We’ve compiled a list of our top dog-friendly gifts that are perfect for dog lovers of all kinds! So, if you aren’t sure what to give your dog-loving friends and family this holiday season, check out some of our fido-friendly suggestions below!

If your friends and family like to go out and explore, some dog-friendly travelling gifts will be happily received by dogs and humans alike! These gifts are a great way to make holiday trips and outings fun for the whole family.
Some options include making a cute doggie first aid kit, finding a durable leash for hikes, or buying a comfortable and long-lasting dog seat cover from 4Knines so your family’s cars can stay clean and protected from damage while dogs are along for the ride. Purchase some of our washable car seat covers here.
Dog toys are the obvious choice for many gift-givers since they are small, relatively inexpensive, and easy to find. However, you can turn this simple gift into something truly special by spending a little more time on the toys you decide to buy.
For example, if you are buying a toy for a small dog, make sure the toy isn’t too tough or large. Aim for cloth and rope toys to keep their teeth clean. Larger dogs will need something a bit more durable, so look for toys made from thick rubber and durable rope. These will last longer under the wrath of a happy pup.
Since dogs spend more time inside during the winter, it’s important that they have a comfortable place to snuggle up at while they are inside. Any gifts that can make dogs more comfortable during cooler months will be happily received by your friends and family!
Since dog beds can be a bit pricey and vary for every dog, opt for getting your dog-loving friends and family a dog bed cover instead. Our highly durable and washable dog bed liners help dog beds last longer by keeping them free of moisture, odors, and fur. Pick up one of our dog bed liners here!
We hope this gift guide helps you find the perfect presents this holiday season! We all know the greatest gift of all is getting to spend the holidays with our friends, family, and furry best friends. Happy holidays!
