Holiday songs and a slight nip in the air can only mean one thing — now is the time to buy your best four-legged friends a special Christmas treat.

Local dog lovers need look no further than Furry Fanatics for perfect pup-pampering gifts for under the Christmas tree. The shop at Gulf Place is stocked with everything from Christmas-decorated dog treats to Santa outfits to Sandy Paws, a plaster of Paris mix to capture your dog’s sandy prints after a walk on the beach.

And if that isn’t enough to cross off every item on your good little dog’s list, wait until the new year when owners Julie and Tim Brown will release an exclusive Dogs of 30A line of accessories plus a wide range of supplies and novelties.

“We’ve created a line of Dogs of 30A gear,” said Tim of the exciting range of products that will serve as a reminder of time at the beach.

Tonia Shatzel and Rob Wood started Dogs of 30A as a coffee table book in 2010, out of a love of bringing their own four-legged friends down to the Emerald Coast’s white-sand beaches. Local design firm Design 360’s Keri and Greg Atchley lent a paw to the designing of the book, and the project quickly grew into a well-“liked” Facebook page and sticker often seen on cars around town.

“They created something unique and special for area dog lovers and we wanted to continue to see it grow,” said Julie, adding that many clients will proudly share with her the pages on which their four-legged friend is featured.

Now, the Browns are taking that idea to the next level and are excited to partner with 30A.com to promote the Dogs of 30A.
