It's Burns Night!

Celebrate Burns Night in Style

Celebrate Burns Night in Style!

On the 25th of January, Scots and their friends around the world celebrate Burns Night - an evening of Scottish culture and laughter celebrating the life of the legendary poet - Robert Burns. So on Monday, when you toast in celebration, don’t forget to raise a glass to Burns’ best friend and of his greatest inspirations… His beloved Border Collie, Luath. 


Burns and Luath were said to be inseparable, with the pup always being at his feet while he was writing, which every dog lover can relate to today! Our pooches are our best friend and often inspiring is in one way or another.


With that being said, we thought we would share some top tips to enjoy Burns Night to the fullest with your four-legged best friends!


What To Eat

The star of any Burns supper is undoubtedly the haggis! Unfortunately, neither traditional nor vegan versions are suitable for dogs because traditionally they contain onion and garlic, but be sure to give your furry wee friends a dog-friendly treat so they feel part of the party! Here are some pawfect options to get you started...

What To Drink

Whisky is the favourite amongst hoomans and is an essential part of any good Burns Supper. But whilst you enjoy a sup, be sure to order in a couple of dog-friendly beers so your pooch doesn’t miss out! We have the perfect choice for your woof!


Woof Beer


But before any of that! Be sure to have a poem to ceremoniously recite for all to hear! Traditionally, poems may be read between courses, but you can always throw in some music and have a dance with your pooches!

Finally, don’t forget to finish the evening in high spirits by singing Auld Lang Syne all together, but be warned, woofers may howl…
