Our Beach Stripe dog collar received a great review in the April edition of Your Dog magazine. Read the full review below! We were delighted that the tester and his dog enjoyed using it. This collar is hand-made in the UK from cotton canvas with a strong webbing core and quality nickel buckle – cool, cheerful and colourful, just like the British seaside!

The ever-popular Union Jack dog bed has just taken on a whole new, more feminine look!!
Made from cerise pink and white faux suede, with a pink fleece underside, this brand new colourway from Creature Clothes is available in small, medium and large sizes. It is hand-made in the UK from top-quality materials.
We like our dog beds to be functional as well as beautiful, and so both the cover (which is zipped) and inners (two 15 tog duvet pads) are machine washable.
One of the best things about dog-ownership is that you can take your dog out and about with you. Cats, rabbits, birds and horses mostly have to stay at home, but dogs love to go with you, wherever you go.
As we are feeling in the holiday mood we thought we’d highlight some of our great summer products:
This dog grooming travel kit has to be sniffed to be believed – fresh, natural scents including rosemary, lavender and peppermint. In this handy re-usable pouch you’ll find anti-itch oatmeal shampoo, fur butter deep conditioner, a de-tangling spritzer and an aromatic mister for smelly-dog emergencies.
Everyone likes a new outfit for their holiday, and we have just what your dog needs to impress the girls (or boys)! How about our Beach stripe fabric dog collars:
For even the shortest trip you need to make sure water is available, and our water bowls will fit a range of activities:
Planet Dog foldable dog travel bowl is a fabric bowl in 2 sizes that is ideal for bags and backpacks. There is also a matching travel food bag, that can be used for food, treats, doggy bags – great for gathering all your dog’s bits & pieces in one place.
The Tazlab Aqua-fur foldable travel dog bowl is flexible, foldable and lightweight, but opens up to look like a traditional bowl, so is ideal for dogs that don’t take to fabric bowls. It’s made from food-grade silicon and comes in some great colours.
If you are travelling any distance by car, the Road Refresher dog bowl can be placed in with your dog and its anti-spill technology means the water stays in the bowl when you corner!
And of course holiday time is fun time, so you’ll need some dog-friendly, hardwearing toys – Katie’s Bumpers tug toys are lightweight, ideal for carrying, and can be used for tugging, throwing and retrieving. Planet Dog’s colourful dog balls are bouncy, chewy and mint-scented, just right for chasing and catching.
Have a great summer!
Chihuahua doesn’t have to be a by-word for every doggy dress and bad-taste dog collar out there. This chic, relaxed little dog exudes comfort and style in his smart leather Flash collar and lead.
With a temperament as complex as its history isn’t it time we cut the ‘sweet doll’ and re-introduced the ‘real dog’ in our attitudes towards this large dog in a small parcel?
Elliott Erwitt is Merry Dogs’ favourite photographer by a country mile – his fantastically wonderful dog photographs capture both the humour and pathos of dogs and their relationships with humans. So, we were excited to hear about the Elliott Erwitt photo caption competition that his publisher teNeues is running, using Twitter. The prize is one of his fabulous books, and the photographer himself is choosing the winner… We’ve already entered our caption for this doggy pic so take a look and get tweeting!
On the road with your mutt this spring? Don’t leave your kennel without our new dog travel bowl. This bowl is nothing like the average fabric travel bowl – in fact, it’s just like a standard dog bowl.
This magic bowl is made from food-grade silicon (like all the smartest baking implements now are), and can be folded up really small.
It is ideal for all dogs on the road, and especially for those that don’t like to drink from fabric bowls. It comes in 4 vibrant colours and holds 1 litre (1.75 pints) of water. Oh, and did we mention you can bake a cake in it??
Most dogs chew, chew, chew – some just for a year or two, some their whole lives through… Despairing owners, shredded bedding, worries about what Fido might or might not have ‘ingested’ (did you know that word before you got a dog?) – the list of problems is endless. Not to mention the ££££s your lovely mutt has munched.
So, do we have a solution? Of course we do!

Ziggy Webb, star of Dragon’s Den, The Alan Titchmarsh Show and Animal Planet’s Top Dog, called into the Merry Dogs studio today sporting his latest collar and lead combo, the Pickles by cool San Fran designers Paco Collars.
Wondering if it’s true that a Paco Collar can change a dog’s life, we asked him how things had been since his latest transformation. A hint of a smile played around his muzzle as he answered, “A star needs to look the part, and that tatty nylon collar just didn’t cut it. Real leather feels great on my fur, and my girls just love it.” And with a wag of the tail and a wiggle of the butt the boy was gone, leaving a sprinkling of stardust drifting in the breeze.
Paco Collars – strength, love, style.

New in stock at Merry Dogs – a range of fabulous dog beds made from vintage Welsh wool blankets, designed by Ben Fogle and Creature Clothes’ Cosi Pole.
Taking a moment from his more adventurous activities, confirmed Labrador fan Ben Fogle teamed up with Creature Clothes to design these beautiful, authentic dog beds. The beds combine modern comforts (they are stuffed with two pieces of 15 tog duvet) with timeless, traditional country style, and the blankets’ rarity means there are only a small number of beds made in each colourway.
