Following their successful A dog is for life campaign last Christmas, Dogs Trust have created another memorable campaign this year.  Give Socks Not Dogs has been created to raise awareness for the high number of dogs which have been given as Christmas presents, to unprepared owners.  Dogs Trusts are therefore encouraging people to give socks this Christmas, rather than a dog.  As part of the campaign, Dogs Trusts have completely rebranded and become Socks Trusts for the festive period!

As part of their campaign, horrifying statistics have been released which reveal 3,400 calls were made to the Dogs Trust alone in a 30 day period following Christmas.  That’s 113 calls a day about unwanted, defenseless dogs.

I hadn’t heard a lot about Guru, but I had seen a bit of hype on social media so I was interested to try it out, the team at Guru were more than happy to send a sample which, went down a treat.

It’s an age old saying ‘a dog is for life not just for Christmas’ but seriously, a dog is the worst Christmas present you could get. It’s not just a clever marketing campaign, the stats are enough proof, the RSPCA claim ‘three pets are abandoned every hour at Christmas’. So when you hear this saying over the Christmas period this year, remember the importance behind the words, they could just save a dogs life.
