Christmas will be here before you know it, so now is the time to figure out your gift list. Including your pets in your gift-giving efforts helps you show them how much you appreciate them. If you are struggling to come up with the perfect gift for your furry friend, this guide can help you find pet-approved Christmas gifts for dogs and cats that will be a huge hit in your house:

Pet-Approved Christmas Gifts for Dogs

Our canine companions are happy just to spend time with us, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need some new toys and gear this holiday season! Here are a few fun and useful gift ideas for the pups in your life:

The Silent Squeaker

Dogs love toys with squeakers. They are fun to play with and help them expel some of their natural hunting instincts. However, humans do not always love toys with squeakers, especially when a dog is aggressively chewing on them. Enter the HEAR DOGGY Silent Squeaker Toy. With a squeaker frequency that only ranges between 24 and 28 kHz, dogs will enjoy the sound without disturbing their favorite humans. 

Puzzle Toys

Puzzle toys like the OurPetsIQ Treat Ball require your dog to use their smarts to reach the treats inside. Smarter dogs will be able to reach the treats faster than dogs who need a little extra time, but almost every pup can enjoy this fun and interactive toy. 

A Brand New Bed

Treat your dog this holiday season with a bed that is heavy on comfort. The FURHAVEN Faux Sheepskin Snuggery Orthopedic bed could be the perfect gift for your dog. He or she will love burrowing inside this hooded bed. It’s available in a variety of sizes and colors. You can also choose between interior options like memory foam or gel-infused bottoms. 

Pet-Approved Christmas Gifts for Cats

Cats do tend to entertain themselves in the strangest ways—empty cardboard box, anyone? Luckily, there are plenty of cat-approved gifts available that can help your kitty see just how important he is to you:

A New and Improved Scratcher

Give your cat a premium place to scratch (that’s far away from your furniture) with a new scratcher like the PetFusion Ultimate Cat Scratcher Lounge. Not only is it extremely durable to stand up to cat claws, but it also provides plenty of comfortable spots for lounging. It even comes with a one-year warranty if your cat gets a little *too* excited.

A Running Fountain

If your cat doesn’t drink as much water as you’d like, take the opportunity to get a continuous running fountain this Christmas. Options like that CATIT Flower Plastic Cat Fountain make it exciting for your cats to hydrate. It’s easy to clean and doesn’t make a lot of noise, so it can seamlessly fit into your home. 

A Cozy Cave Bed

Beds like the Cat Ball Cat Bed provide plenty of comfort for cats of all ages and sizes. They are small enough to make your cat feel safely enclosed while still big enough for a good stretch. You can choose from various colors, patterns, and even designs (like a shark). 

While your pet may not show wild enthusiasm the minute they get their new gift (some pets need to get used to them), they will appreciate these pet-approved Christmas gifts for dogs and cats
