5. Shop gifts from Dogs Trust
Why not purchase a gift for your friends and family from Dogs Trust this Christmas. The one-stop shop has everything from adults to kids, dog themed apparel and homeware to doggie products, treats and toys for your four legged friends.
It even has a personalised products section!
Best of all, all proceeds will go towards helping stray and abandoned dogs across Ireland.
6. Capture your dog with Pawtrait Ireland
If you still haven’t found the right gift for the dog lover in your life, why not give them the gift of a Pawtrait? Whether you want outdoor adventure or a studio shoot, a Pawtrait Experience is specifically tailored to the needs of your Pack.
Why not buy a gift voucher for a loved one and give them an unforgettable experience with their pooch?
For each Experience purchased, a €5 donation goes to our Pawtrait “Charity of Choice“.
This year the charity of choice is The Irish Blue Cross. The donation is made in whole at the end of the year, just in time for Christmas!
If you still haven’t found the right present, or you prefer the gift of giving, why not donate some toys and treats to less fortunate dogs who will spend their Christmas in a shelter or pound.
Dogs Trust, WSPCA and other charities are always happy to receive donations especially coming up to Christmas.
They accept clean beds, blankets, toys, treats (try to stay away from rawhide) and monetary donations.
It is a lovely Christmas present idea. Your own dog would be happy to know you’re helping the less fortunate pups who won’t have a fireplace or a lap to curl up on this Christmas.
I hope you and your pups have a wonderful Christmas.
