With Christmas fast approaching, now is the time to get any last minute shopping out of the way. You’ve no doubt bought presents for friends, family and colleagues, but what about your much loved dog? They unconditionally love you all through the year, so making them feel extra special this Christmas is a great way to show your appreciation.

We recently tried a treat dispensing dog camera called Furbo, which turned out to be a lot of fun for us and Poppy, our Lhasa Apso dog. The unit has a 1080p camera which can be left on whilst you are out of the house, to monitor the activities of your dog. It pairs up with a dedicated phone app, so as long as the unit is connected to WiFi, you can view the live feed when you’re out and about. The really special part is that you can throw treats to your dog, remotely from within the app and record the whole thing. It’s a fairly weighty price but it’s a premium product and if you’ve got a relative who has an eye for gadgets and gizmos then we’re positive they’ll love it! You can read our full and extensive Furbo review here.

This porcelain mug from Not on the high street is a cute gift idea and would be a great stocking filler for any devoted dog dads out there. We like this as you can personalise the mug to make the character look like dad and his dog. You can also choose from a number of popular breeds to ensure greater accuracy and personalisation. It’s a lovely and rather unique gift which arrives hand painted and well packaged.
This cute little doggo warmie can be bought on Amazon and is around 25cm high. It’s the perfect gift for any dog lover who likes to get cosy on a cold winter’s night. We’ve got one of these and they’re really easy to use, you just pop them in the microwave for 90 seconds and the beads inside heat up to a comfortable temperature. It’s scented mildly with lavender which gives it a lovely smell right out of the microwave.
This product is a great bespoke gift for the ones you love who have dogs in their life. The book is filled with relatable messages that dog owners will know all too well, and you can even add in your own messages to the book. There are a number of customisable options that you can choose from, as well as different options for the finish. What’s more, £5 from every book goes to Battersea Dogs & Cat Home, so it’s going to a great cause.
This book by Nigel Reed, a dog behaviourist, explains how you can effectively train your dog to be well behaved. It’s ideal for anybody thinking of getting their first dog or a new puppy. We couldn’t recommend this book enough. It gives great tips and real solutions to common issues that many dog owners will face. The tone and style of the book makes for easy following and you will quickly uncover the secrets of dog behaviour and how to succeed at training.

This one is for the dogs rather than the owners! It’s Christmas though, so let’s not leave out the stars of the show. Fetch is the pet arm of the online supermarket Ocado, so you’ll have to get your delivery slots in. This box is a great gift option for dogs over the festive period. It has 7 products. That includes a monkey toy, reindeer antlers for those all important instagram photos, some pet head spray and a selection of tasty treats. Your dog will probably love everything apart from the antlers!
Who doesn’t love a cute sausage dog? We all know somebody who would love one of these cushions. It has a fun modern design and would compliment any bed or sofa with its subtle colour scheme. It has a reversible design (seen in the images), with blue and white against multicolours. The filled cushion, which is 43cm, is a great accessory and an ideal gift for a dog lover.
