Christmas Gift Guide for Dogs
Our fur-babies give us lots of fun and unconditional love throughout the year so it’s only right that we make sure they are remembered at Christmas too. This is our Christmas Gift Guide for Dogs with our pick of treats, toys and gadgets.
PitPat Dog Activity Monitor
Just like you would wear an activity tracker yourself, the PitPat is worn on the dog’s collar or harness to monitor their daily activity and exercise levels to ensure that your dog is in the best health possible. It works with the PitPat app which is free to download to your phone. Through the app, you can see if your dog’s food needs to be adjusted up or down in line with the amount of exercise they are getting and any fluctuations in weight. It has been designed with Vets and is made in the UK, it’s also fully waterproof so it’s fine for dogs to wear when swimming and diving (even in the sea).
Personalised Pet Treat Ceramic Jar
The beautiful Personalised Pet Treat Ceramic Jar from Proper Goose is perfect for storing your furry friend’s special treats. You can have the jar personalised with your pet’s name so there can be no mistaking exactly whose treats they are.
The Ceramic Jar has a lovely neutral colour and design which will fit into most kitchen designs. It is made from Bone China and has a wooden lid that fits snugly into the jar making it airtight to ensure treats always taste their best.
Puppy Toys from Nylabone
Everyone knows how much puppies love to chew, so if you want to make sure they aren’t chewing your best furniture, your favourite shoes or the kids’ toys, you’d better find them something which will hold their attention a little longer.
Even before Dobby arrived I had been looking into puppy toys and one name which kept cropping up with rave reviews was the Nylabone Starter Kit. Their safe, durable chews are designed with dogs in mind. The starter kit includes 3 bones; a soft plastic Puppy Chew Bone for teething puppies before they get any permanent teeth, a Power Chew chicken-flavoured bone for puppies starting to get their permanent teeth, and a Healthy Edibles chew treat recommended for puppies 6 months and older.
Nylabone Turkey/Sweet Potato Snacks
Made with natural ingredients and traditional WILD flavours, Nylabone Snacks will occupy and satisfy them. Limited ingredients with no nasties. No artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. Low in fat and no added salt or sugar. Authentic wild bone shape to encourage chewing to help prevent the build-up of tartar. Nylabone Puppy Snacks are for puppies 3 months of age or older and up to 7kg.
Nylabone Puppy Teething Keys
Without a doubt the Nylabone Puppy Teething Keys are Dobby’s favourite chew toy, he carries them with him everywhere.
- Helps clean teeth – controls plaque & tartar
- The Puppy Teething Keys from Nylabone are the perfect chew toy for your teething pup, it is specially formulated to help the growth and development of young teeth and jaws.
- Made from durable Nylon, the Nylabone Puppy Teething Keys discourage destructive chewing and promotes appropriate, healthy chewing.
- As your pup chews, the surface of the Nylabone becomes rougher, creating bristles, which help clean teeth and control plaque and tartar build-up.
- As you can see, this is a firm favourite for Dobby.

Mikki Puppy Grooming
When your puppy looks as cute as Dobby you’ll want to keep him looking his best at all times. The Mikki Puppy Dog Grooming Kit is the perfect gift set for Christmas. It is designed to help your puppy become familiar with being groomed and to make this an enjoyable event for both of you.
The slicker brush helps remove moulting hair, whilst the comb helps tackle any stubborn knots and tangles. The flexible head on the slicker brush gives a more gentle brushing experience for you and your pet.
Holding your puppy firmly but gently, use the brush, then the comb, and repeat until the comb glides through the coat. Finally, finish with the flea comb as part of a flea control programme.
The Mikki Puppy Shampoo is a unique and gentle formulation designed to be ultra-kind to the skin. The essential ingredients leave the coat feeling healthy and refreshed whilst keeping the coat in top condition. Not to be used on puppies under 8 weeks.

Chuckit Ultra Ball (Launcher Compatible)
The Chuckit Ultra dog toy ball is the ultimate fetch ball, designed to bounce higher, float better, last longer, and stand out from the rest. Made from natural, high-bounce rubber, the Ultra Ball encourages dogs to leap and jump for more stimulating games of fetch. Featuring an extra-thick rubber core, these dogs fetch toys are durable for long-term use, yet lightweight and buoyant as water toys for dogs. Chuckit, Ultra Balls are strong dog toys that hold up to dirt and slobber and are easy to wipe clean.
