After a long year, the holiday season is finally upon us! It’s been a stressful and unique time for everyone, including your pup. But in many ways, your pup has probably enjoyed it as well. After all, if you were working at home at any point, that meant more time with you! So, this holiday season, why not think of some gifts for your pup to enjoy? Here are some of our ideas.

NON-TOXIC DOG TOYS

Looking for some new toys to entertain your pup both indoors and out? We love non-toxic options, which are thankfully more and more readily available. Although you can find more affordable toys, we know you want the safest option for your pup. Some good brands are Kong and Multipet. Kong offers a wide variety of toys for different level chewers! Multipet has a huge range of stuffed toys, heavy-duty rope toys, and more! Awesome tools to keep your dog’s brain stimulated.

TREATS

At The Good Dog Spot, we know the importance of rewarding your pup for good behavior, learning a new skill, and more. But what kind of treats are you giving your pup? We know you want to give your furbaby the very best, so that’s why we included treats as part of this guide. Consider giving your dog a special kind of treat they’ve never had before. You can’t go wrong with high quality dehydrated meat options. Check out Pet Center, Inc – we carry their “Quackers” which are raw dehydrated duck breast, and their beef steaks which are raw dehydrated beef lungs – YUM! Another enticing treat is Gibson Dog Treats which are artfully crafted in the USA. They have quite a few flavor options, great for getting your dog’s undivided attention during a training session!

GROOMING ESSENTIALS

Grooming is an important time to bond with your dog. Make grooming fun and safe for your pup this holiday season by investing in some high-quality products. Look for shampoo and soaps that do not contain toxic ingredients like artificial colors, fragrances, and isopropyl alcohol. The fewer ingredients you can find, the better. The brand we use and love here at The Good Dog Spot is Tropiclean Aloe & Coconut. It leaves your pup’s coat clean, soft, and shiny without any of those harsh smells!

GEAR

Finally, what kind of puppy gift guide would be complete without some ideas for gear? There are several options you can consider. The first is to invest in a warm and comfortable jacket to keep your pup cozy on wintertime walks. Many of these are waterproof. Also, now that it gets darker earlier in the evening, it’s important to have adequate reflective gear for both you and your dog to make your presence known to oncoming cars. We regularly carry the brand Zack & Zoey. They have hoodies, and jackets that have a reflective strip right on them! We are huge on safety for your beloved companion and Lupine Pet is a great company to do just that! We carry their collars, leashes, and harnesses. To top it off, Lupine Pet is Lifetime Guaranteed! This means Lupine Pet will replace any collar, leashes, or pet gear that has been damaged during normal pet-related activities, even chewing accidents!

For another practical option, invest in a bamboo dog collar to give your pup some serious style and comfort, or upgrade their dog bed to something even cozier. Any of these ideas are sure to be a hit!
