From big dogs to tiny pups, here are a few holiday gift ideas for the four-legged family member on your holiday shopping list. —Amy Oberbroeckling

Hidden Leash Collar, $40— The Release-N-Run Leash Collar is designed for dogs who like to run off leash. It’s a collar with a built-in, 4-foot retractable leash that stows away when not in use. Purchase Gift / More Info.

Merino Wool Dog Jacket, $139— Give your dog an extra layer of fur with the Ice-Barker jacket from D-Fa. Both indoors and out, this merino wool jacket will keep your dog toasty and warm all winter. Purchase Gift / More Info.

Full Skijoring Package (includes pictured custom X-Back Harness), $296 — This kit from Skijor Now will last for many seasons of use. One GearJunkie editor and his dog have been using the kit for more than 7 winters and there’s little sign of wear. It’s custom-sewn to the size of your dog in a facility in Minnesota. Purchase Gift / More Info.

Rugged Rubber Ball, $7 — Touted as the “world’s best dog ball,” the Orbee Balls comes in four sizes to fit your dog. These rubbery spheres also float in water, making them great for a game of fetch on the beach. Purchase Gift / More Info.

Climate Changer Fleece Jacket, $60— This synthetic fleece jacket fits close and tight so it doesn’t snag outside. Your pup can wear it for days on end, and then it’s easy to wash in the laundry at the end of the week when it starts to stink. Purchase Gift / More Info.

Omnijore System, $150— Not just for skijoring, the Omnijore System from Ruffwear is designed for any dog-pulling activity. The system includes a dog harness, human hipbelt, and towline. Hook your dog up and you’re both ready for a fun day outside. Purchase Gift / More Info.

Oversized Collar For Big Dogs, $28— The 1.5-inch collar is a better fit for bigger dogs with large necks. It’s wider, so unlike other collars it won’t choke if your dog sometimes pulls on the leash. Purchase Gift / More Info.

Himalayan Dog Treat, $5— Your pup will love this snack after a long day on the trail. The non-meat Himalayan Dog Treats are made with yak and cow milk, and other natural ingredients (no chemicals or preservatives).
