Christmas Gifts for Dogs and Dog Owners – From Chews to Kongs


Your search for Christmas gifts for dogs and dog owners ends here! These holiday gift ideas for pet owners who love their dogs will help you find the perfect Christmas gift…

Before the tips, a quip:

“My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99 cents a can.  That’s almost $7.00 in dog money.” ~ Joe Weinstein.





One of the best Christmas gifts for both dogs and dog owners is food: doggy biscuits, dog cookies, and puppy treats. A more creative and holiday gift idea is a Christmas tree sweater for dogs. But, I daresay most dogs don’t wearclothes, so this isn’t the best choice for all dog owners. It might be a fun gag gift, though 🙂

Here are several more — and more creative — holiday gift ideas for dogs…

Homemade dog biscuits. If you’re strapped for cash and don’t mind cooking dog food, why not whip up a batch of homemade dog biscuits? There are tons of homemade dog biscuit recipes on the internet. This Christmas gift for dogs will really appreciate your time and effort.

Collar and leash light. An illuminated dog collar is perfect for walking the dog on dark mornings and evenings — especially if the dog isn’t white, yellow, or neon green. And, a leash with an attached flashlight saves dog owners from carrying a flashlight. This doesn’t just keep dogs and dog owners safe; it helps owners take care of number two (it’s really hard to pick up poop in the dark!).

Dog biscuits, treats, and chews. Evidently, rawhide bones aren’t the best treats for dogs — according to my dog obedience trainer and my dog facts book, they’re a choking hazard. There are many other types of dog biscuits that are popular and delicious, such as Amazon’s bestselling Greenies Dental Chews for Dogs. This is a terrific Christmas gift for dogs, because it saves dog owners from having to brush their dogs’ teeth!

Donation to the humane society, pound, or SPCA. If the dog owner in your life truly has everything, give a donation in his or her name to a local animal rescue organization. Those places do so much to take care of orphaned and sick dogs, and they need all the support they can get!

    Yes, Christmas gifts for dog owners are best when they’re something that both the owner and the dog can enjoy! Like a frisbee, or a nerf football.

    For the longest time I used to think that gifts for your dogs on Christmas is a chew toy, and a special “snack” that they never have. Allthough its great, it goes alot further when its something both the dog/s and the owners can enjoy.
    I find that it lasts longer and our bonding is better and it means something to the dog.
