Holiday Gifts for Dogs

With the holidays officially upon us, many people are busy choosing the perfect gifts for their friends and family members. Don’t forget to pick up something for your dog! Fido is an important part of the family, after all. Here, a Westminster, MD vet lists some great gifts for your pup.

New Bed

Making sure your canine companion has a comfy bed is very important. If Fido is a large dog and/or is in his golden years, get him a good orthopedic bed. Smaller pups may prefer beds with raised sides, while dogs that sprawl may prefer regular beds.

Mechanical Ball Launcher

Is chasing tennis balls your pet’s favorite thing ever? If so, Fido may love a mechanical ball launcher! Just be sure to choose one that is the right size for your canine friend.

Doggy Dishware

Did you know that many dogs find eating out of raised dishes much more comfortable than using bowls on the floor? Eating off regular bowls can actually strain your furry pal’s neck and back. Get Fido a dinnerware ‘pupgrade.’


Toys are absolutely crucial to Fido’s health and well-being. They also make great gifts! Fill your furry buddy’s stocking with some fun new playthings.

Homemade Treats

Homemade treats, like cookies, are a big part of many seasonal celebrations. Why not make your dog some snacks? You’ll find lots of recipes online. Just stick to ones that use dog-safe ingredients. Of course, your four-legged pal won’t mind store-bought treats, either.

Pupscription Box

Want to give Fido a gift that will keep his tail wagging all year long? Get him a doggy subscription box! Every month, your canine pal will get a box of goodies in the mail.

Doggy Daycare

Do you have a playful, energetic pup on your hands? Consider enrolling Fido in puppygarten or doggy daycare. Your furry friend can spend time every day running and playing with his friends.

Spa Day

Just like people, dogs often enjoy being pampered. Book Fido a doggy massage or a warm water swim. If your pet is a senior, ask your vet about pain management options.


Do you have a yard for your fuzzy friend to play in? Get Fido a doghouse to hang out in when he’s outdoors.
