4. Eco-Friendly Squeaker Dog Toy
Is there such thing as “too many toys” for our pups? We think not!
The Foggy Dog’s handcrafted squeaky dog toy is guaranteed to be a wag-worthy gift.
Make playtime even more of a blast with a heavy-duty squeaker that just won’t stop squeaking even if it becomes punctured. Since this is a plush toy, it is not indestructible. Although, it is incredibly durable.
This modish toy is made with the same long-lasting material as the company’s dog beds and stuffed with eco-friendly fiber filling from recycled plastic bottles.
A special bonus: Every order from The Foggy Dog helps a shelter dog in need.
Color options include Sand Beige, Toasted Brown and French Country Blue.
5. Bye, Bye Dog Breath Dental Kit
As the saying goes, “Health is the greatest gift.” Chances are your dog is going to be getting lots of treats for being a good pup. So, why not also gift him with this veterinarian-formulated dental kit?
Our Bye, Bye Dog Breath Dental Kit keeps your dog’s mouth so fresh and so clean — all without a toothbrush! The kit includes dental powder and dental sticks that eliminate stress and guilt for you, and plaque and stinky breath for your dog.
The dental line is made with natural ingredients including: cranberry, parsley, cinnamon, spirulina, champignon mushroom and yucca. All contain health benefits to finally say, “bye bye” to dog breath!
6. Organic Shea Butter and Beeswax Paw Balm
Believe it or not, but we’re not the only ones who suffer from winter skin.
Our dog’s paws, much like our hands, can become dry and cracked when exposed to cold weather or after a long day of fun outdoors. Obviously, this can be a real pain for our furry friend.
The solution? This 100% organic paw balm by Scottish brand, Dug and Bitch.
The balm contains shea butter, beeswax, olive fruit oil, sweet almond oil, and calendula oil. Each ingredient soothes, stimulates, renews and revives your dog’s paw pads. Simply massage the balm into your pooch’s paw pads and elbow joints, and wait for it to absorb and dry.
