Everyone loves cookies. Even our pooches would definitely want to have a taste of these delectable goodies. You can always bake your own canine cookie goodies but considering that you might not know the ingredients that are great for your dog, the Miles Kimball’s Claudia’s Canine Cuisine Santa Paws Classic Gourmet Dog Cookies should be a great treat.

These dog Christmas gift ideas contain 50 of the most delicious, pet-safe baked goodies made of human-grade ingredients. Our only lament is that there really is no indication what kind of ingredients is included in the making of such goodies. One thing we can be sure of, though, is that these are freshly baked and are immediately shipped upon your order. That being said, it does have its own expiration date so you’d have to take note of it.

First and foremost, the ZippyPaws Holiday Chimney Burrow Squeaky Plush Hide and Seek is an amazing dog toy. However, these funny dog gifts have another purpose for their being: to help stimulate the curiosity of your canine pet and enhance its intelligence and trainability.

Giving Pedigree’s Dentastix as Christmas presents for pets is perhaps one of the most thoughtful things you could ever do for your pooch. This is because the relationship between their general wellbeing and the state of their dental health is undoubtedly strong.

This is especially helpful during the holidays as your pooch will also be getting a lot of doggie treats from almost every other member of your family. Your canine friend should have an excellent system of keeping its dentition healthy throughout the season and the whole year.

What Should You Get Your Dog for Christmas?

Playing the role of Santa Claus to your pet pooch this Christmas is a very noble deed. Not everyone goes out of their way to look for interesting, fashionable, and very useful presents that will show their pets just how much they treasure the company they have given their family through the years. You can never really question the loyalty and companionship that your dog brings. It doesn’t question your motives and will never complain even though it is on the receiving end of a bitter punishment. When it is sick, it won’t beg you to bring it to the veterinary clinic. Instead, it will attempt to weather the storm on its own. They love you with all their heart. It’s time to show them just how much you appreciate them and their love for you and your family.

Here are some of the things that you can get your dog this Christmas. Understand that these are general categories of stuffs that you can get for your pooch. Some of these you may already be giving all year round. You can thus, give them something that will truly up the ante.

  • Doggie toys 

Just like kids on Christmas Day, dogs, too will love doggie toys. And there is quite an ocean to choose from. However, it is imperative that you choose only those that can provide your dog not only fun and excitement but also intellectual and mental stimulation. Just as kids can benefit from puzzle toys, so do dogs as their natural tendency to hunt can be harnessed and be put to the test. Sharpening their mental skills and intelligence can help in ensuring more successful and more effective canine obedience training.

It is equally important to choose doggie playthings that are safe and free from components that might endanger their wellbeing. Steer clear of toys and playthings that are infused with harmful chemicals and other toxic substances that can undermine your dog’s health. You also need to steer clear of doggie toys that come with small parts that can be easily detached and risk choking your dog. You may be ensuring fun times but if your dog swallows these components, you’d end up looking at a medical emergency.

  • Canine comfort accessories 

Who doesn’t want to live in comfort, free from pain? Even dogs would love to lead their lives in absolute bliss, if only that were possible. While no one can actually provide a heavenly abode to their pets, you can always make life more comfortable for them. This Christmas why don’t you think of items that can make them feel more comfy?

You can give them a plush cooling bed if you happen to live in warmer climates or something with a warming mechanism if you’re located in a cold environment. Understand that pooches don’t have a very efficient system of regulating their body temperatures, often relying on their panting behavior to release excess heat from their body. So, if you can provide your pooch with a bedding or a blanket that allows it to regulate its body temperature a lot more efficiently, then your canine friend will forever be thankful. Since we’re already talking about comfort beddings, you might as well throw in a comfy pillow.

Also included in this category are smart dog camera devices that allow you to ‘talk’ to your pooch while you are away. This way, you can soothe it and reassure it that everything will be all right. This also helps address separation anxiety in dogs.

  • Dog chews and dental chews 

If you haven’t given your pet dental chews or doggie chews yet, now’s the perfect time to give in to their chewing behavior. Dogs love to chew. It is in their genes and you really cannot take this away from them. The only thing you can do is to help them redirect their chewing behavior from being destructive to something more acceptable. This is where dog chews come in. You’ve got a lot of options when it comes to dog chews. There are rope toys, rawhides, bully sticks, and other toys that are designed specifically to help dogs act out their chewing instincts. There are even dog chews that serve as treat dispensers so they get to enjoy the treat while chewing on these toys.

You can also give your pet a dental chew which is technically the same as a dog chew except that the former is specifically designed to remove food particles and debris from the gum line and teeth surfaces as well as help remove plaque and prevent tartar buildup. These chews typically have ridges or nubs that serve like the bristles of your toothbrush, making sure your pooch is able to clean its teeth properly. It’s also a win-win situation since your dog is also satisfying its inherent need to chew.

  • Feeding and drinking accessories 

Nutrition and hydration is an important aspect of pet care. Without food and water, life simply cannot continue. That is why some of the best gifts you could ever give to your pooch this Christmas holiday season are those that relate to feeding and drinking.

Let’s start with drinking accessories first. You can provide your canine friend with fully automated water dispensers or pet drinking fountains to give them fresh, clean drinking water all the time. The continuous flow of water helps prevent water stagnation which can facilitate the growth of bacteria and other disease-causing microorganisms. Many of these gadgets also come with a variety of filtration systems to help keep the water clean.

Then there are feeding stations or kibble dispensers. These come fully automated that they dispense dry kibbles in predetermined amounts within a given time frame. Of course, you can always give them more ordinary food bowls. Just make sure to get either a ceramic or stainless steel as these are generally more hygienic than plastic. Moreover, they are more resistant to chewing.

  • Training accessories 

Dogs love spending time with their masters. If there is anything else they love more, then that would be pleasing their human masters. That is why they are very easy to train compared to other pets or animals. The fact that dogs are very social and love nothing more than to please us, they are more than ready to learn a new trick or two just so they will feel valued and appreciated.

That being said, you may want to invest in training accessories such as training clickers, training collars, dog leashes, and body harnesses among others. Doggie treats can also be classified as a training tool since these strengthen positive reinforcement techniques.

What are Good Toys for Puppies?

There are plenty of Christmas gift ideas for dogs. But what if you have a puppy? We all know that puppies are like children. And like children, puppies learn a lot about their world through play. That is why toys play a very important role in puppy development. This is of course in conjunction with good nutrition and plenty of loving care from our part. But really, what are good toys for puppies? Here’s a look at some of them.

  • Interactive toys 

Known as canine puzzle toysinteractive dog toys help develop the intelligence particularly the problem solving skills of puppies. Unfortunately, majority of this kind of playthings are designed for adult dogs. As such, it is important for you to make sure that the interactive toy you’re getting is designed specifically for puppies.

An interactive toy is heavily predicated on stimulating the hunter instincts in dogs. It is believed that dogs are natural hunters and that they carry in their genes this natural behavior to be curious and nosy about things that may be considered as ‘prey’. You should understand that there are no humans to give dogs food in the wild. As such they have to fend for themselves by hunting or searching for food. Today, dogs rely on their human masters for their sustenance. This doesn’t mean that the hunter’s drive has already gone extinct.

Interactive toys stimulate these instincts to help enhance the problem solving abilities of dogs. If started early as pups, they will be a lot easier to train. As we all know, a well-trained puppy will grow up to become a highly prized model dog.

  • Teething toys 

Some people actually think that it is absolutely ridiculous to provide puppies with teethers because these are essentially reserved for human babies. But the point is that puppies, too, undergo teething process which is also characterized by sore and inflamed gums as the permanent tooth is slowly replacing the deciduous one. It is for this reason that teething toys are important. Not only are these critical in helping reduce the symptoms associated with teething, but it also helps provide a non-destructive outlet for the pup’s chewing behavior. However, it is critical to choose teething products that are made of only the safest materials.

  • Plush toys 

If you’re a fan of plush stuffed toys, chances are your pet puppy has been eyeing this for weeks. True enough, in the eyes of a very young dog, plush toys instantly trigger their innate hunter instincts. Plush stuffed playthings, especially those that resemble prey like mouse, squirrel, hedgehog, and even raccoon, do look like the ones dogs hunt in the wild. They feel almost the same, too. And if so happens that these playthings also make a squeaking noise, then all the more that your pup’s predatory instincts will go into overdrive. Feeding their innate hunter instincts can help puppies with their training as many of the training techniques are based on the inherent nature of pooches to hunt.

  • Tug toys 

In case you haven’t noticed, puppies love to bite and pull on things. They’ll latch their tiny teeth onto almost anything and then pull it with all their might. This is where tug toys can come in. you will have to be quite choosy as to the kind of tug plaything you’re going to buy. Just make sure that it is not too large for their small mouths to fit. It should also be made of safe materials without the possibility of chemicals leaching. Remember, your pup will be using its tiny mouth to tug on this gadget so you’d better make sure that it’s tough and it’s safe.

  • Fetch toys 

These types of puppy playthings are excellent for improving their physical development while also honing their skills in obedience training. Very young pups may not be able to play with fetch toys in a manner that we like and as such these playthings are best reserved for pups that have already begun their obedience training as it requires understanding of the ‘come’ command. Nevertheless, balls, sticks, Frisbees, and other similar toys can really make for an entertaining and fun afternoon for any breed of pup.

  • Commercially available pet-safe cookies 

If you’re not really good at determining what a dog-safe ingredient looks like, then you’re better off with commercially available cookies. Check the manufacturer’s reputation for any history of product recalls, though.

  • Rawhide variations

You can make peanut butter lollipops with rawhide as their sticks or you can buy some of those candy cane-shaped and colored rawhides.
