Holiday Gifts for Dogs

The holiday season is officially here! As you start making lists and shopping, don’t forget about Fido! Your canine buddy definitely deserves a special gift or two. Read on as a Walnut, CA vet lists some great gift ideas for dogs.

New Bed

One of the best things you can do for Fido is to get him a new bed. Older dogs and large breeds may appreciate the extra support offered by an orthopedic bed, while smaller pups may like bolstered beds.

Automated Ball Launcher

Do you have a super playful pooch? Does your dog want to play 24/7? Get your furry friend an automated ball launcher, and let him run after tennis balls to his heart’s delight. (Note: tennis balls can be choking hazards for larger breeds, so be sure to get one that is the right size for Fido.)


Toys aren’t just fun for dogs: they’re actually very important to our canine pals’ health and well-being. Get a wicker basket, and fill it with fun playthings for your pup. Of course, as far as Fido is concerned, the best doggy toy around is you! Take time to play with your pet every day.


Nothing gets that cute tail wagging like the thought of a yummy treat! If you really want to pamper your pet, give him a boneless steak, or a plain hamburger. Store-bought snacks are also fine. You can even make some holiday doggy cookies. Just look online for pet-safe recipes.

Gift Box Subscription

There are gift box subscriptions for almost everything now. Man’s Best Friend can also get a package in the mail every month, filled with toys and treats just for him. Of course, you may still want to put a few things in Fido’s stocking, to hold him over.

Doggy Spa Day

If you really want to pamper your pooch, book him a date at a doggy spa. Fido may really enjoy a relaxing massage or a warm-water swim!


If your pet has thin fur, he may appreciate a doggy sweater or jacket to wear in bad weather. Just make sure your canine pal’s clothes fit properly, and are not hot, itchy, or constricting. Avoid anything with small parts, like buttons, that Fido may try to chew.
