With Christmas just around the corner it’s time to think about holiday gifts for your dog and for the dog lovers in your life. Whether your dog has been naughty or nice, Santa likes to visit every single puppy and dog in December! And, really, aren’t all dogs good at heart?

Here’s a look at some of the gifts that will be at the top of your doggy’s wish list this year.

No matter what your budget is, you can find some great holiday gifts for your pet this year.

Under $10: Look for delicious organic treats for your dog. This price range should allow you to buy a nice bag or box of terrific treats made with the very best ingredients. Check online or at your local pet store. Your dog will love them! There are lots of good brands. You can also give your dog favorites like Nylabones, Kongs, squeaky toys, and rope toys. What dog doesn’t love toys and chews?

Under $25: Look for a stocking filled with toys and treats. Zanies has a great holiday toy stocking filled with squeaky balls, rope toys, and more, but other manufacturers also offer terrific holiday stockings, too. These toys and treats can keep your pup entertained for days.

Under $50: Look for a warm, cozy dog bed for your favorite four-legged friend. Many companies make excellent dog beds around this price. Features to look for include good stuffing or memory foam for older dogs and washable covers. You can also buy heated dog beds.

Under $100: Crates and pet carriers. You can purchase your dog a terrific crate or pet carrier in this price range. Crates and carriers are great for traveling with your dog in your vehicle or if you are flying with your dog. Large dogs can also use a crate in the home as a place to nap.

There are plenty of other gifts that are good for your dog at any time such as a new collar and leash, a harness, new dinner bowls, and other things you and your dog need on a regular basis. It’s always nice to spruce up your dog’s belongings and have something new.

If you are looking for a gift for a dog lover, there are plenty of great gifts to consider. Most dog lovers enjoy mugs with a picture of their favorite breed or calendars featuring dogs. Consider having a T-shirt or sweatshirt made with a picture of your friend’s dog on the front. If you’re looking for something for yourself, consider a vacuum cleaner that picks up dog hair. That’s something that most dog owners can use! Also new this year is Bake-A-Bone, a kitchen appliance that lets you make cookies right on your kitchen counter. Simply mix the cookie batter and pour it into the cookie cut-outs in the appliance to cook. Voila! Dog cookies in any flavor your dog likes.

Don’t forget those less fortunate this holiday season. You can always make a donation to your local shelter – either monetary or by donating things they need. Local shelters often need blankets and dog food
