You know how some dogs have so much thick fur you think it’d make a great coat if you could just knit that fur? So did Kobe the Pyr, a Great Pryenees from Australia’s parents! They live in the Blue Mountains in Australia, and they realized that Kobe’s fur would make great clothing for other pups who weren’t blessed with such thick fur during the cold. Thus, Kotes by Kobe was born, and these beautiful dog clothing items and accessories are made out of recycled dog fur and fibers! They keep your doggo super warm (and even you, as they offer Kompanion Kotes of matching gear for hoomans) and they are lined with blends of dog fur, merino and corriedale wool. They’re adjustable for the perfect fit, and even better, every purchase of a Kote by Kobe goes to help dog charities and raise awareness for rescue pups. Warmth for a doggo’s body and soul. Yes, please!

(But just in case, when you unbox their gift, toss in a few treats inside so they could properly test it.) HoneyGuaridan A36 is well-made, easy to program, and fully automatic, and it is ideal for dogs who are on a strict diet with multiple meals each day, or pets whose pawrents work long hours.

Whether you have a puppy or a four-legged senior in his golden years, you can’t go wrong with this toy- it’s a multigenerational favorite!
