Everyone in a family should receive some type of gift for the holidays even our furry companions. After all, they are part of our family too. Here are some great ideas to help find that perfect gift to make the celebration a little brighter.
A New Bed Most dogs love anything that is soft, fluffy and cozy to curl up in. A bed can be composed of anything from a store bought bed which can generally range any ware form fifteen dollars and up depending on how much you willing to pay. One way to save on cost is to make your own bed for your dog. This can be done by simply purchasing a basket suitable to your dogs’ size then placing a few pillows or a large blanket in the bottom. This way it can be customized to their size and most likely less expensively. Just be sure that the basket is shallow enough for you friend to be able to step in and out with little hassle. What ever choice you make this will give your dog a place to escape to and a sense of security. This will also allow them to get off of the chilly floor in the winter. If everyone has there special space, everyone will be happy.
A new food and water set:
There are countlessdesigns available today for pet food and water bowls. These very in price depending on the material they are made of and how elaborate they are. Anything from plastic dinner ware to custom bowls are available. Remember that this is something that a dog uses all day long every day so this is a highly practical gift as well.
An especially great idea for a younger dog or new puppy. Given that dogs often love to chew on everything from the furniture to your brand new shoes giving them there own treats that are just for them is an ideal way to break that habit before it starts. Try getting your dog Greenies. These give something to chew on and are also healthy. Studies show that they are easily digested and even aid in digestion of regular dog food. They also help to clean dogs’ teeth, prevent plaque build up and contain only natural ingredients. While giving your dog something they will love you will also help prolong there health.

A new leash and collar set:
Make going for a walk an even more fun experience by getting your dog a new leash. There are verities of different designs available from the classic nylon design to retractable. Personally I like retractable because these give the dog more freedom to roam a bit but also allow control by simply pressing the small stop lever on the handle. Want to really get in to the holiday spirit with your dog? Look for special holiday designs online or at your local pet supply store.
This is a very creative way to express how much you care to your dog. Gift baskets can be purchased ready made, custom ordered, or home made. Ask your local pet store if they offer this service, search the internet for places like http://www.mypetgifts.com, or design your own. A simple basket purchased as a craft store or discount store will do or even a food bowl can be used in stead. Fill the basket or bowl with any thing your dog enjoys such as their favorite treats, one or two new toys, A specially designed doggie sweater or costume or any thing else you can think of. Let you imagination do the work and be inventive. Nobody knows your dog like you do.
Overall, there are several items that you can consider as a gift for your dog. You can discover this in some of the online platforms that offer dog items for dogs. You just have to choose the right store that also offers affordable gifts.
