The Ultimate Gift List for Dogs: 12 Ways to Treat Your Pup This Season!
As you wrap up your Christmas shopping (or get started on your list of what to buy for friends and family), don’t forget the dogs! Your pup is one of your best companions, and if you’re like many dog owners, you think of Fido as your own family.
Thankfully, you don’t have to spend too much for your pup. You won’t need to give him the latest video game console or buy him a fancy new outfit. Your dog will be overjoyed no matter what the gift is.
Here are a few ideas:
1. Pet Fountain
Spruce up your dog’s drinking experience by turning their bowl into a water fountain!
2. Gourmet Dog Treat Gift Box
The holidays are a time to eat and be merry. What’s the best way to treat your pup? How about a box of 75 treats?!
Keep the chill off during those long walks. (One of you has to work off the turkey and Christmas cookies!) This cozy sweater will keep your pal warm.
4. Pet Paw Protection Wax
Speaking of walks, sometimes your dog’s paws can feel extra cold or get too hot in the summer. These invisible wax puppy shoes will protect them against heat, cold, sand, and more!
Make a present.
If you’re the kind of dog owner who prefers to make your gifts with love at home, here are a few ideas for going the homemade route.
6. Homemade Dog Treats
Bake some homemade peanut butter dog treats. You can even use Christmas cookie cutters to infuse these snacks with holiday spirit!
7. Customized Pet Bowl
Make a customized pet bowl using dot painting.
8. Denim Dog Toy
Looking for a cheap, sturdy, and homemade plaything? Try a denim toy.
9. Easy & Cheap Dog Toy
Your dog’s brain needs stimulation, just like yours. Why not craft a homemade treat puzzle from a tennis ball to do the job?
10. Recycled Dog Sweater
Dog sweaters don’t have to couture to be cute! Hit up the thrift store, and construct one yourself!
11. Easy, Washable Pet Bed
Looking to whip up some fresh, homemade treats for your pup? Try Bake-a-Bone. You can bake four treats at once!
Don’t forget to wrap all these presents in some edible, non-toxic, doggie wrapping paper.
Enjoy Christmas with Your Furry Friend!
Hide the presents underneath the tree, and when it’s time, give the wrapped gifts to your dog. He’ll tear open his presents, and you’ll get to watch his eyes light up as he plays with his new toys or chows down on some cute treats.
There are plenty of other doggie gifts for pups to enjoy—your options are almost endless! Look around your nearest pet store or even around your house to see if there’s anything you can make for Fido with safe household items. He’ll enjoy any gift you give him!
