The Top Four Safest Gifts for Pets This Holiday Season

It’s that time of year again when we all start scrambling to find the perfect gifts for our loved ones. If you’re like most pet lovers, you want to make sure your pets have just as much fun as everyone else during the holiday season.

With so many new and exciting toys on the market, it can take time to choose the right ones. Don’t worry—we’ve done the research for you! Not all toys will be suitable for all pets, so we have compiled a list of four of the safest gift for pets this holiday season. 


Kong Toys 

These rubber toys are perfect for stuffing with treats or peanut butter and come in various shapes and sizes. Kongs are one of the safest gifts for pets because there is one for every dog! Kongs are great for keeping your dog busy when you are busy with other things. The rubber from a kong helps your dog to clean its teeth. Kongs provide the perfect source of entertainment for your pet. These are great for puppies to keep them stimulated as well. Kongs can also make the most sedentary pet active. Kongs will bounce around in unpredictable ways due to their unique shape – enticing even the most uninterested dogs!

You can also give a kong to a pup who deals with separation anxiety. Giving them a kong will act as a nice distraction to curb behavioural issues.


Puzzle Feeders

Puzzle feeders are an amazing toy to get your pet this holiday season. It is great for those pups who like to scarf down their food. Puzzle feeders encourage slow eating and mental stimulation. You can easily curb your pets’ boredom by placing their food and treats in their pizzle feeder. These toys activate your pets’ natural instincts, including searching and foraging for food. We take that away from them by simply putting their food in their bowls. You can change things up a little bit by proving your pet with a puzzle feeder to give them a challenge every so often!

Interactive Games 

Interactive games like hide-and-seek or fetch can keep pets entertained for hours. Who doesn’t love watching a happy dog or cat run around and play? Playing these interactive games with your pup can also help strengthen your bond with them too. Our pets love interacting with us, so do something fun together this holiday season! For your cat, feather toys will provide the perfect source of entertainment, as you can control the feather and have them run all over to try and catch it. For your pup, grab any toy from your local pet product shop that will encourage them to search for their food or treats.


Pet Beds 

As the cold weather is upon us, having a comfy cozy bed for your pet to sleep in will keep them happy this holiday season! Pet beds not only provide comfort and support, but they can also help regulate body temperature. There are plenty of different beds to choose from. When choosing, take into consideration how your pet likes to sleep and their age as well. There are beds made with extra comfortable materials for those who suffer from arthritis and need that extra support. Others come in a circular design, perfect for those who like to curl up in a ball and rest. The shag fur donut bed is a fan favourite of pets worldwide. 

The holidays are a time for giving, and what could be more fun than giving your pet the best toys and gifts on the market? We hope this list of the safest gifts for pets will help make your decision easier so you can focus on enjoying the holiday season with your loved ones.
