A Christmas stocking is a festive way to include your dog in holiday traditions, and to thank the furriest member of your pack for being a little helper all year long. A dog Christmas stocking is a great gift for pet pawrents too—watching a dog’s reaction to a stocking full of treats and surprises can be a pure expression of the season’s joy. 

Our favorite Christmas stocking for dogs is the Classic Velvet Bone Stocking from Pottery Barn. It combines a familiar velvet and red holiday look with a bone shape design, for a uniquely doggie Christmas stocking with timeless appeal, worthy of the many Christmases to come. We also found a variety of other appealing and festive stockings that might better fit you and your dog’s holiday plans.

While your dog is nestled all snug in their bed, with visions of chew toys swirling in their head, you’ll add a new ‘kerchief, and a treat for oral care, and then hang their new stocking by the chimney with care.

Here are the best Christmas stockings for dogs.

Pottery Barn Classic Velvet Bone Pet Stocking

Classic Velvet Bone Pet Stocking

Pottery Barn

What We Like
  • Classic red holiday hue in soft velvet

  • Waggish bone shape

  • Built-in loop for hanging

What We Don't Like
  • Extra fee for personalization

The Classic Velvet Bone Stocking merrily brings together the definitive red shade of the season with an unmistakable dog bone shape to let everyone know this stocking is for the dog of the house (so stay away, Elf on the Shelf!). The velvet bone’s timeless design will have lasting appeal for holiday seasons to come. Plus, its spacious 16.5 by 11 inch design provides ample room for pupper presents. 

The Classic Velvet Bone Pet Stocking is made from sustainably-sourced cotton that complies to standards set by the Better Cotton Initiative—an organization that has made efforts to improve labor conditions, (but has also been credibly accused of greenwashing). The Velvet Bone Pet Stocking also has a polyester fill for a little extra structure and loft.

For an extra paw-sonal touch, you can have your dog’s name embroidered at the top, but it does cost a little extra.

More and Merrier Ornament Stocking

More and Merrier

What We Like
  • Vibrant colors

  • Soft to touch

  • Pom pom accent

  • Built-in loop for hanging

What We Don’t Like
  • No option to personalize

A cheery canine that brightens your day all year long deserves a Christmas stocking that complements their vibrancy. The More and Merrier Ornament Stocking is made with a colorful ornament print from tip to toe that pops over the cream colored base. The opening is wrapped in red faux fur with two pom pom accessories dangling from a sewn on loop to hang wherever you please with ease. The stocking incorporates shades of blue, yellow, green, red, pink, and gold which is a refreshing mix on the traditional color scheme of the holidays. 

A common misconception about dogs is that they are colorblind, and while your dog can’t see all the same colors as you, they can distinguish shades of yellow, blue, brown, black, white, and gray, so we think they’ll appreciate the variety given to their stocking.

FAQ
  • When should I hang up my dog’s Christmas stocking?

    You can hang up your dog’s stocking along with any other holiday decor, but we strongly recommend that you wait until it’s time for gifting to fill with any treats. A dog’s sense of smell is stronger than humans and they may try to unwrap a tasty treat early. 

  • What should I put in my dog’s Christmas stocking?

    You can fill your dog’s stocking with wrapped and sealed chewers and treats that they enjoy along with toys such as plush squeakers and balls. You can also include small accessories like a bandana or booties.
