Your dog is just like your child, and every child loves to get gifts during the holidays. If you're looking for the perfect stocking stuffers for your pet, here are some great ideas to help you choose.
Like candy for kids, dog treats are usually a 'special occasion' food.
A new leash and collar
A snazzy new collar and matching leash will make sure your dog is the coolest pup around when you hit the dog park. But leashes and collars are more than just cute fashion accessories. A secure, well-fitting collar (with a place for your pet's ID tags) will give you somewhere to attach a sturdy, non-retractable leash. Get a leash that's about six feet long--any longer, and your pet could get too far away from you for you to control him easily. This gift will help keep your pet safe while you're walking or training.
Dog toys can be so much more than just fun playthings. There are some really clever, challenging toys that will help keep your dog entertained for hours. These are perfect for after the holidays, when everyone goes back to work and school, leaving your dog all alone at home. Look for toys designed for your dog's size and chew strength. Some even come with treats so they're ready to use out of the box.
No, your pooch isn't going to hit up the mall any time soon, but if you pick up gift certificates for training sessions, you can spend the New Year training your dog to follow your commands. Properly trained dogs are safer, happier dogs, so put this gift at the top of your list!
