Check out our Christmas Gift Guide for Dog Lovers and get inspired. You can buy or even DIY.

Well it is full on Christmas shopping time now in our house. I find it rather stressful and am always looking for inspiration so I have put together my annual Holiday Gift Guide for Dog Lovers. You can win some of these gifts in giveaways below.

A few of these gifts are sponsored as I received them for free to try or give away and this post includes affiliate links but I have only included things I have or would like and that I think might be great for Dog Lovers. Buying through my links does not cost you extra.

Check out my four gift choices for Kilo the Pug

I like buying and receiving gifts for Kilo the Pug. Kilo basically likes Treats, Food, and Toys. I narrowed down to 4 Gifts for Kilo in the Christmas 4 Gifts Blog Hop and Giveaway (Giveaway now closed).

You can see Kilo’s full Holiday Gift Guide HERE.

Close behind treats and food on our list has to be a Furbo.  I travel a lot and can see and talk to Kilo when I am travelling and toss him treats. We were given one last year and you can see our full review HERE. He loves the treats and contact and it makes me feel great! I have it aimed at his fave sofa in our front living room where he sits and snoozes most of the day between walks, play and shouting at the mailman. I can calm him down or distract him if he is barking, even thousands of miles away. I always check Furbo is connected and full of treats before I leave on a trip.

Buy one through my affiliate link here:

This electronic game or puzzle looks so fun and it even gives treats. I think Kilo would love it and I like to keep him mentally and physically stimulated.

You can enter to win one in another Giveaway next week.

You can buy one through my affiliate link below:


If you want to make bath time easier for dogs and dog owners, this could be the best gift ever. Check out our video below and please subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more videos for Dog Lovers.

Vacuum, Hair and Stain Removers

My husband would say a hair remover or vaccuum would be even more useful than the BarkBath with all Kilo’s black hair everywhere on our white sofas. In fact we even looked at some new ones with Kilo the Pug at Canadian Tire over the weekend.

Car Seat Cover

4Knines Luxury Car Seat Cover

I was lucky enough to recently win a 4Knines Car Seat Cover  – what an amazing gift. My husband is happy as he likes to keep his newish car spotless. Our trips with Kilo in his car to the monthly Pug Grumble and to the Ravine will now be much cleaner and better for him and less stressful for me.

Clothing and Accessories

Bocker Christmas Socks for Charity

Socks – I love gifts that give back and I love Bocker the Labradoodle. I was lucky enough to buy pairs of Bocker Christmas Socks for my daughters and I, plus an extra pair to give away.

ENTER by December 16th at the bottom of the page if you would like to WIN a pair of Bocker socks. US and Canada (ex Quebec) where legal.

Adorable flanel Puppy PJs

Check out these divine PJs I had to have and I got a onesie for my daughter. So cute from Marshall’s.

Sweaters – what is Christmas without Ugly sweaters and who doesn’t want a Bah Humpug or any Pug one really? I am wearing mine at the top of the page with Kilo. He has some cute ones too.

T-Shirts– We love personalizing gifts! Talent Hounds has made custom t-shirts, coffee mugs and tote bags. These are all available from a variety of sources including Vistaprint.

Calendars and Cards that give back

Every year, we get calendars from Bocker Labradoodle, the St John Ambulance Therapy Dogs  and Igor Pug that donate to charity. We also buy cards from the Ontario SPCA.

You can buy your Bocker Calendar HERE for a limited time.

We will also be giving away one Bocker Calendar and one St John Ambulance Therapy Dog Calendar below too.

Mugs, Cups, Water Bottles

I found this pug drink bottle at a local gift store as well as some cute mugs. I had to have it. I got a unicorn one for Ana who works with me.

Bottle Stopper

How cute is this little guy, plus I like the wine that he is sitting on.

Doggy Boot Scrapers

Dachshund boot scraper

With winter comes snow and mud. I was given a fabulous boot or shoe scraper that sits by the front door so I looked around and found one on Amazon you can buy here through my link.

Plush, 3D Tribute Models or Pet Rescue Rocks.

A customized plush or miniature in the image of a dog can make a wonderful gift. I would love a plush of Kilo from Cuddle Clones or another supplier. It is really hard to find plushes of black pugs. I also love my Pet Rescue Rocks modelled on Kilo the Pug. I gave a Fishstick one to his parents too. We will be selling kits by next Christmas.

Make Your Own DIY Gifts

Besides the Pet Rocks and Bow Ties mentioned above, Check out our tips on making  your own Treat Jars and Cookies. Kilo gave his sweetheart Ms. Charmin a beautiful treat jar with her favorite liver treats and christmas cookies.

Watch our straight forward video on how to make a personalised treat jar for your dog

Personalized Paintings, Portraits, Cards, Photo Sessions


I think a photo session with a local pet photographer, or a portrait by someone like our talented friend Sadie who painted the one above of Kilo which I LOVE, can all make wonderful gifts.

Check out the photos we took at Canadian Pet Expo recently.

iHeartDogs’ Limited Edition Memorial Bracelet


A beautiful, unique and symbolic bracelet that memorializes the relationship between a mom and a dog who has passed on. Each piece features the following elements, all designed to honor the memory of her beloved pup:

  •  1 Paw Bead: Symbolizes the paw prints they left on your heart
  • 1 Heart Bead: Symbolizes the piece of your heart they took with them
  • 22 White Agate Beads: Each bead represents a meal donation made in honor of your dog. For each purchase, 22 meals will be donated to rescues and shelters through RescueBank®

Dog Books By and For Dog Lovers

  • There are so many things I would love to have on your list! First that bottle stopper!!! So adorable. I have always wanted to try a Furbo and also am curious about the Barkbath.

    P.S.: What an adorable photo of you guys!

  • I think the one GO TO thing for us here would be the car cover. How useful is this! Practical, and it looks nice too. I’d love one for the car anyway!!!

  • I love reading all the lists although we do not celebrate Christmas, it gives me such an inside look as to what is going on in the world gift wise without going to stores, thanks so much

  • Great list, so many great gift ideas. I’ve been looking at the CleverPet Hub, but can’t bring myself to spend that much on a dog toy.

    love to see more made in canada products for sale thanks!

    • Profile photo of Talent Hounds

      Good idea- Kilo’s bow ties and bandanas are mainly made in Canada and the painting of him is by a local Ontario artist. We buy Calendars benefiting local rescues like Igor’s for PugALug and Homeward Bound. Have you seen any other cool Canadian items?

  • OMD I want the Bissel BarkBath and the Furbo SO MUCH!!! These are two things as a pet parent I have had my eyes on! I need to get my pets PAWS on them SOON! What a great giveaway too!

  • That pug sweater is adorable. I’m always jealous that certain breeds (pugs, Corgis, dachshunds) show up on apparel and accessories more! Need more Yorkie things.

  • What a great selection of Christmas ideas for the holidays. You know I never heard of a boot scraper before? My favorites are the Bissel cleaning products and the personalized mugs and memorial bracelet. Great giveaway. Someone is going to be one happy camper.

  • I think I need that Bissel Pet stain remover. I have a big one – carpet cleaner – and I have to lug it upstairs every time my dog Victor pees on the carpet… which is often

  • Wonderful items for dogs and dog lovers. I can’t get enough cat PJs! Believe it or not, I only have 2 more presents to buy. Now to get busy wrapping.

  • I would like to get the clever pet hub …

  • Doggy Boot Scrappers …

  • Erin Lewis 7 months ago

    I love the car cover…that is definitely a staple for every dog owner!

  • Kim Tanti 7 months ago

    There is no better friend than a dog. My daughter and son inlaw just moved back to Ontario from Calgary. They have rescue animals. They are such well taken care of animals. I have never seen coats so beautiful . It pays to purchase the expensive food for them.

  • Would love to win!
