Santa Paws is coming to a town near you!

I believe in Santa Paws…… It’s true, I have the nickname of the “Christmas Fairy” in my household and I love this time of the year! I love seeing the little magic around as the Christmas decorations go up, the fires get lit and we hopefully start feeling a little festive!

This year however may be a struggle for some dog (pet) owners due to the cost of living crisis that is still hitting people quite hard. It is good to remember that your dog doesn’t know it is Christmas, doesn’t know what Christmas is about and if you haven’t the money to spend on your dog this Christmas it really doesn’t matter.

With this in mind I decided for our Christmas blog this year to not just showcase the wonderful gift options we have for dogs & their humans, but to also share some simple ways you can bring a bit of Christmas magic to your dog even if you are on a budget!

First up we have some top recipes from Vicky at Storm’s Raw Emporium. These recipes are designed to use things you may have in your kitchen over Christmas to make some extra special treats for your dog! We’d love to hear from you if you do use the recipes below!
