Verdict

When it comes to planning your next canine adventure, Phileas Dogg’s Guide to Dog Friendly Holidays in Britain is an endless source of inspiration for days out and mini-breaks with your mutt. For streamline packing and minimal stress, we’d go for Poppy & Rufus’ Maxi Dog Travel Bag every time. Plus once unpacked it folds away neatly should you and your canine companion find yourself in close quarters. But if you’re an owner who likes a deal, then for two products in one for less than £20, the ThrowBall Frisbee Water Bowl gets our paws up.
