I recently got a new puppy, and I have to say it has taken a lot of restraint — A LOT! — to keep myself from buying him new toys and treats every day. After all, there are so many adorable and inventive options out there for pets nowadays. But with the holiday season upon us, I feel like I can let down my guard and indulge my desire to pick up a few extra things for my pooch. If it makes me happy, hopefully it will make him happy, and, maybe more importantly, it will keep him entertained while his human family members "ooh" and "aah" over our own gifts.
So as you're making your holiday gift list, don’t forget to include your four-legged friends. Whether you’re thinking about delighting him with some new treats, a new toy, or a cozy bed, here's a selection of great gift ideas for pets to please even the most particular pooch.
Moderno Pet Sofa
Your dog will be sleeping in style on this contemporary bed with stainless steel legs and a washable velvet cushion. Look at how adorable it'll look!
Alligator Dog Collar
For the dog who has everything. This sleek alligator-leather collar comes in either black or brown and can be personalized with up to 12 characters and spaces.
Rock 'N Bowl
You may tell your human family members not to play with their food, but for dogs it can be a great way to ensure they don’t inhale their meal in one gulp. Pour dry food in the top and then watch as your dog nudges the bowl to force the kibble to drop through the holes in the paw print and out the bottom.
H2O4K9 Water Bottle
For those times when you take your dog on long walks or road trips. He'll never be without fresh water thanks to this stainless steel bottle, which has lid that doubles as a water bowl. The 9.5-ounce bottle fits into car cup holders, backpacks, strollers, and more.
If your dog likes to play fetch, he’ll love this automatic tennis ball launcher (and your arm will thank you). Set the launch distance to either 10, 20, or 30 feet, and watch as your dog chases the ball and then brings it back to drop in the top of the machine for endless fun. This runs on an AC adapter (included) or batteries and comes with three miniature tennis balls.
Furbo Dog Camera
It’s a treat-tossing pet camera. We repeat: a treat-tossing pet camera. If this one is not already in your holiday gift cart, there is something wrong.
Wine Barrel Dog Feeder
Add a rustic artisan touch to mealtime with this handmade dog feeder that’s made from a recycled wine barrel. The Small size is 22 inches long, 11 inches wide, and 6 inches tall. The Large size is 26 inches long, 13 inches wide, and 10 inches tall. Both come with two stainless steel bowls.
Boomer & George Pet Feeder Station
What do we love most about this pet feeding station? The fact that after Fido eats, you can tuck away his bowls! Clean up has never been so simple (or chic).
Hearth & Hand with Magnolia Pet Holiday Plaid Toy Rope
Have you ever seen a prettier chew toy? We doubt it. This is one gift you certainly won't mind leaving out when guests come over.
