Dog Gifts: 17 Ideas for Christmas Dog Presents for 2017

Dog Articles

It’s on its way!  Time to start thinking about what Christmas Gifts to get everyone in your life.  But don’t forget about the one that truly counts–your dog!   For all the furry-tailed love directed your way, of course, your dog deserves a Christmas Present, and we have several ideas for the perfect Dog Gifts.  While shopping for your dog, don’t forget about your friends’ and relatives’ dogs too.  If you love to antagonize those people, some of these presents have the ability to really grate on one’s nerves.

Interactive Dog Gifts

West Paw Zogoflex Zisc 

We love this disc.  It’s perfect for those just starting out with the Frisbee.  It’s not a hard plastic so you really don’t have to worry about any accidents or cut up mouths.  In addition, when they chew on it there won’t be any jagged plastic pieces to cut your hand.

Dog Gifts West Paw

Coolrunner Pet Treat Launcher Training dog food catapult

This is a fun dog gift and can keep you and your dog occupied for awhile.  Load it up with hard dog treats, push the button and let them fly!  It can also be used in training your dog.

West Paw Zogoflex Hurley Durable Dog Bone Chew Toy 

The second product from West Paw, the Hurley Bone.  I know the title implies it’s a chew toy; but we use it for a fetch toy.  When you throw this bone, it has a very unpredictable path once it hits the ground.  If you get a good bounce, it can easily end up anywhere.  This unpredictability keeps your dog on its paws so to speak.

Chuckit! Classic 26M Launcher 

This is one of the most perfect Dog Gifts I ever received (I mean my dog ever received).  This Ball Launcher saved me!  Before I got this toy, I use to come home from the dog park in pain.  My shoulder throbbed for hours from throwing a ball.  Once we got the ChuckIt, my shoulder pain went away.  By using this thing, the ball went 3 times farther and my dog wore out 3 times quicker.  If you get this, be sure to choose the one that uses regular tennis balls.

West Paw Design Jive Zogoflex Durable Ball Dog Chew Toy

I know, not another West Paw product.  Sorry, but these products are quality and if you don’t leave them laying around, they last forever.   In addition, their products are made in the USA!  This ball is a little bigger than a tennis ball and has the same characteristics of the bone–a wicked unpredictable bounce.  If you need to wear out your dog, this in one of the toys that will do it.  Another piece of advice…be careful with this thing in the house.

Self-entertaining Dog Gifts

Allstar Innovations Wobble Wag Giggle Ball

This is a fun dog toy.  It’s a ball that makes giggle sounds as it moves.  There are holes so your dog can pick it up.  On the downside, you have to pay attention that your dog doesn’t really chew on it because it is not a durable chew toy.  Also, the sound can really start to aggravate.  However, if you have a special person that has a dog and you want to annoy them this might be a perfect dog gift.

Kong Classic Dog Toy

The KONG, old reliable in Dog Chew Toys.  There’s a reason that this chew toy is ranked number one over at Amazon.  A solid 40 year reputation, a durable toy, and fun to throw.  In addition, shove some treats in it for at least 5 minutes of peace.

ZippyPaws Holiday Jigglerz Squeaky Santa 

Not just a regular squeaky toy.  It actually squeaks when it’s shaken.  Also, no stuffing, which is great when it evidently gets torn.  The reviews indicate that it performs well under pressure  (a dog’s teeth pressure that is) and is fairly durable.  This would make an excellent stocking stuffer for your Dog.

OurPets IQ Treat Ball Interactive Food Dispensing Dog Toy

This is one of those toys that can keep your dog occupied for awhile.  However, it also has the possibility to drive you nuts!  So it would be the ideal dog present for that relative that bought your daughter drums for her Birthday.

Bubbletastic Bacon Bubble Machine for Dogs 

We know, it sounds crazy, but Dogs love this thing.  This machine is exactly what it says it is, a Bacon Bubble machine.  Check out the video!

Healthy Dog Gifts

Big Dog Harness No Pull Adjustable Pet Reflective Oxford Soft Vest for Large Dogs Easy Control Harness

If you’re not into dog collars and your dog is a bit unruly this might be the perfect dog gift.  The thickness of the straps help evenly distribute the weight of your dog.  This can also be used to secure your dog in the car.  It is also reflective which is a huge bonus for early morning walks.

Outward Hound Fun Feeder Slow Feed Dog Bowl

This bowl is ideal when it comes to dinnertime.  Every night my dog literally wolfs down her food, and then proceeds to beg for everyone else’s dinner, which isn’t healthy for us humans or the dog.  This bowl solves both issues.  Plus, it’s dishwasher safe.

Happy Dog Pet Water Fountain 

How many times have you went to the outdoor dog bowl to see some kind of science experiment coming to life?  This Fountain will change that!  No more changing out that water bowl.  When your dog is thirsty, they step on the peddle and BAM!  Cold H2O!   Beware that the peddle needs pressure to operate, so a small dog might not be able to trigger it.

High Tech Dog Gifts

iFetch Too Interactive Ball Launcher for Dogs

This toy is pretty much self-explanatory.  Dog drops ball in and the launcher propels the ball.  Then the dog chases the ball, fetches the ball and drops the ball back in.   There are two different sizes for this, so make sure you get the right size for your dog.  Check out the dog video below starring Buddy the rescue dog and an iFetch.


The Best Dog Selfies! Pooch Selfie: The Original Dog Selfie Stick 

I’m not going to lie, this thing is either the wackest dog thing ever invented or the greatest.  Is your dog photo shy?  Does your dog get anxiety when you pull out the camera?  If they do, we think this might be the solution you need.

PetChatz HD: Two-Way Audio/Video Pet Treat Camera w/ DOGTV, Recording, Scents, and Motion/Sound Detection

Odds are if you miss your pet during the day, they miss you even more.  This device is a two-way video and audio device, so you can pretty much chat with your dog whenever.   It also has a treat dispenser and a scent diffuser.  In addition, you can record the video and the audio of your exchanges.  This works via laptop or smartphone.  If you really want to amp it up, there is an accessory called the PawCall.  That enables your dog to hit a button and actually call YOU!

Furbo Dog Camera: Treat Tossing, Full HD Wifi Cam and 2-Way Audio, Designed for Dogs, Works with Amazon Alexa

If the petchat above is a little above your price point, then this device might work.  It does have two-way audio and treat dispensing capabilities.  However, it is only one way video.  One cool feature is the bark alert.  You’ll receive push notifications to your phone if Furbo hears Barking.  In addition, this works with Alexa.
