In a world where we often treat our dogs better than we treat ourselves, it goes without saying that our holiday lists have become canine-friendly. We found these great gifts for dogs to simplify holiday shopping.
Lucky for our pups, the humans keep coming out with gear that makes their comfortable lives even cushier. We’ve got the inside track on your doggo’s dream gifts for this holiday season.
Orvis might have the most fun group of dog gifts on the market, from fun wine glasses to ornaments to stockings. But my pick is this perfectly priced dog pillow. It’s adorable, neutral-colored, and personal.
There’s always something just a little bit sweeter about adding a personalized touch to a present, and for $8 you can class up this gift just the right amount.
My border collie rocked the Ruffwear Approach Dog Pack all summer, and I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s the perfect size for carrying his own gear into the hills, and I even stash a freeze-dried meal or two in there to help balance out the pack. I love that it comes in blaze-orange — it’s helpful for hunting season where I live.
Ruffwear offers two other options for pups, one more streamlined and one big boss hog of a pack. But I prefer the midsize Ascent. Your dog should pack about 10 percent of his or her weight max. This pack hits a great sweet spot for the average dog.
Another tried-and-tested product that lives up to the hype, the Dublin Dog Collar is the burly, waterproof collar you didn’t know you needed. They come in a ton of fun prints, and they’re made of web covered in a plastic coating.
Their longevity is a bit bonkers. They do only come in medium and large sizing, but a different collar from Remington offers similar durability in extended sizing.
Greenies Dental Dog Treats: $8-65
If you haven’t heard of Greenies, you should ask your vet about ’em. They’re one of the top brands for keeping your dog’s dental health in check. And this pack of treats will help your dog keep his New Year’s resolution of cleaner teeth in motion.
Available in five options, the Pendleton National Park dog bed is the ideal spot for a nap. With a machine-washable cover, you can set aside the worries of accumulated muddy pawprints. And this bed gives part of the proceeds back to our incredible system of national parks.
Thus far, Pendleton has sent more than $800,000 their way, making this bed a feel-good option for both you and your pup.
YETI Boomer Dog Bowls: $40-50
Is it dog bowl overkill? Yeah. But it’s still awesome. And it’s another fun gift that you can personalize for your favorite furry friend. These YETI dog bowls are the last bowls you’ll need to buy. They’re so tough they’ll probably become heirlooms.
This 360 LED collar ensures that your dog stays visibly up to 1,000 feet away in the dark of night. If you’re an outdoor hound yourself, you’ve likely wondered where your pup is wandering around camp or the trail.
For a measly $12, you can outfit your partner with a bright way to figure it out. Different modes allow you to distinguish one pup from another, and it’s basically a rave for your pup’s neck. This collar adjusts from 12 to 27 inches, meaning it’s a one-stop shop for most dogs on the run.
BUFF Dog Insect Shield Neckwear: $11 (on Sale)
Cute up your pup and keep them free from ticks and fleas with this rambunctious BUFF for pups. You can certainly find more color combos, but this one is currently on sale and is as adorable as your deserving doggo.
