ANIMAL-daft shoppers keen to spoil their pets this Christmas are being offered the chance of a quirky selfie with Santa.
Dobbies Garden Centres is offering its pet loving customers the chance to book their beloved cat or dog in for what it's calling "the ultimate festive experience".
And no, they haven't gone barking mad, it seems...
Santa Paws will be available at the Inverness store from the November 28 until Christmas Eve, with pet owners able to take a snap to celebrate.
This will take place in-store with four-legged friends getting a snap with Santa in his Winter Wonderland – and a special treat from the man in red.
Graeme Jenkins, CEO at Dobbies, said: “With a strong pet offering in store, we have a very loyal group of four-legged customers who enjoy our products all-year-round – and we wanted to offer a special festive experience just for them. Along with the chance for owners to take a snap with Santa, we have a whole host of pet food, toys and grooming products to spoil your pets this Christmas.”
The store says safety of customers and team members is its top priority and social distancing and hygiene measures are in place for all its events. Customers taking part in the Santa Paws experience will be required to wear a face covering in store, with scheduled sanitation carried out between visits.
