Best Christmas Gifts for Dogs 2021


There must be something in the genes as here at The Good Kennel Guide we are noticing a big correlation between people who are mad about Christmas, and people who are mad about dogs. Maybe it is just that we dog lovers don't need a reason to show our love and appreciation of our dogs- every day is a great day when you wake up and go downstairs to be greeted by a dog with a smiling face, just so excited and pleased to see you because......just because....... Dogs, we humans don't deserve them. 

We know our dogs just adore having our love and companionship but just in case you wanted to show some extra special love this Christmas, here are our best finds and Christmas Gifts for Dogs.

Good Dogs. Good Kennels.

The Good Kennel Guide takes the stress out of dog boarding by only listing licensed kennels and boarders who meet the standards required by the Animal Licensing (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) Regulations 2018.

All kennels and boarders that hold a valid licence have a free listing on the website which kennel owners and boarders can “claim” by creating a free account - this allows them to personalise some of their listing and interact with dog owners.

An easy-to-use system for dog owners

The Good Kennel Guide takes the stress out of dog boarding by only listing licensed kennels and boarders who meet the standards required by the Animal Boarding Act 1963.

Dog owners can sign up and create a profile here - it's really simple, and only takes a few moments.

Add your dog to your private profile to submit enquiries to kennel owners and boarders, send messages, and leave reviews following boarding.
