Read on for our picks.
Give your pup’s mealtimes a personalized touch with these ceramic bowls lovingly emblazoned with their name. They’re fully customizable, giving you the flexibility to choose a font that reflects your dog’s personality—the seller will even send proofs of the final design before it goes into production. Measuring 7 inches in diameter and 2.75 inces in height, each bowl holds up to six cups of kibble or water and can be hand-washed (dishwashers may cause the vinyl name decal to deteriorate). The seller, Loges and Lily, also offers smaller bowls designed for tinier breeds.
Customers rave that these personalized bowls were adored by dogs and owners alike, and the quality of the work is high—and sturdy enough to hold up to puppy-level bursts of energy.
The Furbo Dog Camera will quickly become you and your dog’s best friend. This is a great gift for your pup–or the pup parent who hates leaving Fido home alone. This two-way 1080p camera allows you to not only check in on your dog when you’re away at work but also toss him a treat to keep him engaged. It features night vision and a bark sensor which will send an alert straight to your phone whenever your dog is getting a little rowdy. With an easy set-up, all it requires is WiFi and a power source to get started.
If you’re a tech-obsessed dog owner, the Furbo is the best gift for your pup this year. Just make sure you save room on your phone for those endless dog selfies you can take with its camera.
Okay, we admit it, this might be a gift that you'll enjoy more than your pooch. But what better way to get into the festive spirit than through a holiday tartan set?
Designed in San Francisco and made in the USA, this accessory bundle includes everything your dog will need to get all dressed up, including a collar, bandanna, and elastic bow tie. The star player here is the bandanna, which is stitched into a triangle so that you won't have to fold it before wear.
Each of the items are handcrafted with comfort in mind and come in three different sizes for all types of breeds. Plus, for every order placed, The Foggy Shop will donate 1/2 a pound of dog food to a local rescue shelter—so you can feel good about your purchase, too.
Another can’t-miss: A stylish and comfortable dog bed. We love this one’s chevron design and plush material—and since the fabric is treated, it’s ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. Available in a slew of different colors and sizes, it’s sure to be appreciated by dogs who could use a comfy place to nap (and owners who are tired of looking at a soggy old dog bed).
Getting your pup a leather collar for Christmas is the equivalent of getting him a fancy new watch, adding a subtle hint of luxury to his daily outings. This collar from AOLOVE comes in ten colors, including fun ones like rose and purple, and made from high-quality leather and attractive, nickel-plated hardware. It’s attractive, durable and adds an undeniable classiness to daily walks.
There’s a size for every breed, so, whether he's a Bichon Frise or a Great Dane, your pup can spend the holidays in style (just make sure to measure his neck to determine the correct size).
If yours is the type of dog that can’t sit still, a hearty game of fetch is just what the doctor (er, veterinarian) ordered. The Chuckit ball is a great upgrade from your ratty tennis balls.
This unique fetch toy comes in small and large sizes, with color options of either glow-in-the-dark green or bright orange. Made from canvas, rubber, and foam, the Chuckit has a grooved design that is both aerodynamic and allows your dog to easily pick it up and bring it right back to you. It floats in water and rolls as well, so it's great for outdoor play. Throw a bow on this toy, and you’ll have the happiest pup at the Christmas tree.
Ah, the classic dog sweater. It’s undoubtedly one of the go-to Christmas gifts for pups, and with good reason: They’re adorable. We especially love this one from Lanyar, which has a holiday-ready pattern featuring reindeer and snowflakes against a bright red that all but shouts “Christmas!” Available in sizes from extra small to extra large, it’s easy to find the right fit for your dog.
Made of 100 percent acrylic fiber, this sweater has a wool-like feel that’s sure to keep your pooch warm all winter long. Just be sure to take your dog’s measurements carefully. (If you’re unsure, air on the side of ordering a size larger, as this product tends to run a bit small.)
Where dogs are concerned, you can’t go wrong with a bone. This all-natural beef bone from Pet ’n Shape is sure to please, even if it looks a bit morbid under the tree. It’s ideal for larger dogs, especially those with a slightly aggressive chew, and is completely digestible. With no artificial additives and plenty of protein (but little fat), it’s a healthy treat that's sure to be a big hit with pups big and small.
A word of caution: if you have carpeting, don’t place the bone directly on the floor. Put a paper towel beneath it, otherwise, it might leave a stain.
KONG is one of the best-known brands out there for chew toys. They’re especially known for their classic, bulbous design, which can be filled with peanut butter or other treats. This one is a little bit different.
Shaped like a tire, it’s perfect for games of fetch and tug-of-war. Available in two sizes (small and medium/large), it’s great for any breed—and sure to become a fun, tire-shaped outlet for their chewing urges.
If you're shopping for a small dog (or cat!) who loves to cuddle, this cave-like bed is a great pick. Its high walls offer both support and warmth, along with a sense of security that might prove useful during storms or other stressful events. It also accommodates a variety of positions, so your fur baby will be properly supported while sitting, resting, and more.
One tip: If you have wooden floors, you may want to put a towel below the bottom of the bed so it doesn’t slip and slide around on the surface of the floor.
Sometimes, the best gifts are the ones you can eat. This principle is as true for dogs as it is for people, so why not fill your pup’s Christmas stocking with some delicious jerky? These beefy treats come in a 60-oz container and contain 15 vitamins, as well as minerals, calcium, and Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids.
The jerky stays fresh as long as you keep the lid tightly closed, and you can also easily tear it into smaller pieces—a plus for pups on the tiny side.
Keeping your pup entertained isn't always an easy task, particularly if you're not home with them. Puzzle game toys are a great solution, and this one from Nina Ottosson by Outward Hound is no exception.
How it works: simply hide treats in the toys various different compartments, close the lids, and let your dog get to work. Once she gets the hang of things, you can increase the difficulty by up to two levels. Besides easing boredom, this toy is also a great way to prevent destructive behaviors like digging or chewing. Plus, your pooch get a reward for all of her hard work!
Get your pup into the holiday spirit with this festive tree toy from Frisco. While this cute toy may appear as a standard, plush Christmas tree toy on the outside, it's actually a four-in-one toy that will keep your dog entertained for hours.
Included with the tree are three present shaped squeaky toys, which you can opt to hide in the tree for a game of hide and seek with your pup, or have them enjoy them separately. Either way, you'll get four stimulating toys that your dog will love.
