Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? Or are you just getting started? Your canine buddy definitely deserves a special present or two! Read on as a local Norwalk, CA vet lists some holiday gifts for dogs.
If your pooch could write Santa Claws his own wish list, we suspect that toys would be at the top of it. Actually, making sure Fido has plenty of appropriate toys is very important! You can opt for classic dog toys, like rope pulls or tennis balls. Or, try something more modern, like a mechanical ball launcher.
Fido is always adorable, but he manages to be extra cute when he’s snoozing in a comfy doggy bed. This would make a great gift for your four-legged friend! Senior dogs and large breeds may prefer orthopedic beds, while smaller dogs might like beds with raised sides.
Did you know that raised dishes are more comfortable for dogs to eat from than bowls on the floor? Give your furry buddy’s dinnerware a ‘pupgrade’ and get him elevated bowls. Fido may also enjoy a pet fountain.
Many dogs find a good massage very soothing and relaxing. Book your canine pal a session with a pet masseuse! This is a great option for senior dogs.
Man’s Best Friend will definitely be thrilled with a package of his favorite store-bought treats. However, if you like cooking, you can also make Fido some snacks. This is a wonderful gift for Fido’s four-legged buddies, too! Just stick to recipes that use only dog-safe ingredients.
Could Fido stand to work on his petiquette? Enroll him in doggy obedience classes. Of course, your furry pal won’t be particularly impressed by seeing his enrollment information on paper. Treats and toys will get that tail going!
Want to give your dog a gift that keeps on giving? Sign Fido up for a subscription box. You also get to watch your furry best friend’s adorable reaction whenever he realizes that he’s got mail.
Fido may not love baths, but he’ll look—and smell—much better with proper grooming. Puppy shampoos, brushes, nail clippers, paw balm, doggy dental products, and pet wipes can all make great stocking stuffers!
Happy Holidays from all of us here at Ashton Animal Hospital, your Norwalk, CA veterinary clinic. Please feel free to contact us anytime!
