Gifts You Should Get Your Puppy This Christmas

Posted by New Puppy Pads on

Christmastime is coming, and for many people, that means the season of holiday shopping is in full-swing. While many people are preoccupied about what to get their friends, relatives, and spouses, dog owners have something much more important on their mind — what to give their adorable puppies on their first Christmas!

Fortunately, as puppy aficionados ourselves, we’ve got you covered at New Puppy Pads. We love dogs of all shapes and sizes, and we know that there’s nothing more satisfying than giving your pup a gift they will enjoy — even if the meaning of Christmas is lost on them.

Want some great gift ideas for your puppies or dogs this Christmas? Here are some presents you can consider for your canine companions.

Great Christmas Gifts for Puppies

A Personalized Food Bowl

Sure, your dog can’t read. But who can resist the cuteness of having a custom bowl made for your dog with their name printed just for them? For many people, a dog is more than just a pet — they’re family, and they deserve the best accommodations. What better way to make your dog feel at home than to have items that are personally customized just for them?

There are plenty of options online for customizing your dog’s food or water bowl (or both!) For example, searching “personalized dog bowl” on Etsy brings up countless results of merchants who sell custom bowls that are tailored specifically for your pup.

One fun part about customizing your dog’s bowl is capturing their personality with the font and styling. Is your dog more of a clumsy, rough and tumble type? Or is she a pretty pampered princess? Whether you’re accenting the bowl with messy paw marks or pristine lace decals, it’s a joy to give your dog a bowl that evokes their personality.

An Ugly Christmas Sweater

While a lot of dog owners catch flak for dressing their dog up in cute outfits, the reality is that there are, in fact, many dogs who enjoy being dressed up! If your dog meets that description, it’s hard to think of a more perfect gift than an ugly Christmas sweater.

The term “ugly Christmas sweater” has come to be associated with the traditional Christmas knit sweaters, which have largely fallen out of fashion, only to be revived again as a tongue-in-cheek seasonal item. It’s not uncommon these days to see “ugly Christmas sweater” parties, and it seems like more and more people are trying to outdo each other’s sweaters each year.

How perfect would it be, then, if you rolled into a Christmas party with your puppy who has a sweater of their own? You’d score even more points if you’re wearing a matching one yourself. It’s not hard finding a sweater for your dog — just search for ugly Christmas sweaters on Amazon to see the variety that awaits!

The Coziest Bed in the World

Another way to really set your puppy up is to buy them a dog bed that will last them for years to come. You spend all kinds of money investing in your own mattress — why not get your puppy something that’s equally as luxurious? A good puppy bed can be a treasured possession for your dog over many years.

So, how do you find the best puppy bed? Well, first of all, it’s good to find something that will last. Instead of buying a bed that they will grow out of in a year, consider finding a product that will accommodate their full size so they can stick with it for years to come. Many dogs form attachments to their beds, so it’s important to make it count!

One of the best ways to find a good dog bed is to peruse your local pet stores. Because beds need to be exceedingly comfortable, it’s a great idea to go get a feel of them yourself before you buy. Ask yourself — would you feel at home in this bed if you were a furry little four-legged pup? If the answer is yes, you can probably feel safe bringing it home.

PetChatz Pet Camera

Does your dog have a serious case of separation anxiety whenever you leave them at home? Do you have a serious case of separation anxiety when you leave your dog? If either of these things are true, you would both benefit from a two-way PetChatz camera!

This handy device allows you to keep tabs on your pup when you’re at home through a camera with which you can interact via smartphone. Using the app, you can make your face appear on the device back at home (typically hung on a wall), and the camera will also capture what’s happening in the room, so if your dog comes up to see you, you can interact with them!

The best part about this? You can actually feed your pup treats even if you’re hundreds of miles away! That’s right, you can stow dog treats in the device and trigger them to dispense with the push of a button on the mobile app. Want to reward your good little boy next time you’re away and make them feel less alone? Your dog will no doubt appreciate being able to video chat with you!

Puppy Pee Pads

One of the best gifts you can give your puppy is the gift of behavioral training — when properly trained, life can actually be easier for the dog in the long-run, and it certainly takes a big burden off your shoulders.

And with any new puppy, one of the most important things you need to teach them is controlling their urinary habits. It can be a nightmare if a dog is never properly potty-trained. You don’t want a house that smells like ammonia, or to be constantly replacing your furniture due to pee stains, right?

Puppy Pee Pads can help. Our special training pads come in two varieties — washable and disposable. With the former, you can always have a pee pad on hand which will help to train your dog to know when and where to pee, and you can wash it and reuse it — something that’s very useful for people who handle large quantities of dogs. If you only have one little pup, you may benefit from disposable puppy pads. You can get hundreds of pads in a single pack, ensuring that they will last a good long while!

By helping your dog to be potty trained, it’s a win-win situation in the long run. Do both you and your dog a favor, and order our puppy pads today! These, along with a few other gifts on this list, are sure to make your puppy’s first Christmas a memorable one indeed.
