The 4 gifts for pets blog hop & Gaveaway feature

The 4 Gifts for Pets Giveaway Hop is sponsored by CleverPet. Two of my other 4 gifts below were also sponsored and contain affiliate links. The opinions and ideas in this post are my own and are uninfluenced by any other person or business. The individual sponsors are responsible for their giveaway prizes including shipping. The Giveaway is open to residents of US and Canada (Ex Quebec) where legal. Canadian winner may need to pay duty on the CleverPet Hub.

I started fostering Kilo the Pug 3 years ago. He is my baby and probably a little bit spoilt (my husband and kids are laughing at the understatement). We celebrate Christmas and I enjoy giving him gifts, but I do not want to waste time and money buying gifts he does not need this year. When Jodi from Kohl’s Notes told me about the idea of picking only “4 Gifts for Pets” adapted from the similar concept for kids, it really appealed to me. You choose something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read (or in the case of Kilo who can not read much, something to Eat). It made me really think about what Kilo wants and needs and what I can afford.

Plus I loved the idea of joining with Kohl’s Notes and a group of other awesome bloggers to share the 4 Gifts concept, some great gift ideas and some great prizes.

What 4 Fabulous Gifts Did I Choose For Kilo?

Check out my four fabulous gift choices for Kilo the Pug this Christmas

It was hard to narrow down, especially the Want and Eat. Of course Kilo is a Pug, so for him Eating and Playing are his priorities in life. He always wants and needs treats, chews and new toys and games.

WANT: The CleverPet Hub.

I really want to try this electronic dog puzzle. It’s like a game consul for dogs with different levels. It looks great fun and great stimulation and it gives treats. The Kohl’s Notes crew give it a big paws up. I know Kilo would love it so it is top of the list. You can see a video here.
CleverPet Hub – Exercise Your Pet’s Mind + Body

NEED: The Furbo

I received one to try for free and love it. It not only lets me see and talk to Kilo while I am travelling, but I can throw him treats so he loves it too – see full review here. Every dog needs one of these. You can buy one through my link at a discount:


WEAR: New Harness

Kilo is hard to buy for because of his shape.  He pulls on walks and wriggles out of some harnesses. He had a red Buddy Belt which I liked but it only lasted 18 months and was rather expensive. I just bought this Kurgo one which fits well at a charity auction for the Toronto Humane Society – WIN WIN.  I may also try the Sleepy Pod safety-tested ones. You can buy a Kurgo one through my link today:

EAT: Bullwrinkles Bully Sticks

A very happy Kilo the Pug with his Bullwrinkles Bully Stick

These delicious healthy chews are produced locally near Toronto and we can never have too many LOL.  I have worked with the company on our Rescues Rock project, at various events and on giveaways. We often receive Bullwrinkles and Treats from them for free. Kilo absolutely LOVES them and I love the benefits and the company.

You can see other gifts he might like in our full Gift Guide for Dogs.
