3. Water Fountain
Number three on our list of Christmas gifts for dogs is a water fountain. Veterinarians agree that pets should always have fresh, clean water available at all times. This is especially true for cats, as they tend to drink less water than their canine friends. Water fountains are an excellent way to encourage your pet to drink more water which is good for their kidneys and overall health. Water fountains come in many unique forms. Some look like pieces of art, while others allow your pet to turn on and off the outside hose using their paw! Click here to see the many options available.
4. New leash and/or collar
Number four on our list of Christmas gifts for pets is a new leash and/or collar. Leashes and collars are a way for your pet to express themselves…okay maybe it is a way for you to express your taste, but you’re catching our drift! Leashes and collars have come so far over the years. No more mundane leather leashes and collar with metal buckles. Think flowers, bow ties, and crazy patterns. For safety reasons, we recommend steering clear of retractable leashes and sticking to a leash that is 4 or 6 feet in length. The choices are limitless!
