 When we received this through the post our first reaction was ‘WOW’ and just by looking at the Toy Box you can understand why this is at the top of our list.  Not only is the Toy Box completely aesthetically pleasing and adorable but also completely practical for any pet-owner! 

Handmade in the UK from solid wood, this Toy Box can become a stunning feature to your home.  It’s beautiful shabby Driftwood style evokes images of coastal walks along the beach with your four-legged friend, and it even has little pebble paw prints decorating it!

Every single Toy Box is unique and no two are completely alike.  The Bone shaped plaque on the front of the Toy Box can be customised with your choice of wordings and names – making it the ultimate personal gift for your pooch this Christmas!




This truly is our ULTI'MUTT Pet Product for 2017 and would recommend to anybody who is looking for something simple yet quirky!

2.  Ruffle Train ’n’ Treat Ball from Ruffle Snuffle 

 Your dogs will go 'head over tail' for this handmade toy!

 The Train ’n’ Treat Ball is made from a lovely fleece material that is warn and cosy for this time of year! It is great to use as a reward toy as you can pop in a couple of treats and then throw for your pet to chase. 

Alfie is a bit of a chewer, so I was extremely pleased to see how extremely strong the material was and that there was no breakage whatsoever, even after over a week!  Being machine washable is also an added bonus for all pet-owners!

3. Caitec Chase ‘n Chomp Sticky Bone From Ruff Shop 

Paw'fect for dogs who love food and love to play!




The Chase ‘n Chomp is a toy of dreams for a Dog like Alfie who loves food and loves to play – and this toy offers both!   A central hole in the middle of the toy as well as the grooves at both ends allows you to stuff your dog’s favourite treat inside to keep him/her busy!

This toy will do wonders for Pet Groomers, Owners and Veterinary Clinics!  The bone can be stuck to any flat, hard surface e.g. floors, walls and windows to keep your dog distracted from whatever may be occurring.

This Jute donut shaker toy is 24cm in diameter, made with multiple layers of natural Jute fabric and inserted with coconut fibre rope making it tough and safe for chewers like Alfie!  

Being Eco-friendly, durable and bio-degradable, this natural toy was helping to look after Alfie’s teeth while he was busy playing and chewing.
