Holiday Gift Ideas!


When you open presents, does your dog watch eagerly, hoping there’s a little something in the package for her? Does her bark start to sound like “Jingle Bells” as December approaches? Ok, maybe the answer on that last one is no. And maybe your dog doesn’t really understand the concept of gifts, but it’s always entertaining to have a little something for them for year-end holidays.

Besides, many pets could use a new lead, collar, toy or treat, so why not have a necessary purchase double as holiday cheer? Here at Spot, we’ve consulted with some elves who specialise in canine gifts. They recommend a few area vendors who make delightful items for pets.

One is Mischief Made Collars. Based in Brisbane and selling online at Etsy, this company makes affordable, quality collars, leads and bandannas. Choose from designs that include pina colada (lots of pineapples) and butter mellow, a deep gold pattern that will perfectly offset darker fur.

To personalise your furry friend’s belongings, check out Monti & Co. It sells bandannas, leads and, for that dog dandy in your life, bow ties. You can add customised names or words as iron ons. Monti & Co. also sells vinyl stickers that you can order with your pet’s name and use to label dog bowls and other items.

At Arlo & Ozzy, check out the cafe swag, a colourful  piece of fabric that can be easily rolled up and carried to your favourite cafe so that your dog stay comfy while watching you enjoy a long black. Their pooch pouches will add a touch of glamour to the chore of picking up after your pet. These vibrant bags can carry most standard rolls of poop collection bags and clip to collars or leads. For those formal events, pick up a dress or bow tie for your pooch. And for the dog who has everything, Arlo & Ozzy  carries a range of treats.

Happy holidaying prepping everyone!
