It seems that some people would give the world to their pets if they could. Like the dog loving surgeon who is spending £250,000 to turn part of her £1.4m home in Gloucestershire into a luxury den for her two Great Danes. Complete with sheepskin-lined beds and a retina-scanning dog flap.
If you don’t quite fancy the idea of sacrificing the spare room to turn it into a play pad for your mutt mates this festive season then you could just treat your family friend to a well deserved gift.
Dogs can sense that something special is going on when you all gather around the Christmas tree and they like to join in on the fun just like we do. With under a month left until the big day we have come up with some truly inspiring gift ideas to make sure you don’t make a paw impression on your prized pooch. So, if squeaky toys don’t quite seem to do the trick any longer take a good look at our doggy gift wish list - there is sure to be something to get that tail wagging underneath the Christmas tree.

£5 - £15 - Because he’s worth it! now you can give your dog a Lushpuppi home spa with this selection of organic shampoos and spritzes (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate and Petroleum free) which will leave your mucky pup sleek and salon fresh.
£15 - £30 – Give your pooch the gift of health with a Pooch & Mutt Supplement.
