Everyone loves a good present, but what most people, and animals, appreciate even more is a little quality time. Your dog loves the treats you bring home to him, and wants to share them with his best friend.
Whether it’s a special occasion, or you simply want to treat your furry buddy, these gifts can lead to a great experience for the both of you.
Dogs love treats! Treats, especially healthy ones, can lead to a nutrient filled life with your pup. Using treats as training or behavioral motivation will ensure that your pup not only learns quickly, but loves his reward. You can give treats for good behavior, or even just the fact that your dog is the greatest dog in the whole world.
We recommend all natural treats, like Treats Happen: Beef Liver. This snack is guaranteed to make your pup’s mouth water, and have him begging for more. These treats are made from 100% Canadian beef, with no preservatives, dyes, or additives!
Who doesn’t love toys?!
Toys will always be a great way to bond with your dog. Whether you play a game of tug-of-war, fetch, or even hide and seek, toys are a perfect training tool and provide hours of entertainment. There are many different kinds of toys, and you may have to try a few before finding the one your dog loves most.
Our favorite toys are Hugglehounds! Especially ones like the Hugglehounds Endless Squeak Moose. This toy is tough, and continues to squeak after it’s been punctured. This is a great toy for dogs who love squeakers!
3. Dog Shampoo
Dog shampoo may seem like a strange gift, but it truly can lead to a great experience with your dog. Giving your dog a bath helps strengthen your bond, provides quality time, and gets your dog smelling fresher than ever, meaning you’ll want to snuggle him more!
We recommend natural dog shampoos, like the World of Angus Dog Shampoo. Our favorite is the Cedar Pine! These shampoos are made from organic ingredients, ensuring that they are the safest products for your pup. Each shampoo is packed with nutrients, making it perfect for dogs with sensitive skin. These shampoos are safe for natural waterways. So, lather up your pup and send them out in the lake!
4. Collars and Leads
Collars and leads may seem like a gift that benefits the human more than the dog, but that is a myth! Yes, stylish collars and leads can make a bold fashion statement, but they can also provide a great deal of comfort for your dog. If you find a collar that fits your dog properly, it will be much more comfortable to wear for longer periods of time. Tracking down a solid material is also beneficial to you as a pet parent. This way, you don’t have to worry about replacing the collar very often.
We recommend the Filson Webbing Dog Collar! It’s durable material makes it perfect for active pups, as well as dogs who love to swim. You don’t have to worry about getting this bad boy wet, as the material is easily wiped clean, no matter how dirty it gets!
5. Dog Blanket
Giving your dog his own blanket is like giving your dog his own piece of heaven. Most dogs love to get cozy, often on furniture, and a blanket is the perfect balance between getting comfortable and getting away with sleeping on the couch.
If you’ve got snuggly dog, we recommend the World of Angus Dog Blanket. This dog blanket is not only soft and comfortable, but it is made of antimicrobial material that fights bacteria, stains, and moisture. This is the perfect blanket to cuddle with your pooch on, without having to worry about dirt sticking to your sofa.
6. The Dog Sweater
A sweater is the perfect excuse to take your dog out on an adventure! A nice, handsome piece of clothing will not only keep your dog warm, but set him apart from the rest of the pack. Just look at how great this Schnauzer looks in his World of Angus Dog Sweater!
Our Dog Sweater is made of a similar material to our Dog Blanket. This antimicrobial and water resistant material will protect your dog from becoming damp and uncomfortable. We suggest these sweaters for pups who love to explore the woods, or even just stroll along the ocean front.
7. Dog Bed
A proper dog bed can and will change your dog’s life. If your dog is prone to hip and joint pain, overheating, inflammation, or restless nights, a memory foam bed can turn his world around in the best way possible. By giving your dog the gift of health and happiness, you are also giving yourself more quality time with your best friend.
The World of Angus Dog Bed is made from human grade memory foam, and covered with a soft, plush top. This bed is designed to provide comfort for dogs of all shapes, sizes, and ages, as well as aid in healing many health issues. You can read more about our Dog Bed on our website, as well as this informative article.
8. Traveling Gear
Traveling, whether it be camping, a road trip, or a visit to a local beach, is the greatest way to spend time with your dog. There are many gifts you can give your dog that will aid in the travel experience!
The Filson Short Bowl may seem like a small gift, but this puppy has the potential to be the Swiss army knife of doggy items. This bowl is not only highly durable, but is capable of holding water, food, and anything else you need to put inside of it. It is light, compact, and can either hang off of your belt, or easily fit in your pocket. A gift like this is a great excuse to take your dog on an adventure!
There are many gifts you can give your dog, but the most important one of all is time. Pick up some of these treats, and spend a little extra time with your best buddy today!
