Gift Ideas for Dogs
Will Santa Paws be leaving a present for your pup this holiday season? According to a study by the American Association of Pet Products, half of all dog owners will purchase gifts for their furry family members this year. Since we at Rover admit to occasionally spoiling our pups, we weren’t surprised that (on average) dog owners spend at least $11 per gift on their dog. We were surprised to see, however, that fish owners blew dog owners out of the water, spending an average of $23 per gift (perhaps on gifts like the fish training kit). Need some extra ideas to spoil your pup? Check out these outside-the-box gift ideas for dogs!
For the Energetic Pup
Pet Cube- $150 (preorder)
Can’t get enough of our #rovercam, and wish you had one starring your pup? The Pet Cube just might be the perfect solution! This cube has built in camera and pet-safe laser, both of which can be controlled remotely from an app on your phone. This way you can play with Fido, even when your miles away, or just check in to admire your little cutie. Better yet, you can share your account with friends to keep your pup playing all day long!
ifetch- $60 (preorder)
Whether you have a Corgi that won’t quit, or a dog that needs to burn some extra calories, the ifetch is an awesome toy to keep them exercising without wearing out their human. The ifetch will launch a ball that you or your dog drop into the funnel. Once your pup figures in out, there are unlimited hours of uninterrupted play in store!
For the Couch Potato
Pet Lounge – $200
If your pup loves nothing more than kicking back for a good nap, consider this luxurious Bambú Hammock. A bit pricey, it might be reserved for the most pampered of pups – but if they see you browsing these lounges, they might try convincing you they’ve been extra good this year!
Puppy Tweet – $19.99
If your dog has yet to achieve social media stardom, the Puppy Tweet may be the perfect start. This small device attaches to your dog’s collar and sends out tweets throughout the day. The device senses motion and sound, so pre-written Tweets are sent in association with their activities (sleeping, playing, barking, etc.). Just clip on to your pup and follow their Twitter feed all day!
