Well the silly season is well and truly upon us, and if you’re anything like me, you had your Christmas shopping done, wrapped and under the sparkling tree in October… HA! If you’re really like me – and I’m pretty sure you are – then you’ve completely left everything to the last minute and are currently dashing around like a headless chicken (idiom only, we love animals around here!)
And while there is a heap to choose from; iPads, iPods, iPhones – you could do your Christmas shopping at Apple alone, there’s probably not too much on the market for the furry friend in your life – or so you thought. We’ve put together a list of must-have toys and gadgets that’ll have any pupperino’s tail wagging, and better yet? Most of these gifts you don’t even need to set your foot near a crowded car park!
Happiness is Dog Shaped book
Ugh, hello?! As if your pooch wouldn’t want a book featuring more than 100 of their four legged counterparts, who’s humans share tails of why their pupperinos bring them happiness. Bonus points if your pooch is one of our featured dogs!
The Gift of Giving
Let’s face it, sometimes we go overboard with toys for our pupperinos, so why not give your pooch the gift of giving with a donation to Dachshund IVDD Support Australia or Pets of the Homeless. That way your four legged friend will be helping other pups in need.
I love my dog, I really, truly do. But man, trying to sip a summer cocktail by the pool and continually throw the ball is exhausting. I mean, they. Never. Tire. Out. EVER! iFetch is the brilliantly brilliant device that plays fetch with your dog – it’s like the godsend of an iPad for a toddler but in dog land.
FuzzYard Collar and Leash
You know how the saying goes, new year, new you, new… everything?! Start the year off with a snazzy brand spanking new collar and leash from our friends at FuzzYard. With colours and sizes to suit everydoggy, your four legged friend will be the talk of the town.
PetHaus Denim Vest
Denim is back, baby! Keep the hot sun off your pupperinos back with a stylish denim vest from PetHaus. The pawsome designs will give humans a laugh, and keep your pooch looking sharp. If you don’t think the vest is best, then try out a denim bandana to ease your pooch into the hipness.
Happiness is Dog Shaped Toys
Nothing makes us more excited than dogs doing human things (have you seen a dog eat an ice cream?!) Well, we think our range of dog toys are pretty barking great; whether your pooch is a jet setter, a fast food fan, or your fishing buddy, our gift packs have them covered with the coolest toys ever.
Whatever you get them, we’re sure they’ll be impressed! And don’t forget to share photos of your festive pups with us using #happinessisdogshaped
