Not another mug or bumper sticker for your dog-loving friends! These gifts for dog lovers are sure to be a success.
Gifts for Dog Lovers They Will Love to Receive
This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.
Do you know how to pick a dog lover out of a crowd? Invite them over to your house and they will immediately seek out your dog, petting and talking to them as if they are the most interesting beings in the room. Because, let’s just face it, the dogs ARE the most interesting beings in any setting.
So what do you give your dog lover friends for the Holidays? Another bumper sticker that says “my golden retriever is smarter than your honor roll student” or “my husky is more stubborn than your ex-wife”?! No… you shop from this list of awesome gifts for dog lovers because these are gifts they can and WILL use!
If you follow me on social media, you already know we have two Siberian Huskies: Jupiter (a 2-year-old male) and Juno (a 3-year-old female). They are majestic-looking creatures, but getting them to pose for pictures is a much less glamorous experience, which is why some of the pictures I am including are out-takes because they are funny and they show the dogs’ personalities.
Useful and much-needed gifts for dog lovers:
Regardless of how well-trained a dog is, accidents happen! The stain and odor remover from Simple Solution is one of those “pet supplies” you want to keep on hand at all times, having one in every bathroom is a smart move!
Did I mention that our huskies are stubborn?! Well, our female is less than interested in “doing her business” when it rains, because wet grass is not her jam. She doesn’t care when I call her “a disgrace to Siberian Huskies everywhere.” If she can do her business without getting wet feet that’s what she will do, which is why the Simple Solution Extreme Pet Stain and Odor Remover is a household staple for us. We live in the Pacific North West, where it rains A LOT, so the number of days Juno has to go outside and get her feet wet are plentiful.
Simple Solutions Extreme Pet Stain and Odor Remover is also an appropriate gift for families with elderly pets as it safely and effortlessly removes organic stains and smells from upholstery, bedding, flooring, and fabric toys.
Accidents happen, stains don’t have to.
Fun fact: huskies don’t smell like “dogs” and they rarely need baths. UNLESS they get into an absurd about of mud and dirt, which our dynamic duo has been known to do MANY times.
We always keep bottles of dog shampoo from Natural Care+ in our shower downstairs. As I mentioned, we live in one of the rainiest parts of the country and our dogs love creating mud holes in our backyard.
My social media followers have seen plenty of pictures of our two huskies in the shower, covered from snout to tail in glorious mud.
Thankfully, we know the Oatmeal and Aloe Vera in the Soothing Oatmeal Dog Shampoo from Natural Care+ won’t irritate Jupiter’s sensitive skin and the goat milk leaves his coat soft and shiny clean.
When he has one of his (many) allergy flares, the Tea Tree Oil and Aloe Vera in the Itch Relief Dog Shampoo calm his nighttime itchiness. Natural Care+ dog shampoos are a part of our treatment and grooming regimen for both dogs.
If your friend’s dog is a digger, mud-lover, lake/ ocean swimmer, or simply an active dog these dog shampoos will be greatly appreciated as part of a “dog lover gift basket”.
Dog Toys from Multipet
As I am writing this, our two huskies are playing tug-o-war with one of their toys from Multipet. Our dogs love to engage each other in play with one of their coveted toys. Their toys from Multipet keep them active and mentally engaged and stimulated during their never-ended play sessions.
Our toys from Multipet have stood the test of time. The squeakers are loud, oh so loud, and incredibly durable. It’s up to you whether that’s a good or a bad thing.
Any well-curated gift for dog lovers should include a solid dog toy option. The toys from Multipet stimulate the dogs with varying textures, bright colors, and rewarding sounds when the right areas are squeezed.
Dog parents everywhere know the key to a well-trained dog is positive reinforcement rewarded with verbal praise or a tasty treat. A dog’s favorite snacks are called “high value treats” and that’s exactly what the Charlee Bear dog treats are for our two huskies.
When I leave the house, the dogs know to go take a nap in their crates. Since we introduced them to Charlee Bear Bearnola Bites and Grain-Free Meaty Bites, I just have to put on my shoes and the dogs retreat to their crates, awaiting their US-made “high value treats” from Charlee Bear.
Charlee Bear natural dog treats are made with ingredients you could find in any pet parent’s kitchen pantry.
These delicious treats (I judge by our dogs’ reactions) are great training tools, rewarding snacks, and praise for good behavior.
Our huskies’ stubbornness melts away at the sight of a Charlee Bear snack bag. These treats are a must-have for dog lovers everywhere.
Spoil the dog lover in your life with these four useful gifts they will appreciate receiving this holiday season, to celebrate a new puppy or simply as a “just because you are a great friend” treat.
Not only will your dog-loving friend cherish your thoughtfulness, but you are also sure to get extra wags and dog kisses next time you see their dog.
