Christmas Presents for Dogs

If your dogs are part of your family there is nothing more exciting than seeing them rip the paper off the presents you have bought them, or pull things out of their “doggy stockings.”

If money is no object Harrods, the famous Knightsbridge store, has a wonderful pet department where there is an amazing range of pet gifts and accessories for your four-legged friend. But be prepared to take out a mortgage to pay for most of them. It is possible to buy rugby shirts and other coats there for your pooch at prices you can afford and it is certainly worth visiting the store at Christmas, especially the pet department.

For those with a limited budget you can buy a wide variety of gifts online for under £10, as well as the more expensive items like dog beds.

To many people the family pet is as much a part of the family as their human owners and their presents are put under the tree like all the others. They also have their own canine stockings which are hung up and filled by Father Christmas. If you want to give your dog chocolate at Christmas buy some of the special dog chocolate items that are available at all good pet stores. Ordinary chocolate contains caffeine which is poisonous to dogs and can kill them. In the same way nuts are very bad for canines, so do not give these to your pets. They can have a small portion of your Christmas Turkey or goose as that will not cause them any harm.
