The holidays should be special for your furry friends as well as your human ones! After all, your pets are like family members, and they deserve to receive delightful gifts as well. Whether you’re shopping for your own dogs or for those of a relative or friend, check out Waggy Tail’s holiday gift guide for dogs to get the scoop on the coolest puppy presents of 2019.
The Snuffle Mat is a wonderful rug toy featuring layers, ruffles, and pockets that your dog will love to stick his nose into. It’s partly a treat puzzle, partly a nose-work blanket to help your pup hone those natural skills. In other words, it’s the ideal gift to soothe any doggy stress and relieve boredom.
Of course, all dogs love treats, and there’s no better way to tell your pup “I love you” than by buying some special ones! Invest in some natural, organic treats that are healthy and tasty for your dogs, and allow them to have a few extras over the holidays. Waggy Tail gives Primal Chicken Nibs the seal of approval. All of puppers love these!
A New Pet Bed
What dog doesn’t enjoy a new bed? Choose a snuggly, comfy, plush bed that will delight your dog and keep them off the coach as well! It’s a win-win for everyone involved. The Snoozer Cave Bed gets our pick for the holiday season. It’s great for dogs who may display anxiety and also keeps them cozy and warm just as if they were under the covers in your bed!
If your dog is an escape artist, you may want to invest in a smart dog collar. Check the available models to find one that’s equipped with GPS tracking and gives you information about your dog’s activities throughout the day. It’s the perfect complement to a dog cam and allows you to feel less anxious about your pet’s safety and comfort while you’re at work or on a trip. There are many options out there such as the Tile and the Link. Be sure to do your homework to see which product may best suit your needs.
Stress Relief Toys & Chews
Anything chewable can offer much-needed soothing and stress relief for your dog. Does your dog have a favorite chew toy at home? Shop for a new one that’s roughly the same size or shape, but with slightly different features for added interest. Kong has a variety of toys to keep your pooch happy and satisfied. We love the Kong Classic and the Wobbler. For puppies, purchase a cuddly, soft toy with a simulated heartbeat and warming feature to mimic the presence of a mother dog. And of course, edible chews and rawhide bones are classics, sure to win you points with your grateful pet.
