Christmas is a time for all the family and that includes our fuzzy friends right? There are so many ideas for dog Christmas presents around nowadays that they are really spoilt for choice. Here’s some of my favourite things to make the festive period one that’s full of good treats and fun times for your dog.
Dog Christmas Presents
When it comes to choosing a good Christmas present for a dog there’s a few options that I think are winners. Anything to do with food, playing or sleeping! There’s also the dog outfit as well, but who are we kidding, that’s for our benefit! Here’s some good ideas for presents and read on below for more ideas for food related gifts.
Christmas Turkey Large Plush Dog Toy[easyazon_image align=”none” height=”320″ identifier=”B0162W11H0″ locale=”UK” src=”http://outdoormutt.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/41vaiTrhzJL.jpg” tag=”outdoormutt-21″ width=”500″]
No Christmas is complete without a turkey! This dog toy is quite large, about 40cm long, and so is good if you have a large breed of dog that finds the smaller toys to be a bit useless. It has a squeaker inside it and is just a good bit of fun really for dogs who like fluffy toys![easyazon_link identifier=”B0162W11H0″ locale=”UK” tag=”outdoormutt-21″]See this item on Amazon here.[/easyazon_link]
Outward Hound Plush Snake[easyazon_image align=”none” height=”449″ identifier=”B003RQL77Y” locale=”UK” src=”http://outdoormutt.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/41IpU0ittLL.jpg” tag=”outdoormutt-21″ width=”500″]
My dogs love long toys like this one that they can throw around and chase after – it provides a LOT of fun for a good amount of time so I always like to get them new ones at Christmas. This is a good make, stuffingless and it’s apparently invincible so good for crazy chewers.[easyazon_link identifier=”B003RQL77Y” locale=”UK” tag=”outdoormutt-21″]Outward Hound Kyjen 32068 Invincibles Plush Snake Stuffingless Durable Dog Toys Squeaker Toy 6-Squeakers, Large, Orange Blue[/easyazon_link]

You can’t leave out your dog in the Christmas Jumper annual photo can you? I like this one as it comes in a variety of sizes so good for big as well as small dogs. It has the adorable Rudolph on the back and just looks ever so cute![easyazon_link identifier=”B015W3VVRK” locale=”UK” tag=”outdoormutt-21″]See this item on Amazon here.[/easyazon_link]
Christmas Dog food and treats
We often overindulge, have too many sweets around and just way too much food at Christmas. It’s easy to think that as a one off we can pass on a few tidbits to our dogs, but it’s especially important to make sure they don’t get hold of chocolate or other bad food. If your dog has intolerances or isn’t used to rich food it’s even more of a good idea to keep an eye on their intake – you don’t want to be dealing with an upset tummy on Christmas day.
There are some good options if you want to give your dogs a special treat but don’t want to upset them. The first I am going to suggest is this tinned food by Lily’s Kitchen, one of my favourite dog food makes.
Lily’s Kitchen Dog Food – Christmas Dinner[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”500″ identifier=”B00Q2U80HM” locale=”UK” src=”http://outdoormutt.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/51gGYf0OirL.jpg” tag=”outdoormutt-21″ width=”325″]
What I like most about this make is that they make real food which is high quality and I believe our dogs definitely deserve that on Christmas day, and every day! This dog food is called Three Bird Feast and contains turkey, goose and duck as part of the ingredients as well as those other staples, parsnips and cranberries! It would make a really nice special treat that they can have at any time of the year but especially Christmas!

Lily’s Kitchen Dog Biscuits[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”500″ identifier=”B01L91M1P0″ locale=”UK” src=”http://outdoormutt.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/51CYfkoHiGL.jpg” tag=”outdoormutt-21″ width=”500″]
Another from Lily’s Kitchen is these Fabulously Festive Biscuits for Dogs. Having some treats on hand that are specifically for your dog when the chocolates and biscuits are being handed out is a good idea so that it’s not tempting to just give them something that is bad for them. I love these biscuits as again they don’t have any additives or preservatives and are in a traditionally turkey and cranberry flavour. They come in a pack of 3 and would also be a great gift for someone you know with dogs themselves.

Good Boy Selection box[easyazon_image align=”right” height=”145″ identifier=”B002TVFHOM” locale=”UK” src=”http://outdoormutt.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/51HuxYxoUL.SL160.jpg” tag=”outdoormutt-21″ width=”160″]
Good Boy make a lot of treats that you can get for your dog, from chocolate orange pieces, to mince pies, to this selection box. It’s a slightly cheaper option than the Lily’s Kitchen treats so if price is a concern then these would be a good option. In this selection box you get choc drops, turkey and cranberry bones, yuletide yummies, beef flavour biscuit bones, munchy sticks and a larger Hohoho boone.
