If you’re an animal lover like I am, you understand how important it is to include your pet in all possible activities. With my puppy, I couldn’t imagine leaving her out of our Christmas festivities! I can’t wait to watch her rip up the paper on her gifts (as long as she doesn’t eat it, of course).

So, here are the gifts Daisy will be getting under the tree this year.

  1. Chaco Dog Collar and Leash ($15, $20)
    Cute and durable? What could be better. This set is perfect for runners because the leash is adjustable, and you can clip it around your waist while you’re running.
  2. Kong Wubba ($7.49-$13.99)
    I love Kong toys. Daisy is a strong chewer and they seem to last far longer than the others. The Wubba has a built-in squeaker and will also work well for tug and fetch because of the ball and tail, so it’s almost like 3 toys in one.
  3. Best Hikes with Dogs Book ($17.95)
    What could your dog use more of? Quality time with you, of course! And what could we all use more of? Exercise! Give your pup the gift of a great bonding experience and give yourself a good cross training workout.
  4. Ruffwear Front Range Dog Harness ($39.95)
    I’ve heard wonderful things about Ruffwear products, and when I have looked at them in the store, everything I have heard has been accurate. This harness will stand up to the test of time. Another great feature is that it can be attached to the leash at the front or back, so if you’re training your dog not to pull, you have options. Another thing I love about this harness is that it’s the same price, whether your dog is a teacup or a giant.
  5. Soggy Doggy Super Shammy ($19.99)
    Whether or not you buy this for Christmas, this is something every dog owner needs. Sometimes, getting your pup wet when they go outside for a bathroom break is unavoidable. This product makes it simple to prevent your dog from “shaking it out” and getting water everywhere in your house. It soaks up water like crazy.
  6. Hear Doggy Ultrasonic Squeaker Toy ($12.99)
    Like having a dog, but you also like peace and quite from time to time? Well, this make it possible for you to enjoy your Netflix binge, while keeping your puppy occupied. They even have tougher fabric for strong chewers (and it definitely lasts longer than most plush toys).
  7. Home Verve Ultimate Foldable Bowls ($22.99)
    You don’t have to use these for your pet, but I would! These make traveling or camping so much easier. Metal bowls can take up so much space, and they aren’t practical if your dog gets thirsty in the car or after a run.
  8. Barkbox Subscription ($29 – $19, depending on how many months you buy)
    It’s okay to spoil your dog. If you already spend this amount of money on your furry friend each month, why not have it delivered to your door? Plus, Barkbox gives back to pups in need, donating a portion of their profits to charity, so it’s a win-win.
  9. Digesteeze Rawhides ($19.99)
    Rawhides get a bad rap, and for some of them, rightfully so. However, Daisy goes crazy for them. These dissolve and do not break off into tiny pieces like some of the brands we have tried. We still supervise her at all times when she uses them, and we don’t let her eat one in a sitting, but they are great if you are responsible with them.
  10. Brindle Memory Foam Dog Bed ($79 – $159)
    Don’t let yourself be shocked by the sticker price, you can get these wonderful memory foam beds with a washable cover for much less on Amazon. They come in so many different colors to fit with your decor, and the sizes are also perfect for crates.

 

What are your favorite products to spoil your pooch/running buddy with?

Cheers!
