Christmas doesn’t always have to be about people. You might want to show a little love and appreciation for your furry friends that stick with you through thick and thin. For some of us this is our pigs, our goats, and even our chickens.
For most of us pets deserve a lot of love and attention, and you can include them in your holiday festivities by getting them a few Christmas gifts as well.
Heated Pet Bed
A heated pet bed uses just enough heat to make the most comfortable place for your pets.
They’re not too expensive, but they’ll certainly see a whole lot of use, and will likely become their new favorite spot.
You certainly can’t go wrong with some good treats. Something that’s only given to pets on special occasions or when they do something good will always make a pet light up with joy.
Many dogs get excited at the very word “treat,” and all animals get excited at the sight of them. Get some fancier flavored treats and spoil your pets a bit this Christmas. If you have a cat or a bigger dog, chances are they probably like to go through toys pretty frequently.
Chickens also love treats in the winter. It’s usually the only time I will consider buying my chickens a treat!
Whether they get torn up, worn out, or dunked in water, those toys see a lot of use. New toys are always going to be a welcome addition for a pet. You can get some pretty advanced toys now, including remote controlled ones that you can use with your phone.
My personal favorite toy for my pigs is the treat ball. I still use them constantly with all our pigs.
For more exploratory animals, a good quality play place is going to be a good time for them for sure. Something with a lot of tunnels to climb through and levels to sit on top of can entertain your pets for hours, and give them a new little hangout place for them to relax and enjoy sitting around all day.
You can get them in all shapes and sizes, whether it be smaller plastic ones for things like mice or gerbils all the way up to bigger, more complex ones for cats.
Finally, you should see if you can get some good shampoo or other cleaning products for your animals.
A new shampoo can give a dog a fresh looking coat and eliminate any odors that they might have acquired by running around outside, and you can even get ones that are extremely animal friendly. It will keep them feeling good so they’re happier and healthier, too!
