Living in Lanzarote we’ve found that there isn’t that much choice when it comes to buying the dogs. And pet products are damned expensive!
We’re planning a trip away soon and want to take the dogs with us. So I’ve been looking around for a proper dog guard – I really don’t want to risk the fines! At times like this, so many of us ex-pats gravitate to ebay and Amazon back in the UK. But, as I’m always spouting on about using local businesses I thought I’d have a look at what online pet stores there might be on the peninsula. My thinking being that it would be cheaper on postage as well as being more convenient that buying from the UK. I am glad I did – I found TiendAnimal.es. Good prices, great selection and they deliver to the Lanzarote as well as the other Canary Islands – they also refund the appropriate taxes automatically, something few UK site seem capable of.
Still waiting for the dog guard to arrive – heaven knows when that will be with the Lanzarote postal service. But, we are planning our next order in the meantime!
