Things to consider when choosing Christmas gifts for dogs

Safety –Check labels to ensure they’re dog friendly, and if you’re buying clothes, make sure they fit properly without obstructing their movement, breathing, or vision.  

Cost – It’s easy to get carried away at this time of year but remember you don’t need to spend a fortune to show your pup you care, so set a budget in advance.

Be selective – While it might be tempting to buy a gift because it’s trendy - if it’s not suitable for your pet, it will be a waste of money, so keep your dog’s personality in mind.


How to give your dog a Christmas present

Use dog-friendly wrapping paper – Buy plain or dog-friendly wrapping paper, but make sure they don’t eat it.   

Keep it hidden – Keep your gift on a higher shelf rather than under your tree to avoid the risk of your pup sniffing it out before the big day.

Help them – You may need to open the present at one end to make it easier for your dog to paw open.

Choose a time – Giving your dog their gift at the start of the day may help keep them occupied, or you may want to wait until later if you feel they’ll get over-excited.
