What to Get Your Dog for Christmas
Every year in my house, our dogs always had their own stockings hung and a few gifts wrapped under the tree. They were always filled with fun toy and treats, and we always thought it was so cute to watch them unwrap their gifts with the rest of us! Wondering what to get your dog for Christmas this year? Check out our list below!
1. A Big Ol’ Bone to Chew On
Seriously, you cannot go wrong with this. We recommend the Pet ‘n Shape Beef bone (found here). It’s big, it’s beefy, and it’s all natural so your dog is sure to love it. They’ve also got smaller options for our little furry friends. An added bonus: if you give this to your dog last, they’ll be focused on the bone while you finish up opening gifts and cleaning up the wrapping paper mess.
2. A Visit from a Dog Sitter
This is a gift that will keep on giving! Whether you’re traveling during the holidays and want someone to keep your pup company or just want someone to come walk, feed and play with them during the day while you’re at work, a daily visit from a pet sitter is sure to be something your dog will love. Contact us to setup your visits.
3. A New Dog Bed
It can be as simple or as fancy as you like! There are tons of varieties out there to choose from. If you have a senior dog with bad joints, consider an orthopedic dog bed to help ease their discomfort. If you’re super girly and you’ve got a little dog like a chihuahua or Pomeranian that you want to spoil, check out princess dog beds that look like little plush sofas or four-post beds, super chic! Afraid to go the bed route because you’ve got a major chewer on your hands? Check out the K9 Ballistics Chew Resistant dog bed! It will provide your pup with a place to lounge without you having to worry about coming home to bed stuffing strewn all over the place.
4. A Bacon Bubble Machine for Dogs
Yes, you read that correctly. The Bubbletastic Bacon Bubble Machine is just like a normal bubble machine, but the bubble liquid is flavored and scented like bacon, which is sure to make your dog go wild. Not only will your dog love chasing after and popping the bubbles, everyone in your household will get a kick out of it too. Really, this is like a gift for the whole family.
5. Some DIY Dog Treats
These are an easy and tasty gift your dog will love. There are endless recipes on the internet for fun and festive treats, and most of the ingredients can already be found laying around your kitchen. With simple ingredients like whole wheat flour and peanut butter, chances are you’ll be able to whip these up in no time. They can also be a fun activity to do with your kids, and they’ll feel great about making cooking not only for Santa but for their pup, too.
Any of these items will make the holiday specific for your four-legged best friend.
