Holiday Gift Guide for Dogs
We love to spoil the girls, and we're certain that you do too! The Holidays are just around the corner, and we have a round up of our favorite things that you could gift your dog, or someone you know that has a dog.
3- Bully Bunches - 25$
If your dog is anything like Herky & Milton, then he or she must LOVE bully sticks. Those can sometimes be smelly, but can keep your dog occupied for hours. This subscription service automatically renews on the 15th of each month, and you get 5 brand new bully sticks sent out to you on the 1st of the following month. You can either choose 6" or 12" bully sticks too! AND it's free shipping to any address in Canada :)
4- Balls - 10$
Almost all dogs love balls, right? Our favorites are the small ones from Kong, and the Chuck It balls. The Kong balls are the girls' favorite because it's small enough to hold in their mouth, and it also squeaks! The Chuck it balls have the best shape and weight for fetching. You can also use the stick to help you throw the ball!
5- Dog Puzzles - 20$
These un-traditional toys stimulate your dog's sense of smell, and can provide hours of fun time for your dog. I found two on Amazon that are really fun, one from Trixie, and the other from Outward Hound. The one from Trixie is easier and more appropriate for small dogs. The Doggie Blocks from Outward Hound would be more suitable for large dogs.
6- Treat dispensing dog toy - 15$
If you want your dog to move around or jump around a bit more to deserve its treats, this might be the toy for you! It doesn't offer a very precise throw, and is also quite loud, but can be fun! I found this one from Asocea on Amazon for 15$.
7- Dog Hoodie - 33$
This is great to keep your dog warm AND cute at the same time. This is perfect for dogs who don't get too cold in the winter, and also for the switch between seasons. This one is from GF Pet, and is available in 3 different colors :)
8 - Winter jacket - 45$
Something that will keep your dog super warm this winter: a GF Pet winter jacket! This new jacket called the St-Moritz from this year's collection is oh so luxe and the color is just perfect!

9- Rope Leash - 49$
A gift that would make the hooman happy too. Our new collection of rope leashes is our BEST one so far with beautiful neutrals and some pops of pastels. We're super proud of this collection, and know they'll be appreciated as a present this Holiday season :)
Head over here for the entire selection.
10- Dog boots
11- Aromatherapy pillow
For the dog that suffers from anxiety, how about an aromatherapy pillow? :) From Noble Pet Company, this gift is unexpected, useful, and can be personalized too!
12- Personalized dog tag
There are so many companies that offer dog tags, but my favorite find this year was the ones from Italian company My Family. These are so unique and beautiful. What's most amazing is that they offer charms in almost ALL dog breeds. No kidding. These can be personalized and shipped directly to your house :)
I'm hoping these suggestions help you in your Holiday shopping :)
Thanks for reading, and happy shopping!
