Holiday Gifts for Dogs

Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? Don’t forget about Fido! Your cute pet definitely deserves a special gift or two. Read on as a Happy Valley, OR vet lists some great gifts for Fido.

Bed

Making sure your canine pal has a comfy place to sleep is very important. A new doggy bed would be a great gift for pup!

Toys

Playing is lots of fun for dogs, but did you know it also benefits them both physically and mentally? All that running and jumping help keep your pooch in shape. Playtime also beats doggy boredom by offering beneficial mental stimulation. Fill your furry buddy’s stocking with fun toys!

Homemade Treats

While store-bought snacks will definitely get your pup’s tail going, homemade goodies also make great gifts. You’ll find lots of great recipes online. Just be sure to only use ingredients that are safe for dogs. Ask your vet for more information.

Grooming Supplies

Regular grooming will help keep Fido looking and feeling clean and comfortable. Get your pup his own little grooming kit. Include brushes, shampoos, doggy dental products, and a pawdicure set.

Subscription Box

Did you know that they make subscription boxes just for dogs? Every month, your furry friend will get a special surprise batch of goodies in the mail. This is a great gift for pooches that tend to destroy their toys very quickly!

Puppy Play Zone

Do you have a yard for your canine pal to play in? Why not get your pooch a doghouse? Choose something that is well-insulated, and just the right size for your pup. If you can, pick a doghouse with the door slightly off to the side: this design is better at blocking wind. Fido may also like a sandbox to play in, though you’ll have to wait until spring to give it to him.

Clothes

Many dogs need a bit of extra protection against the cold. If your pooch has thin fur, he may really appreciate having a doggy sweater or jacket. When you go shopping for Fido, be sure to bring his measurements with you. Avoid anything that is tight, hot, itchy, or constricting, as well as anything with small parts your pet may try to eat.
