With the holidays upon us, it’s time to start shopping for your loved ones – and by “loved ones” I mean your dog. In a year in which global health has been at the forefront of everyone’s mind, it’s important not to forget the health of our closest quarantine buddies. This year our Ultimate Dog Care Gift Guide focuses on the well-being of your best friend during the holiday season.  


There’s nothing your best friend loves more than a tasty treat. But why not kill two birds with one stone, and give your pup a clean mouth in the process? The Missing Link Smartmouth Dental Chews are proven to be as yummy as they are effective at maintaining the dental health of your dog. They also support hip and joint health!


One of the funnier things about owning large dogs is watching them sprawl out on blankets and dog beds that are half their body size. But as cute as it looks, hard floors can be hard on your pup’s joints as they get older. The Big Barker 7” Pillow is a highly rated orthopedic bed with over 2,000 perfect reviews on Amazon. While pricier than your average pet store bed, it’s very affordable compared to other orthopedic dog beds.

Preparing a first aid kit for pets is key to caring for your pup in an emergency. Silver Honey is a pet-friendly antibacterial product for dry or itchy skin, irritations, nicks, cuts, burns, hot spots, and more. Available in spray or ointment form, Silver Honey uses Mother Nature’s strongest antimicrobials to soothe, protect, and heal fast. Got other pets in the house? Silver Honey is pH balanced and can be safely used on animals as well as people. 


Anxiety in dogs is more common than you might think. It can be brought on by a variety of everyday moments in a human’s life that your best friend just doesn’t understand. Whether you’re moving apartments, taking a drive in the car, or simply having guests over, it can be helpful to have a natural, safe way to calm your dog’s nerves.  NaturVet’s Hemp Quiet Moments is a  calming treat that is as safe as it is effective. And your pup will love the taste. 


Does your puppy drag you down the street when you go for a walk? We’ve all been there. And with large dogs in particular, training them to heel can be an exhausting task. Enter the PetSafe Gentle Leader. This head-harness is simple to put on and painless for your dog. And it’s an excellent way to train them to stay right by your side when walking. With the slightest tug, your pup’s head will turn gently, and they will immediately slow down. 


One of the most important ways to keep your dog happy and healthy is exercise. But if your dog is a strong chewer, tennis balls don’t last long before they’re ripped into shreds. The Ultra Ball by Chuckit! is an almost indestructible rubber ball your bestie can play with for years. Available in sizes ranging from small to extra-large, the Ultra Ball is one of the most popular dog toys across the internet thanks to its amazingly durable design. Not a strong thrower? Be sure to check out Chuckit!’s Ball Launcher. It’s specifically designed to pair with the Ultra Ball to give you maximum distance on your tosses and works like a charm.   


Protecting your dog from heartworm disease is imperative. Heartgard Plus Chewables have been proven to do just that. And it is extremely easy to administer — just give your pup a single chewable each month for six months, and let Heartgard work its magic. It is important to note the recommended weight on the packaging to ensure it’s right for your dog. Be sure to contact your vet if you have any questions or concerns about heartworm medication.
