Below are only a handful of awesome goodies that will not only bring fun and joy to your pet, but will also have other added benefits such as exercise and mental stimuli! Here we go!
Dogs get tired of the same old toys. Ever notice how they loose interest in a chew toy you may have gotten them is adored for the first day and then forgotten about the next? Check out these interesting gifts that will be exciting on day one but useful throughout their time in your home!
Who wouldn’t like a sip of fresh, crisp water after playing all day? I think Fido would love getting his paws on a filtered water fountain! What this gadget does is re-circulates the water, keeping it fresh and clean via a filter. It is stylish and may even help your pooch with the goop found in their eyes. Vets say to try giving your pets clean or filtered water or even distilled water as it contains less chlorine and contaminants which are found in many municipal drinking water systems. Always remember; your dog needs access to water 24/7
How about a new leash and collar?Many times our pooches have grown like a weed and we don’t seem to notice. In our eyes they are puppies still. But as your pet grows, so does their need for a new collar as well as a good leash. Make sure your pet has a nice, comfortable and CLEAN set.
Most dogs love their beds. It is a safe and cozy place all their own. This Christmas get dog a new bed. And while you’re at it, make it a self-warming bed. It is a great idea and practical if you’re living in a cold city, have no carpet in your home or have an older pup who has joint and arthritis problems.
