Hedgehogs, A declining Species. Give Them an Igloo Shelter

Hedgehogs are on the decline in the UK

The Igloo Hedgehog House gives hedgehogs and other small mammals a safe refuge from the many hazards they face on a daily basis such as gardening tools ie strimmers, forks, spades, also domestic pets and other predators like badgers and foxes.
It is also much safer than piles of leaves, compost heaps and bonfire piles.
Comprising of a round painted steel frame with a water-proofed roof it is covered with a brush wood finish decorated with withy bands and camouflaged with moss trim. Made from natural materials – appearance can vary due to seasonal availability.

The Hedgehog Igloo is roomy inside and can accommodate family groups such as mother and her hoglets.

Able to contain both a feeding bowl and water dish this shelter can also be used as a covered feeding station.

It has a small entrance tunnel designed to deter predators. The Igloo is designed for shelter but can be used for hibernation if additional brushwood cover is provided over the Igloo in winter.

Place under a hedge, large shrub or similar concealed place, out of the cold wind with leaves or foliage around the house for further camouflage. Put in some dry grass or leaves as nesting material. Can be anchored down for extra security.

Hedgehogs are on the decline in Britain due to various reasons and factors. Help our natural wildlife to survive.

Let us know if you have any success with providing shelter for these creatures.

Dimensions H 220mm W 590mm L 530mm

Pimp your dog by making your own doggy outfits

Cats may be cool as cucumbers, but dogs need a bit of an extra helping hand in the cool looks. They’re lovable, cuddly balls of fur and drool, but they’re not quite as good when it comes to strutting their Saturday Night Fever Outfits.

Thankfully, you can help turn your dog into a player with awesome dog accessories and dog clothes. You can get your pet all dressed up and looking their best, helping him to impress the lady pooches when he takes his daily turn around the neighbourhood. (We do suggest designer dog clothing for that, but not dog booties)

Of course, we do suggest moving past dog Halloween costumes and other funny dog costumes and heading straight to the goods. Whether you’re after fully grown dog clothing or puppy clothes, you can always make your own.
