It’s that time of year again when we all start scrambling to find the perfect gifts for our loved ones. Like most pet lovers, you want to ensure your pets have as much fun as everyone else during the holiday season. With so many new and exciting toys on the market, it can take time to choose the right ones. Don’t worry—we’ve done the research for you! In addition to entertainment and development, safety is an important aspect to consider when picking the right toy. Here are some ideas on the top 4 safest toys and gifts for your pets this holiday season.
No matter the size of your dog, or their preferred treat, there is a kong for them. These rubber toys are perfect for stuffing with treats or peanut butter and come in various shapes and sizes. Kongs come in all shapes and sizes, and the stuffing can range from creamy fillings like peanut butter, sugar-free yogurt, or fruits and vegetables. These toys can be a delicious snack, and a source of entertainment as your dog will take their time licking their kong clean. This is a great and safe way to keep your pet preoccupied while you’re busy entertaining guests this holiday season.
Puzzle feeders are a great way to keep your pet mentally stimulated and help prevent boredom. You can buy puzzle feeders for both dogs and cats. These toys are designed for physiological stimulation through obstacles intended for your pet to get their food, but they can also be used to slow down your pet’s feeding habits. Some pets get so excited about their food they eat it so fast and can get sick. With the puzzle feeder, you can slow them down to ensure they are chewing and eating smaller portions at a time. Various types of puzzle feeders range in difficulty or purpose. Depending on your pet’s needs, be sure to research the best feeder to get your pet.
Interactive games like hide-and-seek or fetch can keep pets entertained for hours. Buying a tug toy or a ball can be very entertaining for your pet. It’s always a good idea to have some interactive toys on hand to play with your pet. Interactive games with toys are entertaining and allow you to bond with your pet through playtime. Interactive games have mental stimulation, physical activity, and great company!
Dog beds not only provide comfort and support, but they can also help regulate body temperature. Your pet can get cold in the evenings or when the seasons change. A warm bed for your pet can help them feel safe and cozy in their home. In addition to comfort and regulating body temperature, a good, firm bed and help older pets who may have sore joints or bones. Investing in a good quality bed can ensure your pet will be comfortable while they sleep and prevent additional pain or discomfort.
