That is why this year we want to encourage you to shop small for Christmas and support those brands who have struggled to survive in this harsh economic climate.
To help support them, we have teamed up with some of our favourite small businesses to create the ultimate Small Business Christmas Gift guide not just for your pooch, but goodies for you too! To further encourage you to shop small, each brand has provided HPC customers with an exclusive discount code to use on your order.
