How to get your dog feeling Christmassy in Liverpool

We all love our dogs in Liverpool, here’s how to give them the best Christmas ever!

They say a dog is for life, not just for Christmas – but that doesn’t mean that your paw-fect pooch should miss out on the festive fun with you! Liverpool has a huge amount of pup-ular dog friendly spaces – and loads of them are hosting boss canine themed Christmas events. So enough of the bad dog puns and take a look at this list so that you and your best mate can have a proper Feliz Navi-dog (ok one more wasn’t going to hurt).

Christmas canine guests at the doggy hotel will meet ‘Santa Paws’ and enjoy a delicious specially prepared Christmas dinner before joining in the festive fun with their four legged friends as they enjoy Christmas songs and  join in with ‘Pass the Pawcel’ and ‘Musical Sits’.  

Christmas Day Care guests are encouraged to join the dog nannies and wear their Christmas Day jumpers for added festive fun.

Owner of No More Kennels and leading dog behaviourist Rebeckah Vaughan said:

“Christmas Day can be a busy and overwhelming one for dogs and their owners. Normal routines can be replaced with the chaos of Christmas fun and frolics and this can cause anxiety for dogs and their parents. Booking your beloved pooch into Christmas Day doggy day care can be the perfect solution to ensure that everyone has a great day and avoid any mishaps along the way. 

“Our environment at No More Kennels is specifically tailored to our dog’s welfare and our priority is to ensure that they have a great time with us and their four-legged friends.”
