Holiday gift guide: Stuff we love


Ah, it's that time of year again, when our attention turns to holiday parties, spending time with family and friends, food and drink...and shopping 'til you drop!  We'll make it a little easier on you to find the perfect gift for the four-legged friend(s) in your life.  We have some suggestions for fun, practical, and inexpensive gifts that will bring wags all around.

While winter hasn't made its presence known just yet, cold and snow are on the way.  Pawz boots will help you get through winter with no sweat.  In case you haven't heard of Pawz, they are disposable, reusable and waterproof dog boots.  They will keep your dog's paws free of frozen snow, mud, salt and other unmentionables.  They are also great to use around the house if your dog has trouble getting its footing on hardwood or slick surfaces.  Best of all, they are inexpensive and fit perfectly in a stocking.  We love them so much that put them on special this month so you can love them, too.



We have been carrying Riddick's All Natural Jerky Treats for several months and they are a hit with our clients.  Even better, they are local and are made with free range, natural meat.  They come in venison, beef and bison flavors and in 2 oz. and 5 oz. bags. (which just happen to also fit nicely in a stocking).


MountainMutt Dog Coats are handmade locally and provide warm, weather resistant coats for dogs needing protection from the harsh Colorado winter.  MountainMutt's coats are made by hand from high-quality technical fabrics including soft-shells, Polartec fleeces, as well as leather and recycled materials.  MountainMutt's breathable fabrics are engineered to manage heat exchange, block wind and resist water.

These coats are great for apres swim, for dogs with short coats, immunocompromised/geriatric dogs, post-surgical dogs, or just for an extra layer of warmth for those really bitter days.

We have several coat styles in stock at our Englewood and Broomfield locations, as well samples of the fabrics available.  We can also take your order!  Won't your dog be stylin' with one of these under the tree this year? you prepared if your pet has a medical emergency?  This is the most comprehensive first aid kit we have found.  And, the great thing is that it also benefits homeless animals at the Longmont Humane Society.  List of Contents of waking up to those anoying tags clinking around?  We have the perfect stocking suffer.  A CRCG Quiet Spot Tag Silencer.


And, last but not least, you can always give the gift of CRCG!  CRCG t-shirts and gift cards make great gifts. Gift cards are available in any denomination and are sure to put a smile on the recipient's face (both human and canine). Don't have time to come in.....give us a call and we can mail the gift card to you. 303-762-7946

Our short-sleeved t-shirts are available in a variety of colors with the new "Eat, Sleep, Swim" design that has gotten raves.  We also have long sleeved, hooded t-shirts with the ESS logo available in black.
