Best Dog Toys

Updated on September 30, 2011

Don't forget your dog at Christmas

All year round we love our pet's, we feed them, train them, keep them safe and have so much fun spending time with them.

Too often during the holiday season we are so busy buying Christmas gifts, cooking food, meeting relatives, playing with the kids, getting drunk, getting stressed out that we forget that our pet's are there; this can become an upsetting time for your pet as they really don't understand why your attention is elsewhere.

This article is a big shout out from dog's, "please don't forget us at Christmas"!

OK so this is a bit tongue in cheek but I have been driving myself mad trying to find the best christmas gift's for my dog's, they are not really dressing up type of dog's so I have been trying to find something different but with a festive theme. During my research I have found plenty of fun items for dog's and cat's; so I have decided to offer you some of these ideas.

Hope you find the ideal gift and remember a dog is for life not just for Christmas.

Dog Christmas Costume and Hat

As it's Christmas it makes sense to start off with the festive costumes and hats.

A word of warning; not all dog's like getting dressed up so be aware of your dogs mood. Another thing to watch out for is the children thinking the dog has just become a novel toy to play with, this could all become too much for your dog.

Costumes come in all shapes, sizes and colours from a simple bandanna to a full Santa suit.

  • Santa Suit
  • Elf Suit
  • Santa Hat
  • Christmas Tutu
  • Christmas Bow Tie

Whatever you choose make sure that your dog doesn't pull bits off and swallow them.


Christmas Dog Toys

Some of the best dog toy suppliers have launched theirChristmas ranges such as Planet Dog, Grriggles and Pet Co.

I would avoid buying cheap dog toys from the nickel and dime store as they often pose a risk to your dog's health, swallowing cheap rubber and poisonous paint can mean a very expensive trip to the vet over the festive season.

  • Squeaky Toy
  • Furry Friends
  • Christmas Stocking
  • Dog Bone
  • Reindeer

If you don't fancy a Christmas theme why not read my review of the best dog toy in the world "in my opinion".

Christmas Dog Treats

Over the Christmas period we have a tendency to slow down a bit, we often do things that we wouldn't normally do.

All year round we feed our dog's the right diet, exercise them regularly and generally look after their health.

Don't allow your dog to eat all the scraps from the table or be hand fed by the children, instead buy them some festive dog treats.

  • Christmas Dog Cookies
  • Treat Bones
  • Gift Packs for Dogs
  • Luxury Treats for Your Dog
  • Home Made Dog Treats
  • Dog Chews and Sticks
  • Multiple Flavours
  • Dietary Controlled Dog Treats

Whatever you decide; never over feed your dog, diets in the new year are for humans not our canine friends.

Christmas Gift Set for Dog's

If you really want to pamper your dog at Christmas treat him to one of these fantastic gift set.

They come in all varieties:

  • Toys
  • Treats
  • Grooming
  • Clothing
  • Aromatherapy
  • Music
  • Value for money
  • Dog Training Aids
  • Dog Hygiene Products

There literally everything you need for a pampered pet.

Designer Dog Gifts

This section is a little bit of fun.

I am gobsmacked at the range of designer products you can buy for a dog and the prices are unbelievable.

Personally I would never spend this amount of money on a gift for my wife let alone my dog but you may be different.

If you want to really splash out take a look at the following luxury dog gifts.

  • Dog Carriers
  • Dog Beds
  • Dog Houses
  • Dog Feeding Systems
  • Dog Collars
  • Dog Leads
  • Dog Crates

Which ever you decide just don't let him chew it or do his business in it.
