The real cost of Canada Goose

American brand Canada Goose, famous for selling outerwear have recently been in the public eye in the UK (again) due to their new store opening in Regent Street. This multimillion dollar brand is one of the labels of choice for celebrities and wannabes due to the name. However, the true cost of these coats is much more than the £900 price label, due to the unthinkable cruelty that goes into making the products. Here are some facts why, despite many thinking these jackets are the warmest, this brand is actually the coldest. – Canada Goose uses real coyote fur as the trim on their hoods – These coyotes are trapped...

Pooch and Mutt

Pooch and Mutt were the first treats Ember ever ate, way back when we first got her in 2015. These British made treats are baked with the best natural ingredients, they are low in calories and ethically made, which is something really important for me. Plus, Ember loves food, so what’s better, is Pooch and Mutt offer food too....

How Instagram is fighting animal tourism

Instagram is actively taking a step to remove images which display the exploitation of animals. Animal selfies, which are seemingly innocent to the people posting the images, actually cause a lot of distress to the animals involved. Instagram is now beginning to alert users to these images and discouraging users from posting pictures like these. Animals, including sloths and kolas, dislike being handled or carried around, just to pose for unknowing tourists. Therefore, these animal selfies are causing these animals great amounts of distress. And let’s not forget lion cub petting, which fools many tourists with their hidden unethical practices. Visit claws out to find out more. What’s more, most...

Please Don’t Buy Someone A Dog For Christmas

Bear with me on this one, I know it is a controversial topic and for some people, getting a dog for Christmas worked out amazing. While that’s obviously great, other experiences are not so positive.   Everyone knows the saying ‘dogs are for life, not just for Christmas’ and big animals charities have run many campaigns sharing this message. Of course, most people intend to stand by this saying and have all the best intentions. However, a lot of people have no idea what they are getting themselves or others into.   Becoming an owner of any pet, particularly a dog, is a massive decision and life-changing choice. Once you...

Lily’s Kitchen Christmas Collection | 2017

Lily’s Kitchen never fails to kill it with their Christmas collection and this year is no different. With their trusty advent calendar and turkey and cranberry treats back again this year along with Christmas gift sets, they are joined by a doggy biscuit tin which is a cool play on Christmas biscuit tins for humans. The star of the show this year, however, is the Gingerbread dog, who can be found in the biscuit tin and there is even a fiction book written staring Lily, Lulu and The Gingerbread Dog, along with a recipe to recreate the Gingerbread Dog. With the 1st December coming this Friday! Don’t forget to grab your...

Wet Nose Box

Last weekend was Ember’s third birthday and I found her the perfect birthday present, a Wet Nose Dog box. This box is actually a monthly subscription box, but you can also get special one time boxes for special events such as birthdays, Christmas and gotcha days. All the products included are hand selected which means they are all high quality and even separately packaged, which made opening the box even more fun. There was also a treat for us humans and even a birthday card for Ember. Signing up for a box is super easy. Simply enter your dog’s name, size, gender and birthday. There is also a box where...

New Beginnings

Welcome to Led Astray, a blog about dogs and love. I have loved creating this blog over the past year, but recently I have started to feel uncomfortable with the content I was posting. You can find our old posts here. Instead, I want this blog to be about something I am really passionate about; making a difference. Ember has helped me to become more compassionate and I want to share that because I feel it is really important. So, on the new led astray you will find reviews of our favourite products and companies, with an emphasis on ethical products and companies doing good. I also want to share...
