What to Get a Pet (or Pet Lover) for the Holidays

The holidays are upon us, and perhaps you are still looking for last-minute gifts for a pet-loving pal. There are so many choices out there, it can be overwhelming. Raleigh Pawz understands your dilemma, so we have compiled a list of gifts we think your pet-loving friend (or their best friend) would truly love.

Roodie Pet Pouch Hoodie

Nothing’s better than a warm, snuggly hoodie on a cold day to make you feel all cozy inside. But what makes it better? A pocket just big enough for your pint-sized pet to snuggle with you! Give your pet-loving pal this gift of togetherness. They (and their pet) will love you forever.

PupSocks Custom Socks

Turn your friend’s pet into a wearable work of art! Grab the most flattering pic of your friend’s pooch or kitty and magically transform it into a truly unique and useful gift they’ll never give away at a White Elephant.

ChuckIt! Sport Launcher Dog Ball Thrower

Some dogs just can’t get enough of playing ball. They could go all day and night and never get tired. But their owners do. With the help of ChuckIt!, your pal can throw the ball much farther than they could otherwise, and experience less fatigue and soreness. And their pooch will be quite impressed with your friend’s improved “athletic ability.”

Thermo-Snuggly Sleeper Heated Pet Bed

It’s cold out, and all creatures love getting toasty and warm. Your friend’s pet will love snuggling up in this comfy, cozy bed. And it’s  surprisingly reasonable, not much more than a standard bed. On those chilly nights when the house just never seems to get warm enough, Fido or Fluffy will be forever grateful.

Rescue Dog Wines

If your friend is planning on throwing a big New Year’s Eve shindig, they will sure appreciate some libations for the big day. How about buying some fine wine that also helps rescue dogs? Fifty percent of company profits go to support rescue dogs and charity missions, according to the company website. And with wines like Predominantly Poodle and Bubbly Boxer, how can you really go wrong?

Outward Hound Dog Brick Plastic Interactive Pet Toy

If your friend’s dog can’t resist puzzles and tunneling for buried treasure, this is a gift that will keep them entertained for hours on end. Fill with treats and let them figure it out. Your friend’s dog will have the sweet joy of reward — and your buddy will have hours of entertainment watching the fun. And plenty of photo ops to boot!

Dog Shaming 2020 Day-To-Day Calendar

We love our pets — but can’t help but laugh at their ridiculous antics and naughty deeds. See furry pups immersed in deep guilt and remorse for their actions — be it stealing the family pizza, or taking care of business in the middle of the floor when you have company over for dinner. Yes, their shame is great. But your buddy’s laughter will be greater.

Link AKC Smart Dog Collar with GPS Tracker and Activity Monitor

A gift that could save your friend — and his best friend — from a broken heart someday. GPS tracking locates a missing pet — and helps bring them home. The clever collar has a variety of other reporting functions, like activity level and temperature. It’s also waterproof up to 3 feet for 30 minutes.

Furbo Treat-Tossing Dog Camera

The Furbo is part pet security, part Skype, and part fun toy. Furbo alerts you when your pet is barking or anxious. And it will toss your pet a treat to keep it stimulated and entertained. Your friend can also let their pet know they’re thinking of them, thanks to Furbo’s two-way voice chat system. It’s not quite as good as being there — but it’s the next best thing!

Embark DNA Dog Test Kit

Is your friend’s mangy mutt part Pekingese? Tiny bit terrier? Half husky? Let your pal wonder no more! One swab will let them know the facts. Kit tests for 250 breeds. It also will alert your friend of their dog’s potential health issues.

Friends Forever Interactive Laser Cat Toy

Few cats can resist the laser pointer. This toy takes the original to a whole new level. Set the timer and the speed and pattern you want and presto! Instant kitty entertainment! A perfect gift for the cat that needs a little more stimulation and exercise.

Frisco Hide and Seek Plush Gingerbread House Puzzle Dog Toy

A curious pup can’t resist a good puzzle — and how better to entertain them than with a hide-and-seek toy with a holiday theme? Let Fido dig out an assortment of sugarplums like a candy cane or a gingerbread man. Add some edible sugarplums of your own to make it extra exciting.

How to Speak Dog Book

A dog tries to communicate with you every chance they get. But sometimes, try as they might, they just can’t get their point across, and vice versa. What do they mean when they stare at you for hours? Lick their lips? Knock over their water bowl? This book is intended for young adults, but we older adults can glean some wisdom from its sage pages.

Cats on Catnip Calendar

Even the most reserved kitty goes a little bonkers when they get hold of this green herb. This hilarious calendar features pictures of cats soaring through the atmosphere in crazed, whacked-out joy.

BarkBox Subscription

A gift that keeps on giving! Every month, your friend’s fur baby will get a box of new and tasty goodies and toys. They will jump for joy when the box arrives, knowing they have all that new stuff to explore — and eat!

Highwave AutoDogMug

Keeping dogs hydrated on walks can be challenging, at best. Juggling a dog dish and bottled water can be a real hassle. This invention makes canine hydration super-easy — just squeeze the bottle and the bowl automatically fills. A simple solution!

Hexbug Mouse Robotic Cat Toy

Your friend’s kitty won’t be able to leave this toy alone! The toy mimics a live mouse with random movements and a wiggly rubber tail. They will feel like a great tiger in the underbrush, stalking elusive prey. Hours of fun!

There you have it. We at Raleigh Pawz hope that we have given you some helpful holiday ideas. And we wish you and your furry loved ones a wonderful and safe holiday season!
