Holiday Gifts for Puppies

Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? Or are you going to wait for the last minute? Don’t forget to pick up something for your canine buddy! Read on as a London, ON vet lists some great holiday gifts for puppies.

Chew Toys

The teething stage can be a bit challenging for puppy parents. As little Fido’s teeth come in, he’ll want to gnaw on anything and everything in sight. Get your pooch some suitable chew toys. Kong toys are a great option!

Dental Products

Oral care is very important part of your furry pal’s overall health regimen. Get the little guy started out on the right paw in life by teaching him to accept having his teeth brushed.


A comfy bed is a must for little Fido. Puppies are super cute when they are curled up in their beds! (Tip: if your pup is a large breed, you’ll want to get him a bed that will still fit him when he’s fully grown.)


Crate training is very beneficial. Even if you don’t plan to crate Fido regularly, it will still help to get him used to the idea. As with the bed, get a crate that will fit your pet’s estimated adult size. Otherwise, you’ll be buying a new one in a few months! Add soft bedding and toys to make it cozy and inviting.

Doggy Daycare

Socialization is very important part of little Fido’s development. Exposing him to new experiences, faces, and places while he is little will help him form an open mind about the world. If you don’t have a lot of time for hosting puppy parties or going to the doggy park, enroll your furry buddy in doggy daycare.


As you may have noticed, little Fido is very frisky and energetic. Making sure your pooch has plenty of fun toys is very important! Classic doggy toys, like rope pulls, are fine. You can also offer your puppy a fun modern toy, like a mechanical ball launcher or an automated laser pointer.


Treats are a great gift for dogs of all ages. Just be sure to choose healthy, nourishing snacks. Or, make your own! Look online for recipes that use safe, suitable ingredients. Ask your vet for more information.
