Christmas is upon us and most people are busy thinking of gift ideas for their loved ones, and that includes the furry ones too.
I came up with a list of items that you can gift to dogs in your life, no matter what season you are in or what part of the planet you call home. Dogs are here to enrich our lives with their love, wittiness, goofiness, cuteness, happiness, life lessons, and a whole lot more.
So how can we enrich their lives? I believe the minimum is to feed them nutritious food, to show them that they are safe, loved and protected, to be responsible parents to them, and to walk them twice daily unless they are taken out for a really nice and long hike once a day.
Here is the list of gift items that can be very stimulating, engaging, and entertaining… In other words these items can help us enrich our dogs lives.
Please note that all of the following items can be found at most major pet stores, and online.
• The linkables
• Nina Ottossons Puzzle Toys or similar puzzle toys that make the dog to think creatively to retrieve his food or treats.
• Most dogs love to chew on raw marrowbones. It keeps them busy, entertained, and is a wonderful natural toothbrush for dogs.
• I think every dog should have at least a couple of Kongs. Stuff them with yummy treats and store them in the freezer. Pull one out when you need one.
• A session or a package of sessions with a professional positive reinforcement dog trainer. Well-behaved dogs are welcome to more places and you won’t have to leave them at home as often. They are also happier as they know what is expected of them, and what they can expect from you. No room will be left for anxiety and stress to ruin your relationship with your dog.
I would love to hear your feedback, so please make a comment or send me an email with your thoughts, ideas and suggestions.
If you like this list, please share it with your dog loving peeps!
