COMPETITIONS


Win 1 of 3 copies of 'Miracle Mutts' ...


Written by Laura Greaves a multi-award-winning journalist, author and proud 'crazy dog lady'. Now a freelance writer, Laura has written for countless dog and pet-specific print and web publications. She's also the author of the collections: Incredible Dog JourneysDogs with Jobs and The Rescuers and more.

A miracle is described as an extraordinary event not explicable by natural or scientific laws. 

She has found and documented these miracles from around the world in Miracle Mutts, a collection of fifteen heart-warming stories of dogs who have survived - and thrived - against all odds.

Dogs are known for their generous hearts, energy and grit. In times of hardship when hope is lost, it’s the underdogs of the world who have the most to teach us. 

Some of the dogs featured include:

Fergus: a Golden Retriever abused and burned only to be rescued and working as a therapy dog for burn survivors.
Jake: a Pit Bull puppy saved from a fire by his firefighter neighbour, and now an honorary fire department mascot.
Guy: a Beagle found malnourished and alone in a forest only to be adopted by Meghan Markle.
Maggie: shot 17 times on the streets of Beirut and blinded, is now providing support to stressed-out students and aged-care residents in the United Kingdom.
Kalu: a brave and strong spirited dog who lost her puppies and three of her legs in a farming accident.
Millie: a disabled Greyhound who became Australia’s first bionic dog.

Miracle Mutts demonstrates the power of compassion and the incredible spirits of dogs in the face of adversity. 

You’ll find impossible survival stories, humans and animals with hearts of gold, and recovery from unimaginable cruelty. As you turn the last page, you’ll find yourself believing in miracles. A brilliant Christmas gift for any dog lover!

#3. PetSafe: Ricochet Electronic Dog Toy & + Automatic Ball Launcher
We have the ultimate entertainment combo for your active dogs this summer with options for both fun indoors and outdoors.

Brand new to Australia, the PetSafe® Ricochet Electronic Dog Toy will give your dog a new type of challenge!

As your dog plays with one of the interactive paired toys, a fun and exciting squeak sound is heard from the other toy. When your furry friend investigates the second toy, the sound bounces back to the first toy. Now, this will "do your dog a confuse!"

Your dog will love trying to find the squeaky sound. While not a chew toy, the Ricochet is durable enough for intense play. When your dog is done for the day, it will automatically turn off after 60 minutes of non-interaction to conserve the battery life. 
The PetSafe® Ricochet is the perfect addition to your dog’s toy box! Valued at $79.95.

An absolute classic, your dog will have a great time playing fetch with the PetSafe® Automatic Ball Launcher


The water-resistant system features 6 angle settings and 9 distance settings to launch standard tennis balls across the yard or house! The adjustable settings launch tennis balls between 2.5 and 9 metres in distance, and up to a 45-degree angle.
A safety sensor is featured at the front of the Ball Launcher. This postpones the release of the ball until your dog is at least 2 metres away. Valued at $199.95.

One lucky winner will walk away with both prizes (total prize pool $280).

We're very excited about the launch of Sure Petcare's SureFeed® Microchip Pet Feeder Connect and you will be too when you discover what it can do for your pet!

This is definitely one of the best pet tech gadgets we have come across in the past four years but it is also incredibly useful for a pet owner (ideal for small dogs or cats).

Easy to set up, this smart feeder will monitor how much and when your pet eats and will send real-time notifications directly to your smartphone via the free Sure Petcare app. This product also features integrated scales, which means you can deliver an accurate food portion at every meal. 
This is a must-have for the many households where pets are on either prescription diets or weight management programs. You can feed your pet any type of diet: dry, wet or raw or a mix using the half bowls configuration.

Over time, the app will gather comprehensive data about your dog's unique feeding patterns, making it easier to spot any changes in their health and well-being early on.

The SureFeed® Microchip Pet Feeder Connect uses your pet’s identification microchip (or Sure Petcare collar tag which is provided), as a unique “key”, allowing only the authorised pet to access the food in the bowl

You can give friends, family and pet sitters access to the Sure Petcare app so that you can see your pet is being properly fed whilst you are away. There are so many cool features, you'll need to watch this video!

 

** Win a SureFeed® Microchip Pet Feeder Connect & Hub **
(Total Prize Value*: $348)


Your Prize* will include:
✔️ SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Connect 
✔️ 1 x single food type bowl and bowl supports 
✔️ 2 x half bowls and bowl supports (to be used together when feeding two different types of food) 
✔️ 1 x mat (to collect food spills) 
✔️ 1 x Sure Petcare RFID Collar Tag (for non-microchipped pets) 
 
✔️ Sure Petcare Hub to connect the SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Connect with the Sure Petcare app (free to download on the App store or Google Play). Also compatible with the SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect and Microchip Pet Door Connect.

Dogs just like cats are heat-seeking missiles who usually make a beeline for any blankets, heaters or open fires in winter! 

If you have a hairless dog, a puppy, a senior dog or one suffering from medical conditions like arthritis, it's even more essential to keep them warm and comfortable throughout winter.

A great option is to provide them with their own heated pad like the Original Pet-Mat™ which is using the latest in Positive Temperature Coefficient Technology.

The 
Pet-Mat™ is designed to reach a maximum temperature of 40 degrees Celsius whether it is covered or not. In reality, a more practical heat rise of 20-30 degrees Celsius is usually maintained above ambient conditions. 
Since the Pet-Mat™ works on dynamic heat transfer, it should maintain a temperature slightly warm to the touch until body contact is made. It is simply impossible for it to ever overheat ensuring a consistently comfortable use for your pet, even if left on 24/7.

To clean your 
Pet-Mat™ you can wash it under running water or just wipe it off with a damp washer.

Raise your paws for a good cause: RSCPA Million Paws Walk is coming!

If you don't have your 2019 tickets yet, this is your chance to join the nation’s walk to fight animal cruelty as we have 3 Family Passes (2 adults + 2 children) to give away to NSW dog lovers.

A patter of a million paws will hit pavements on Sunday 19th May 2019, which also marks the 25th anniversary of Australia’s biggest doggy day out – RSPCA’s Million Paws Walk.
The animal welfare charity’s largest annual fundraiser will take place in 75 locations across Australia to raise funds to help end animal cruelty.

In Sydney, a guest list of 8,000 four-legged friends and 6,000 owners are expected to show their support on the day.

“The Million Paws Walk brings people and pups together to raise money to help end animal cruelty,” says RSPCA NSW Acting Community Fundraising Manager Danielle Cameron.
“It’s also a fantastic day out filled with colour, dogs of every shape, breed and size imaginable, plenty of fun activities and prizes, and wonderful people who are all there to support an incredibly worthy mission – saving the lives of injured, sick and neglected animals.”

This year’s theme at Sydney Olympic Park is ‘Garden Party’ and guests are encouraged whip out their garden party frocks and finery. Expect lots of gingham, picnic rugs, picnic benches, bunting and flags. There will be competitions and prizes for the cutest dogs, the best owner and dog look-a-likes, best doggy tricks, stalls, music, entertainment, grooming stations and food trucks.



*** Win 1 of 3 Family Passes (valued at $70 each) ***

The money raised will keep RSPCA rescue shelters operating and inspectors on the road investigating cruelty cases. It will provide for community education programs and services to break cycles of abuse and neglect.

Owning a custom painting of your dog is very special. These paintings are absolutely personal to you expressing your pet's beauty.

"An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language." Martin Buber

When artist Christine Gresham from The Art of Christine paints your dog's eyes, she strives to capture their soul and “light” from within. The whole process begins with you texting or emailing your favourite photos, making you part of the creative process. Christine also specialises in your Rainbow Bridge furbaby portrait, which will bring tears of joy and comfort to their “pawrents”.

Christine’s dog portraits are hand painted in Pastel on Pastel Paper. The finished portrait is then mailed through Australia Post. We thought this would be the perfect Valentine's Day present for the dog lover in your life or yourself!

It's hot hot hot! So what better thing to do than grab your dog(s) and head to the beach or the nearest water hole to cool off? But you wouldn't grab any old towel from the cupboard for your furry best friend, would you?

Growl Towels is a Sunshine Coast business who design a whole range of fun towels for the beach, bath time plus dog accessories.

One of our favourites is their "Loyal to the Bone" beach towel, a colourful super soft 100% cotton beach towel for dog lovers and their dogs. You may have to toss a coin to decide who gets to use it in your house!

The "Bone" design features on the velour side which is cosy on your skin with terry on the other side for drying off in no time.

Need more space to dry off in style? The Circle of Love Roundie from Growl Towels has got you covered ...

Love your dog walks but have a pooch who always decides it's time to 'do the business' right at the start, leaving you dangling an unsightly and smelly dog waste bag, trying to find a bin? We've all been there and it's not fun ...  

Luckily for us, Aussie business Wag and Me came up with this versatile and aesthetic solution to 'take care of business every day and in every way'!

The Poochette from Wag and Me is a multi-purpose light and compact 5-in-1 dog walking bag with multiple storage compartments. 

  • Its primary function is to both dispense dog waste bags and dispose of your dog waste by hiding it within an insulated compartment. No one will ever know!
  • The lead can come off completely so you can also attach the bag around your normal belt loops to create an insulated treat bag

With an unforgettable cast of canine personalities and the dedicated individuals who work with them, Pick of the Litter in cinemas on January 10 is an uplifting, bighearted celebration of the unique bond between humans and dogs.

Meet Patriot, Potomac, Primrose, Poppet, and Phil — five determined puppies who, from the moment they’re born, begin an incredible journey to become guide dogs for the blind. It’s a rigorous two-year process that will take them from the care of selfless foster volunteers to specialised trainers to - if they make the cut - a lifelong human companion.

At every step of the way, the puppies will be tested, challenged, and evaluated. But not just any dog makes it all the way to graduation, and only the best of the best will make the cut — who has what it takes to be the pick of the litter?

    Tired of wrestling with your reluctant dog at bath time? Would you like to able to keep your dog (and your house) smelling clean and fresh this Spring?


    Thanks to the BISSELL BarkBath Tool there is now a faster, easier and less messy way to thoroughly wash your dog virtually anywhere! This attachment connects to a BISSELL SpotClean (portable carpet shampooer).

    The specially designed nozzles get beneath the fur and down to the skin to allow water and shampoo to wash the skin clean while a soft suction pulls dirt and water away to a separate dirty water tank. 
    The system works with almost any length of fur, short or long, whilst the no-rinse shampoo formula leaves your dog's coat feeling clean and fresh.

    As well as being convenient, the BISSELL BarkBath Tool can save huge amounts of water as well. You only need 1.2 litres of water to adequately clean a 36kg dog that otherwise would need almost full bathtub to clean properly!

    Our friends at BISSELL Oceania have also thrown in a full Accessory Pack which includes a BISSELL cooler bag, a pair of pet nail clippers and a grooming brush valued at $70.

    Starring Will ArnettChris "Ludacris" BridgesNatasha LyonneJordin SparksGabriel IglesiasShaquille O'NealAlan Cumming, and Stanley Tucci, Show Dogs is a family comedy (rated PG) about the unlikely pairing of a human detective (Arnett) and his canine partner (voice of Chris "Ludacris" Bridges), who has to go undercover at the world's most exclusive dog show to solve his biggest 
    case yet.

    We don't want to give away the plot but here's a short synopsis ...

    "After a failed attempt to recover a stolen baby panda, Canine Officer Max, a rugged, lone wolf Rottweiler must reluctantly team up with Frank, a human FBI Agent, and go undercover at the site of the thieves’ next target: the renowned Canini Invitational Dog Show in Las Vegas – the pinnacle of dog shows.


    These two loners find themselves strangers in a land of doggie pedicures, Botox, Brazilian waxes and gold-plated fire hydrants. If they hope to rescue the baby panda and crack the case, they must set aside their old ways and learn to work as partners."

    Kobe the Pyr is an entrepreneurial Sydney-based Pyrenean Mountain Dog who created Kotes by Kobe out of his desire to help his fellow pups stay warm, by giving them the coat off his back! All products contain recycled dog fur donated by dogs who no longer need it. 

    Made from a specially commissioned yarn, the Mally Knit Kote is the first of its kind in Australia, featuring a luxurious blend of Alaskan Malamute fur, merino and Corriedale wool, with a touch of nylon for durability. 

    The knit fabric is sewn against a viscose lining for extra softness against your pup’s skin. 

    Each Mally Knit Kote has multiple snap presses on the belt and neck, so you can pick the best fit for your pup’s body shape. 

    Dog fur being up to 80% warmer than wool, not only are Kotes a sustainable product, they’ll keep your pup fashionably toasty throughout winter!



    For each Mally Knit Kote purchased, Kotes by Kobe will donate $10 to Alaskan Malamute Rehoming Aid Australia, whose pups kindly donated fur for this range. 



    To ensure your pooch stays warm this winter, Kobe is giving you the chance to win one of his creations!


    * WIN 1 x Mally Knit Kote (valued at $150)

      WIN 1 of 4 Puppy Packs
      thanks to Aussie Dog Products !!!
      We're celebrating National Puppy Day this Friday 23rd March and it's a special day to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives!

      To spoil your furry bundle of joy (and save some of your precious belongings), we teamed up with Aussie Dog Products for your chance to win some of their most popular toys. 

      The Aussie Dog Puppy Pack is a fantastic start point for your new best friend offering both interactive and alone play products. Interactive play products include a Catch Ball, a Get…It and a Ringathong. For alone play and to help take their minds off teething, you also get a Tucker Ball

      You can follow Aussie Dog Products on Facebook and @aussie_dog_products on Instagram.

      WIN 1 of 4 Puppy Packs, each containing:
      • 1 x Tucker Ball
      The Aussie Dog Tucker Ball is the tough yellow ball that keeps on giving. Place dry treats inside to provide hours of self entertainment for your best friend. As the ball rotates, it will randomly dispense the dry food. Even when empty, the rattle will continue to provide stimulation. The correct size will be based on your puppy's weight and jaw size.
      • 1 x Slapathong
      Originally called the Slapathong, the Aussie Dog Get… It is the perfect toy for interactive fetch games. Sticks splinter and cause injury to your dog’s teeth and gums so leave the sticks for the fire! The Get… It floats on water, is machine washable, constructed from durable fire hose material and, most importantly, will not cause any harm to your best friend. The small size is designed for small to medium dogs 5kg to 30kg.
      • 1 x Catch Ball Blue
      The Aussie Dog Catch Ball is great for interactive fetch games with your new puppy. Unlike a tennis ball, the nodules make the ball easier for your best friend to pick up and, most importantly, prevents choking or blockage to airways. The blue ball floats on water and is softer than the red version. 
      • 1 x Ringathong
      The small Ringathong is another interactive toy which is exclusive to the Aussie Dog Puppy Packs.

      thanks to Pan Macmillan Australia!!!

      The specially designed nozzles get beneath the fur and down to the skin to allow water and shampoo to wash the skin clean while a soft suction pulls dirt and water away into a separate dirty water tank. 


      Bathe your pet practically anywhere and anytime with virtually no mess! Click here to see it in action.
