Holiday Gifts for Puppies

December 15, 2020

Happy Holidays! Are you celebrating the holiday season with a new puppy? If so, we suspect that you’re going to get some super cute pictures this year. Don’t forget to put some things in little Fido’s stocking! A Peterborough, ON veterinarian lists some potential suggestions below.

Grooming Supplies

You’ll want to get little Fido used to the idea of getting bathed and brushed regularly. A beauty kit is a great stocking stuffer for your furry friend! Add brushes, shampoos, pet wipes, round-end scissors, and pet dental supplies. Ear cleaners and tearstain wash will also be helpful for some pups.


Toys are very important for puppies. Your four-legged friend will need lots of chew toys, as he’ll be looking to gnaw on things as his teeth come in. Don’t forget to snap some adorable photos of little Fido playing with his new things!

Paw Care

Snow, salt, sand, and ice can all be pretty rough on Fido’s paws. After all, he’s running around barefoot! Nail trims are also important. Give your pooch a doggy manicure set. You can include paw balm or wax, paw wipes, a good set of clippers, and perhaps some booties.


Those delicious holiday snacks are a big part of many holiday festivities. You can try a few types of store-bought treats, or look up some dog treat recipes and make your own. Just don’t give your furry pal too many at once!

Pupscription Box

Puppies can go through toys and snacks very quickly. Consider signing your pooch up for his own goodie box!

Sporting Goods

One of the best things about having a younger dog is that your pet will be more than happy to accompany you to parks, trails, and other outdoor outings. Get your canine companion a backpack to take with you on the go. You’ll want to stock it with things you’ll want to have with you at all times, such as waste baggies, treats, a pet first-aid kit, a towel, collapsible dishes, and a tie-out line.


Does little Fido have thin fur? If so, he’ll need some extra protection against Ontario’s brutal cold. Pick up a few sweaters for your canine pal. Just make sure that everything fits well, and is not tight, hot, itchy, or restricting.
