1. GPS Pet Tracker

The #1 pet gift of the year is the Whistle 3 GPS Pet Tracker & Activity Tracker

Why is this gift so amazing?! When you  attach it to your pet’s collar, you can immediately locate exactly where your pet is and track their daily activity on your phone, no matter where you are.

Most of us do some sort of traveling from time to time. Whether your pet is coming with you or they're staying behind with a sitter, you can have peace of mind knowing if your pet is  lost, you’ll be able to track them nationwide on the AT&T cellular network.  

It also helps maintain your pet’s health by being able to see what their daily activity looks like. You can even compare your pet to other pets who are similar in age and breed. 

2. Give Your Dog a Celebration Cake!

Who doesn't love cake? Cakes from The Dog Bakery are made with only dog-safe wholesome ingredients, and they're fresh baked for every order. The best part? You can customize every part of the cake! The shape, the color, even the message. Order your dog a cake!

3. Furbo

How would you love to watch your dog, talk to them and even toss them treats when you’re not home?! The Furbo Dog Camera & Treat Tosser does just that.  This camera even has real time barking alerts, so you get notified to check in on them.

The camera quality is best in class: a super clear 1080p full HD, 4x zoom and 360 degree angle with night vision. This is the perfect gift for the tech junky.


4. Sniff Diggy Nose Work Mat

This iHeartDogs® Sniff Diggy Nose Work Mat is a fun way to engage and stimulate your dog’s senses while rewarding him/her with treats.  It  features strips of fabric that mimic long grass in between which you can hide treats. Dogs love using their noses to find covered up treasure, and they don’t even realize they’re exercising their brains.  So when your pup is preoccupied or in another room, stuff treats into the mat then let your dog have at it as they sniff the mat to find their treats.  

Doing this nose work with your dog can help build their focus and enhance general obedience training. It's also great for senior dogs to keep them mentally alert.  Anytime your dog is rewarded with treats.  It’s a win-win for everyone!


5. iFetch

The iFetch is an interactive dog toy that automatically launches balls for an ongoing game of fetch!  This toy is perfect for the multitasking owner, you can sip a cup of coffee in the morning or get ready for dinner while your pupper plays fetch at the same time!  This helps your pup get all the mental and physical exercise even when you have a hectic schedule. Available for both mini and regular size tennis balls. 


6. Nerf Dog Ball Blaster

Love the connection you have with your dog while playing fetch but hate the slobbery ball? This high-powered NERF DOG ball blaster launches your dog's favorite tennis ball up to 50ft in the air with ease!

When your dog brings it back, place the barrel on the tennis ball and pick it up hands-free. The blaster is safe for your hands with no exposed moving parts and is especially helpful for those who don’t have a good throwing arm, for kids, or those who just want to take their regular game of fetch up to the next level!  


7. Happy Dog Pet Water Fountain

Does your dog love playing with water or can never get enough water to drink? With this recommended gift, your dog will be set with the Happy Dog Pet Water Fountain by TrioGato!

This dog-activated water fountain will enable your pup to have an unlimited supply of fresh water at the tips of their paws.  Set up is easy, no batteries, electrical outlets or bowls to clean! Not only does it provide water, but it offers bundles of fun in what doubles as an action filled dog water hose toy.

10. CBD Oil

CBD for dogs

Savvy pet parents are turning to CBD for dogs to help a plethora of pet conditions like


✔️Chronic Pain & Inflammation

✔️Allergies / Itchy Skin

✔️Promoting a healthy appetite

I like CBD oil from RelieveVet. It's human grade, has been tested and cleared from heavy metals, harmful bacteria, yeast mold and other toxins.  It contains no THC, so your pet in no way gets high. They just reap the benefits!


11. Peace of Mind!

One of the best gifts you can give your pet is ensuring their microchip is registered at  This free service gives your best friend a much better chance  of  finding their way home if they are ever lost.  

First, get your pet microchipped if they aren’t already! It’s the size of a grain of rice that’s implanted beneath their skin between the shoulder blades. Once that’s done, go to and register ASAP! Did we mention the registry is FREE?! Register your dog here.
