I enjoy shopping for Wynston much more than shopping for humans. Do you share my sentiment? I have a stocking for Wynston that I love filling with goodies, and I also wrap presents for him. As a part of our 12 Days of Holiday Planning for Pet Parents series, I come to you with a post about some simple stocking stuffers for dogs! In a separate post I will give you other gift ideas for your dogs and cats that don’t necessarily fit in a stocking.
Stocking Stuffers for Dogs
Last year I traveled with Wynston for the holidays, so I just brought his filled stocking along because it was easier. This year we’ll probably open his stocking on Christmas Eve and his presents on Christmas day. I just love surprising him! Without further adieu, here are my favorite stocking stuffers for dogs.
Bully Sticks: I like these all natural, grass-fed premium Nature Gnaws bullies!
Dentastix: My favorite dental chews, which I swear by, are Dentastix. The vet just told me that Wynston has perfect teeth and he’s 7 years old! I’ve been giving him a Dentastix every day for about 6 years. I also recommend Greenies and Whimzees.
Crinkle & Squeaky Toys: Wynston’s favorite toys are the crinkle kind! Amazon has some good choices, but I typically pick up his crinkle toys at PetSmart! One of Wyn’s favorite toys is his “crinkle cow.”
New Ball: If your dog is a ball fiend, fetch them a new one this year!. They fit wonderfully inside a stocking.
Special Canned Food: Allow your dog to indulge in a special Christmas treat this year. Put a delicious can or two of food in their stocking. Mix it with their dinner or let them enjoy it as a treat.
New Collar: Dogs won’t be as excited about new collars as we will be, but they are a cute stocking stuffer! I have a terrible time finding small enough collars for Wynston, but I recently found the Etsy store, A Joyful Bird, which offers a 3/8″ width option!
Bag of Treats: Your pup is sure to appreciate the fact that bags of treats fit easily into a stocking. You’re welcome, puppers 😉
