    1. A smart bone toy so your dog can stay stimulated and entertained even when you're not around. Simply connect this bad boy to your Bluetooth to manually control it. You can choose up to nine different ways for it to move or choose the automatic play for up to 60 minutes.

    Promising review: "My dog love this! I bring this out and he is instantly in love with this toy. No fear, just pure play! He likes to play around in the automatic mode. The toy in the last couple of days has proven to be one of the best things I have brought for my puppy. He plays for half-hour and then happily sleeps with it. He has forgotten about all other toys." —Simant

    2. A burrow dog bed because your pup deserves their own little space to feel comforted and safe. The hood on top provides a sense of security which may even relieve some of their anxiety. Honestly, I need one for me.

    Promising review: "When I put this down, he cozied right up and it hugged him perfectly. Perfect for him as he likes to move around, and spread in all different directions. Shipped fast and great quality." —Andie

    3. A pet fountain with multiple layers to give your pup options on where to lap up some water. Should they choose the top level? The bottom level? Who knows! What we do know is how much water is in there thanks to the transparent window to observe your pet's water consumption.

    Promising review: "My dogs seem to like this cool pet fountain that keeps the water fresh and in rotation, although one of my dogs was hesitant to use at first! It's just big enough for several days supply of water, but not too big that the water stays in for too long. Directions for setting it up were easy to understand and it was simple to put together. One thing the directions didn't state was what kind of water to use, which might be helpful for some users. My default for anything that needs a water supply (ie iron, steamer, etc), is distilled water so buildup doesn't occur if you have extremely hard water like myself. It did include three extra filters along with one already in the unit, which I assume would last 30 days, although I don't remember reading that anywhere in the directions. It does have a min/max water level, so it's easy to see when it needs to be refilled. I do get some water on the floor around the unit, not because it leaks, but because my dogs are slobs and drip water around it, so placing a rug under it would help preserve flooring if you have this on hardwood floors." —Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $29.30 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "I purchased for my yellow lab who sheds like crazy! Large fits him great. Less hair on the floors and furniture. I am very happy with my purchase." —Joel Henkel

    5. A lick pad so they can have something to do while you give them the premium spa treatment they expect at least once a week.

    The pad can stick on any shiny or polished surface, such as tile, granite, or glass!

    Promising review: "Our labradoodle needs a distraction during bath time and haircut/nail trim. We previously bought a different lick mat that we liked, but the suction cup didn’t work because it was too shallow. This mat has four deep suction cups on the corners with little tabs for easy lift off when you’re done! It stays up on the shower wall and keeps our pup entertained for his bath. The grooves are quite deep and have no variety so it’s easy to clean but if you’re looking for something a little different, just know that this isn’t that." —Cate

    Shipping info: Orders ship for a flat rate of $4.95 (free shipping on $50+). Orders typically arrive 1-3 days after shipping.

    Get it from Chewy for $10.95 (available in two styles).

    6. A box of dog-friendly macarons so your fur baby can feel as bougie as you strive to be. They are made of 100% human-grade ingredients like honey, oat flour, and strawberry yogurt filling. Basically, you can both be bougie together.

    Promising review: "I'm not a dog parent myself but my friend’s dog LOVED these macarons and my friend is obsessed with the packaging as well. Her dog needed a few minutes to eat the macaron but focused on it until she finished it, and then asked for more!! Highly recommend as the best dog treat gift that is out there. It's going to be my go-to gift for Christmas to all my friends with doggies!" —Amazon customer

    Get a box of six from Amazon for $23.99 (available in 10 flavors).

    7. A set of chew toys for the pup who just loves to play with rope. My favorite thing to do when they open these gifts is to dump them all out at once and watch them get so excited!

    Promising review: "Bought this packet for my Rottweiler puppy, he’s a big chewer and most of these toys held up for a period of time. The products are great. It’s been about a week and the toys are still intact, which is a huge success in our house, he destroys his toys in hours. We would definitely buy these again." —Lindsay P.

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get a set of 13 from Amazon for $22.95.

    8. A snuffle mat that looks like a patch of grass that'll encourage your dog to forage for their snacks. It's interactive and very stimulating!

    Promising review: "She eats her dinner out it each night and will spend at least an hour checking it over to make sure she didn't miss anything. I like that you can use the drawstring to make it smaller or bigger. It's a good mat to try out snuffle mats to see if your dog likes it or not, the price is great!" —M. Gonzales

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $16.59.

    9. A dog paw washer for their stinky, dirty paws you don't want stepping all over your freshly mopped floors. Okay, this may be more of a gift for you than them, but they'll probably love feeling so fresh and so clean.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Best. Thing. Ever. This product works like a charm. It gets the sand from between their pads, and is gentle enough that even my most stubborn pup tolerates it!" —Rachel

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three sizes and six colors).

    10. A four-step pet stair since you ~refuse~ *eye roll* to carry them onto every surface in the house, this will just have to do.

    Chewy

    Promising review: "I purchased this for my 5-month-old Shih Tzu puppy and she absolutely loves it. After having fallen off our bed, I wanted her to have a means to get on and off the bed. She was shown once how to climb it and she loves it. I sometimes find her on the bed because she just loves climbing it. However, we are working on going down the stairs...that is a little more challenging for a puppy but we are getting there. Best thing I ever did for her." —PeggySue

    Shipping info: Orders ship for a flat rate of $4.95 (free shipping on $50+). Orders typically arrive 1-3 days after shipping.

    Get it from Chewy for $27.99 (available in three colors).

    11. An interactive ball that talks and makes noises to keep your puppy busy and active. It says things like "I'm gonna get you" and "Come here puppy" which would sound ominous to anyone but Gizmo.

    Promising review: "My dogs loved it! My Rottweiler barked and growled and randomly goes up to it to try and make it talk. Then tried to fight it." —Mackenzie Roberts

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95+ (available in sizes S-L).

    12. A set of pet spa day supplies like dog shampoo and conditioner, a dog deodorizing spray, and a soy candle to neutralize bad odors without being too much for your pet. "Ahh, so relaxing. I can't wait to puke on the carpet later." —your dog, 100%.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "The smell to this is just wonderful! And this is probably the first 'perfume' per say, that my dog doesn't sneeze from or become irritated. It also helps with soothing and calming down my dog. So it actually does what it says it will. I love this so much and as soon as I run out I'm buying some more!!!" —Sheilyn Febles

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Promising review: "This puzzle took him a good hour and a half to figure out the first time and every time after that, he sits with this for about an hour. He’s really calm (which he’s normally not) and concentrated with it, methodically moving pieces. It’s easy to clean because the sliding tiles just pop right off." —Courtney Oldham

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $6.85+ (available in four levels and four styles).

    14. An automatic water fountain that allows your dog to constantly have fresh running water to drink out of. They've tried that sad, stagnant water bowl once. Never. Again.

    Promising review: "I do notice the dogs are drinking more water and it’s exactly why I purchased this item in the first place. Depending on how much water your pets drink determines how many times you’ll have to refill the tank. I typically refill the water tank once a day but on hotter days I make sure it’s always full." —Monae

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in two colors).

    15. A hands-free dog leash so your pup can feel the freedom of running at your speed without feeling the tug of your arm. Perfect for runners or people who like to juggle a bunch of things in their hands while walking their dogs. Time doesn't stop for anyone, ya know.

    Promising review: "I have a deaf, double merle Australian Shepherd rescue. I have been thinking about taking him jogging with me in the mornings or evenings, but I wasn't sure how to run while holding a leash. This waist leash is definitely the answer! Anytime we walk the dog he has a harness on, so it clipped right into the top ring of the harness. With this setup I never had him pulling on me once. He felt free to walk just ahead of me without being stuck walking on one side so as not to run me over/trip me with the leash." —Wildifreq

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in seven colors).

    16. A bow tie dog collar because... it's a bow tie dog collar. Do we need a reason? Bow. Tie. Dog. Collar.

    Promising review: "We purchased the buffalo plaid one for our family Christmas photo and even got a small for our friend's Boston terrier. This collar matches our buffalo plaid pajamas so well. They look so adorable and the collar is so durable. We could not be happier with this product. We will keep buying them in different patterns until we have them all." —Victoria

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four sizes and seven colors).

    17. A USB rechargeable LED collar to give you peace of mind at night when you're out walking and knowing you can always see where they are. Warning: They may want to join a rave and listen to EDM music.

    Promising review: "My sweet puppy loves this little LED collar. We walk a lot at night and it has become dangerous with how dark it is getting. It takes about an hour or so to charge and we get hours of use out of it before it needs to recharge. The charging is a basic Android charger. For the main lights there are fast blinking, slow blinking, and solid-colored modes. We used the solid on mode so it could act as a flashlight for our little girl." —Dido

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors).

    18. A set of dog treat molds because Princess deserves the best and who better to make the best treats than yourself? She'll be so excited every time you whip these babies out.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I made tiny little cakes for my dogs in six to seven minutes. It also came with a book of recipes which was nice. Also, I used a syringe to squirt the cake mixture into the molds. Works great! One full syringe filled up the mold!" —Amazon customer

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    19. A nail grinder kit to trim your pup's nails without the worry of cutting them too short, which could result in bleeding and future anxiety about nail trims. They'll let you know about it. They never forget. The grinder will safely grind their nails down to the desired length *and* is wireless for easy maneuvering around the puppo.

    The nail grinder has two speeds to choose from and comes with the charging station and extra drum heads so you're always using an effective grinder.

    Promising review: "Pleasantly surprised as I’m not sure what I was expecting. I’ve used Dremel tools for years for household projects and was picturing that loud power tool. This isn’t exactly quiet but it isn’t horrible. However, I was pleased with how well it sanded down the nails and how easy it was to shape them so there were no sharp edges or angles like you always get with clippers. Our one-year old boxer mix took two people to use this but that was just to keep him calm and to help hold the paw. He mainly just wanted to pull away but was in no real distress and didn’t actually fight. Instructions say three seconds per nail in a rotation to keep them from getting hot. I found 5 to 6 seconds worked for me to make progress and I would feel the nail after and they were still cool. You do need to stabilize longer nails so they don’t vibrate. I would say once a week is optimum so you stay ahead of growth. Also don’t be stingy with sanding drums but they aren’t expensive and do last through multiple sessions. Definitely recommend over clippers." —MortyTheDog

    Shipping info: Orders ship for a flat rate of $4.95 (free shipping on $50+). Orders typically arrive 1-3 days after shipping.

    Get it from Chewy for $29.82.

    20. A container of dog treats with real bone marrow and calcium to help them maintain strong teeth and bones. No one wants weak teeth when there are so many treats to be eating!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog, a Boston terrier, loves this treat. They are small enough that I can give her a couple, so I like to use them when training for tricks to reward her for doing something particularly hard. They are more exciting than training treats but can still be eaten quickly. This is a huge bin, a great price, and the container is airtight." —Mamma

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    21. A birthday gift set of toys for when it's your pup's birthday. Don't know their birthday? That's okay! Use the day you met them! They'll be none the wiser and just as excited for new toys.

    Promising review: "Our girl loved this entire gift box for her 10th birthday (Gotcha Day)! We were beyond happy with the quality of the goodies. She especially loves the cake toy. She has decided it's the perfect size for her own little headrest." —HoundResQer

    Promising review: "Having a dog that is a picky eater it is very difficult to get him something that he likes. In the past, I've made him a doggie peanut butter cake for his birthday but he did not even touch it. This time he took one lick and he was hooked! The instructions are very easy and simple to follow I would definitely purchase more!" —Carlos
