Santa Paws is Coming to Town! Surprise Your Pup With Goodies from The Helpful Hound! Review and Giveaway US 12/5

by Jayedee from life in the lost world blog   You know me, I'm always on the lookout for unique items for the furkids. Rarely does a day go by that I'm not surfing the 'net or haunting the aisles in my local pet boutiques for fun and useful items for our merry little band of rescues. Recently, we were blessed with the opportunity to review some wonderful offerings from Helpful Hound, a great little shop on Etsy.

 Begun as a charity fundraising giveaway for the SPCA in Ottawa, Helpful Hound quickly became more than ever expected. Within days owner Krissy Leroux had custom requests that kept her busy for months. She continues to donate to numerous local rescue organizations, and in 2014, expanded this to include 2 English Pointer Rescues based in the USA. Krissy specializes in creating durable & unique Dog Bandanas, Collaramas, Collar bands, Tug Toys, Crate Pads, Pet Bedrolls, Coats and just about any dog item you can dream up! If you don't see exactly what you're looking for, she'll be be happy to create a custom listing. For only $5.00, your item can be customized with machine embroidery for a lasting, beautiful personal touch. Withalmost 100 embroidery colours to choose from, and several fonts available as wel, you're sure to find something to suit your furkids.

 Krissy sent the zoo crew one of her great Tug-A-Roo toys to try, a Christmas themed Bandana & Collarama and a super soft and cushy Pet Bedroll
The attention to detail on all four products is meticulous, something you would expect to find in a very high end boutique.

 The seams are even and finished beautifully, and the fabric used is high quality. The bandanas have washed like a dream with no shrinkage or fading. The Pet Bedroll, which one of our senior rescue cats has claimed as her own, seems to have gotten softer and fluffier after being run through the washer and dryer.

 Cooper, our wild child pitbull, has given the Tug-A-Roo a real workout and hasn't even phased it.

 It does get icky and saliva soaked, but I just toss it in the washer and we're good to go again. No muss, no fuss. We give Helpful Hound a solid five paw rating and hope if you're on the lookout for something a bit out of the ordinary for your furkids this holiday season, that you'll make Helpful Hound one of your shopping destinations!
