Still have have a few items to check off your list for Fido, Figaro and friends? Well, look no further. We have curated for you this year’s best gifts for pets and pet lovers alike — our Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide, 2019…enjoy!
I know when I leave my house that my wonderful Fetch! Pet Care sitter, Amanda, will always take great care of my three dogs (and my fish and plants). However, I am a pet toy and gadget aficionado and happen to not only own but love my iFetch. It allows me the flexibility of giving my dogs their much needed exercise when I’m in a pinch for time — or simply if I don’t want to get my hands covered in lovely dog slobber. This creative device basically allows your dog to drop a ball inside and it then shoots it out through holes on either side of the device. In other words, your dog can play fetch with itself while you’re away!
2. Homemade treats for your four-legged friend (or for your friend’s furry friend)
Not only is this a fun and affordable way to show someone you love them — gifts made by hand and heart are pretty much a win-win all-around. Recently, Celebrity Baker and Chef Christina Tosi shared her exclusive homemade pumpkin dog biscuit recipe with us. Give it a try! And, if you’re a novice baker like me, this particular recipe happens to be super easy to make. Presentation is key so find a cute box, your favorite paper, a satin ribbon, and viola! You now have a beautiful, yet simple and thoughtful holiday gift to give this year.
3. The Pet Cube Camera
Our clients love when their Pet Care Providers send them updates while they’re away from home. Even though Fetch! Pet Care is known for our exceptional communication for peace of mind and transparency, it doesn’t hurt to have an added layer of visibility. Enter…Petcube! With the Petcube Camera, you can install it in your home at your cat pet’s height so that you can see or chat with your beloved fur baby directly on your smart device. Pretty cool, huh?
4. A teepee!
Regular pets can be boring although some brands have really stepped up the pet bed game. However, 2016 was the year of the teepee. Okay okay… it’s not a dog or cat essential, but come on — how cute is this? We love the Angie Pet Teepee from Joss & Main. Check it out here.
5. The chic and easy-to-clean Lotus Cat Tower
Cats love to hide and be high up where they can see their surroundings from above. They also need to scratch. There are regular cat towers and scratching posts, but then there’s The The Lotus Cat Tower. If you notice, this beautiful tower is mostly made of wood so that means less cat fur will stick to it making it an actual cat tower you can wipe down! Figaro can climb, scratch, nap — climb higher — climb lower. The sky’s the limit! Available in both Mahogany and Espresso, this piece will easily blend in with your personal home decor’s style.
6. A Lump of Coal
Sure, you could get your dog a bunch of classic tennis balls. He’ll love them no matter what. But if your pup has been particularly naughty this year, then have some fun and get him a lump of coal that’s also a ball. Sometimes gifts are more for your then they are for your pet, so this one’s sure to make you giggle some.
7. Cat Carrier Hoodie
Cats love being in your lap whether you like it or not. So, if you’re stuck carrying them around anyway, you may as well do it effortlessly with this crafty cat carrier hoodie. It’s special kangaroo-esque pocket is the ideal cuddle spot not only for your cat but for small breed dogs, too.
8. Custom-painted pet pillow
This is a great go-to for anyone on your list. Give it to your pet to snuggle with, or grab a few and use as decorative pillows for your home. Regardless, a custom-painted pet pillow seems downright pawesome!
9. Mustache Chew Toy
This may be more for you than the dog, but this tough rubber chew toy looks like an epic mustache when your dog decides he’d like to chew. Not to mention this makes for a hilarious Instagram-worthy post. If you do end up buying this for your dog, make sure to tag your Instagram photos with #MakeFetchHappen!
