What can I gift my dog for Christmas?
Before you determine the best holiday gift for your best friend, think about what they like. For instance – if you have an aggressive chewer on your hands, then I recommend a thick Kong or durable squeaky toy.
If you have a fetch lover – think about getting a tennis ball launcher (I love those Chuck-Its). Or, if your doggy is extra food motivated, chances are they’ll love a few dog treats and maybe even a food puzzle toy. You’ll definitely be the best dog owner after that gift!
On the other hand – if you have a wild one that is still pretty young (or could just use some dog training regardless) – you can always give them something practical. Remote control dog collars are a great way to train a dog that likes to wander…pretty soon they’ll come as soon as they hear the dog’s name!
So, the best dog Christmas gifts are really up to you and what your furry friend loves the most. Either way – you know you’re a dog lover when you’re getting your pooch a gift!
What should I get my small dog for Christmas?
If you have a smaller dog, then chances are they may not be too keen on chasing a dog ball for hours on end. But – they still have to get in the holiday spirit, right!? Here’s a few tips if you’re a smaller pet owner (see more below in our complete gift guide).
You can’t go wrong with squeaky toys. Literally – anything that squeaks, it doesn’t even need to be a toy (hah). I’ve also found that little dogs really like dog puzzles. It keeps their brain occupied and before you know it, they’ll be exhausted before even stepping outside.
If you have a lounger – you can always put a few plush toys in their Christmas stocking along with some other goodies like a fuzzy dog blanket and maybe some peanut butter.
Or – if you’re going for a more practical gift idea, you could gift your pooch a new dog bed or even a dog leash. Even better – combine it all into the perfect gift box, put it into the dog stocking, and your dog will be satisfied for life. Seriously – dog people are truly a different breed!
