12 Must-Have Dog Gifts for Christmas 2016

Christmas is on the way. Have you found a great gift for your special pup? If you’re running a little behind on your Christmas shopping, have no fear! Here’s a list of 12 gift ideas to give your pup the Howly Jolly Christmas he deserves.

1. Outward Hound Hide-A-Squirrel Dog Toys

This soft doggy puzzle will keep your dog coming back again and again. Just stuff the plush squirrel squeak toys into the log and watch your dog go to town! When Fido has finally grabbed each squirrel, just stuff them back in to keep the fun going! This gift also comes in a variety of shapes and styles, so there’s a version for just about every dog.


2. 2-in-1 Pet Glove: Grooming Tool + Furniture Pet Hair Remover Mitt

It’s not a bad idea to keep a pair of gloves around to deal with the winter chill, but this 2-in-1 Pet Glove is something you’ll want to have all year long. This one-size-fits-all glove will help you finally get a handle on your dog’s shedding, and the texture of the glove makes grooming a positive experience for your dog. The rubber tips of the glove collect hair while massaging the dog’s skin, and the velour side can pick up hair from furniture and carpets. Make a New Year’s resolution to end the shedding problem in your house with the 2-in-1 Pet Glove.


3. Furbo

It looks like something from The Jetsons, but the Furbo is a gadget that you can pick up for your dog today! Featuring an HD camera equipped with night vision, a microphone, a speaker, a sensor, and Wi-Fi capabilities, the Furbo is a cutting-edge product that helps you keep in touch with your dog anywhere you go. View your dog from home on your phone, talk to her, and even toss her some treats with the app. With the Furbo, you’re never truly that far away from your furry pal.


4. Blueberry Pet Vintage Ugly Christmas Sweater

People have long enjoyed the tradition of wearing hideous Christmas-themed sweaters, so it’s only fair that their pets get to join in on the celebration/humiliation. As an added bonus, Blueberry Pet Vintage Ugly Christmas Sweaters also have matching human versions, so both you and your dog can turn heads together at this year’s Christmas party!


5. Petpost Tear Stain Remover Soft Chews

Does your dog have a case of the Christmas blues? Well, these chewables will remove the unsightly tear stains commonly found on Maltese, Chihuahuas, Shih Tzus, and white-fur breeds. This supplement uses a combination of FDA-approved herbs and other nutrients to eliminate tear marks. Bring back your dog’s natural beauty with Petpost soft chews.


6. Pet Gear Easy Step II Pet Stairs

Is your dog just a little too little to make it to her favorite resting spot? Could she use a boost getting into bed? If so, you may want to consider putting a Pet Gear Easy Step II under the tree this year. The stairs are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, so there is an option for just about every type of dog out there. Also, each set of stairs is covered with its own machine-washable carpet, so you can freshen them up after repeated use.


7. Bulldogology Premium Dog Car Seat Covers

Your dog has had his fill of dashing through the snow, and now it’s time to pack up and head back home to warm up near the fire. Naturally, the last thing you want is wet and muddy paws on your upholstery, which is why a Bulldogology Premium Dog Car Seat Cover can make a handy addition for car trips with your pet. The set up time of this waterproof seat cover takes less than half a minute, and it’s machine washable, so you can drive even the dirtiest dog around with confidence.


8. Trixie Mad Scientist Game

You know your dog is a genius, so here’s a Christmas gift that lets her show off her brilliant side! Trixie’s Mad Scientist game comes with three “beakers” to hold your dog’s treats. She’ll have tons of fun learning how to tip the beakers over and coax out the treats. This puzzle will stimulate your dog’s brain while giving her the opportunity to burn off some excess energy, and it also includes lids with holes of different sizes, so you can customize the challenge level for your favorite four-legged scientist.


9. Planet Dog Lump of Coal

While we usually like to think of our dogs as little angels, the reality can often be an altogether different story. Dogs make our lives great, but mysterious spots on the rug, late-night howling sessions, and taste-tested furniture can still land them on the Naughty List. Luckily, there’s a Christmas gift that will delight your dog while also delivering the appropriate amount of public shame: Planet Dog’s Lump of Coal. This festive chew toy is about the size of a tennis ball, and it stands up to some of the most determined chewers. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer!


10. Max Launcher Dog Ball Launcher

This tennis ball launcher is fun for dogs, children, and children at heart. Reviewers on Amazon have been singing its praises, citing the durability of the launcher and its throwing distance. The launcher tosses tennis balls far enough to give your dog a good workout, which means you’ll never have to worry about icing down a sore shoulder after an intense fetch session ever again. And the Max Launcher also boasts hands-free pickup, so you and your dog can share the fun, not the slobber.


11. Musher’s Secret Paw Protection Wax

While many dogs have coats to protect them from the elements, their paws are another story. Hot pavement and sand can create their own problems, but sensitive paw pads are especially vulnerable to winter weather. Musher’s Secret is a special wax designed to guard paws against the painful cracking that often comes with exposure to the elements. It may not make the most fun stocking stuffer, but there’s no doubt that your dog will appreciate the added paw pad protection.


12. Claudia's Canine Cuisine - Santa Paws Classic Gourmet Dog Cookies

Naturally, Christmas is a time for the family to pig out on some of the season’s best treats, but where does that leave poor Fido? Kibble and biscuits are nice, but shouldn’t your special little guy get a taste of the season, too? Well, if you’ve been looking for some fancy treats for your favorite furry family member, Claudia’s Canine Cuisine may be exactly what you’ve been looking for. Featuring an assortment of 50 beautifully baked stocking stuffers, this gourmet gift will keep your dog howling for more. And, since they’re made with human-grade ingredients, you can even leave a few out for Santa!
