Whether you are looking for a Christmas present for your dog or just got a new dog and want to know what you should get them, take a look at this list of items I recommend.
For Every dog
Balance Harness by Blue-9
This is my favorite harness. I use this with my personal dogs bigger than 10lbs. It is a Y-harness which doesn’t impede the dogs body movement. It is very adjustable so it fits all different body shapes. There is a clip at the neck loop for my dogs who are nervous having to put their head inside something. There is also a front clip which you can use for strong pullers or just large powerful dogs for your saftey.
Harness for tiny dogs
My very small dogs don’t fit into the balance harness and I have a stack of extra harenss I tried and this is the only one I have bought again. It is a Y harness and is adjustable. there is a clip at the neck which I love since my one dog doesn’t like things slipped over his head. It also comes in so many colors.
When possible I like to give my dog explore and have more room than a 6ft leash allows. A long line is awesome for that since it allows your dog to roam further while you still have a saftey teether. It is great to practice recalls and play fetch before your dog is reliable off leash.

West Paw Toopl
This is my favorite toy for giving my dog an activity to do. You can fill up the toopl with different snacks, like peanut butter, or their dinner and freeze it to keep your dog entertained. You can pull it out of the freezer when you need your dog busy for a while. It works similar to a kong but is easier to clean.
This is a great item to give your dog as a calming activty. You can put peanut butter, wet dog food, or other spreadable food on this to keep them occupied for a little bit. You can also freeze it, with food on it to last longer.
Bob-A-Lot Food Toy
This is a really fun way to give your dog food or treats. You can put food in the top area and then your dog has to push the toy around to get it to drop the food. It is a really fun way to get your dog some of their food while they play a game.
Food dispensing balls
This is a another fun way to feed your dog. This holds more food than the bob-a-lot if you want to put their full meal in one toy.
This is a fun toy that holds up to tough chewiers. It is a bit big so I keep this toy outside and my dog love to chase it and run around with it. I can easily kick it or use the handle to throw it for them.
This is a fun toy to play fetch and tug with. They are pretty durable and floats in water so you can play fetch in the water.
Wild Knots Bear Kong Toy
If you want a stuffed toy which is a little more durable and doesn’t have a lot of stuffing here is the toy. Instead of stuffing there are rope toys running through the bear so if your dog does rip it open you get another toy.
This fun toy allows your dog to have fun removing the squirrels from the tree. They are able to pull the toy apart with it being ruined.
Beef Cheek Rolls
These are one of my favorite chews. They might look a little like rawhide but they aren’t. They are rawhide alternative that last longer.
These are a good chew. They last a shorter time than a beef cheek roll but are still healthier than rawhide.
