Today I’m featuring four toys to get your dog for Christmas.
Wait! I hear you saying. Isn’t the name of this blog “Three Kids, Three Cats, and a Husband”?
Yes, as a matter of fact, it is. But I wasn’t born a cat owner. When I was growing up, my family had a beloved black cocker spaniel with a white patch under her chin. Her name was Ebony. I still remember us taking family walks around the block with her in the evening, playing tug of war with her with one of those rubber toys, and how excited she would get when we said, “Biscuit, Ebony! Biscuit!”
I just read about a survey saying that 63% of dog owners give their dog Christmas presents, and 40% of them hang stockings for them. (The numbers were a little lower for cat owners, which I didn’t find surprising.)
I found these three fun Christmas dog toys, plus a set of holiday dog collars, that I thought would make make good gifts for furry friends. My favorite is the group of the three squeaky plush toys. They look like fun, and something a dog would have fun with.
Interactive Dog Toy for Christmas
Small and medium sized dogs will love this red and white house with three squeaky reindeer who live inside it. They can have fun getting them out of the holes, then play “reindeer fetch” with you.
Note: This toy comes with the reindeer attached to the inside of the box, so be to sure to cut the ties so your furry friend doesn’t get frustrated.
Squeaky Christmas Toy for Dogs
This set includes three squeaky dog toys: a Santa, reindeer, and snowman. Even though the word “squeak” is used, they make more of a honking sound, like a duck. Perhaps one of the best things about these toys is that they are stuffing-free, so there is no mess. Another plus is that the “squeaker” is the size of the whole toy, as opposed to being frustratingly buried somewhere deep inside it.
If your dog loves noisy toys, this is definitely one to try.
Red Ball and Rope Dog Toy
This isn’t specifically a Christmas toy, but it’s red and white, so good enough. It works as both an indoor and outdoor toy as your dog play fetch, tug of war, or just enjoys swinging it around. The ball is about the size of a tennis, but is tough, heavy, and very durable.
Rubber Bone Dog Chew Toy
Here’s another red toy that’s simple, but popular. You can tuck a treat or peanut butter (both together is too messy) into it, and your dog may be chewing away on it for as long as an hour. Amazon reviewer Brandi_Knox said that these Mini Marrobones fit inside perfectly and keep dogs busy for a long time. This chew toy cleans up easily in the dishwasher.
