Updated on November 25, 2014

What does your dog want under the Christmas tree?

This holiday season, don't forget the furriest member of your family! Pick up some Christmas themed dog toys to spread the holiday cheer to your pet, as well as keep him or her busy while you open your own presents on Christmas morning. Your dog deserves to open some presents too!

Below I have compiled a curated list of some great Christmas dog toys that will work for puppies as well as "senior" dogs, and fit with the recommended guidelines of The Humane Society for dogs and play. These toys will not only bring your dog enjoyment, they will help your dog build brainpower, avoid boredom, and feel comfortable and secure. During the busy holiday season, where a dog's routine may be changed by travel or guests, I think it's especially important to have some new dog toys on hand to keep your dog happy!

      love the pics. My husband's parents have always had dogs until this past year. We sadly lost both in the same year. But we always bought gifts for both doggies from the kids. This will be our first Christmas without them.

      But love these pics. Too cute. Nice lens.
