The season of giving is almost upon us once more. It’s time to write the present list and think long and hard about what to buy for your loved ones. You ponder awhile to think of new and exciting gifts to give this year.

Search online to find something different from the standard retail offerings. Unique gifts from cuckooland.com and other outlets, hit the bullseye for originality.

So that’s your family members’ gifts taken care of. But there is another member of your household you need to buy for as well. Your trusted and loyal companion deserves a Thanksgiving gift too. So how will you reward your dog this season?


Food Treats

Irrespective of breed, what dog doesn’t like foodie treats? During the festive season, pet food producers get more inventive year on year. With lots of companies vying for your dog’s attention, pick a quirky gift for them to enjoy. Snacks are shaped in all manner of sizes and designs to cater for animals large and small. Eschew the usual bone this season for something inventive and appetizing. Double up tasty goodies with chew sticks to help maintain your dog’s teeth throughout the festivities.

Winter Warmers

As the chill nights begin to creep in, keep your dog toasty warm this season. Buy a luxurious dog blanket and let them curl up in their dog basket in comfort. Treat them to a new rug for the car so their next journey is a clean and cosy one.

Taking your dog out for walks during the cold months isn’t pleasant for either of you. Walking in the pouring rain, blowing winds, ice and snow, is a challenge in the wintertime. As you wrap up warm in overcoat and gloves, your poor pooch has to run to keep warm! This season, why not buy your dog a coat to keep them warm and dry?

New Home

If your dog spends much of their time outdoors, consider buying a new kennel. A spacious kennel provides an additional space on your property that they can claim as their own. When it rains, they can seek cover quickly rather than returning to the house with muddy paws! Even if your dog prefers the warmth of the hearth, the kennel provides a fun play space in the summertime.

Toys

Toys are a staple for most pets. Interactive and fun, toys keep your dog amused for hours. Educational toys are useful for training, so if you have a puppy consider which toys to buy. If your dog is left alone during the day, toys provide a welcome distraction. Noisy toys are helpful for addressing separation anxiety. When the house is eerily quiet, your dog is treated to the familiar sounds of their squeaky toy. However, be mindful of your neighbors as a noisy toy can be irritating to humans! Soft toys act as a cosy comforter that your dog may also appreciate during moments of anxiety.


No one knows your dog better than you. So take the lead this Thanksgiving and provide a stocking full of doggie treats they’ll love.
