Five Great Gifts For All The New Dog Mama’s & Papa’s!

Now that we have a dog, Gordon, I’m thinking about all the dog-related treats I can buy for my boyfriend. From walking gear to dog bones, there’s so many great treats for the dog mama’s and papa’s out there. If your friends or loved ones are just as obsessed with their dog as we are with Gordon, then this is the gift guide you need to read! 

These are all super fun gifts for dog parents, but if you want something  more practical, then a dog training course could be amazing, or tech to track your dog using GPS, especially if they have a dog who likes to roam! 

Chatham Rope Company dog lead

A Beautifully Crafted Dog Lead

A few days before I wrote this blog post, I managed to lose our favourite dog lead on the beach. Oops! Luckily I had a photo of it from forever ago, so I can show you how beautiful it is. It’s by The Master Ropemakers, who are master ropemakers for boats (here in Kent!) and they make oodles of great products out of nautical rope, including dog leads. I honestly can’t recommend them enough.

Muck Boots

By far the best wellies out there! Muck Boots are brilliant because they are warm, comfortable and really well made. My mum, dad and boyfriend all wear them and you won’t find a better pair of wellies! There are also plenty of different options in terms of lengths, warmth and also industrial options too. 

Dog Treats Jar (Complete With Dog Treats!) 

A few months ago we got given a dog treat Kilner Jar and we loved it so much, we bought a second one! We have one for his biscuits and a second for kibble, it’s nice because it keeps his food locked away and fresh (we keep most of our food in Kilner jars too) and it means that we never get confused between which jars are his and which are ours. Plus the jars are so darn cute! You can buy them at Pet’s At Home and fill them with a box of Bonio’s (or Fish4Dogs, which is Gordon’s current favourite treat!)

Thermal Coffee Cup (Or A Cute Dog Print Mug!) 

Since we got Gordon, our Thermal Coffee Cups (we got ours from our local starbucks, they are about £10 and keep our hot drinks hot!) have become a lifesaver. It’s so nice to go for a morning walk with a hot cup of tea or coffee to keep us cosy on the windy winter beach! Alternatively, you could get them a regular mug with a cute dog motif on, we have this one from Joules and the dog on the front looks a little like Gordon!

A Super Cosy Jumper 

Finally for all those early morning walks and sunday afternoon strolls to a dog-friendly pub, how about a super cosy Barbour jumper? Sure, there’s other jumpers out there, but for the dog walkers, it’s Barbour or nothing! This cable knit jumper is great for men and women and it will keep your loved one warm and happy for months to come! There are plenty of other amazing Barbour treats at Mainline Menswear, from boots to shirts, to gloves and scarves, there are plenty of amazing winter warmers to choose from! 

There we have it my friends, lots of lovely treats for all the dog mama’s and papa’s out there! Have a wonderful christmas everyone!
