‘Tis the season! Several winter holidays lay right around the corner! Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and other religious and spiritual holidays are a loving time to feel grateful and give gifts! In this blog, you’ll get fun ideas for holiday gifts for your puppy! 


A cute fluffy dog plays with a dog puzzle toy that it got for Christmas, as one of the best holiday gifts for your puppy.

Dogs of all ages, including puppies, need mental exercise. Mentally stimulating games include playing with other dogs, learning and practicing commands with their owners, and of course, playing mentally challenging games by themselves. There are some great dog puzzles on the market today. Dog puzzles provide dogs of all ages to exercise their minds as they figure out how to obtain the treats that are inside the puzzle! 

Pet Zone IQ Treat Dispensing Ball

We love this dog puzzle, because it’s:

  • Mentally Stimulating Toys for Dogs: This dog treat toy keeps dogs mentally and physically active while they play. Available in two sizes – 3″ for cats and small dogs (10 Pounds and up, not suitable for Toy Dog Breeds) and 4″ for larger dogs
  • Treat Dispensing Dog Toys: Your furry friend gets smarter as they play with this interactive dog toy, learning how to roll the ball to get dog treats to fall out. Adjust the desired difficulty level using the ball’s adjustable interior disc
  • Easy To Use And Clean: Our dog mental stimulation toys conveniently use your dog’s favorite dry treats or kibble. It is made from hard plastic that disassembles for easy cleaning. Rinse in warm soapy water and dry after use

Puppies, dogs, and other pets love toys. The best holiday gifts for your puppy are often the simplest. Puppies love having their own stuffed animal to cuddle, covet, and love! Here are a few fun squeaky toys that your puppy is sure to cherish this holiday season and into the New Year! 

Hear Doggy UltraSonic Squeaker Toy

What’s better than a plush squeaky toy for your dog? A plush squeaky toy that you won’t be able to hear! We love this company for making “squeaky” toys that only dogs can hear! 

  • This cuddly soft plush toy is perfect for playtime and has a built-in ultrasonic squeaker that only your dog can hear!
  • Includes an ultrasonic silent squeaker, you don’t have to worry about unnecessary noise while your dog plays on this toy, all you’ll hear is a quiet puff of air. Ideal for both the home and office.

  • This quiet dog toy comes cutely shaped like a Rave Gator, Elephant, Monkey, Simba, Flamingo, Squirrel, Ostrich, Giraffe, so pick whichever one you like best.

Outward Hound Invincibles Green Gecko Plush Dog Toy

We love this squeaking dog toy because it doesn’t have any stuffing inside. It’s actually “flat” and therefore has a better chance of standing up to the natural wear and tear that occurs from your dog. 

  • Longer-lasting plush dog toy for dogs to fetch, toss, and cuddle; cute on the outside, tough on the inside
  • Strong binding and an interior layer of tough material (K-9 TUFF GUARD) for extended play compared to traditional plush toys
  • Stuffing free: fun for your dog, less mess for you
  • Jumbo squeakers keep dogs entertained
