Happy Holidays! Have you finished your shopping yet? Don’t forget to pick up a few things for your dog! After all, Fido is part of the family, too! A Mesa, AZ vet lists some great gifts for dogs below.

Toys

Toys make great presents for Man’s Best Friend. It’s always adorable when Fido runs up to you holding his favorite plaything! Just choose toys that are the right size for your furry buddy.

Beds

Did you know that dogs spend about half of their time sleeping? A new bed is a great gift for your furry best friend! This is even a good gift for pups that already have beds. It’s always nice to have options!

Massage

Is your dog a senior or a large breed? Does Fido suffer from bone/joint issues? Book your canine friend an appointment with a pet masseuse!

Treats

We probably don’t have to tell you that our canine pals are very, very enthusiastic about food. Treats are a great gift! Store-bought treats are fine, but you can also make Fido’s cookies if you like. Look online for great recipe ideas. Just be sure to stick to ingredients that are safe for dogs.

Grooming Supplies

While Fido may not be particularly excited to find shampoo and paw balm in his stocking, this is a great time to take advantage of sales and stock up on some doggy necessities. Of course, you’ll also want to give your pet some toys and treats.

Pupscription Box

Subscription boxes are great little luxuries. Getting a box of surprises in the mail is always nice! This is just as fun for Fido as it is for us. Plus, you get to watch your pup’s adorable reactions whenever he gets his box of goodies.

Training

Could your dog stand to work on his petiquette? If so, training may be a great option for him. This will benefit you, too. Your relationship with Fido will be much better—and less strained—if he is obedient and well-behaved.

New Gear

There are all sorts of cool new gadgets that you can get your pooch, such as mechanical ball launchers, automated laser pointers, and collars with GPS trackers. A doggy water bottle with an attached dispenser is another good option.
