New dog food alert!

It seems like there is a new brand of dog food popping up every week at the moment. Some claim to be free of... everything, some are packaged amazingly, and lots use really good ingredients. I like reading all the information from the brands to see exactly what is in the food and how it's all made. And whilst Dhillon could happily eat all day long, I have to be careful with what I give him... He has a delicate little tummy. So when it comes to reviewing dog food (I'm not about to eat it!), I only choose those that I know will be kind to his stomach.

When the lovely people at Tails.com offered him a trial, I jumped at the chance. I'd seen and heard lots about the brand. They tailor the food based on the breed, age, activeness, current diet and likes and dislikes of your dog and hand-mix each each order. Dhillon eats wet food at the moment, so I wanted something compatible, which this is. What's more, the bag and little plastic scoop comes personalised, a nice touch. And if you forget what is in the food, you are reminded with a list of ingredients when you get it delivered. 

Dhillon loves his Tails.com food. I only give him a little scoop's worth mixed with his wet food. For a dog that likes a bit of crunch, this is perfect. The kibble is just big enough. 

When you sign up, you have the option of letting Tails.com automatically send out monthly supplies based on the breed and how much you feed your dog. The whole thing is really clever, and if you want a trial, we've got a special code that gives a two weeks... just enter TAILS_DHILLON at checkout!

The other food brand that caught my eye recently is WONDERBOO, direct from Sweden, and only launching in the UK this Spring. 

You'll notice the amazing packaging - it's so chic and simple, but effective. You remember it. It has that understated Scandinavian feel to it - sharp lines yet minimal. The brand is all about style and quality. Each meal comes in a plastic bowl inside one of these little boxes, and this actually is meant to be so you can feed on the go too! Genius. 

Founder and CEO Magnus Rosengren says: "For many years we have fed our canine friends food from the major dog food producers without questioning the contents. Dog owners' awareness has now increased, and the same high demands we put on our own food is no places on the food we feed our dogs." 

All ingredients are Swedish and natural, and contain either ox or cod. The cod is almost like dry flakes, and so not to upset his stomach, I sprinkled some on top of a couple of Dhillon's meals to see his reaction... he LOVED it, and ate it in seconds! 

I like that there is no filler or bulk in this food, what you see is what you get. There are few ingredients, and all are really good for your dog. The cod does have a strong smell, but dogs don't mind that!

Winny the Corgi launches new card range...

If you're a dog lover, the chances are you follow a few of the handsome hounds who are now considered Instagram stars in their own right. Tuna, Ella Bean, the list goes on. And one of our favourite Insta-pooches, Winny the Corgi (see here), has some exciting news... 

HE HAS JUST LAUNCHED THE CUTEST RANGE OF GREETING CARDS! 

This is the equivalent of a celebrity launching their own fashion collection!

Birthdays, invitations, thank yous and general lovely cards are all included in Winny's collection, and prices are £3.50, which we think is competitive considering what stores charge. 

All cards are available on Winny's site, www.withlovefromwinny.com, and you can even get a card bundle too! 

Taylor Hill, Topshop's new AW16 campaign star and her pup in new video...

News hit our inbox last week that high street giant, Topshop have launched their brand new autumn winter 2016 campaign staring model-of-the-moment Taylor Hill. 

FYI she has 4.2 million Instagram followers! 

Anyway, for her debut campaign for Topshop, Taylor models the autumn winter collection in some amazing images, shot around New York, and styled by Topshop's Creative Director, Kate Phelan. 

Obviously we love the new collection, but Topshop also created this super cute video with Taylor and her dog, Tate, which charts a day in her New York apartment. Take a look at it, and the new clothes, here...  

Trussardi set to launch dog fashion line...

Trussardi, the 105-year-old Italian fashion house, has announced today that they are to launch their first pet fashion line, Trussardi For Your Dog. 

The label, known for its amazing leathers, tailoring and knitwear, have teamed up with Fashion Streetwear Italia on this new collaboration, which will include chic collars and leads, lovely dog bags and doghouses and amazing knits, sweaters and coats. 

Trussardi has long had a greyhound for its signature logo, which appears embroidered on tops and as hardwear on the front of bags. Guaranteed this pet line will be a beautifully crafted, gorgeous-to-the-touch collection! 

According to WWD, 'Trussardi for Your Dog will be distributed in selected pet shops, international department stores, as well as in some of the brand’s boutiques.'

Keep your eyes peeled! 

Five of the best dog videos...

Who doesn't love a hysterical dog video to brighten up their day? There has been SO many viral videos over the last couple of years that we found it hard to whittle it down to just five, but we imagine this feature being a rolling one... maybe one a week? 

Anyway, here's our current top five. Enjoy... 

Thom Browne dedicates his new collection to his dog...

New York-based fashion designer Thom Browne has a miniature wire-haired Dachshund called Hector. And Hector has now been turned into a bag. 

No, it's not what you think. No harming Hector happened in this tale (or tail). He has simply been immortalised into the new must-have bag! Yes, meet The Hector bag! For spring 2017 (Browne has recently showed his new collection - fashion works a year ahead remember!) Hector is rendered in leathers, of all different colours, and right now you can buy him in blacks and creams. 

But he's not just for the ladies. Oh no. Browne very kindly introduced Hector into the current collection for us men, which is now on sale. Suits, jumpers, shorts, trousers and of course bags, all with Hector as a theme. 

This one of the best dog-inspired fashion collections we've ever seen!
