Which Gift Should I Get For My Dog?

SitStay Blog: Which Gift Should I Get For My Dog?
The Holiday season is right around the corner and while you know exactly what your pup's heart's desire is, you may be at a loss for what to get your neighbor's, your grand-dogs, or your friend's dog. To help out, we've put together a gift-giving guide that breaks down the different types of dogs and the ideal gift to wrap under the tree for them.

Tough Chewers

These are the dogs that can make the stuffing fly out a toy in minutes and never look back. If you're looking for a toy that will keep Fido distracted (and keep the "snow-covered" ground outside) West Paw created a line of Zogoflex Toys that have a one-time replacement guarantee to stand up to the bite.

Tuggers

If your dog is a tugger too, we would recommend the West Paw Zogoflex Bumi.

Prefers Treats

If your dog is a tough chewer but isn't toy motivated there are some treats that can help to distract them from chewing on things they shouldn't such as bully sticks or fish skins.

Cuddle-Bugs

Does the pup in question have a softer side than the aggressive chewers listed above? Then you'll want to check out the plush-toys that offer a soft buddy that they can take to bed with them. The Kong Cozie's offer different styles to fit your dog's personality and size.

Puppies

Puppies are always popping up around the holidays and you'll want your friends to be prepared to welcome their new family member. A great gift for new puppy owners are training treats. Puppies have a lot to learn and you'll want to help by offering them quick and easy treats to help give them (and their new puppy) the best possible start.

Senior Dogs

On the other side of the scale are senior dogs who have given so much love and joy to their families over the years. You'll want to reward these dogs for their service with a more gentle toy such as a Kong Senior which is softer on their aging gums and teeth, or if they are more of a treat-dog, Cloud Star offers a large variety of soft and chewy treats.

Working Dogs

Maybe your loved one's dog goes above and beyond the call of a family member and is a working dog. These dogs can be harder to shop for. An option you can do is take a great picture of them to be used on an ID card and gift it to your loved one. Treats are also great because, with all dogs, the learning phase never ends.

Every dog is different but every dog deserves to feel loved and surprising them (and their humans) with a thoughtful gift is a great way to express that love. Which type of dog do you have? We would love to hear in the comments below!
