Holiday Gifts for Dogs

December 1, 2020

Have you finished your holiday shopping yet this year? Or are you just getting started? We probably can’t help much with picking out gifts for your boss, or that aunt who already has everything. However, we can suggest a few things that will get your dog’s tail wagging. A local Cornelius, NC vet lists some of them below.


Man’s Best Friend is always cute, but he’s extra adorable when he’s spotted a yummy snack, or when you have a dog biscuit in your hand. Treats are probably the most popular gift for dogs. Just try to stick to healthier options. Don’t go overboard with fatty foods.


Toys are actually very important to Fido. They help him stay active, prevent him from getting bored, and give him a great way to work off those doggy zoomies. Keep your canine buddy’’s personality in mind when shopping. Different types of toys serve different purposes for Fido. Some, like plush toys, satisfy dogs’ natural prey drive, while others provide comfort or mental stimulation. Give your pup a variety to choose from.

New Bed

Is Fido’s pet bed getting worn out? A new one is a perfect gift. It’s important for dogs to be able to sleep comfortably, especially as they age.


Do you have a fenced yard? Fido should live indoors, with the rest of the family, but he will enjoy having a little place of his own.

Pupscription Box

Does your furry buddy go through toys faster than you can replace them? Consider signing Fido up for a doggy subscription box. We probably don’t have to tell you how cute it is watching dogs get excited over their ‘mail.’

Grooming Supplies

Your canine companion may not get as excited over grooming supplies as he would a package of bacon or a chew stick, but he will appreciate feeling soft and clean. Doggy dental chews, paw balm, pet toothpaste, and other doggy beauty products all made great stocking stuffers. They also help keep Fido healthy and comfortable.


If your four-legged pal has thin fur, he will appreciate a bit of extra warmth in winter. Get Fido a comfy doggy jacket or sweater. Just make sure that it fits him well, and doesn’t restrict his vision or movements.

Happy Holidays! As your Cornelius, NC veterinary clinic, we are dedicated to giving your pet the best care possible.
