When you’ve given your dog toys and treats all year long like I have given my German Shepherd puppy, how do you make Christmas special for your pet? You think what should be inside the box, wrap them up, and place these fabulous finds under the tree.
Best Gift for the Nervous Dog In Your LIfe
If you are planning to travel with your dog this winter, ThunderShirts are one of the best gifts that you can give your pet this holiday season. The ThunderShirt is available in all sizes from extra-extra small to extra-extra large. It costs less than $40 and is worth every penny. The ThunderShirt is designed to exert gentle pressure to your dog to calm anxiety attacks. My puppy is a good traveler, but storms make her anxious. She stays underfoot while the thunder rolls. So, if storms, excessive holiday company, separation, or travel upsets your fur kid, this is the ideal gift. It is an effective anxiety reducer.
Best Gift for the Bored Dog in Your Life
To offset the winter doldrums and the typical holiday weight gain from indulging in all the holiday treats, the best gifts for your active dog is the Lixit Dog Agility Starter Equipment set. The set is sold separately. The tunnel, agility weave poles, agility jump bar, agility jump hoop, and agility closed tunnel are ways to engage your pet in using its natural instincts while providing an opportunity for necessary exercise for both of you. It is a high energy cardiovascular workout. My puppy and I were using natural obstacles for an obstacle course, but this will make our run much more fun.
Best Gifts To Surprise the Dog in Your Life
The BarkBox is a fun way for your gift giving to continue for months. The BarkBox is mailed to your pet on the fifteenth of each month. It contains a variety pack of toys, hygiene products, and treats. Your pet will never receive any repeat items during your subscription to BarkBox. Each box is especially chosen with your pet in mind. This might change your dog’s attitude toward the mailman as well. Now, my dog loves getting the treats out of the package brought by our mail carrier.
The Toys R Us brand is no longer just for human children. Toys R Us has branched out into the market making toys for fur kids as well. Christmas would not be complete without a stocking filled with goodies for your favorite furry friend. Teaming up with PetSmart, the exclusive Foam Frisbee is my toy of choice for large dogs, such as my German Shepherd puppy who loves to fetch. This Frisbee is soft and easy for the fur kids to pick up. The hard plastic Frisbee that we were playing with was hard for her to pick up off the ground, and the hard plastic hurt her mouth. The Foam Frisbee’s design with cut-outs give the dogs a mouth hold so that they can retrieve it quickly and prevent doggy frustration. Our playtime lasts longer now that her mouth does not hurt. The lightweight design prevents neck injury as the dogs play with the toy. This toy will be a winter warm up while playing out in the snow. The Frisbee floats, so if your dog is a Labrador or another water-loving breed, this toy is the ticket to hours of fun on land and at the lake. A variety of tug toys and plush toys for hours of enjoyment are available in this brand as well.
Another great item is the Paws for Thought Booster Bath Seat. This makes bath time fun and less stress for you and your pet. Giving your pets their own custom bath tub will help you perform the task more efficiently and will reduce calls to the plumber to clear the drain clogs created by pet hair going down into your main drain lines. My German Shepherd loves bath time now.
Use these ideas to make this the merriest Christmas ever for your pet! Happy Holiday Shopping!
