6 Great Holiday Gifts for Frisky Dogs

December 1, 2017

Is your canine buddy a bouncing ball of fur? Does your dog want to run and play for hours every day? If you have a furry bundle of energy on your hands, read on! An Omaha, NE vet lists some great holiday gifts for frisky dogs in this article.

Mechanical Ball Launcher

Is chasing tennis balls your pet’s favorite thing ever? Get your canine pal’s tail wagging by getting him a mechanical ball launcher. Just be sure to get one that is the right size for your pet. Dogs can hurt themselves using balls that are too big or too small for them.

Automated Laser Pointer

Another great toy option for playful pets is an automated laser pointer. Fido may have the time of his life trying to chase that pesky red dot! Just be sure to put it in a spot without a lot of breakable items.

Smart Toy

Did you know that there are now devices that let you play with your canine companion remotely? You can get your furry buddy a toy that uses and app and camera to let you control a laser pointer through your phone. (Note: this may sound like a great way to get through a boring meeting at work, but you’re probably safer to save it for your lunch break.)

Doggy Daycare

Doggy daycare can benefit your pet in many ways. If Fido hasn’t finished his training yet, he may be able to learn basic doggy obedience commands at school. Your four-legged buddy will also be able to spend the day running and playing with his buddies. By the time you pick him up, he’ll probably be tuckered out and ready to cuddle.

Subscription Box

You can now get subscription boxes just for your dog! Every month, your furry pal will get a box of goodies just for him. You also get to benefit, because watching your canine friend get excited over his mail will be super cute.

Doggy Play Zone

Do you have a yard for your four-legged friend to run around in? Make it more fun for him by incorporating a sandbox, kiddie pool, and lots of outdoor toys. You can also incorporate ramps and stairs. A doghouse would be another great addition.
