Christmas Gift Ideas for Dog Lovers

December 10, 2011

Yorkie Dog Figurine

If you are like me, you have a lot of friends who also love their dogs. So what better gift to give this Christmas than a dog-related gift? Here are some great gift ideas for dog lovers:

Pet Travel Products
If you have a friend who loves to pamper their small dog, consider a stylish pet car seat. Other pet travel products include a smart dog car harness or durable pet barrier.

Dog Breed Figurines
If your friend has a purebred dog, consider a dog breed figurine. They are cute and relatively inexpensive.

Dog Pooper Scooper
Have you heard your friend complain about what a hassle it is to keep the dog poo picked up in their yard? Consider this great product, Scoopy-the-Poo.

Books About Dogs
There are lots of great dog stories out there. Check out our Dog Lover’s Book Store for some great ones!

Dog Bed
I don’t know about you, but I have a dog bed in almost every room of my house. This is because my dogs follow me around wherever I go and like to be in the same room that I am in. Here is a review on the Caddis Corner dog bed for large dogs. Other dog beds are available at our a-store, The Quality Dog Bed Store.

Dog Sweaters
Dog sweaters are needed now more than ever, especially for small dogs. And there are so many different colors and styles to choose from. The Protective Clothes for Dogs Store, an a-store, has a few dog sweaters, dog boots, dog hats, and raincoats for dogs to choose from.

Dog Brush
Perhaps your friend already has a number of dog brushes for their dog. But perhaps they have also told you that nothing seems to work. Have they tried the Furminator or ShedZilla?

Walking Harness
My dog Maya is a very energetic Labrador Retriever. If you have ever had a Lab, then you know what I mean. And you also know how difficult it can be to walk a Lab because they are so excited. Nothing seems to work. That is, until the Pull No More dog leash/harness. Check out my review on this great product. I can promise you that it has done wonders for Maya.

Dog Toys
We just wrote a blog post a few days ago about our dog toy reviews. Check out Great Christmas Toys for Dogs for more information.

Dog Movies
There are so many great dog movies out there. There are the classics like, Lassie Come Home, Old Yeller, and The Incredible Journey. There are also some adorable modern dog movies like Cats & Dogs, Hachi, A Dog’s Tale, and Snow Dogs. Find these and other great dog movies at our a-store, Movies About Dogs.

Dog Book Review – Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul

May 14, 2010


I cried with tears of both sadness and joy when I read Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul. I went through a whole box of Kleenex. While some of the stories were sad, they were only sad because of the immeasurable happiness that they brought to their owners before they passed on.
 One of the stories includes a very old story which you may have heard before. Every day, a man would go catch the trolley and his dog, Jack, would follow him. When the man got on the trolley, Jack would go home. But he would always come back to meet the man when the trolley brought him back home. One day, the man had to move but couldn’t take Jack with him. He gave Jack away to a family to take care of him, but Jack didn’t want that family. So he left. And every day, at the same time, he would go back to the trolley station and wait for his owner to come home. And every day for many days, the man didn’t come home. Thankfully, someone contacted Jack’s owner. He promptly came home and made sure that he caught the same trolley that he knew Jack would be waiting for. It was a happy ending for such a loyal and wonderful dog.
 There are many more such sad yet happy stories. There is one about the legendary fire dog in Chicago. His name was Felix and he even has a statue built in his honor. There is the one about Max, a beagle-mix who learned how to open the refrigerator. There is one about Bashur, the Iraqi dog and Gremlin, a US Navy dog.  Go to our affiliate site called Dog Lover’s Book Store to order your book.
