Treat 2020 Wall Calendar
As soon as Fido hears the word “Treat,” he’ll drop everything and come running, locking his eyes onto the bite-sized chunk as he beckons it into his open mouth. Sometimes, he’ll get lucky and it will land perfectly on his tongue, but life doesn’t always run that smoothly. The Treat 2020 Wall Calendar captures the success and failure of treat-catching in exquisite and hilarious detail.
Overland Dog Gear Ultimate Week Away Dog Duffle
Remembering to pack everything for a canine adventure is a hurdle, but finding it all in your luggage can be just as difficult. The Overland Dog Gear Ultimate Week Away Dog Duffle organizes pet travel once and for all, and is equipped with lined carriers for food and treats, zippered sections for secure storage, and removable placemats and bowls. It even meets airline carry-on requirements.
Dog Fart Extinguisher
This really is a must-have for any pet owner, especially during the holiday season. With stray Brussels sprouts flying around and rich holiday treats a-plenty for your pup, the home may not smell of gingerbread and pine for long! Before Fido gets to blame Aunt Susan for his faux-pas, secure your holidays with this Dog Fart Extinguisher. It will have your house smelling of grapefruit, black currant, rose and musk.
Dachshund Menorah by Jonathan Adler
Jonathan Adler is an American potter with ceramic shops across America and Europe. His fun menorah is the perfect gift for Jewish dog lovers to use during Hanukkah. Fido can help light the candles placed in eight holes along the back of this sleek Dachshund. Designed with his signature, all-white ceramic relief pattern, the Jonathan Adler Dachshund Menorah is lit.
Rescue Dog Wines
The folks at Rescue Dog Wines love two things: great vino and saving pups. By producing fine wines from local Lodi, CA grapes, they bring awareness and financial support to the rescue dog movement. Fifty percent of the company’s profits support rescue organizations. For the connoisseurs, a subscription to a wine club would make a great gift. Alternatively, its awesome swag includes funky tees, tumblers and wine bottle covers.
Fido is like royalty to us, so why not envelope him in elaborate regalia forever? Iconic Paw will turn a picture of your dog-loving relative’s pup into a masterpiece. Select the outfit that best suits the pooch, from a baroness or aristocrat to a socialite and commander. Iconic Paw ships portraits worldwide and aims to get your canine’s portrait completed faster than “Van Dogh” ever could have.
The Dog Went Over the Mountain
Peter Zheutlin gained recognition in the rescue world with his New York Times bestseller, “The Dog Went Over the Mountain: Travels With Albie: An American Journey.” Inspired by John Steinbeck’s “Travels with Charley,'' Peter embarked on a 9,000-mile, six-week pilgrimage to rediscover the country with his partner in crime and best friend, Albie. His latest adventure shows the bond between canine and human, making it the perfect gift for the dog-lover in your life. Read our interview with Peter to find out more.
Cuteboom Canvas Laundry Bag – Sleeping Dog
Separating your white and dark clothes has never looked more adorable. This Cuteboom Canvas Laundry Bag may have you looking forward to laundry day. It's a handy gift that also doubles as a travel bag, beach bag or storage bag.
In an ideal world, every waking moment could be spent with our pets, but sometimes that’s just not possible (don’t worry, we’re working on it). If there’s no way Fido can accompany your friend, a comforting blanket with their canine’s cute grin all over it could be the next best thing. Printy Pets also can print his face on mugs, phone cases, canvases, shirts, bags and more.
