Pet product is a 2018 Christmas bestseller...already!

Armitage Pet Care’s Good Boy Advent Calendar for Dogs is already proving very popular with pet owners this year, appearing in the top five bestselling Christmas products in a nationwide list.


The popular GTN Bestsellers Top 50 charts which track the top selling products in garden centres nationwide, using Epos data, has the dog calendar at No 5 in the Christmas Products list, behind festive favourites like History & Heraldry Angel Hanging Decoration,  Suki Personalised Angel Ornament, Suki Personalised Snowman/Snowgirl Ornament, and History & Heraldry Personalised Gift Box.


Trevor Pfeiffer, director of GTN and Bestseller analyst, said: “Advent calendars for pets are always very popular between now and December but to show up so high and so early is testament to the product’s on-going success.


“We all know that pet owners love to spoilt their animals and this is another example of dogs and cats becoming a cherished part of family life.


“I would urge all pet retailers to stock up on Christmas stocking fillers for dogs and cats this year. You could be on to a winner.”
