Admit it. You like to spoil your dog. And you might even overdo it a little. No one will judge you for it! Dog owners love to spoil their four-legged friends, and we’ve rounded up ten great gift ideas to give your beloved friend for their birthday, Christmas – or just because!”
#1 – New Bone – A new bone is like going to a five-star restaurant for a prime steak. Dogs love them. But make sure you get something safe, something made in the USA, and something meaty so your canine friend will appreciate it. The Smokehouse 100% natural meaty mammoth bone would be a perfect treat.
#2 – Squeaky Toys – While some pet owners can’t stand the sound, squeaky toys are a hit with dogs! How about getting your dog one when you’re gone all day? The squeaky toy will make them think they’re on the prowl, and no other animal will get hurt. The Kyjen Hide-A-Squirrel Puzzle Toy for dogs is a great example. It looks like several small squirrels hiding in a tree trunk, and dogs go crazy for this toy!
#3 – Outdoor Kids Pool for Dogs – If you live in a state where it gets really hot in the summer, your canine buddy might appreciate the same thing your kids do – a pool! There are PetEdge Guardian Gear Splash About Dog Pools made just for dogs to get in, get wet, have fun and cool off.
#4 – Blanket or Bed – We all love getting gifts to make us feel good, and dogs are no different. Your pet will love the Pet Ami Sherpa Pet Blanket, which is so soft and luxurious, it makes nap time ten times better!
#5 – Fetch Ball – Balls for fetch aren’t what they used to be. Now there are things like balls that whistle and bounce unpredictably. You can do this with the Chuckit! Fetch Medley Balls, and they even have a launcher to make throwing them easier.
#6 – Tug Rope – Dogs love to tug on ropes, and you can get all kinds of cool knotted ropes for your dog that are perfect for their size. The Mammoth Flossy Chews Cottonblend Color 5-Knot Rope Tug is great for really large breeds.
#7 – Flying Disc – Small and large dogs love to catch things. A flying disc is perfect for this, and you want something that fits a dog better than a Frisbee. Try something like the Ruffwear Hover Craft for dogs. It’s made of foam, so it’s gentler on your dog’s mouth, but just as fun!
#8 – Laser Toys – Laser toys made for animals don’t go over well with consumers. But if you use them responsibly, i.e. don’t aim them at your dog’s eyes, you can buy something like the DinoFire Presentation Clicker Laser Pointer For Dogs (and cats). Give your pet a lot of fun chasing the red laser all over the floor and even crawling up the walls.
#9 – Treat Toy – Treat toys are popular with pet owners who know their dog loves a challenge. To get the treat, they have to manipulate the toy. And no company makes better treat toys than KONG. The KONG Classic Dog Toy is a best seller. All you have to do is put a treat in it, toss it to your dog and let him look for the treat. It comes in many sizes for dogs from extra small to extra, extra large.
#10 – Crinkle Toys – This is similar to the pet squeak toy, but if you want your dog to enjoy toys that make noise, they will love the Crinkle Toys that sound like paper being crumpled. The Ethical Pets Skinneeez Crinklers Cow Dog Toy is a best seller, and it has no stuffing inside so your pet can have a blast crinkling it!
