Mountain Wooden Dog Tag

This lightweight and quiet dog tag is a lovely upgrade for your dog’s outdated metal tags. Available in three sizes, two different wood tones, and a pawprint style is also available. You can fit a surprising amount of text on these, like your address, phone number, or a short sentiment. They’re handmade in the UK and start at just $7.84 for the smallest size.

Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Treats

Soft and snackable, you’d better hide these tasty peanut butter and banana treats from your pet until it’s time to unwrap presents. They’re made in the USA and are great for a special treat or training reward for your dog – and perfect for people that would rather not smell beef or chicken flavored treats. It’s a perfect stocking stuffer to thank your pet for their love and devotion all year round. $3.89 at

Plush Dumplings

Who doesn’t love a little Chinese food at the holidays? Your dog does not want to be left out of the take out order, so how about boxing up some dumplings for them? The carton is plush and crinkly and the dumplings have durable squeakers. You can keep your dog entertained over and over by packing up their leftovers and letting them work to get the toys back out. Fun and funny and just $12 at Bark.

Classic Dog Parka

Dogs seem much more likely to tolerate outerwear when it’s lightweight and soft, like this jacket from L.L.Bean. The quality and style we’ve known and trusted for years can help your dog feel warmer, drier, and more comfortable on your cold winter walks. It’s reversible, uses hook and loop closures, and has reflective piping for ultimate safety and comfort in all seasons. It’s reasonably priced at $24.95 and includes their one year satisfaction guarantee.

Dogwood Chew

I used to laugh about buying dogs faux sticks, but I’ve seen enough pet insurance claims for mouth and throat injury from wood splinters to know it’s actually a really good idea. The Petstages Dogwood Stick is real wood combined with synthetic materials to satisfy a dog’s natural desire to chew, while protecting them from splinters. Reviewers report that their dogs love the taste and smell of real wood, but that the stick has lasted for weeks, even with tough chewers. At just $5.51, that’s a bargain sure to make you and your dog happy during the holidays.

Chagrin Valley Pooch Pouch

Chagrin Valley is offering this bundle of doggie dry shampoo, cedarwood lavender conditioning bar, and paw salve in a lovely satchel for just $22.50. It’s the perfect gift for the dog that just needs a little spa moment. Help your dog smell extra nice without compromising the important natural oils that keep them from getting itchy during the long winter months.

For the Extra-spoiled Pooch: Mid-century Modern Dog Bed

Can you picture your furry friend relaxing in timeless mid-century modern style? Those hairpin legs! Cozy Cama makes only pet furniture, so they’ve perfected the nuances of style and function. The bed is sized to fit regular pillows, so you can wash or replace the cushion anytime you need and use any pillow sham as a cover to match your decor. It’s even elevated so that your robotic vacuum robot can fit underneath and get the pet hair! All materials are non-toxic and made without sharp hardware, so your pet is safe if they do decide to lick or chew the material. Different finishes, styles, and personalization are available, and beds start at $255.
