10 Gifts to Treat Your Dog This Christmas

10 Gifts to Treat Your Dog This Christmas

Christmas is approaching, which means that, as a dog owner, you will likely purchase your furry friend a gift. For domestic dog owners, this is in the form of treating your pet and giving them their presents whilst family members open theirs. For those who own worker dogs, it can be a way to thank them for their hard work and reliability over the past year.

When you imagine a dog toy, you may think of a tennis ball or fluffy teddy bear. This can understandably put off owners of larger, stronger dogs as the toys will only last five minutes. It is why we have come up with a series of 10 durable gifts that you can sink your teeth into this Christmas, whether they are a Great Dane or a Chihuahua!


A problem many a dog owner will encounter is their dog chewing on their bed. There are several reasons why this happens, but as an owner, seeing the contents of your dog’s bed scattered across the floor, or the edges of their bed missing is not the best sight to behold!

To counter this, Mad About Pets created Premium Chew Tough Beds, built to resist even the most destructible of dogs. There are plenty of features to ensure it is both chew-proof and durable:

  • Full galvanised, steel-capped edges
  • 18mm phenolic ply base
  • Chemical resistant
  • Rust proof
  • Washable

We all want our dogs to be safe and secure whilst travelling, but when it comes to the transportation of medium to large dogs, there are not many options available. Unlike smaller dogs, larger dogs are unable to fit on the back seat or passenger seat. So, to fix this, we created the Dog Transit Boxes.

Our Dog Transit Boxes provide the perfect solution for transporting your dogs safely and securely:

  • Well-ventilated and easy to clean
  • Contains any mess
  • Doors are made from stainless steel
  • Bar or mesh inserts
  • Heavy-duty ball bearing hinges for extra strength
  • Able to be opened one-handedly for ease of use

Our new Countryman range has been developed with the working dog in mind. It is the perfect gift idea for your dog, especially if you use specialist equipment such as harnesses and handling gloves, as everything will be in one place for ease of use.

The Countryman range allows you to choose transit boxes paired with storage drawers underneath. There are several features of the Countryman range that make it ideal for you and your needs:

  • Lockable drawers to keep your equipment secure
  • Tailgate flap for ease of use
  • Either a single or double dog box for safe, secure transportation of your pet

Dogs love to chew. Whether you’re an owner of a domestic or worker dog, it can be a struggle to find a toy that is durable enough for your dog to play with and chew without it falling apart.

The Big Twizzler is the ultimate high-value reward toy for medium to large breeds and enthusiastic tuggers. It is Tug-E-Nuff’s largest dog training toy yet and is a guaranteed hit for dogs who like to tug from a distance, a sure-fire winner with flyball competitors and ideal for use as a chaser.

If you’re looking for a fun, interactive toy for not only entertaining your dog but you too, then the Talking Paws Recordable Training Buttons would be the perfect gift.

  • User-friendly for all ages

  • Buttons are re-recordable so you can easily teach your dog lots of words and phrases


For those dogs who enjoy mental stimulation whilst also using their sense of smell, the Nina Ottosson Challenge Slider interactive toy would be perfect. The puzzle is ideal for dogs who tend to get bored easily and need an engaging activity to keep them stimulated. Your dog will enjoy sniffing and pawing for treats as they discover the specific steps needed to get a tasty reward!

Another great choice for dogs who like to use their sense of smell and hunt out treats is the Rebelpaws Nosework Activity Mat. Dogs use their sense of smell to explore the world, and the snuffle mat is a great choice for encouraging a natural environment for your dog to forage for food.  Snuffle mats also slows down feeding times, so if you have a dog who likes to eat fast, this can help prevent them from getting digestive problems.

  • 6-panel mat with a different activity on each one
  • Machine washable
  • Ideal for small to large dogs
  • Encourages foraging instinct

Dog toys are not only mentally stimulating and good for exercise, but they are a fun way to improve dental health and are a great way to bond with your dog too.
