What are you going to get your best friend for Christmas? We’ve come up with a few ideas in case you need some inspiration.
Is your little mate feeling left out of the festive revelry? Buy them a beer or two. Brewed in Britain, developed by experts, and approved by vets, Bottom Sniffer doggy beer is non-alcoholic and packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It contains dandelion, burdock, nettle, and rooibos, and this particular set comes with a jaunty bowtie. Cheers!
Worried your dog gets bored when you’re not home? The iFetch provides endless hours of fun. The interactive tennis ball launchers were designed so that dogs can load the balls themselves, and they’re suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
Enjoy the great outdoors with your furry friend in tow. Ruffwear’s active gear is made with the same technical innovations as human apparel. They have everything from comfortable harnesses to dog boots designed for every season and every terrain. To keep your little mate warm this winter why not treat her to a windproof, waterproof, and insulated coat like the one pictured above.
Treat your dog to a naturally-shed antler from wild red deer that roam the highlands of Scotland. The safe, low-odour chews are free from chemicals and additives, plus they’re nutritious. High in natural minerals and nutrients, the antlers will improve your dog’s circulation and metabolism, and reduce cholesterol. There are versions available for puppies as well as adult dogs.
You don’t want a thirsty dog on your hands. This sensor-based pet water fountain has three modes, and in infrared mode it will dispense water when the sensor detects your dog is within 1.5 meters. Its replaceable carbon filters ensure your dog’s getting a supply of lovely, pure water.
Muddy paws have met their match. This nifty set of Dog Walking Essential Wipes contains four “dirty dog” paw wipes for your dog and four hand cleansing wipes for you! Men’s Society’s products are made by hand in rural Norfolk using natural ingredients, and these eco-friendly wipes contain coconut oil and citrus fruits.
If you have an elderly dog, this memory foam bed will help to ease joint pain and improve mobility—and it’s so comfy all dogs will love crashing on it!
There are few things dogs enjoy more than playing fetch. Bringing a ball launcher and a tennis ball with you to the park or the beach is a fantastic way to bond with your little angels and keep them healthy. With this simple object, you can enjoy hours of playing fetch without tiring out your arm or ever having to pick up a slobbery ball.
Saltdog Studios sells everything from dapper bow ties to fun bandanas to Christmas-themed collars—so basically everything your pet needs to look his absolute best at his Christmas bash!
This is really more of a present for you, but your dog will get something out of it too. Sure you love your dog but you also love your lawn, and those yellow patches that your little buddy inadvertently creates when he pees on it don’t look great. Woof & Brew’s Ha-Pee Lawn is a herbal tonic for dogs that has been formulated to combat urine burn patches on grass. It reduces and neutralises the ammonia and alkalinity in your dog’s urine, and contains vitamins and minerals to help them maintain a healthy urinary tract. It’s available in both tea bag and ready-made tonic formats, and is best served over food.
Oh, come on. You don’t need us to tell you why these are adorable. They’re pink, fleecy PJs. With little monkey faces. For your dog. Look at those ears for crying out loud.
Dogs like to hunt, forage, and scavenge, and that’s why KONG food-dispensing toys make them work for their food. They help to ease boredom, and reduce destructive behaviour and anxiety when dogs are left alone. Fill the RSPCA-approved toys with treats or peanut butter, and you can even freeze them during summer or if your puppy is teething to reduce discomfort. There are different versions available for puppies as well as for dogs with powerful jaws. KONG toys are so popular you might already have one, so if that’s the case try the interactive, treat-dispensing Bob-A-Lot to mix things up for your dog.
The fashion world’s love affair with ’90s trends doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Luckily for your dog, he can stay on-trend while keeping safe during walkies on dark winter evenings with this glow-in-the-dark collar.
Your dog’s health is your top priority so why feed her the same heavily processed food day in, day out? The folks at Different Dog cook different recipes each week by hand using fresh, seasonal, human-grade produce that wasn’t deemed pretty enough for British supermarket shelves. The meals are frozen after they’re cooked to keep them fresh, and then they’re delivered to your door. Easy.
This one’s really more of a gift for you, but if your dog’s into wearing hats it’ll keep their head warm when they’re chilly! You’re already picturing the Instagram posts, aren’t you?
When this interactive dog toy launched on Kickstarter it reached its full funding goal in the space of a single day! The Wickedbone is a robotic toy that plays with your dog by responding to their touch, and it’s programmed to attract your dog’s attention when they move away from it. You can also control the toy’s movements through an app so that you can play with your dog from up to 20 meters away.
Of course the main thing your dog wants this Christmas is to hang out with you! But if you want to take part in an activity that your special someone isn’t allowed to join in on, don’t worry—you can find the perfect local sitter to spend quality time with your doggy on Rover.com while you do your thing. As well as wonderful dog walkers there are plenty of sitters who provide dog boarding, so you’re bound to find your dog’s perfect match!
