Take your pooch, shop, eat and have fun
Dogs love a day out! Who wants to be cooped up in a backyard much of their lives? Therefore, dogs are also covered for having fun leading up to the Christmas period.
Dogs give you unconditional love and if possible, will love you even more if you take them to events such as the following list of four!
