It is getting close to the big day when all the gifts have to be delivered. Have you finished your shopping, or are you stuck on what to give your dog-loving friend or relative?
Here are some suggestions. Some of the most appreciated surprises do not involve shopping in crowded stores or waiting in long lines to check out. They consist of gift certificates from: 1) the dog owner's veterinarian for either a certain amount or for certain services like preventative shots. Or, maybe, 2) a certificate from the dog owner's groomer for a certain amount.
Other gift certificates from pet stores or from wherever your friend purchases the dog's food can be helpful as well.
Besides gift certificates, you might want to find a cute scarf for windy days when your friend is showing outdoors. I prefer a medium brimmed hat to shade my eyes, which I also use while driving especially at sundown. Be sure to include a reminder for the handler to practice with a hat or scarf at home so the dog will not be distracted in the show ring.
