As we say a sad fur-well to the Chuckit! Challenge for another year, and former champs Nikki and Tilly prepare to handover their crown to this year’s winners, it’s time to go behind the scenes and see what happened when the original top dogs claimed their prize – and went walkies for a well-deserved week in Devon!

Nikki and Tilly chose their Pets Pyjamas holiday to be at the scenic Edistone Barn in Hartland− a three bed barn conversion with a large enclosed garden. Boasting plenty of space to run around and play, it was pawfect for Staffy Tilly and her cousin and best furry friend Ruby to explore.


To really sniff out the beautiful sights that Devon has to offer though, Nikki and Tilly em-bark-ed on an eight mile walk along the South West coastal path. With weary paws and tired owners, it was time to take a well-earned break for a quick drink, where Tilly chose a delicious classic bowl of water after pawing through her choices!

Making the most of the wonderful walkies on offer, the duo then had a great time trotting down the quiet country lanes, along the winding footpaths and bridleways, and even making a splash doing some doggy paddle in the streams!

After another fun filled day, Tilly was understandably dog-tired, so it was time for a big rest back at the barn.


With legs rested and batteries recharged, Westward Ho! Beach was a top tourist spot they’d have been barking mad to miss. The picturesque stretch of beach was not only perfect for Tilly to swim and splash, but an ideal spot for Nikki to do some socialising too with other owners in this dog-friendly walkers’ paradise. The dogs played and explored the beach for hours – and even the grey great british weather couldn’t stop play!  


Of course, no doggy holiday is complete without Chuckit! goodies.Nikki made sure they took Tilly’s fur-vourites with them - her Kick Fetch, Heliflight and Max Glow Zipflight, so there were always plenty of toys to keep the pooches entertained on their travels.


We are so glad to see that these pup-stars enjoyed their prize after all of their hard work during our competition last year, and we can’t wait to see where this year’s top dogs, Sarah and Tag, choose for their Pets Pyjamas howl-iday next year…
