Toys that combine treats with a physical and mental challenge are some of the best toys around.
This cool IQ treat ball from Pet Zone is truly interactive and is sure to keep your dog engaged all morning.
You fill it with your pup’s favorite treats, adjust the ball to their current learning level, and watch your dog take on the challenge of getting the treats out — it’s a real physical and intelligent challenge.
The toy itself is super durable and non-toxic, and it can even be used as a slow-feeding toy for dogs that normally wolf down their food — simply fill it with kibble instead.
Teepees and tents have become all the rage for dog owners in 2017 and it’s easy to see why — these little structures are perfect for pups that love to create a den in their own space while still being able to look out on their owners.
This pet play house from Free Love is particularly cute, made from beige cotton canvas with New Zealand pine poles to keep it up. It also comes with a very comfortable pillow mat that your pooch is sure to start snoring on.
When it comes to the best beds for big dogs, we’re more likely to recommend a sturdy, chew resistant model like the PetFusion Ultimate Pet Bed and Lounge, but we love this deep dish cuddler for all the little dogs out there!
Self warming, thick and plush, it’s no wonder that dogs love curling up in this fluffy dish. Add to the fact that it provides exceptional levels of joint pressure relief and is machine washable, and you’re looking at a really fantastic product — especially for older and disabled dogs.
When you have two dogs, suddenly things start to get messy.
That’s double the hair, double the strewn kibble, and double the wet shaking at bathtime.
But with this ultra sophisticated food bowl set from KMG Designs, you can introduce a little glamour back into your home.
Made from a rich and beautiful walnut, this set will look great in any kitchen, dining room or garage. Plus it’s available in two sizes — small and regular.
If you’re looking for a backpack that can also handle carrying around your small dog, then look no further than this incredible ExPawlorer product.
It’s a mesh travel backpack that can be used to carry pets weighing up to 20 lbs. The large, adjustable, padded shoulder straps help ease the weight while the durable polyester and ventilating mesh keep your pup happy and comfortable.
This could be a game changer for long walks and hikes with small dogs.
It’s available in two colors: wine and dark grey.
OK… we admit it. This present is really for a human rather than a dog. But it’s so cute and funny that we had to include it.
Anyone with a pug knows that that cute short snout is good for one thing — really loud snoring. Like, loud enough to wake you up at 3am wondering who ordered the monster truck.
Pet Studio Art have created this funny tote bag for all pug owners — it’s hand printed with original artwork. As a bonus, the material is 100% cotton and eco-friendly.
Cutting your dog’s nails can be either a fun activity or a trying chore, depending on how well your dog behaves during.
This nail grinder from Bengoo is going to make the task infinitely more easy whatever your circumstances. You can choose from three settings: for small dogs, for medium and large dogs and for fast-shaping the nails.
It’s super safe to use and gets the job done just right with minimal risk of cutting too short and into the quick — usually an issue with normal nail clippers.
This automatic pet feeder is a real game changer — not to mention a must-buy for anyone buying into the smart home phenomenon.
It’s been refurbished this year and helps you to manage your pup’s feeding times, portion sizes and ingredients. It also connects to Amazon Alexa, allowing you to automatically order dog food to your doorstep when you’re running low.
The feeder is controlled by the Petnet app, which you can program to portion your pet’s food and serve it at the schedule you want. This means that you can make sure your dog gets fed no matter where you are — whether you’re caught up late at work or on a weekend mini-break.
It also provides personalised suggestions on food, ingredients and portion sizes depending on your pet, helping you make healthy choices.
We’ve had a couple of entries on our list already for beds for small dogs, but what about for bigger ones?
If you’re looking for a large dog bed and you’re on a budget, take a look at this super popular cot from K&H. It’s durable, strong and comfortable, made of waterproof 600 denier fabric. It can hold dogs over 150 lbs.
The mesh center keeps your pup cool all night long and can be used indoors and outdoors. It’s available in 4 different sizes and 3 different color schemes.
This super cute holiday rope toy is a great dog stocking filler if ever we’ve seen one.
The toy is made from durable cotton rope that will stand up to the challenge of tugging and chewing. And when the fibers do start to unravel, there’s no need to panic — they will help to floss your dogs teeth and will pass easily through the digestive system.
Some owners like to up the engagement factor by putting ‘George The Gingerbread’ in the freezer beforehand to make chewing even more of a challenge.
We love training with our dogs, but sometimes it gets confusing and messy when we’re trying to fully engage in games and exercise while juggling bits of treats in our hands at the same time.
Buying a dog treat training pouch is a real game changer, making everything much easier and hands-free.
This one from Paw Lifestyles can easily be clipped onto your waistband or shoulder strap and proves to be great storage for kibble, toys and treats — we even use it to store poop bags on walks and clip on the clicker for training sessions.
There’s also plenty of space to store things like your keys, phone and wallet — it’s a real all-in-one storage solution!
OK… this is another present for us. Who can resist the mildly suspicious face of Doge the Shiba Inu?
As a popular meme, you’ll be both giving a nod to popular culture and Shiba Inus everywhere!
It’s available in small, medium, large and extra-large. Check the measurements before you order.
One of the more unusual additions to our Christmas list 2017, you might be wondering who on earth would shell out such good money for a dog water bowl.
Well, this is no ordinary water bowl.
This is a self-filling water bowl that can store up to 2 liters at a time. The water is gravity fed into the bowl, fresh and cool filtered every single time.
There’s no splashes like with normal bowls as the level is kept low despite the high capacity.
It’s perfect for traveling and long adventures with your dog.
Probably our favorite thing about these treats is the flavor — peanut butter and jelly, anyone? Have you ever met a dog not obsessed with peanut butter?!
But not only do these treats promise to be delicious (and come in a lovely gift-ready package) but they’re healthy too: 100% natural, baked, and free from corn and wheat.
They’re small in size and made in the USA in small batches.
For those of us who own mutts, one of our favorite games to play is, ‘what breed is my dog?’
With the Embark Dog DNA test, you can wonder no longer: it reviews 160 health signals and a huge 200,000 genetic markers to provide an accurate breed ID for your mongrel.
This is definitely one of the best dog DNA tests on the market: it tests for 100 times more genes than other tests, is certified by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals and is partnered with the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine.
More healthy dog treats that will fit easily into a stocking here with these cheddar-flavor bark pops from Bixbi.
All-natural, light and crunchy, each pack contains a generous 100 dog treats, all of which are made in the USA in a human facility monitored by the USDA.
As well as being natural, they’re also free from wheat.
Flea and tick shampoo is often laden down with chemicals and bearing a horrible clinical smell — but not so with this shampoo bar from Wondercide.
It’s a natural deterrent against fleas and ticks thanks to the citronella and geranium essences used. Natural and organic, it’s great at making a rich lather and rinsing clean, while cleansing the skin and coat, and repelling insects.
Wondercide is a mom-owned business that makes their products in the USA. This shampoo bar is also 100% biodegradable.
These sweet potato and apple treats are another great stocking stuffer this Christmas.
They’re low calorie, light, crunchy and made in the USA. What more could you want?
High up on our dogs’ Christmas wish list this year is this incredible interactive ball launcher from iFetch.
Essentially, it’s an automatic tennis ball launcher especially designed for big dogs.
Run on a rechargeable battery, it will launch standard size tennis balls either 10, 25 or 40 feet (or at random) at the touch of a button. It’s the perfect toy for large dogs who need plenty of exercise and physical stimulation.
If you’re in a relationship where one of your most recurring conversations is “have you fed the dog?”, you need this Did You Feed The Dog device.
It can be mounted anywhere and is just as simple as it appears. Simply move the slider to indicate when you’ve fed the dog that morning or night.
This is a great tool for couples and families that work different hours or people who do shift work.
How sophisticated is this sofa bed from Enchanted Home Pet?
If you’ve got a small dog that’s more at home in a chaise longue rather than a dirty laundry basket, we think they’ll love this beautiful piece of pet furniture.
Not only is it the perfect size for snuggling and raised off the floor to avoid drafts, but it’s beautifully designed to fit into your home decor and interior designed.
For dog owners that travel a lot, wondering what to do with your dog while you’re away can be a real worry.
But with this luxury pet carrier from Jet Sitter, you can take your dog with you. It’s a TSA approved carrier for dogs and other pets weighing up to 12 lbs.
Plus, it really is luxury: the washable fleece mat is soft and warm, while the 2-way expanding sides provide plenty of leg room. It can also be collapsed when not in use for easy storage.
And if you’re going on a road trip, the integrated seat belt buckles and luggage loop make sure that safety is at the top of the agenda.
Another great stocking filler, this 100% natural paw soother from the Natural Dog Company is designed to heal paws that are dry and cracked.
The balm is organic, all-natural and vegan; plus it’s made in the USA.
When it comes to dog chew toys, it doesn’t get any better than the KONG Extreme — especially if your dog is a real power chewer.
This toy is made of hard rubber and is practically indestructible, while still being engaging and interactive for your dog. It can be stuffed with treats and kibble, frozen, and the unpredictable bounce means that it’s great for exercise games too.
Another tool for training, we were really intrigued with this nosework snuffle mat from Doggiemon.
Nosework is known to relieve stress and anxiety in dogs, and this can be a great tool for dogs suffering from separation anxiety.
The materials used in this training mat are safe for a human baby to use, while the non-slip pad on the back makes sure that your dog can’t take it too far.
We haven’t met a dog yet who didn’t love these Himalayan Dog Chews, so we’re confident that they’ll be a popular stocking stuffer.
Unlike rawhide, which comes with a host of safety and health issues, the Himalayan Dog Chews are made from all-natural ingredients and according to an ancient recipe. They’re high in protein and free from chemicals and preservatives.
Plus — they’re yummy!
The final product on our Christmas wish list this year is this ice cream mix for dogs, made by Puppy Scoops and in Maple Bacon flavor.
Can you say, “mmmm…”?
All you need to do is add water and freeze, and present to your dog when they next make puppy dog eyes at you when you go to town on your Ben & Jerry’s!
Healthy and natural, the ice cream is smooth, creamy and scoopable.
