Let’s face it – you already have everything you need. Well, maybe not everything, but you could certainly stand to reserve a few spots on your wish list for your beloved dog. If Sparky is on your mind this holiday season, here are some things he may love.
A monthly delivery
Just like humans can get weekly and monthly packages filled with goodies delivered right to their door (Blue Apron, BirchBox, etc.), so can dogs. Any dog will love getting a BarkBox every month. According to the company, every box has at least two cool toys, two bags of treats, and something for them to chew on.
A GPS tracker
When a dog goes missing, his or her owner would do just about anything to get their companion back. With this in mind, consider gifting a GPS tracker to the dog lover in your life. Not only will these devices make it easier to track a missing pooch, but it will also give the owner peace of mind knowing that they have another avenue to explore should their beloved pet go missing. Getting the right one might take a little research, but the time and effort are worthwhile.
An electric fence
A new electric fence can keep your pup safe and secure when he plays in your yard. Best of all, an electric fence is much cheaper than having a wood one built.
A nice coat
If you like to take your dog outside with you on excursions like camping, hiking, fishing, and canoeing (or even if you just take them around the neighborhood on walks), it’s nice to give them an extra layer to protect against the wind, rain, and cold. Add a few stylish dog jackets to your wish list. There are many purveyors of dog apparel, but we like those found at RuffWear.com.
A way to be carried in style
It is the holidays, so you can go a little extravagant on your wishlist. If your dog is small enough to fit inside a bag, why not ask for a stylish tote bag to carry them around in? Doggie tote bags are especially nice for city-dwellers who have to ride public transportation.
A new place to get a comfortable night’s sleep
You spend a lot of money on your own bed, presumably. Soft pillows, a comfortable mattress, and silky sheets, perhaps? That’s because our rest is important. It’s also important for your dog. Put a new dog bed on your wishlist this holiday season. Some beds are made of memory foam, and some resemble couches. There are even dog cots.
An easy way to hydrate on the go
Are you tired of bringing water bowls and looking for a water source while out and about with your canine companion? Is your canine companion tired of being thirsty? Kill two birds and put this doggie water bottle on your wishlist. The bowl on top fills up with water when you squeeze the bottle. It’s made of food safe plastic, so you don’t have to worry about your beloved Sparky coming into contact with any strange chemicals.
A better way to exercise
It’s kind of hard to go running with your dog. It’s great exercise for you and the dog, but yeah – it’s kind of clunky. Give both of you a better way to exercise by adding a hands-free leash to your wish list. It attaches to your waist for easier control. Smart, huh?
If you doubt that your dog knows whether or not they are receiving their fair share of holiday gifts – well, they do. And they know if you’re only thinking about yourself. So avoid the dog ire and put their needs at the top of your wish list this season. You’ll find that, in the end, their needs often coincide with yours.
