Pet Trend | Emojis and Smiley Faces for Dogs

Anyone who knows me can vouch for that fact that I talk ten to the dozen so emojis are definitely my kind of chat… and thanks to fashionable pet fun house FuzzYard, dogs are barking for emojis too. 

Along with the Love Eyes, Eek, Tongue Out and Bahaha faces – the messy matter of poop has been given a smiley makeover too thanks to Harperandhugo.com, as shown above.

9 Pet Gift & Subscription Boxes Plus Special Offer & Giveaway


The pet gift and subscription box market has exploded with a variety of options to cater to a modern pet’s whim, and of course the owner’s convenience of having it delivered direct to their door. Affording your pet the opportunity to sample everything from treats to toothpaste, there’s even a service to keep you on top of your pet’s healthcare treatments.

As the title of this post suggests, these boxes can be purchased as a one off or for the gift that keeps giving - as a subscription, normally three, six or twelve months. The major plus for pet boxes is they favour new or quality products that you don’t tend to find in your local pet shop making it a real treat for your cat or dog. 

We’ve rounded up nine pet gift and subscription boxes based on their quality and value for money. As with the beauty box companies, you will find some similarities between the boxes so which one you go for is a personal choice. However, we recommend digging around their website to see past boxes, weighing up what price suits and sniffing through their social media to weigh up what gang you want your pet to be part of. Plus many of the companies donate a portion of their sales to charity so let that be part of your decision too!

Amazing Insta-Dog sensation @TunaMeltsMyHeart has been shimmying his cute strawberry blonde butt around the UK on tour for his book Tuna Melts My Heart The Underdog with the Underbite. Luckily, his kind dog mum carved out some time in their jam-packed schedule to talk to Barkarama.

Basil and I caught up with the pair last week at dog-friendly Megan’s – a café, grill and bar on the King’s Road in Fulham…

Trend | Treats in a Tin

MHearties-Little-Cod-Treats.jpg

I’m a sucker for packaging. Basil is a sucker for tasty treats. Ticking both our boxes and spiking a canine trend are dog treats in a tin. I’m pro tin-packaged treats, as not only do they keep Basil’s edible source of happiness fresh, they also ensure that my handbag or coat remain a crumb-free zone. Give them a whirl and you’ll soon discover that they’re great for grabbing your dog’s attention too. A quick rattle of a treat-filled tin and Basil comes running or stands to attention. 

Here’s three treats in a tin to try but if you know of any others fill us in @Barkarama or comment at the end of this post. Most of all - enjoy!

We’re forsaking a Valentine’s gift guide this year, as there’s already a cute one from yours truly, over on the animal pages of Townandcountry.co.uk, although for a last minute addition head to The Artisan Pet Deli for tasty heart-shaped treats galore.

This post is all about pet art, which is probably one of the most heartfelt gifts you could get a dog lover. While art is very much in the eye of the beholder here’s the list of who has caught ours. Some are ready-to-go of your fave breeds, whereas others are available bespoke to your actual dog. Many of the featured artists also offer greeting cards, bags, wrapping paper and more so be sure to check out their online shops.

Woof Guide | Discovering Dog Friendly Seven Dials

Barkarama-SevenDials-RachelOates-Dog-Bench.jpg

We've been stalling on our first post of 2016, as we wanted to kick off the year with this bobby-dazzler of a photo-shoot with pet photographer Rachel Oates, taken for the latest issue of Dog Friendly Magazine

Our setting was Seven Dials, a truly gorgeous area tucked between Covent Garden and Soho – and one of our all time favourite shopping and hangout spots. Dog Friendly asked if we’d be kind enough to visit Bow Wow London, the award-winning dog shop to see what all the fuss was about, as well as sniffing out some of their dog-friendly neighbours.
