Lead The Walk, an online store for pampered pooches which sell gorgeous luxury clothes and accessories.
Harvey gets really involved in Christmas – he knows that some of the wrapped presents are for him, he loves opening pressies (or more like making me open them for him and watches in excitement), and he loves the atmosphere on the day. He has a roast dinner (doggy friendly of course!) and then lots of cuddles and snuggles throughout the day and an active walk in the evening to tire him out for bed.
Lead The Walk have an awesome selection of cute doggy accessories for pooches of any size – which is why I am so in love with the brand. Most of the time nice collars, jumpers and other lux accessories are made for small dogs – but what about the bigger pups?! Harvey is a medium sized dog and I always struggle to get him cutesy, elegant items – because most companies think that big dogs all need thick leather in brown and black…
There were so many amazing items on Lead The Walk, me and Harvey spent ages looking at what he would like for Christmas and compiled this list, which is full of cute and exciting items suitable for small and large doggies!
We absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the range of beautiful collars which range from classic leather designs to patterned fabric - perfect to suit every dogs personality. Harvey's favourite is the Indigo Dyed Rag Rug Collar by Ike and Stella - it is a logo embossed tan leather collar with a removable blue sleeve made from Indian rag rug! We love it because each collar is 100% hand made n LA and for every collar sold, a $1 goes towards rehoming and welfare of rescue pups in the Bahamas! If we could, we would rehome them all and have cosy snuggles in bed...
We also love the aztec print collar from See Scout Sleep - these collars are hand made in Louisiana using hemp webbing and nylon. The best thing about these collars is that if you have a muddy pooch, you can either hand wash them, or machine wash them if you don't mind a distressed finish!
To go with your new collar, you can pick up one of the fabulous leads - our favourite is the Found My Animal adjustable rope lead in navy - it's so rustic yet stylish! The leads are handcrafted in Brooklyn, NY for adopted animals and their people (I have a lot of time for adopted animals - instead of buying a cute little puppy who will have queues of admirers, I will always adopt a dog from Dogs Trust. Harvey comes from Dogs Trust in Newbury!) the leads are made with marine-grade rope and are able to withstand hundreds of pounds of pull - so you know it will never snap, not even with a little monster on the other end.
Something else that has caught our eye and has been very popular with our doggy pals is the bobble hat - yes, a cute little bobble hat to keep your furry friends head warm and cosy!
Pick up a jumper to go with your wooly bobble hat - sizes actually go up to an XL which is great because the larger doggles can join in the stylish fun! We love the Milk and Pepper Wool Sweater which has cable knit detail and looks like a luxury rustic piece, and the Ware of the Dog Wool Bobble Knit Sweater which has the most adorable knitted bobbles all around it!
If you're on the hunt for presents for dogs, then Lead The Walk is your destination. I am over the moon to have discovered these guys, and I cannot wait to treat Harvey to some gorgeous gear!
