Sleep Health Week, running from September 25 to October 1, is a reminder to take the time to take a closer look at our dogs' sleep health – with a theme this year of “Better Sleep, Better Health”!

For this reason we teamed up with Australian-designed and Australian-made STAN Pet Beds 
(previously Henry Hottie bed) founded 13 years ago by animal lover Michelle and inspired by her beloved dog Stanley.

Quality sleeps sets the foundation for our dogs' level of cognitive health (thinking/decision making capacity), physical recovery from activity, illness or injury, and their overall ability to cope with life in a human world.

"The idea of safe, clean, purposeful beds for our pets really is the foundation for a health and wellbeing plan. 
"By providing a space for deep relaxation we help our animals heal, restore emotional, mental and physical strength, and energetically help raise their vibration." explains Michelle.
The development of a STAN Pet Bed, the design and documented benefit, resulted in a patent in 2019. STAN Pet Beds are the only patented therapeutic, non-toxic Australian-made pet bed in the world.

We're offering you the chance to win an eco-friendly Active Dog Bed, complete with Oeko Eco Linen Cover with a choice of 5 colours (Natural, Peacock, Navy, Mustard or Grey Marle) and 3 sizes (Medium, Large & Extra Large).

✔️ Designed for the young active dog who plays, works or competes with intensity. Offering full body support and patented therapeutic non-toxic fibres to help warm down muscles and joints as they rest and recover.





✔️ Patented thermally-bonded fibres function as conduits, transferring a species-appropriate temperature throughout the bed, localising around the area’s of the dogs body pressing into the mattress. The subtle temperature encourages blood flow to these areas providing oxygen, minerals and nutrients required to assist healing and reduce the discomfort of inflammation.

✔️ The beds are thermoregulating, meaning your dog will not overheat.

This model is the perfect bed for the growing canine.

NB: ACTIVE Dog Beds are also available in Cotton Drill or Organic Hemp covers.

Other STAN Pet Beds may be better suited to your dog's needs:
Will the Brittany Spaniel is a big fan and owns both an Active Dog Bed and a Senior Dog Bed!




  • The SENIOR Dog Bed is designed for ageing bodies and those canines experiencing early onset arthritis and other types of degenerative disease.
  • The ROYALE Dog Bed combines the best features and benefits of the entire range. Designed to support larger breeds and canines from 30kg to 100kgs. This is the largest bed at 18cm high to accommodate and support the heavier breeds who generally see muscles and joints age faster.

August 26 is World Dog Day so how will you spoil yours? 

We teamed up with Ziippup - Australia’s first dog lead with a built-in poo bag holder. The leads are designed in Sydney and made using recycled plastic bottles.

This is your chance to get your paws on new dog walking gear just in time for Spring!

When Founder Annelie got her Staffy Ebba in 2021, she was overwhelmed by all the dog stuff she supposedly needed (poo bag holders, treat bags, ball throwers, raincoats) and surprised by the lack of sustainable dog gear. She thought there must be a better option, but there wasn't - so she designed one.

With the Ziippup lead you can finally say goodbye to dangly poo bag holders! The all-in-one design lets you store a full standard sized roll of poo bags directly on the lead. The poo bag holder is stretchy and suitable for waste bags, dog treats, keys and even your AirPods.

To celebrate its official release on August 2, we teamed up with Simon & Schuster Australia for your chance to Win 1 of 5 copies of Sit, Stay, Love - a sizzling romance novel for dog lovers by Australian author Amy Hutton.

Sit, Stay, Love is the most uplifting rom-com you’ll read this year – a fresh take on the friends-to-lovers trope, brimming with heart, joy and puppies!

Sera loves owning a pet shelter – even if it’s often tricky to make ends meet, and her mother thinks she's wasting her life. Thankfully, she can always rely on her steadfast best friend, Toby, who just happens to be the local vet.

And then famous actor Ethan James enters the scene. After Sera 'saves' Ethan from a friendly German Shepherd, he confesses to a terrible fear of dogs. A canine co-star is all that stands between Ethan and the role of a lifetime – and he wants Sera to help him overcome his fear. As they bumble through a series of training sessions together, sparks fly and Sera's surprised to find herself falling for Ethan. But not half as surprised as she is when Toby starts acting like a jealous boyfriend.

Now Sera's juggling six dogs, a litter of kittens, a horse, a sheep, and two men intent on outdoing each other. But she'll have to figure out what her heart truly wants... before her life goes completely to the dogs.

Trade Paperback: 320 pages. Also available as eBook.

We know many dog owners struggle with trimming their dogs' nails so to celebrate National Pawrents Day on Sunday 23rd July 2023, we teamed up with Australian business DiggerDog Nail File to give you the chance to win one of their life-changing innovations!

Are you one of the many dog owners struggling to trim your dog’s front nails?

For Irena Votavova of Melbourne, such a struggle with her Doberman Zana was the inspiration for her new product, the DiggerDog Nail File, an incredibly simple and natural way to trim your dog’s more problematic nails on the front paws. 

After yet another traumatic experience at the vet's, an idea came to her watching her dog burying her daily bones only to dig them back up a few days later... She noticed that the nails on her front paws were trimmed shorter as she had given herself a "paw-dicure"!

After testing and prototyping her invention to make sure that it was safestablestrong and most of all worked, she launched the 
DiggerDog Nail File, a nail-trimming device that makes the trimming of your dog’s front nails easy and fun for both dog and owner. 

The major difference from other devices is that your dog does its own nail trimming, instead of being subjected to this often-stressful procedure.

✔️ Invented, designed and made in Australia.

✔️ Uses Australian stainless steel plate that will not rust and should last a lifetime.

✔️ great alternative for dogs that do not like nail grinders or clippers.

✔️ Gentle to use with dogs of any age or breed.

How does the DiggerDog Nail File work?

The pet owner places a treat inside the food compartment. The dog quickly gets the idea and digs on the surface to get at the treat. Your dog will soon understand ‘the game’ and be eager to participate. 

A repeat of this simple action on the rough surface of the DiggerDog Nail File is all it takes to trim the dog’s nails. Nail trimming will now change from a stressful task to a fun game which you and your dog will look forward to.

All you will need is a little bit of patience and a quiet environment to teach your dog how to use the DiggerDog Nail File but it is fairly simple.

Miniature Labradoodle 'Pablo' getting the hang of it, trying to open the compartment



1. Use your dog’s favourite treats and put a few in the compartment in front of them.

2. Slide the lid open and let them eat a few so that they start equating the Nail File with food rewards.

3. Reduce to one treat and start leaving the sliding lid ajar so that they can just see it. 
They should then attempt to touch or scratch this area to obtain a treat and you must reward them immediately.

4. Depending on the dog, they will soon realise that scratching the Nail File even when the lid is closed yields him a treat and you should encourage your dog to scratch daily to embed this concept. 

If you can't wait to try it and don't want to leave it chance, simply use the code ADLCOMP to receive $20 off and free shipping, saving $40 but hurry as this is a limited time offer! Visit www.diggerdognailfile.com

The Nosy Detectives Agency is like no other. For a start, one of the detectives is a dog called Monty, a rescued Golden Retriever with a heart of gold and a super-smart nose. 

Rose Sidebottom, an ex-copper, has an uncanny ability to know when a suspect is lying. And Ollie Fernsby is a teenage super-geek and inventor of the rat-cam. They make a great team. There is just one problem - no clients. 

Then one day, Phyllis O'Neal, a grumpy grandmother from the village of Nether Wallop, offers them an unsolved cold case they can't refuse - who really lit the fire that killed Tony and Marie Toyne?

The surviving son and only witness, Finn, hasn't spoken since that terrible night. Monty sets out to locate a forgotten second witness, a dog called Panda, who might recognise the arsonist if she had a good sniff. The tricky case gets harder when Rose is distracted by a handsome fire-scene investigator. 

Can Monty get Rose back on track? Is Tiffany the giant cat friend or foe? And why is the whole village lying about the night of the fire? Can the Nosy Detectives solve the pawfect murder?

About the Author 

British-born mystery author, Louisa Bennet, studied Literature at the University of London and went on to learn Canine Linguistics from her Golden Retriever, Pickles, which is how she discovered what dogs really get up to when we’re not around. Truth be told, Pickles came up with the story for the Monty And Sidebottom Mysteries, and Louisa just transcribed it. She’s faster on the keyboard and less easily distracted by food and passing squirrels. 

She divides her time between London and Sydney, Australia, and runs courses on crime fiction and creative writing. Pickles runs courses on wee-mailing, duck toppling and drool management.

Our Malinois Aramis & Porthos and our cat Arya are heat-seeking missiles at this time of year and will claim 'first dibs' on our couch or the bed! On those frosty winter mornings and early nights, we never seem to have enough mats, blankets or heating!

But when you’re looking for a safe and cost effective way to keep your pets warm this year, check out Pet Mat™. It’s an easy way to provide on-demand warmth for your dog/s all winter!

Pet Mat™ uses a unique touch-activated technology that warms only when the pet is on the mat. It heats within 5 minutes of contact, and cools when the pet moves on. Your pooch can come and go and always has warm place to come back to.




With very low energy consumption, Pet Mat™ is an eco-friendly and economical pet heating solution too. You can run Pet Mat™ 24/7 with similar energy use as a computer on screensaver. With rising electricity costs, it’s a smart choice this winter.

No need to worry about overheating either. Pet Mat™ will warm between 20-30 degrees above room temperature with a maximum range of 40 degrees. It’s easy to clean, easy to store and when properly cared for, can be used year in and year out.

Whether you care for one puppy or an entire litter, a senior dog suffering from osteoarthritis or a chronic illness, or your pet is recovering from an injury, it is essential to keep them warm and comfortable throughout the colder months.

To celebrate its official release on April 18, we teamed up with Penguin Books Australia for your chance to Win 1 of 3 copies of The Wonderful Thing About Phoenix Rose by Australian author Josephine Moon, her most heart-warming tale yet!

Phoenix Rose, a 35-year-old neurodivergent teacher, is at a crossroads in her career and in her relationship with her boyfriend, Zack. But when she receives an urgent plea from a friend in Tasmania who needs to rehome her beloved animals, Phoenix, who has always led with her heart, spontaneously decides to help. 

Author Josephine Moon Credit: Anastasia Kariofyllidis



When she suddenly finds herself the custodian of an eccentric dog, two cats, a clutch of chickens and a geriatric pony, she makes another snap decision – to provide a new home for them all herself. The trouble is, she will have to drive the menagerie all the way back to Brisbane in time to return to Zack and her job – and she cannot do it alone.

She enlists the help of Lily – a colourful younger woman who is also neurodivergent – as well as resourceful members of their online community. Together the new friends must navigate unexpected twists, setbacks and moments of heartbreak and triumph as they both move towards a new identity and understanding of themselves.

The Wonderful Thing about Phoenix Rose is a joyful and moving tale of a woman’s commitment to fulfilling a friend’s dying wish, while finding her own inner strength and power and sharing it with others along the way.

Canine Fitness & Rehabilitation Australia the official distributor for FitPAWS® and Blue-9 Pet Products, aims to provide the best quality products and equipment for the fitness, exercise and rehabilitation of our canine friends.

Instability training is a fun way to bond with your dogteach them a new behaviour and strengthen their core - which is the powerhouse of your dog's body.

And if your dog competes in any dog sports - AgilityDock DogsCanine DiscFlyball, Obedience, Freestyle, Treibball etc - you’ll want to make sure he/she is in prime physical condition!





The FitPAWS® TRAX™ Donut Ball is a uniquely-shaped inflatable fitness ball designed specifically for dogs. Its flattened base offers more stability than other inflatables. With your assistance, your dog can learn to stand, sit, lay, side step and perform other beneficial exercises.

Subtle movement of the Donut under your dog’s weight causes a shift in your dog’s centre of gravity. Your dog will naturally try and maintain balance, causing the muscles to engage and strengthen. It’s that simple.

Fun fitness training with a FitPAWS® TRAX™ Donut Ball is also a great way to build your dog's confidence, improve their fitness and focus their attention! 

FitPAWS® TRAX™ Donut Main Features:

✔️ Special TRAX™ Design Provides Superior Grip and Stability

✔️ New TRAX™ Surface Prevents Slipping and Provides Neurosensory Stimulation

✔️ New Burst-Resistant to 300 lbs. – Provides Safe Balance Platform for Conditioning and Rehabilitation Exercises. Designed to deflate slowly if punctured.

✔️ Inflation Pump Included

✔️ The new Trax Donut was engineered to be a bit smaller than the previous donut to increase the challenge and improve results while maintaining the same functionality.  *product can slightly vary in size and colour

Expand your dog’s playground with their own FitPAWS® indoor equipment!

A strong core is the powerhouse between front and rear body movement. If you are a dog, it helps you when you sit up, stand up, run, turn, twist, jump and play. Too hot, too cold or wet to walk your dog outside?

Win a PetSafe® Streamside Pet Fountain or an Eatwell Automatic Pet Feeder or 1 of 2 Chilly Penguin Freezer Toys!

We may be about to wrap up Pet Hydration Month however from experience we record much higher temps in February, so with everyone heading back to school or work, this is the perfect time to get your paws on a PetSafe® Streamside Ceramic Pet Fountain and other fantastic prizes to make life easier.


Your pet needs to drink 70ml of water per 1kg of body weight every day.

Both our dogs and cats are attracted to flowing water.

Pet fountains continuously provide your pets with fresh, filtered water encouraging them to drink more water and more often!


The quiet design of this fountain causes the water to softly bubble over (as opposed to a free-falling stream), which allows shy or timid pets to feel comfortable approaching the fountain. 
The 360-degree design allows your pet to drink from the fountain from any angle!

The fountain uses a pump, carbon filter and foam filter that work together to remove pet hair, saliva and bad tastes from the water, so they always have clean water to drink. 

#1. Prize: PetSafe® Streamside Ceramic Fountain (RRP: $128.99)

✔️ 
1-8 litre water capacity makes it perfect for small dogs
✔️ Whisper-quiet bubbling water flow is great for picky or shy pets
✔️ High-quality, scratch-resistant ceramic is hygienic and guaranteed free of heavy metals
✔️ 360-degree design lets your cat drink water from all sides
✔️ Stylish, modern design blends in with your home décor
✔️ Compact size is perfect for small spaces
✔️ Dual filtration removes pet hair, debris, bad tastes and odours
✔️ Top-rack dishwasher safe for easy clean-up; hand wash the pump separately
✔️ Uses Charcoal Filter (PAC19-14088), Foam Filter (PAC19-14089) and Replacement Pump (PAC00-13184)

#2. Prize: PetSafe® Eatwell 5 Meal Pet Feeder (RRP: $117.19)

The 5 Meal Pet Feeder serves up to 5 meals, snacks or treats per day at the right time!

One meal is ready-to-eat as soon as you fill the tray with your pet’s food, then simply schedule the other 4 meals to be served at a later time. Setting up mealtimes is quick and easy. Use the digital timer to schedule each meal down to the minute. Once you set the schedule, the feeder will feed your pet at the same time every day, so you don’t have to set a new schedule daily. When it’s time for your pet’s next meal, the tray will automatically rotate to the next section.

Each tray section holds 1 cup (236 ml) of dry or semi-moist food and treats too! The size of each compartment allows you to fill the tray with any size kibble, jerky pieces or freeze-dried treats.

If you have a pet, who tends to eat dinner like it’s a race, use this automatic dog and cat feeder to divide their meals into smaller portions over a short amount of time. 


#3. Prize: Freezable Treat Holding Chilly Penguin (RRP: Small 10.59 or Medium/Large $17.19)


The PetSafe® Freezable Treat Holding Chilly Penguin is, hands down, the coolest way to eat a treat.

If your dog needs a slow-feed option for eating wet food, this freezer toy slows down dinnertime while adding fun. 

And if you need to keep your dog occupied while you’re away, you can also use this freezer dog treat toy to freeze chicken broth, yoghurt etc to help your dog savour his snacks for a lot longer.

The Chilly Penguin is a yummy cool-down for those hot days! 

Key Features:

✔️ Hollow snowflake shape holds frozen treats
✔️ Stands up to tough chewers
✔️ Round base wobbles to give pets a fun challenge
✔️ Durable, vanilla-scented rubber
✔️ Dishwasher safe, top rack only

*** Win a PetSafe® Streamside Ceramic Pet Fountain or Eatwell 5-Meal Feeder or 1 of 2 Treat Holding Chilly Penguins ***

From the internationally bestselling author of A Dog's Purpose and A Dog's Way Home comes Love, Clancy: Diary of a Good Dog, a deeply moving story with a brand new cast of characters, including one very good dog.

You’ve probably never met someone like Clancy. He’s keeping a diary, he’s falling in love, there are rivals for his affections, he lives with his best friend and his worst enemy – even taken together, these factors are maybe not that unusual, except that Clancy is a dog. His point of view is therefore perhaps . . . different.

Told in W. Bruce Cameron’s signature style, a tremendous cast of wonderful characters find themselves jointly and separately navigating the challenges of life, of love, and . . . other pets, including Clancy's “worst enemy” - one very disdainful cat. 


It’s a lot to keep track of, especially when things start to spin hilariously out of control, but fortunately, we’ve got the observations of Clancy, a very good dog, who shares a valuable perspective on what is really important.

About the Author:

W. Bruce Cameron is the New York Times bestselling author of 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, which was turned into a hit television series. He is the bestselling author of A Dog’s Purpose (now a major motion picture), A Dog’s JourneyThe Dog MasterThe Dogs of Christmas and The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man

He has twice been voted the number one best humour columnist by the National Society of Newspaper Columnists, and his nationally syndicated column in the US is read by more than three million readers every week. He lives in California.

Paperback, 336 pages
Publisher: Pan Macmillan, Imprint: Pan, 10th January 2023

RRP: $22.99. Pre-order from all good bookstores and online retailers.

 Win 1 of 5 copies of Lionel and Me by Corinne Fenton & Tracie Grimwood


It wouldn't be Christmas without a big pile of books under the Christmas tree, one of the best gifts for young dog lovers (in our humble opinion).

We know illustrated children's books are expensive so we teamed up with Author Corinne Fenton and New Frontier Publishing for a chance to win 5 copies just in time for Christmas!

Lionel and Me is a delightful tale about a new dog, Lionel, joining a family that already has a dog Maverick. Told from the older dog's point of view, we see how initial jealousy can blossom into genuine friendship and love. 



All children have jealous feelings at some point and, in this book, it shows that they can be overcome and turned into something positive. Other key themes are family life and pets.


When Lionel arrives, Maverick is unimpressed.

Is there enough love to go round for the two of them?

Told from the older dog’s point of view, we see how initial jealousy can blossom into genuine friendship and love. A delightful book that celebrates inclusion and friendship.

Hardcover, 32 pages
Publisher: New Frontier Publishing, Imprint: Catch a Star, 1st June 2022
For Ages: 3-6 years old

RRP: $26.99 from all good bookstores and online retailers.

Award-winning Corinne Fenton is a writer with a passion for picture books that warm the heart. To date, all her picture books have featured an animal hero (The Dog on the TuckerboxLittle Dog and the Christmas WishLittle Dog and the Summer Holiday etc.). Corinne has rescued so many strays over the years that she now never leaves the house without a pet lead.

Illustrator Tracie Grimwood has created a terrific book trailer. Enjoy, it is sooo cute!

Win 1 of 4 copies of Amazing Aussie Dogs - True Blue tales of clever and courageous canines

Some say Australia was built on the sheep’s back, but it’s just as true to say our nation was built in the dog kennel – after all, it was the dogs that were rounding up the sheep!

Australians love their dogs – we’re home to more than 6 million pet pooches – and they love us right back. These are the stories of some of our most remarkable canine companions, embodying the spirit of hard work, mateship and larrikinism.

Dogs like DJ the Border Collie, who survived for days after falling into floodwater near Lismore. 

Kimmy the Kelpie, who sold for a record-breaking amount at a working-dog auction. 

Basil the Rottweiler, who defied the misconceptions about his breed and saved a drowning child. 

'Mumma Zura' the American Staffordshire Terrier who became a doting mum to over 200 foster puppies.



And Lexi the Jack Russell terrier, who learned to ‘drive’ a ute through the paddocks on her farm.

Our faithful four-legged friends save us from peril, inspire works of art and offer unwavering loyalty. In Amazing Aussie Dogs, Laura Greaves brings to life these inspirational true stories of our homegrown heroes.

Written by Laura Greaves a multi-award-winning journalist, author and proud 'crazy dog lady'. Now a freelance writer, Laura has spent more than twenty years writing for newspapers in magazines in Australia and around the world. She's also the author of the collections: Incredible Dog JourneysDogs with Jobs, The Rescuers, Miracle Mutts, Extraordinary Old Dogs, A Dog's Best Friend as well as 3 romantic comedies which feature an extensive supporting cast of cheeky canines! She was twice won the Dog Writers Association of America's Rio Award, which recognises the best book about a dog that has impacted a human's life in a profoundly positive way.

 Win 1 of 2 PetSafe® Prizes to Spoil your Dogs!

Santa Paws is coming to town early, thanks to our friends at PetSafe® Australia!

They have so many gift ideas to spoil your dogs and cats: from Play & Challenge solutions (toys and enrichment) to Health & Wellness essentials with a wide range of pet fountains and automatic pet feeders for all pet sizes and budgets! 

#1. A PetSafe® Automatic Ball Launcher (RRP: $268.79), perfect for ball-obsessed pups! 

Your dog(s) will have the best fun playing fetch with the PetSafe® Automatic Ball Launcher

This launcher is great for both outdoor and also indoor interactive play on those rainy days (just make sure you put away your breakables ... and your cat!)

This Ball Launcher shoots standard-sized tennis balls between 2.5 to 9 metres and up to a 45 degree angle. With 9 distance settings and 6 angle settings, you can find the best combination to suit your dog's height!

Multiple built-in safety sensors keep pets and people safe while playing fetch and the automatic rest mode makes sure your dog does not get overworked. It is that much fun it's hard to stop them sometimes!

#2. A Butterfly Pet Fountain (RRP: $70.99

A fountain just as unique and charming as its name, the PetSafe® Butterfly Pet Fountain makes sure your small dog or cat always has access to fresh, flowing water.

The cute, butterfly topper isn’t just for looks! It creates 4 free-falling water streams for your pet to drink from, or remove the butterfly topper for a quiet, bubbling water flow. 

Both help your pet stay hydrated by encouraging them to drink more since they are naturally attracted to moving water (which is awesome) because your pet needs 70 ml of water (per 1 kg they weigh) every day.


This fountain has a shorter base, which gives puppies / kittens easier access to the fountain. The fountain also has a raised tray, so even if the power goes out, your pet will still have access to water. 

A charcoal filter, foam filter and fountain pump work together to keep water filtered and cleanThe constant water circulation also helps to prevent the growth of bacteria.

Key Features of the Drinkwell® Butterfly Pet Fountain:

✔️ 1.5 litre water capacity makes it perfect for cats and
small dogs
✔️ Free-falling water encourages cats to drink more and help prevent urinary and kidney diseases through increased hydration

✔️ Uses Charcoal Filter (PAC19-14088) and Foam Filter (PAC19-14089)
✔️ BPA-free plastic

With August dedicated to Pet Dental Health, we can't stress enough how essential oral health is to your dog's overall health and wellbeing.

Each 1 of 5 AniPal Treats Prize Packs will include 2 x treat packs, with your choice of the following varieties:

An Adult Dental Stick to clean teeth, containing ChondroitinTurmeric & Chamomile for nurturing minds, muscles and joints.  OR

To help your pets feel and look fabulous throughout the winter season, we teamed up with Australian natural pet care company BuddyPet to offer you the chance to trial some of their nutrient rich daily supplements and natural grooming products.

The entire range was designed by veterinarians and is made with nature’s finest gifts: Australian grown, organic and ethically sourced.

Winter has set in and with the increased humidity this year, you will have seen your senior dogs' mobility deteriorating if they suffer from joint and muscle pain, which is a sure sign of canine arthritis.

Each of the 4 Hemp Health Prize Packs includes:

✔️ BUDDYPET Milly - Turmeric & 100% Raw Hemp Seed Oil for Health Support in Senior Dogs.

BUDDYPET Milly naturally supports and cares for senior dogs in their golden years. It’s a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant supplement that could help improve mobility, recovery and general wellbeing.

As dogs age, they tend to become less mobile due to arthritis, digestive issues, weight gain, deteriorating immune system, heart and lung function. Ageing pets are fragile and need extra support to help them find their zest for life. The good news is BUDDYPET Milly could help!

A best-in-show supplement for senior dogs!

✔️ BUDDYPET Poppy - Hemp Seed Oil Shampoo for Dry, Itchy Skin & Dandruff

BUDDYPET Poppy naturally cares for dry, itchy skin. Scientifically formulated by their in-house vet for pets with inflammatory skin conditions. This gentle, 100% natural and hypoallergenic hemp shampoo for dogs provides a soothing relief to dry, itchy skin, hydrating the skin and reducing skin inflammation.
  • Free of sulphates, parabens, alcohol and toxins. 100% natural and pooch safe. 
  • Great for all breeds and all sizes, from puppies to senior dogs.

BUDDYPET Poppy is only using all organic ingredients (Hemp Seed Oil, Rosehip Oil, Aloe Vera juice, Colloidal Oatmeal, Vitamin E) for a natural way to clean and heal.

Our dogs Porthos & Aramis just like our cat Arya are heat-seeking missiles and at this time of year, they'll claim 'first dibs' well before anyone else is ready! On those bleak winter days where temperatures struggle to hit double digits, you never have enough mats, blankets or heating!

If you care for a puppy / kitten, an elderly dog suffering from canine arthritis , a chronic illness or recovering from an injury, it is essential to keep them warm and comfortable throughout the colder months.

A  fantastic option is to provide them with their own Heated Pad like the Original Pet-mat™, which uses the latest in Positive Temperature Coefficient Technology.

The 
Original 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.

Maintenance is easy! To clean your 
Pet-mat™ you can wash it under running water or just wipe it off with a damp washer.




** Win 1 of 2 Pet-Mat™ Heated  Pads **

Sunshine Coast Dog Trainer, Behaviourist, Dog Trick Instructor and Wedding Dog Handler Charlotte Bryan from Paws, Claws & Tails has trained many dogs and this was the inspiration behind the OneLeash™, her own design for a 9-in-1 robust multi-function reflective dog lead.

Charlotte Bryan’s OneLeash™ is tough, durable, made from premium quality materials and construction. 
It comes complete with anti-shock mechanismsdecreasing the impact to your arm, shoulder and your dog if your dog suddenly pulls on the leash, or you stop suddenly in the car. 

The OneLeash is also reflective which increases your dog’s visibility at night. When it comes to the ultimate reflective dog leash, this is it!

With at least 9 different uses, the OneLeash™ will be there for you no matter what the situation!

✔️  #1 Normal Dog Leash

The primary function of the multi-purpose dog lead is to act as an everyday dog leash. The Clip that attaches to the collar is strong and durable, and the handle is padded for your comfort.

The body of the OneLeash™ has an anti-shock bungee mechanism to reduce any shock to your wrist and shoulder, and also to your dog’s neck if they pulled suddenly.

✔️ #2 Extra Long Dog Leash 

You can also attach the OneLeash Extender™ to the end of the Main Lead, giving your dog an extra 50cm or 1m to roam (depending on what you choose).
NB: This configuration may be too heavy for smaller dogs.


✔️ #3 Dog Car Seatbelt

Once you have finished your walk and returned to your car, simply click the car buckle (located near the handle of the OneLeash™) into the seatbelt port in your vehicle. 


The anti-shock bungee mechanism in the dog leash itself will keep your pooch restrained whilst also protecting them from any sudden jerks.

✔️#4 Hands-free Shoulder Strap

Go hands-free with the OneLeash™ which can be configured into a shoulder strap and leash.

✔️ #5 Two-handed Dog Leash

Need a better grip on your dog or need to keep them closer than usual? You can comfortably hold the leash via two comfortable handles.

✔️ #6 Temporary Tether

Need to quickly tie your dog up while you’re out? Use the OneLeash™ to easily do so.

✔️ #7 Makeshift Dog Collar & Lead

Did you forget your dog’s collar? The OneLeash™ can be configured to act as a temporary dog collar and leash all in one!

✔️ #8 Double Dog Leash

Need to walk two dogs? The OneLeash™ can easily walk two dogs at one with a 360 degree swivel on the OneLeash Extender™ so the dogs don’t get tangled.

✔️ #9 Triple Dog Leash


Yes, it can! The OneLeash™ can be configured to walk up to three dogs at once (just make sure you are able to handle any situation!).

The OneLeash™ has a 1 year warranty on workmanship. Currently, it only comes in the colour Black.

Learn how to set it up and use it by watching this video:

Did you know that February 14 is also Pet Theft Awareness Day?

The increased demand for a furry companion over the past 2 years has also resulted in an increase in pet theft worldwide. Prices for puppies in particular but also older dogs have skyrocketed, attracting greedy backyard breeders - and the interest of criminals.

The advice of the police is to leave your pet at home when running errands but there are occasions when it's not always possible, so can you do to keep your pooch safe and secure?

Designed in Melbourne, Australia, safelysecured™ is the world's first company to offer 'anti-theft' dog harness and lead and now dog collar and lead sets.

#1. safelysecured™ Dog Harness

This is a step-in 'anti-theft' dog harness which is the easiest harness to fit on dogs that don't like things being put over their head. 

✔️ Extremely lightweight, comfortable and best of all, secure! Made with soft, breathable air mesh fabric so no matter the temperature outside, your pooch is going to look cool and be even cooler.

✔️ Available in 10 sizes (from a Chihuahua up to around a Border Collie size).

✔️ Stainless steel wire reinforced 'Patent Pending' design, to stop all those opportunistic thieves cutting them off! Plus, there's a Dual D-Ring for added strength.

✔️ Push button lock on the buckle clip for increased security.

#2. safelysecured™ Dog Lead

✔️ 1.20 Metres Long and 2.4cm Wide.

✔️ Stainless steel wire reinforced design, to stop opportunistic thieves cutting through the lead.

✔️ Includes 2 safelysecured™ combination locks, (in a range of colours) one either end of the lead.







#3. safelysecured™ Dog Collar

New in 2022! For all dog owners that prefer using collars on their dogs, there is now a range of anti-theft collars! 

The Collar features stainless steel wire reinforced design, to help stop opportunistic thieves cutting them off plus Dual C-Ring Buckles for added strength.

With 4 different sizes available, almost all breeds are catered for.




* Win 1 of 3 Safely Secured Anti-Theft Harness (or Collar) & Lead Set *
Total Min. Prize Pool (depending on winner's choice / size is $350.00)

Each winner will be able to choose either the Harness  and Lead or Collar and Lead in the size of their choice. 

Please Note:
The harness size does NOT directly correspond to your dog’s breed or weight. Please measure your dog and refer to the sizing chart for the best fit. You may not mind wearing ill-fitted clothing, but your dog deserves the very best!

Win a PetSafe® Seaside Stainless Steel Pet Fountain for Pet Hydration Month!

January is Pet Hydration Month and with summer temperatures regularly exceeding 30°C, it is essential to encourage our pets to drink more water and more often

We’re delighted to collaborate with PetSafe® Australia again to help spread awareness about the importance of Pet Hydration and to give away a beautiful
 
Seaside Stainless Steel Pet Fountain!

This is the latest addition to PetSafe®'s extensive range of hydration solutions to help your pet stay happy, healthy and hydrated!  

Pet fountains continuously provide your pet with fresh, filtered water

Cats and dogs are attracted to flowing water, which encourages them to drink more water and supports their overall health. This pet fountain holds 1.8 litres of water, the perfect size for your small dog or your cat.

The quiet design of the fountain causes the water to softly bubble over the stainless steel tower (as opposed to a free-falling stream), which allows shy or timid pets to feel comfortable approaching the fountain. 

The 360-degree design allows your pet to drink from the fountain from any angle!

Like Oreo, your pet can choose to drink water from the tower or the bowl!





 
The fountain uses a pump, carbon filter and foam filter that work together to remove pet hair, saliva and bad tastes from the water, so they always have clean water to drink. 

Key Features of the PetSafe® Seaside Stainless Steel Pet Fountain:

✔️ 1.8 litre water capacity makes it perfect for cats and small dogs
✔️ Your pet needs to drink 70 ml of water per 1 kg of body weight every day
✔️ Ultra-quiet, bubbling water flow is soothing and great for picky or timid pets
✔️ High-quality, hygienic stainless steel is scratch and rust resistant
✔️ 360-degree design lets your cat drink water from all sides
✔️ Modern, compact style blends with home décor and fits in small spaces
✔️ Dual-filtration removes pet hair, debris, bad tastes and odours
✔️ Top-rack dishwasher safe for easy clean-up; hand wash the pump separately
✔️ Uses Charcoal Filter (PAC19-14088)Foam Filter (PAC19-14089) and Replacement Pump (PAC00-13184)

Win 1 of 5 copies of The Bone Ranger by Louisa Bennet

The Story: Meet Monty, the food-obsessed, naughty, and totally loving Golden Retriever who will do anything for his owner, Detective Constable Rose Sidebottom. 

Of course, as these things go, Monty is no ordinary dog and Rose is no ordinary hooman. He has a super-smart nose and a network of unique informers via wee-mail; while Rose has an uncanny ability to know when people are lying. 

Together they make a formidable team. But Rose is battling anxiety and her boss has put her on sick leave, so there's nothing much going on - until a stranger begs for their help to find a missing person. The case soon becomes a murder investigation, and Rose's boss warns her not to interfere. 

But when dogs also start disappearing, Monty and Rose have no choice and set out to solve it. Louisa Bennet also writes crime thrillers, like Prey, as L.A. Larkin.

Win 1 of 4 copies of Dog Days - A Year with Olive & Mabel

When Andrew Cotter turned his brilliant sports commentary skills from Wimbledon and the Olympics to lockdown contests (Games of Bones) and life (The Walk of Shame) online involving his two Labradors, Olive and Mabel, the result was an internet sensation. 

Their series of videos has been viewed well over fifty million times on social media, giving comfort to locked-down dog owners and spectacle-deprived sports fans all over the world. 

In Dog Days: A Year with Olive & Mabel, join Andrew Cotter as he takes you behind the scenes and into the pages of his diary to reveal just how extraordinary the year has been, and what really happened after his lockdown superstar Labradors chewed up the internet and found it was quite tasty.

For Olive, Mabel and Andrew, the last year has been like no other. With normal work cancelled or scaled back for so long, it has been a time to take stock and share experiences – both the everyday and the decidedly odd. Here Andrew takes a sharply observed and often hilarious walk through the strangest of days for all of us, reflecting on how precious our time really is, especially the time we have with our dogs.


Beautiful, comical, endlessly optimistic and eternally hungry Olive, Mabel (and Andrew) have padded around from the Cheltenham Literary Festival to 60 Minutes Australia, from their living room studio with ABC News Breakfast to an appearance on Good Morning America, and from obscurity to excited whispers of “Is that really Olive & Mabel?” wherever they go. Not to mention the lucrative merchandise and advertising deals that were turned down by the dozen, and the odd phone call from Hollywood.

Through it all, Olive and Mabel have always done exactly what they do best, being themselves and being there for Andrew – and for all of us who have loved watching their brilliant videos and following their progress online. If you’re a fan of Olive, Mabel and Andrew, this funny, touching and extraordinary account of a year like no other is an unmissable treat.

This sharply written crime thriller featuring Harry the loyal service dog is set around Melbourne and will keep you hooked till the end!
‘The plot for The Long Game was sketched out on a café napkin over a 10 minute burst of scribbling. The next day I was writing the book. That’s what really appeals to me—that you can build something meaningful from an idea and a keyboard.’ said Simon Rowell.

A summer of relentless heat. A local surfer named Ray Carlson is found dead in a house not far from Portsea back beach. There’s a kitchen knife deep in his chest, and blood everywhere.


Detective Sergeant Zoe Mayer is scarcely back from extended leave, and still wrestling with her demons, but she is assigned the case—alongside her new service dog, Harry, whose instincts help her in unexpected ways.

There’s an obvious suspect for the murder, and Zoe makes an arrest. But it’s all too neat, and none of Zoe’s colleagues believes her theory that the whole thing is a stitch-up.
Except now someone is trying to hunt Zoe down.

Superbly plotted, and vividly set in the beachside suburbs and hilly retreats around Melbourne, The Long Game is a mystery about a tough and clever investigator who won’t give up.

Is your dog a heat-seeking missile trying to steal your doona or blanket, your spot on the couch and always edging closer to any heat source available? Then, they'll appreciate the comfort provided by the Pet-Mat Heated Animal Pad this winter!

For those with a frail or hairless dog, a puppy, a senior dog suffering from canine arthritis or recovering from surgery, it is even more essential to keep those dogs warm and cosy during the colder months.

For all these chilly nights and icy mornings, a great option is to offer them their own heated pad like the Original Pet-Mat™.

The Pet-Mat™ uses the latest advances in Positive Temperature Coefficient Technology and 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 madeIt is simply impossible for it to ever overheat ensuring a consistently comfortable use for your pet, even if left on 24/7.

For vets, utilising a Pet-Mat during and after surgery can also be a huge benefit to your patient.

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

*** Win 1 of 3 Pet-Mat™ Heated Animal Pads ***
