We’ve all done it before, last minute holiday shopping…for our pets. From putting a stocking out for Fido, to a personalized ornament with his smiling face, our dogs have become just as much a family member as mom and dad.
Rather than scouring the aisles of the pet store, we have a special treat for you. We’ve rounded up the perfect pooch-friendly stocking stuffers for just about every type of dog out there.
10 incredible gifts for dogs
For the adventurous dog…a GoPro Fetch ($59.99)
Sure, we’ve heard about seeing things from birds-eye-view, but how about dogs-eye-view? The GoPro Fetch is a camera mount that is harnessed onto your dog’s back. You’ll finally be able to capture the moments from when he is lovingly scarfing down his dinner, to when he is sprinting down the trail after a squirrel—the options are endless! Works with any GoPro camera; sold separately from the mount.
For the dog who can fetch for hours…an iFetch ($99.95)
We all love playing fetch outside, but there comes a point when he wants to keep playing and you’re ready to be done. Lucky for you, this nifty device will throw the tennis balls on its own and will keep your dog playing for as long as he’d like (no sore arm for you!). All you need to do is load the balls in the top, and set if you’d like the ball to shoot 10, 20, or 30 feet. Additional balls are sold separately.
For the outdoorsy dog…a Ruffwear Dog Pack ($79.95)
Sometimes when you take your pal out hiking, you want to make sure he’s carrying his own weight too. That’s why Ruffwear created the dog pack: a comfortable backpack for dogs that can be taken out on the hiking trail, or simply for a walk on the beach.
For the dog with a sweet tooth…Peanut Butter Dog Truffles ($16.95)
What could be better than eating a truffle treat right next to your dog, but knowing his is made up of dog-friendly ingredients? Spoiled Sweet Pets’ bakery created these scrumptious truffles to offer a beautiful treat that would be safe for dogs to eat. Be careful, they look so tasty that you might confuse them with your own!
For the bone-loving canine…a Himalayan Dog Chew ($11.49)
These tasty dog chews combine two of every dog’s favorite ingredients: beef and cheese. These treats come from USA free-range, grass-fed cattle, and provide dogs with many of their much-needed minerals and nutrients. Even better? This 12’’ Yaky Dog Chew doesn’t cause the dog to over-produce salvia and therefore, reduces odor. Hallelujah!
For the anxious dog…a Thundershirt ($39.95)
From fireworks to knocks on the front door, some dogs can easily get anxious. The Thundershirt calms the dog by giving him a “gentle hug,” created by constant light pressure on the dog’s chest, sides, and back. The shirts come in a variety of colors, sizes, and even has the option of custom embroidery.
For the dog who loves to play…The Tidy Dog ($64.99)
Tired of tripping over rope toys and Kongs? We have the trick for you! This dog-friendly toy bin will basically train your dog to pick up after himself. The Tidy Dog bin senses when the weight of a toy is added to the bin, and dispenses dog treats as a reward for dropping in the toy. Who said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?
For the fancy furry friend…Doggie Cigars ($11.00)
I know what you’re thinking, and no, we don’t want our dogs smoking either. These cute 11’’ toys are rope through and through, which means that there are no fillers that come apart with extended play. They are perfect for gnawing on, throwing, and playing tug-of-war.
For the fitness dog…a Tagg GPS Pet Tracker ($99.95)
Want to see how active your dog really is when you’re not home? How about knowing where to find him when he decides to venture off of the property? The Tagg tracker connects to an app on your phone, and notifies you if your dog isn’t where he’s supposed to be, hasn’t been active for a while, and much more. It simply attaches to your dog’s collar and charges on a docking station.
For the classic dog…a Kong toy ($6.99-24.99)
We’ve all seen them, and they are probably one of the most recognizable dog toys out there. Easy to fill with peanut butter, chew on, and throw, this toy has been a staple in all pet-friendly households for over 30 years.
Now’s your chance to get some of that early holiday shopping out of the way with these pet-tested and -approved products. We promise, you’ll be thanked with a tail-wag!
