Perfectly Imperfect Dog Biscuits...

We love this common sense approach to dog treats...

Dogs don’t want for pretty biscuits. They only care for taste & quantity. ‘Broken Biccies’ are certainly not pretty treats - in fact they’re a bit ugly. These assortments of broken & misshapen treats have not passed the ‘beauty grade’ at top doggy bakeries, but dogs have proven they still taste great. We’ve rescued these ugly biscuits and given them a second chance at fulfilling their destiny of providing dogs with delicious delicacies – but also providing great value for dog owners.

And the Winner is...

The winner of our 2015 Dog Photo Competition is this great shot from Julie Makin of her happy dogs Sam, Polly and Bailey performing some acrobatics at the beach.

Julie said: "We couldn't believe it today when we received the phone call telling us we had won the photo competition and a free week's holiday at Helsbury park. We just love the fact we can just go to Helsbury and relax in 5 star luxury for the whole week and the dogs are just as welcome than humans. There is so much land to explore with the meadows, river and pond for the dogs to play in and the pool and sauna for us to relax. This will be our third visit to Helsbury and we could never imagine holidaying anywhere else."

Late Availability in the Farmhouse...

We've had a cancellation in the farmhouse for the Summer holidays, it is on the 10th July. If you're interested let us know asap - it wont be there for long!

Helsbury Dog Photo Competition Entry 26

This is definitely the last entry for the 2015 Competition, we have so many to choose from it is going to be  a fantastic competition!

Bas Alberink sent these shots and said: "As you can see on the pictures, the dogs (4 of them…) had a great time on Trebarwith Beach and the chilling of Great Dane (Dotty) afterwards. This has been our third time to Marhayes in the last six years and it was wonderful as usual. Swimming every day with our four year old daughter was great and so was the gym at times to keep fit. We’ll be back again sometime in the near future."
