Tis the season to be merry and bright as well as spend that extra special time with family, friends and furr-babies! The howl-idays are here and with that also comes the gifts. While you might have all the two-legged special people in your life covered, it's time to focus on the four-legged loved ones! So, let's deck the halls with bones and chews and give you some pawsitively great ideas for the dog in your life.
Yes, you heard that right! A squeaky toy can work to thoroughly entertain a rowdy pup, while also working a human’s last nerve. Hear Doggy’s ultrasonic squeaky toys have a frequency between 24 and 28 KHz, which is still thrilling to a dog but nearly silent to the human ear. When chomped, this particular squeaker makes a low-key whooshing sound, like air being pushed around. Like any plush toy, this one can be destroyed by dogs who have an internal search-and-destroy mission.
A dog bed for burrowing
Does your dog love to burrow? Then, this is the bed for them! Lined with insulating sherpa fleece, the FurHaven Snuggery bed features a flexible hood, which stands up to create a cave and collapses down into a blanket to envelop your pup. There are several different colors and sizes available. An older dog (or one with back problems) may appreciate the orthopedic-foam version, and in the summer, the cooling gel-infused model might hit the spot for canines who live in warmer climates.
Enrichment Lick Mat
This one is also a gift to owners because it will keep your dog busy! When you just want your pup to chill out, a SodaPup eMat Enrichment Lick Mat covered in tasty treats will give them something nourishing to focus on. These thick rubber placemats have novelty-shaped cutouts (think little ducks or dog bones) that pet owners can smear with peanut butter, yogurt, fruit puree, or whatever their pup desires. Dogs will love licking every nook and cranny clean.
