Your Dog Advent Calendar 2014

Day 21 - Win a Dog Brick Game and treats from The Company of Animals!

Your Dog Advent Calendar Day 21

Two lucky winners will each receive a Nina Ottosson Dog Brick Game and a packet of Coachies Training Treats, from The Company of Animals - world renowned for its Training and Behaviour Centre and pet product innovation.

The Nina Ottosson Brick Game is a tricky, interactive game for you and your dog. Your dog has to learn to slide the bricks with their paw or nose to reveal treats hidden underneath. Increase the difficulty by placing the plastic bones between the bricks so your dog has to learn to remove these first before being able to slide the bricks.

Coachies Training Treats have been a favourite among dog owners for 10 years and now they can continue to be enjoyed with our new improved recipe. The treats are oven baked to lock in nutrition and flavour and with no artificial colours, flavours or added sugars they are a healthy way to train your dog. At only one calorie per treat, these tasty miniature motivators are perfect for use in reward based training and to hide in the Nina Ottosson brick game!

To find out more, visit the Company of Animals website, or 'like' them on Facebook.
