Best Dog Christmas Gifts
We scoured the globe and came up with this list of Best Dog Christmas Gifts for 2013! These paw pleasing choices are sure to make tails wag everywhere! Drum roll please….
#1) Name That Cookie: what do you get the dog that has everything? A cookie in the shape of their breed WITH their name on it! You can find this product on Etsy here. Then, when you make dog friendly cookies for them, they will be basking in their glory (and all the dogs in the neighborhood will be jealous). They run $10-20 per cookie cutter and they can accommodate names up to 7 letters long.
#2) A BarkBox subscription! It’s a box of dog goodies delivered to your pups door every month and is filled with 4-6 items (usually retail value is $40 or more). They come in 1, 3, or 6 month subscriptions – it is as low as $19/month AND if you use coupon code ROIGBBX1 you get $10 off (plus they will donate $15 to our rescue for every code redeemed!). Everything in this birch box for dogs is made in the USA and can include toys, treats, hygine products, and more! The best part is, your dog will LOVE it and you don’t have to leave the house, cut coupons, or read labels – everything in it is great and you are getting a good deal. http://www.barkbox.com
#3) Freezy Pups treat pack. It’s a delicious, organic way to make cool treats for your pups. It comes with a bone bone shaped treat tray and 4 different flavors to pick from (we recommend white cheddar cheese). Aside from a nice way to cool down or a cool treat, it is a great way to soothe gums for teething pups, pups that just had dentals, or any pup that had mouth surgery too! Dogs love it during the warm and cold months! You can get a complete list of freezy pup items on Amazon here, kits (done bone tray plus organic refill packs) start at $15.
#4) Spot Bot Pet by Bissell. It is made specifically to remove tough pet stains, how perfect! For any new pet owners with carpeted floor, we highly recommend this. It has a set-in-stain and surface stain cycle as well as a do-it-yourself feature if you want to treat a spot yourself (spray the liquid and suction up to dry). The set in stain and surface stain cycle allows you to place the SpotBot over the stain, push the cycle button and the SpotBot does all the work (soaks the area, scrubbs the area, and suctions up the area). The set in stain cycle lasts 6 minutes and the surface stain cycle lasts 3. We just got one and love it. With a puppy, foster dogs, and our own dogs in the home – there is plenty to clean up and this makes dealing with it a lot easier! We like that it’s small, portable and very easy to use. The other carpet cleaning machines are a lot more work and we just need to clean a few spots here and there – it’s perfect! You can find the SpotBot by Bissell on Amazon starting around $100 for a refurbished one, $130 for new ones.
#5) Snuggle Bed by P.L.A.Y. What is a Snuggle Bed? Is it a sleeping bag? Is it a mat? Or is it a bolster bed? How about all of the above! P.L.A.Y.’s new Snuggle Dog and Cat Beds give finicky fur babies the ultimate versatility and comfort in plush beds. Sewn with dirt-resistant canvas on one side and luxurious faux fur on the other, this convertible dog bed can be molded into a variety of shapes and uses, conforming to you and your pet’s lifestyle, and offering your pup or kitty a heavenly retreat. You can the snuggle bed by P.L.A.Y. on Amazon starting at $55 here (it comes in 3 colors and 2 sizes).

#6) The Chase N Chop Walky Talky Ball, awarded best new product at the Total Pet Expo 2013! . The Walky Talky Ball is an interactive ball that moves (bounces and rolls) and, with the push of a button, “talks” to your dog with several different phrases. Playtime will never be the same with the Walky Talky Ball. Chase ‘N Chomp™ has been developed with Caitec’s trademark attention to safety, superior quality and value. Caitec Corporation has been “Creating Innovations In Pet Care For A Better Way Of Life” for 20 years. This product is brand new, we were able to get our hands on it and it should be available for purchase through your local pet retailers!
#7) Hear Doggy Ultrasonic No-Squeak Squeaker Toys. Yes, you read that correctly, this company makes ultrasonic squeaker toys which means, they are above the pitch humans can hear but dogs can still hear them! So, the dogs will still have fun and you won’t be annoyed with squeaking noises in the background at your family party, while you are on the phone, or when you are watching TV. You can find the in most dog retail stores or on Amazon starting around $6. We have the flamingo and whale – love them. Although, we would like to note that if your dog is hard on stuffed toys – they might not last very long as they are not made for tough chewers.
You can find all sorts of cool dog gifts, gadgets, toys, treats and more on Amazon but these are just a few of our favorites this year! We hope you enjoyed and your pets get spoiled this holiday season!
