Ultimutt Holiday Gift Guide for Dogs and their Pawrents

Last Updated: November 04, 2022

Here at Paws Friendly, we are absolutely mad about all things dog friendly, whether it be finding new coffee shops with canine menus, or hotels that welcome our pups with the red carpet treatment. We know that days out are better with the entire family in tow and that no furry friend should be left behind.

This holiday season, we have put together our first Paws Approved Ultimutt Holiday Gift Guide for Dogs and their Pawrents

There are gifts for the exPAWer, the PAWsionista, the PAWluencer, the foodie, stocking stuffer ideas, and even some gifts for those crazy mother puppers and proud dog dads in your life.

We have reached out to small businesses across Ireland, the UK, Europe, and beyond to put together a list of the best gifts for the pooches.

This everyday dog harness is padded, easy for dog owners to put on, and most importantly, comfortable for dogs to wear. A key piece of gear for any pups heading off on a day of exploring and adventure with their paw-rents. It has two leash attachment options, an aluminum V-ring centered on the dog's back for everyday walks, and reinforced front clip webbing at the dog's chest to redirect dogs that pull. The ID pocket keeps dog tags easily accessible (and quiet) and the reflective trim and light loop boosts visibility in low-light conditions.
