Santa Claus is coming to town – so let’s hope he’s got something thoughtful for your dog! Of course, Saint Nicholas can’t always be relied upon to bring the best gifts, so you’ll want to make sure your precious pet gets everything it may want on Christmas Day. There’s going to be plenty of temptation to spoil your dog with treats like bones and squeaky toys. Even though there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this, you should also make sure your canine gets some items that will improve their health, comfort and intelligence. With that in mind, here are three presents that would certainly achieve this.
Remember, it’s not just you who will be struggling to adjust to the low temperatures this winter. Instead, your four-legged friend will also feel the brunt of the cold – especially when it’s time for a walk. The best way to combat the chilly conditions is with a microwave heat pad. Once warmed up, it can provide your dog with up to 10 hours of comfort.
Your dog probably isn’t too fussed about the state of their oral hygiene. But as its owner you know best. You can take a hands-on approach (literally) to combating any oral hygiene issues it may have by purchasing a finger toothbrush. Once you start using it routinely you should find that problems such as tooth decay and bad breath subside for your pooch.
Sadly, your dog might not get all the attention it deserves over the festive season. After all, you’ll have relatives to see and friends to spend time with. Instead of allowing your pet to become bored, why not invest in classic Kong. This toy can occupy your four-legged friend for hours on end, as well as mentally stimulating it.
The day you bring home your new canine, whether its a puppy or an older dog is an exciting time. However, in order to make your new family member feel welcome and ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible it's important to prepare your home beforehand.
