Christmas Dog Gift Ideas
The gift that keeps on giving. Get your pup a subscription box of toys and teats. A box is shipped every month with fun themes to make you laugh and entertain your dog. Each box comes with 2 toys, 2 treats and a chew. You and your pup will be counting down the days to your next box.
Treat Dispensing Toys
Treat dispensing toys are a go to for enrichment. Anytime you want to entertain your pup for a bit, stuff some food and treats to satisfy and mentally stimulate your dog. The classic toy for stuffing treats is a red wobble KONG but there are many other options to keep your dog entertained and enjoying. Another great treat dispensing toy option is the Bob-a-Lot from Starmark. If you’re looking for a variety of KONG options, check out our list of the different KONG toy styles.
If your dog loves a game of fetch, the Chuckit! Ball Launcher is the perfect Christmas gift for your pup. The launcher lets you throw farther and not have to bend over to pick up the soaked ball. The Chuckit! balls are heavy duty and withstand your dog’s teeth better than a classic tennis ball.
Our dog can chew through a toy within seconds, except for Fluff and Tuff toys. Don’t take my word for it though, read the reviews and see how long these toys last. While not indestructible (Fynn’s gator is missing a few legs and his back scales while his stingray is missing the tail), these toys are the closest thing we have found that last. They also wash great in a washing machine.
Bully sticks are a classic treat for your dog for a reason – long lasting and all-natural. They are one of the healthiest treats you can give your dog and full of protein. While there are always precautions with treats, read our analysis of bully sticks to decide for yourself. If you are concerned about the last small piece of bully stick, you may want to add a bully stick holder to your dog’s stocking.
Just like a tennis ball, these are made of felt and rubber. The huge size is great run for a dog to run around and chase for massive fun in the yard. Go through the reviews and you’ll see how much dogs obsess over this toy. While they may pop it, the pups have spoken, and they love it.
Looking for a longer lasting all-natural chew for your dog? Look no further than Benebone. The wish bone shape is perfect for your pup to grab with their paws and get a great chew. If you have a heavy chewer, benebones are for them. The Benebones are flavored with real bacon, chicken, and peanuts. They also come in four sizes to make sure it’s the right size for your pup’s mouth.
Putmynameonit on Etsy offers incredibly affordable custom products to spoil your dog. The store offers dog bowls with your pup’s name on them – large or small. They also offer decals with your dogs name on them for your food containers.
Long lasting, extremely hard chews for your super chewer dog. The Himalayan Chews come just from yaks and cow’s milk with no preservatives. They are high in protein and due to the curing process, should not bother your dog’s stomach – even if they are lactose intolerant or sensitive. Compared to bully sticks and rawhides, yak chews last longer and are healthier for your pup. Make sure you purchase the right size for your dog.
Confuse your dog for a Tasmanian devil some days? The Bull Fit toy is your solution. Made of firehose material these toys make sure your dog cannot rip through it. This toy is perfect for bonding with your dog over tug of war or fetch. It’s tough enough to be recommended for K9 and military dog training.
