Dogs are the best. Seriously! What other animal is always excited to see you when you come home? They truly live in the moment, love unconditionally, and can even lower your risk for heart disease. When you have a dog, you love your dog and that love kind of permeates through the rest of your life. Even little things like gifts suddenly become dog-centric.
This holiday season, get the dog lovers in your life something they will love along with their canine best friend. Check out this wishlist of gifts perfect for people who don’t just like — they LOVE — their dogs!
Ball-Launching Fetch Machine
We’ve all been there. You’re sitting at your friend’s place, just trying to relax and enjoy yourself, but their tiny little pup just keeps bringing you their tennis ball for a seemingly endless game of catch. You can’t say no — just look at those big puppy eyes! — but you wish he’d eventually stop and let you have a moment of peace.
If that scenario is familiar, your friend or loved one deserves a fetch machine this holiday season. These cute little robots launch tennis balls up to 50 feet. Once the dog has his prize possession, he can return it to the machine’s funnel and the robot launches it again… and again. You may even finally see the sight of that dog getting tired of fetch… maybe.
Okay, this might sound like the most exciting gift, but think about it this way: What’s the worst fear dog owners have? Losing a pooch sounds like an absolute nightmare, which is why giving a GPS tracker as a present makes total sense. These tracking devices will help owners find their missing pet with ease, and they’re especially useful if the canine in question has a tendency to wander (or run) off at a moment’s notice. Naturally, you want one that works well, so explore the options on the market and select the best one that fits in your budget.
Pet Subscription Box
If you are the type who loves to give a gift that keeps on giving, a subscription box specifically curated for dog owners is the answer to your prayers. Every month these services deliver a package filled with chews, treats, games, toys, and more straight to their doorstep. A lot of these services source their products from small, independent companies and only include foodstuffs that are safe and made with whole ingredients.
If your friend or loved one’s dog tends to rip through toys at the pace of a cyclone run amok, a subscription box that provides constant replacements will keep the pup entertained and the owners quite happy. This is also a great option for homes with a dog AND cat as the pet lovers can gift the box to kitty once it’s empty.
When you give a dog lover a gift that taps into their love of canines, you get double the gift-giving pleasure. Not only will they love your thought and care, but the pup himself gets to enjoy the holiday cheer just like the rest of us. For a loved one who has a mischievous pup, a GPS tracker gives them the gift of peace of mind. For the hyperactive pup who doesn’t understand the words “no more fetch,” a ball-launching fetch machine may finally wear him out. And for the pet home that is constantly covered in the fluff of destroyed plush toys, a subscription box delivers to their doorstep every month for an endless supply of fun.
