Christmas Gift Guide for your Dog

1st December
Nowadays, our dogs are so much more than just pets, they’re an integral part of the family who provide us with unconditional love and joy. So, when it comes to special occasions, like Christmas, it is impossible to leave them out. When we gather together, make merry, eat delicious food and share gifts, we want our pets to join in the fun. It is important however that we prioritise our pet’s health and happiness whilst joining in with the festive fun.

Your friends and family won’t be the only ones who will be getting something special this Christmas; we are confident you will be treating your pet to something new too. Whether it is an extra yummy treat or a fun new toy, it is really important to make sure that the presents you’re giving your pup are safe for them to enjoy. A trip to the emergency vet will only ruin your festive fun and put your dog at unnecessary risk.  

Here are the do’s and don’ts of gift-giving, along with our present guide for your dog and the dog lovers in your life. 


  • Stock up on your dogs’ favourite treats so they can join in on the festive fun. 
  • Buy them some new fun and interactive toys that will entertain them and stimulate their minds. 
  • Is it time for a new bed? Make sure your dog is comfortable and buy them a brand-new dog bed and blankets to keep warm. 
  • Focus on buying eco-friendly toys for your pup. This will reduce potential plastic consumption as well as positively impact the environment. 


  • Avoid giving your dog dangerous toys that could be a potential choking or strangulation hazard. 
  • Steer clear of dressing your dog up in fancy dress, this can cause unwanted stress in your pup. 
  • We all see those big rawhide bones in pet shops, but these can be dangerous to your four-legged friend. They are known for causing an upset stomach, and issues to the digestive tract as well as blockages. Along with other types of bones, they can also splinter, becoming a choking hazard and causing damage to your dog’s throat. 

Let’s avoid an unwanted visit to the vet this Christmas and ensure our pups are happy and stress-free.
