Make Your Dog an Easter Basket!

Updated on June 12, 2014

Fun Easter Baskets for Dogs

Make a beautiful Easter basket for your dog and share the fun. Dogs love toys and treats just like people do, and there are lots of pretty Easter-themed gifts perfect for filling a basket.

Include your puppy in the Easter festivities. You can hide treats or treat balls and let him find them, or you can let him smell out his basket. Use a sturdy metal pail or canvas tote bag as a basket, so it won't matter if he shakes it a bit when he finds it!

Dog Who Saved Easter

Remember to be safe - don't let your buddy eat treats made for humans. Chocolate and too much sugar can make him sick. I've found you some really cute Easter treats and toys made just for dogs, so he can enjoy the holiday along with the family.

Dog Treats for Easter Baskets

Make sure the treats in your dog's basket are safe and healthy. These are made of flavors dogs love with human-grade ingredients and safe, all-natural dyes.

Edible Doggie Easter Cards

These are just the greatest idea! Easter cards of thin crunchy rawhide, decorated with non-toxic water-based inks. Each comes with a mailing envelope too, so you can send them to friends. Top off your Easter basket with a card - you'll love the pretty design, and your dog will love the tasty rawhide.

Easter Eggs for Dogs

The Jolly Pets Egg is a sturdy ball for dogs who love to chase and fetch. The egg design makes it roll, wobble, and bounce unpredictably, to keep the game exciting.

And just how tough is it? Read this review from a lion and tiger rescue - the big cats love them!

Doggie "Basket"

Instead of a woven basket that your dog may tear up, display his treats in one of these bright-colored collapsible silicone bowls. It's a pretty and practical choice, as you can take the bowl on walks and trips.

Treat Dispensing Balls

Like people, dogs shouldn't eat all their goodies at once! Dispensing the treats in a special ball keeps your dog happily occupied and exercises his wits and his jaws.

      I'm glad that my dog can't have chocolate because I'll take all I can get ;) She'll probably get one of these neat toys you mentioned her and love that way more anyways. Nice lens!

      Great lens! This is a wonderful idea, although I don't actually have a dog. I think I will definitely be making one of these for my cat though!

      Now I feel all guilty for not giving my dogs an Easter basket. :) These are fantastic ideas - I'm going to check out those egg-shaped balls, new to me.
