With the holiday season in full swing, you need to start buying your gifts if you haven’t already. In addition to all your friends and relatives, you also need to get something for your dog!
These furry creatures stay loyal to us 24/7, so getting them one gift is the least we can do in exchange for the unconditional love that they give to us. With that in mind, here are the best gifts to give your dog this winter.
If your pup loves to chew your shoes, furniture, and blankets, then you need to buy them some dedicated chew toys. Whether you choose a tennis ball or a rubber bone, there are numerous different types of chew toys available. Unless your pet is high maintenance, they probably won’t care whether you go big or small.
However, if your pet likes to destroy things, watch out for chew toys that have squeakers in them. Some dogs like to destroy the rest of the toy just to get to the squeaker, which creates an unpleasant mess of cotton stuffing all over your house. When you buy a squeaker toy, make sure that it’s strong enough for your dog to handle.
Anyone who spends a lot of time online has most likely seen videos of dogs communicating with their owners by pressing speech buttons on the floor. These are talking buttons, and what you do is record different commands into each one and train your pooch to press the button for that specific outcome.
You can record buttons that say, “treat,” “walk,” and of course, “food.” These buttons usually come in a pack, but the more you buy, the more phrases you need to teach your dog. If you’ve ever wanted to talk to your furry friend, then this is the gift for you!
Traveling is often the bane of any dog’s existence, but it doesn’t have to be so bad if they are hanging out in a comfy crate. Many crates come with a cushion that is similar to a dog bed, so your pup can sleep during a long car ride and let you focus on the road.
However, before you purchase one of these, make sure to get the right fit. That way, you won’t have to return it if it turns out not to be the perfect size for your travelling buddy. Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect crate size for your dog.
Overall, your dog will love any gift that you give them. Still, now that you know a few of the best gifts to give your dog this winter, make this holiday season extra special.
