'Tis the Season of Giving...

The holidays are a time for giving – and if you’re like over 80% of our readers, your gift list probably includes your loyal pooch. Picking out presents is hard enough as it is, especially since your dog can’t speak up about what he wants this year. To make it easier on you this holiday season, we’ve compiled a list of the top ten gifts for dogs.

#10 Bones

Every dog will appreciate a good bone, whether it be rawhide, plush or plastic.

#9 GPS Collar Device

These nifty devices may be more of a gift for you, but it is cool nonetheless. If your dog tends to stray, it’s a good way to keep track of him and you can even set the device to send text messages when your dog wanders too far out of a chosen vicinity.

#8 Ropes

These come in all shapes, sizes, and a variety of colors. Some ropes even come combined with balls or squeaky toys to make one ultimate toy – what more could a pup ask for?

#7 Puzzle Food Bowl

Make the everyday task of mealtime more enjoyable and stimulating by getting your dog a puzzle food bowl. Food is hidden in secret compartments that your dog then needs to figure out how to get to in order to enjoy his meal.

#6 Plush Toys

Plush toys for pets are always a bestseller. Get one with a squeaker in the middle – mildly annoying for you, but super fun for your dog.

#5 Dog Toy of the Month Club Membership

Make the holidays last all year round with a dog toy of the month club membership. Instead of one present, your dog will get a new present every month. They also have dog treat of the month clubs for foodie Fido’s.

Bling out your dog’s collar this holiday season. You can rough it up with spikes, add some personalized dog tags, bedazzle it with rhinestones – make your pup feel like royalty this year.

#3 Reflective Accessories

Present your dog with the gift of safety this year. Reflective accessories are a great idea for the evening stroller. If you take a lot of walks at night, it’s good for both you and your dog to wear reflective gear in order to avoid any accidents.

#2 New Dog Bed

Splurge a little this year and get your dog a nice new bed, perhaps something made of down feathers or memory foam. Sure most dogs can fall asleep anywhere, but that doesn’t mean they don’t appreciate a good bed.

#1 Reindeer Antlers

Okay, so this one is actually more for you. But come on, who doesn’t want an adorable holiday photo of their pooch in reindeer antlers? Can you say frameable Christmas card?
