A review and giveaway of Meg Heath bespoke dog leads and collars

She’s the perfect running companion and a fabulous playmate for both Pluto and the girls. She knows basic commands and always comes when she’s called. Her beautiful nature is likely to be due to her breed – she’s a crossbreed but mainly Staffordshire bull terrier. And along with the incredible attributes her breed possess, she has also inherited the one bad habit. She pulls terribly on the lead. So did I want…

Not just because of the inconvenience of finding someone we trust to look after them, but because they’re part of the family.

So when Harringtons contacted us and asked if we’d like to throw the dogs a party, I thought it was a brilliant idea! This afternoon while the girls were having a nap, there was a knock at the door. Bubbles has a sixth sense for when a delivery is for…
