Last week, we shared all the reasons why our furry friends mean so much to us. They’re family, so naturally, they also deserve some holiday cheer (even if they don’t really know what it is they’re getting). Nevertheless, we’re sure your dog will love one (or all!) of these five canine Christmas gifts.
I feed my dogs Dailo and Lola mostly raw and all-natural food, so why shouldn’t I wash them the same natural way? Y.U.M.’s Gift pack contains a dog wash made with essential oils such as citronella, lavender and cedarwood, plus a cleansing spray infused with lavender and lemon patchouli. I secretly want to spray this on myself.
This dog coat is cozy, warm and reversible! The otter green side is made of water-repellant waxed-canvas, while the classic Filson plaid side is a sporty and hip (a perfect to match for your Filson Double Mackinaw).

You’re staring at Fido, scratching you head and thinking to yourself, “What in the heck are you?” If you’ve got a mixed breed pup and are trying to figure out what type he or she is, WisomPanel.com is the place to go. The site is filled with lots of Q&A that can give you great insights into your dog: My dog Lola turned out to be 1/2 Aussie (beauty), 1/4 Pointer (her vocal chords and prey instinct) and 1/4 Chihuahua (those crazy ears, of course, and she’s convinced she’s small enough to sit on your lap).
No, I don’t believe in dressing up dogs (unless it’s Halloween. Even so, Dailo has been the same DaiLion for the past eight years!) But protecting paws from dangerous ice-melting chemicals is key during the winter. That’s where these protective dog boots come in. Your pooch won’t be able to lick that toxic stuff off his paws. And for those of you who have a shoe-free household, it’s so much easier to keep paws clean in the snow or rain with these than it is to wipe off four paws (or more!) after every walk.
