Holiday gift ideas for the dog lover in your life

Published by Anne Bernard (November 24, 2017)

It’s that time of year again when we start wracking our brains for creative Holiday gift ideas for the special people in our lives.  If you have family members or friends who are dog lovers and you want to give them something useful, the following suggestions may be just what you’ve been looking for.

Help them…

…to travel better with their dog.

A Travall Guard and Divider are the perfect combination of vehicle-specific products for your friend to transport his or her pet, offering a special place at the rear of the vehicle where there won’t be driving distractions from an excited dog.  The Travall Guard also helps give passengers additional protection from loose items in the trunk. The Travall Divider gives 2 dogs a space of their own or separates a dog from other cargo in the trunk.

…to experience something new.

For a couple or for those who seem to already have everything they could possibly want, why not offer something quite different in the form of an activity? A fun, animal-related experience such as a dog sledding tour in Park City, UT may be just the ticket.

…to discover dog-friendly destinations.

Many people love to receive books as gifts. If you know a dog lover who also likes to travel around the US, then this book from National Geographic could be the ideal gift for them.

…to protect their pup from the elements.

A hooded raincoat for your pooch from Yap Stores, Ghirardelli Square, San Francisco, California can do just that. We particularly like that this is available in Travall company colors (other colors available).

…to keep their pet in shape.

A Fitbark helps to monitor a dog’s fitness levels so your friend can check whether his 4-legged buddy is getting enough exercise.

…to read their dog’s mind.

If you know someone who desperately wants to know how their dog thinks, a membership to Dognition may be the perfect choice.  According to Dognition, you will get to play fun, science-based games with your dog.  The more games played, the more you’ll find out how your dog’s mind works.
