KLAUS’S HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE
Our founder Klaus @klausofpoms put together some last minute holiday gifts for 2021- this year his focus is on some up and coming little Canadian companies he’s watching or Woof the North worked with this year—and definitely watch for his Favourite Things at the end of the year.
Wooden Wag Tags
A little Etsy Ontario shop with handpainted artwork tags – even custom portraits of your pets, painted using your photos, or other customized artistic tags ( winter, themes and more !) all sealed in resin for long lasting wear.
A Toronto Etsy shop with the cutest handstamped Christmas and winter themed dog tags ( in colour gingerbread and words, snowflakes and Santa’s) that have cute matching bandanas available. Also has key chains for dog parents and even handstamped tags for horses!
Sleepy Holow Dog Collars
The most beautiful artisan dog collars in a variety of custom combinations personalized to your dog. These handcrafted leather collars with stamping, custom inlays, custom carving, blinged out or not, hand beaded wonders are the ultimate in artisan collars.

BANDANAS AND COLLARS

Basic Bee Boutique
This British Columbia company burst on the scene with sparkle and great style.

There are also plaid dog scarves, faux fur collars, print bows and bandanas for furry girls and boys. But hurry- the Pawliday Collection will sell out soon.
Also carried at Rens Pets; Costco USA and more, this Canadian company offers great seasonal sweaters,summer attire, coats and more.
