Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Santa Paws is checking his list, and he's checking it twice - your dog has been nice this year, if you can forgive a few misunderstandings about pooping in the hallway and annoying the cat.
Here's your dog's top ten picks on their Christmas list this year:
1. A Brand New Bed
Washing your dog's bed will get rid of household allergens and irritants like dust and dirt. But the more you wash, the more it will lose its shape. If it's been a long time since you washed or replaced your dog's bed, why not buy a new one for Christmas?If your dog is coming into their senior years, you may want to invest in a memory foam bed that supports their joints. Arthritic, senior dogs particularly need a bed that keeps them warm, as the cold tends to aggravate joint conditions.
2. A New Blanket
>Some dogs like to be bundled up before they go to sleep. Does your dog look cold when they're curled up in bed? They might just stretch out and relax once you tuck them in with a blanket. Athick blanket with waterproof backingis great to have as a seat protector in your car or on your furniture.
3. Tuffs Fruit Flavoured Treat Bone
This is a multipurpose toy that every dog will drool over. The sweet, fruity scent keeps your dog interested while they chew. You'll also love that it is hollow and can be filled with any tasty treat. Load it up with peanut butter, mashed banana, tinned fish or meat-flavoured baby food for a long-lasting treat that can be enjoyed in a crate to keep your dog busy when you're not home. For an even longer lasting treat, load it up and freeze for a few hours.These Fruit Flavoured Treat Bones come insmallandlarge.
4. Your Dog's Very Own Christmas Stocking
You have a stocking hanging from the hearth for every member of your family... but what about your pup? They'll love reaching into their very own Christmas stocking to pull out fun toys. This stocking comes pre-loaded with toys your dog will be thrilled to receive on Christmas morning.
5. Shuffle Bone Puzzle Toy
Educational toys are a great way to challenge your dog and help them develop problem-solving skills. How fast can your dog learn to push the sliders on the Shuffle Bone puzzle to reveal treats that you hide inside? Some dogs use their paws, some use their nose, to work this interactive toy. It's amazing to see your dog's eyes light up when they "get it." This puzzle toy is great for beginners.
6. Snugglesafe Microwavable Bed Warmer Pad
If it's already getting cold in your home, you can give this gift early. You'll love that you can use it again and again to keep your dog warm throughout the night. Just microwave and place in your dog's bed. This is great for all dogs, especially puppies, and seniors with arthritis. You just might want one for yourself!Get the bed warmer in our shop.Â
7. Clicker Training Supplies
Clicker training is a powerful way to teach your dog just about anything. It can be used to train tricks, to desensitize your dog to stressful situations, and to teach your dog alternative behaviours to replace bad habits. You make the clicking sound with the clicker every time your dog performs the correct behaviour, then follow up with a treat. The clicker is a consistent sound that your dog will quickly learn means they did something right. You use the clicker to take a "snapshot" of the behaviour; it's a faster and clearer way to say, "good dog!"Find educational DVDs, clickers, target sticks and more training supplies in our shop.Â
8. Skinneeez Toys
Are you preparing to buy yet another batch of stuffed toys, only for your dog to dissect them and leave fluff all over the house? If your dog swallows the stuffing in their toys, it could cause a digestive obstruction. It's safer to get stuffing-free toys.
