Since I was a kid, my mom would have a stocking for our childhood dog. I’m pretty sure she even keeps stockings for her barn cats, her rescue horse, her mule, and her pony. And whether or not they are aware there is a holiday coming, my dogs and cat certainly do! What’s not to notice and love? There’s a beautiful tree, there are holiday throws to snuggle on or under on the couch, and there certainly are Christmas stockings, that may or may not already hold my dogs’ super yummy treats! I love the holidays so much, and it’s that much more when you have new family members to love, or at least experience yet another magical holiday season with, and you want them to feel special! So that’s what I’m all about with this fun collection of gifts for pets!
Gifts For Pets and Pet Lovers:
1 – Simple Solution Extreme Pet Stain and Odor Remover:
This is CRUCIAL! Simple Solution is designed for the toughest odors and organic stains, and was created for busy pet parents (like me!) who are looking for a solution for ALL pet messes, like cleaning, diapers, and pads. This remover is three times stronger than their regular formula to eliminate tough dog and cat odors and stains. Here is some fun info: The professional strength formula! It’s a professional strength Pro-Bacteria and enzyme formula that breaks down and eliminates stains and odors. And also, it’s specifically for pet odors and organic stains. With Simple Solution Extreme Pet Stain and Odor Remover, you can safely and quickly remove dog and cat urine, feces, and vomit, on carpet, upholstery, bedding, fabric toys, clothing, and other water-safe surfaces in the home. I no longer fear a big pet mess with this product around!
2 – Soothing Oatmeal Dog Shampoo & Itch Relief Dog Shampoo from Natural Care+:
I wish I could tell you we don’t need dog shampoo a lot, but we totally do! Even Lucy, who is the cleanest and sweetest smelling dog ever, gets herself in quite a lot of messes. And Astro has dry, itchy, and irritated skin, so we needed a special formula for him! Athena, the half husky, is somewhat in the middle. She doesn’t have the long husky fur that Lucy has, but she still gets herself in some dirty AND itchy messes. Having both products is important for us in this house.
The Soothing Oatmeal Dog Shampoo is a staple in this house, with its special blend of oatmeal and aloe vera, which helps provide soothing relief for dry and irritated skin. Baking soda and natural deodorizers help eliminate tough pet odors, and the dogs smell so fresh and clean after their baths! Also, it has goat milk for moisture, and to protect your dog’s coat for a deep and long-lasting clean.
And the Itch Relief Dog Shampoo blends tea tree oil and aloe vera to help relieve dry, itchy, and irritated skin. Goat milk moisturizes and helps protect their pretty coats, and salicylic acid exfoliates their skin and helps ease irritations. With three dogs, things get out of whack sometimes, and Natural Care+ is definitely a brand we count on for this and more! Having natural products for our dog is important, and I can’t tell you how many times we need a dog shampoo around here. Lucy is clearly embarrassed by her part in this!

3 – Dog Toys from Multipet:
Well. These are FUN! Just ask Rider. He would love to steal them from Athena, who loves to steal them from Astro, who loves to steal them from Lucy, who will ultimately not let ANYONE steal her toys. She seriously will play with them, and then just sit “guarding” them. And no one else can have them. It’s the cutest. Multipet Brand has been around for over 25 years! You can keep your dog engaged, active, and excited during playtime, as these toys encourage movement (exercise and mental stimulation) and are made for dogs that like to toss, tug, cuddle, or play gently. As always, make sure to monitor your pets when playing with pet toys, and inspect the toys periodically for damage. Do not permit your pet to continue playing with a broken or damaged toy. Please discard when worn. No pet toy is indestructible. Intended for pet use only.
So, here’s what we have! We have the Eco Safari Animal – this is your dog’s newest and most “sustainable” toy. It’s an adorable squeak toy, that is also soft, and it squeaks while also helping save the planet. This is because it’s made with plush fabric and inner stuffing that is 100% recycled material. This environmentally friendly plush dog toy meets the Global Recycle Standard, and about 12 recycled water bottles are used to make the toy!
My dogs also have the Nobbly Wobbly rubber ball, which takes fetch to the next level. It’s colorful and exciting and is made of different colored interwoven rubber tubes. This design allows the ball to bounce at all different angles and gives your dog plenty of ways to grab it with their mouth. The ball encourages exercise and interaction, and is designed for dogs of all sizes. Make sure to check out Multipet toys at your local retailer, and you can find out more here.
4 – BearnolaBites and Grain Free Meaty Bites from Charlee Bear:
Yum to these, according to all three of my dogs! Bearnola Bites are natural treats crafted with real oats, honey, and vanilla right here in the USA. They are made without soy, corn, and artificial flavors or preservatives. And each crunchy cluster is bursting with irresistible aroma and taste. They have FUN flavors for dogs, like Blueberry Pie, Cranberry Cobbler, PB & Honey and Pumpkin Spice. I love granola, and it turns out that dogs do too! Plus they’re made with ingredients that pet parents would find in their own kitchen pantry, and are perfectly sized for training or for fun.
Then, there are Grain Free Meaty Bites, with only two wholesome ingredients – a protein and a fruit or vegetable. Plus, added probiotics. And they are freeze dried to lock in nutrition and flavor, and infused with superfoods. These yummy treats are raw, freeze-dried meat treats infused with real fruit or vegetables you can see, without any soy, grains, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. They come in six flavors, including Beef Liver & Apples, Beef Liver & Sweet Potatoes, Chicken & Blueberries, Chicken & Cranberries, Lamb & Blueberries and Salmon & Sweet Potatoes. Yay for these USA made dog treats! You can find out more here.
