Top 10 Holiday Gifts for Pet Lovers
It’s been a year, so we feel we’re all pretty much in agreement: we need gifts. And not just any gifts because we’re not just any people. We’re pet lovers–parents, grandparents and the like. We love all things pets and we want our gifts to reflect that quality in us. Luckily, these gifts will fit the bill. Go ahead, pick them all and then send them appropriately. We’ll wait…but not long.
This is the gift that every pet lover not only wants, but needs. Developed by the world’s leading dog DNA service, the Wisdom Panel™ Premium dog DNA test can uncover your dog’s breed mix down to 1% specificity as they test for 350+ breeds, varieties and types.
