Take Part in the Decempaw Photo Challenge
Fur-get the advent calendar (although those treats are tasty, so maybe don’t forget the advent calendar), this year we’re running a #Decempaw photo challenge!
Christmas is the pawfect occasion to make memories with your pooch. The twinkling lights, the traditional tree, the bustling markets and cosy coffee spots. We’re inspiring you to create Christmas magic for your dog by taking part in our festive photo challenge. Snap the memories with us throughout the festive season.
Take part everyday on Instagram with the #Decempaw, and at the end our fellow Explorers will select the most committed and inspiring pooch to win a t-shirt and card from Pawty Pooch.
On Facebook? Take part by posting photos to our Facebook groups Dog Furiendly Wales, Dog Furiendly England or Dog Furiendly Scotland.
