. Imagine owning beautiful, quality pet portraits that capture the soul of your little ragamuffin and last a lifetime. When a pet lover books in for a Ragamuffin Session, Caitlin is completely devoted to making sure they own amazing photography, so that they can celebrate and remember their furkid forever. Ragamuffin has a huge range of packages available both standard and specialised ranging from Puppies First Year to an Old Soul Session. Can’t pick? Don’t worry! Grab a Christmas Gift Voucher now for only $250 and you’ll receive a $100 print credit.
Ragamuffin is local to Melbourne & Victoria but interstate bookings are also available. Contact Caitlin 0459 027 945 or firstname.lastname@example.org or head to the website and fill out the Enquiry Form.
For the fur babies who spend most of their time frolicking in the sun, sand and water. I thought this idea was GREAT! Much more practical and fun than the boring old towel and no more wet, sandy shake offs inside the car. Just wrap up your wet mate in one of these robes and the absorbent micro-fiber towelling will take care of the rest.
Surf Dog Australia have bought you a limited edition robe that comes with a Bali Dogs / Oscars Law fabric label so you and your pooch can help spread the word. You can choose from Pink or Blue and $5 from each sale of the limited edition robe will go to these charities. Robe prices start from $25.95 and for an extra cost you can even have your pet’s name embroidered. Orders can be placed via their website or email@example.com or 08 9537 1267.

No 4. Bamboo Village for Pets
Leads & collars are made with double layers of 100% organic bamboo fibre. Bamboo dog leads and collars become softer with wear without getting any less durable. Naturally antibacterial and odour resistant. 100% biodegradable. Perfect for all dogs, particularly those with skin sensitivities.
Becobowls are made from bamboo and rice husks, which are leftover materials from farming. The natural fibres are ground together into fine powder. By adding a biodegradable resin and pressing the powder in a hot mould a Becobowl is born. So while it will last for years in your home, it will start biodegrading as soon as you pop it in your garden. Designed to be eco-friendly and functional, the Becobowl is tough and durable. They are dishwasher friendly and should last for years in the home. They are available in a large and small size, depending on your pet’s appetite!
