Our dogs are part of the family, so let them join in on the fun of receiving a new gift for Christmas, birthdays, or just because! Below are some ideas, that are all online and affordable. Senior dogs love to get toys too!
The above three items are very popular right now. You have the Donald Trump chew toy, the giggle ball and the really cute toy box to keep all these dog presents in after opening! A quick way to clean up. Here are some more ideas:
The 5 pack of critters is an awesome deal, especially if you wanted to replace your dog's toys. My own dog loves the flat animal toys (first picture) because she can whip them around and no fear of any stuffing coming out. These are tough. The next item is more for you, but treat yourself to a walking/hiking pack for your dog, includes bowl and water bottle and you can carry snacks. A glow in the dark collar to stay safe is another option.
You can get ready made Dog Christmas Stockings complete with chew toys, or a gift basket designed just for them, or the classic Kong chew toy that you can fill with yummy treats. All online. Just click the pictures to find out more.
Funny Dog Toys
The first one above is a fetch ball with teeth so that when the dog chews on it, a funny smile forms. The next is "Mr. Bill" chew toy, and then a Farting Giraffe. All will make your dog happy and make you laugh. They say laughter is the best medicine and stress reliever! So, if you want to give them new toys and be entertained at the same time, these are funny. Just click the pictures to find out more.
Dog Coats and Pajamas
Maybe this is the year you add a warm coat or hoodie so they can still enjoy the outdoors in the winter, or maybe a cute set of dog pajamas! Hopefully this has given you some ideas for gifts this year for your pooch! There is a huge market for pet toys, clothes, and more, so while you are shopping for loved ones this year, don't forget your dog!
DIY Dog Toys
If the budget is super tight this year, why not get creative and make your own? You can braid thick rope for a chew toy, bake your own dog biscuits (RECIPE HERE) and using the dollar store or supplies around the house, you can make a cookie jar.
Check out the video below for ideas on making dog gifts and toys from old t-shirts. If you are creative, or you have a dog that tires of purchased toys, then try these for something a little different. It is definitely a way to "upcycle" old t-shirts and shirts.
The above are simple to make and your dog will love them. Have a good clean out of your closet and see what you can find. This is especially a great way to use shirts that are torn or stained or that are not really a good donation option, so instead of throwing them out make toys.
Either way, no matter what age your dog is, whether puppy stages or senior doggies, giving them something to play with and interact with will keep their brains stimulated and also keep their jaw and teeth in top shape.
It is nice to see an older dog get excited about new toys. Just like children, they will tire of ones they have had for years, so this year get creative, and either purchase some new replacements for them to enjoy under the tree or create your own.
