When you hang your stockings on the fireplace mantle this Christmas Eve, don’t forget to fill one for your furry friend. Here are a few of our favorite stocking stuffers your dog will love.

1. Editor’s Choice: KONG – Classic Dog Toy

You just can’t go wrong with the classics. If you haven’t already got your pet a KONG, now is the time to remedy that mistake. This versatile rubber toy encourages healthy play and satisfies your pet’s instinctual needs – it will provide a much-needed challenge and mental stimulation any dog needs. The way it works is you fill it with something yummy, like kibble or peanut butter (pro tip: you can freeze it for refreshment in the summer months), and let your pooch figure out how to get to the delicious treat inside. Tough and durable, this toy will withstand gnawing and pawing, can be fetched, tossed around, and has an erratic bounce that dogs love. One toy and so many opportunities for fun! To boot, there are several size and texture options available to suit any dog’s age and breed – this particular design is best suited for adult, large breed dogs.

2. Runner Up: Bodhi Dog Natural Pet Cologne

What if we told you that stinky snuggles with your pooch don’t have to be stinky? We all love our dogs, but if we’re being honest, they don’t really smell like roses all the time. This natural pet cologne is a great way to get rid of dog body odor without having to bathe your pet – it is made with all natural, pet-safe ingredients, too, so you don’t have to feel guilty for dousing your pooch. The application is straightforward enough: spritzing all over the coat in short bursts will be more than enough to banish any odor, and if you want to evenly distribute the scent, you can go through the fur with a comb afterwards to spread it around. There are several scent options available to meet anyone’s preference: choose between Baby Powder, Holiday Cider, Lilac, Orange Sherbert, Patchouli, Pumpkin Spice, Sugar Cookie, or Winter Wonderland.

3. Best for Small Dogs – Weewooday Holiday Dog Harnesses

You can’t just have one look for your pup this holiday season. After all, there are too many parties to attend, and too many walks at the dog park to be seen in the same outfit more than once! These three-piece set by Weewooday offers three different holiday looks that your pup can sport casually, or to an elegant holiday party. There’s a black plaid, red plaid, and a grey print that looks great on male and female pups. Each harness even has an adorable bowtie that brings the elegance up a notch.

These particular harness vests are made for puppies and smaller breed dogs, so this won’t be a great option if you have a German Shepherd or Mastiff. They’re easy to put on with a simple slide on, and there is a D-ring clip to attach the matching leash that comes with each harness. It’s also available in three sizes: small, medium and large. This is a perfect stocking stuffer, or for them to enjoy leading up to the holiday season!

4. Customer’s Choice: ZippyPaws Holiday Burrow, Interactive Squeaky Hide and Seek Plush Dog Toy

We heard your dog likes Christmas stockings, so we put a Christmas stocking in his Christmas stocking! This interactive dog toy is a great choice for a gift at any moment, but the festive design makes it perfect for the holidays. Shaped as a stocking, this plush toy hides a secret: 3 plush squeaky bones your dog will enjoy digging out of the stocking. This promotes nose work, keeps your pupper engaged for hours on end, and it’s appropriate for dogs of all ages. The size makes it suitable for small and medium sized breeds, but not if they’re aggressive chewers.

In addition to the festive stocking-shaped toy, you can choose between 17 different designs, many of them holiday-themed, such as a Gingerbread House or Santa’s workshop. The choice is yours, and whichever design you pick you can rest assured that your four-legged bestie will be ecstatic on Christmas morning when they get to play with it!

5. Best Practical: GoTags Personalized Dog Collar

Stocking stuffers can be practical – sure, you want something cute and fun for your pet, but there are some great options that will actually be useful in the long run. A small and practical gift any pooch could use is definitely a collar, and what better design than a personalized one? This durable nylon collar comes with a slide-on stainless steel dog ID tag that you can personalize with your pet’s name and your contact info, so that in case your pet gets lost, they can quickly be returned to their owner. To boot, this dog collar also features a reflective strip for better visibility and nighttime safety and comes in 5 vibrant colors that are easy to spot from a distance. A clever design through and through, this collar also features a stainless-steel D-ring for leash attachment and a secure plastic side release buckle for easy one handed quick release. It comes in sizes from X-small to large.

6. Best Stylish: Canada Pooch Sierra Dog Scarf

The snow and cold of winter may look beautiful around Christmas time, creating a winter wonderland scene to celebrate the holidays. However, it’s often accompanied by bitterly cold temperatures. Why not include something special to keep your pet warm this holiday season?

Canada Pooch is a Canadian-owned company, based in Toronto, Canada. If there’s anything that Canadians know well, it’s how to deal with the winter cold.

The Sierra Scarf is a knit scarf made from 100% acrylic material. This means that it won’t just look stylish on your dog, but it’s also easy to clean! The knit design creates a stretchy, comfortable fit with neck circumference sizes ranging from 9″ to 23″.

7. Best for Large Dogs: VANFINE Dog Squeaky Toy

For big doggos, you need to go big – even the stocking you’re stuffing should be large enough to hold goodies your gentle giants could enjoy. This squeaky toy is a great choice for all those large breed dogs, as it is both durable and big enough to endure all the chewing and pawing your pet will throw at it. Made from non-toxic, durable, and eco-friendly rubber material, this squeaky toy comes in several shapes so you can pick the one that suits your pet the best – cube, cylinder, rubik, or football. But you haven’t even heard the best part yet. The rubber is beef flavored, so once your pooch sinks their teeth into it, they won’t be able to resist it! Fun for hours on end is guaranteed – and what more could a dog want?

8. Best Edible: Portland Pet Food Company Bacon Brew Biscuit Dog Treats

What’s Christmas without delicious foods? Dog treats make great pet stocking stuffers, and these healthy, delicious biscuits for canines rank pretty high on any pooch’s list. Sourced and made in the USA from wholesome, limited, human-grade ingredients, these biscuits are easily digestible, free from artificial substances, preservatives, hormones, and meat by-products. Even though they contain grain, they are made with clean, limited ingredients so they can even be a good choice for dogs with food sensitivities and sensitive stomachs. Only the best for your pampered furbaby! The biscuits are specially prepared (baked twice) to have a satisfying crunch to them and come in various flavor options: bacon, beef broth, or pumpkin and are packed in 5 oz bags. And you can’t miss with any of them!

9. Best for Seniors: Strawfield Pets Senior Multivitamin Probiotic Soft Chews

In their golden years, dogs need a little help to stay in their best form – from joint pain to digestive issues, there are plenty of problems that affect elderly dogs, and a quality supplement can help remedy many of them. This particular formula boasts an 8-in-1 effect that covers all the important senior dog ailments and helps prevent or relieve symptoms, ensuring your dog feels happy and healthy as they age. The ingredients include Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM and Hyaluronic Acid that improve mobility and keep hips and joints lubricated, probiotics and prebiotics to support healthy digestion, and essential fatty acids that keep their coat shiny and skin soft. To boot, a proprietary blend of vitamins and minerals will boost your pet’s immune system and support cardiac health, whereas ingredients such as DL methionine and milk thistle are there for healthy liver and kidney and function. Everything a senior needs to thrive – and more!

10. Best for Puppies: NWK Pet Teether Cooling Chew Toy

Puppies are cute, fluffy, and sweet as can be, but they are also a lot of work. This is particularly true when they reach the teething stage: their sore gums and erupting permanent teeth drive them to chew anything and everything to try and relieve the irritation, from your favorite shoes to sofa legs. If you want to prevent your valuables from being destroyed and ease your pet’s teething troubles at the same time, a good chewing toy can be just the thing. This teething ring for puppies takes things to a whole other level with its clever design – not only that it’s durable enough to be gnawed, but it can also be filled with water and frozen for instant cooling relief for their sore gums. Made from non-toxic materials, this cooling chew toy also features nifty nubs and ridges that will massage your pet’s gums and remove plaque and tartar buildup.
