It’s that time of year again! For me, Christmas is my favorite time of year. The only part I don’t like so much is wondering what gifts to give people. Fortunately, it’s much easier buying gifts for my dogs.
This gift guide will give you some ideas of what to get for your pupsters and for anyone on your list who is a dog person. You might even find something to get for yourself too!
First I’m going to share what is sure to be your dog’s favorite category of gifts which is toys and treats!
KONG Classic Dog Toy, X-Small, Red
If you have never tried one of these with your dog, you are in for a treat. Literally. These toys are fun to chew on by themselves. They bob around too with their interesting shape. But what makes them special is that you can put small treats or peanut butter in them. Your dog will have hours of fun trying to get the treats out. These toys are great to give your dog when you leave the house for awhile. It will keep him entertained so that he barely notices you have left. Another benefit is they are really durable. My dogs have had theirs for about 5 years and they are stilling going strong.
PetQwerks Talking Babble Ball Toy for Dogs and Cats, Small
This is a an all time favorite for dogs and pet parents alike. Dogs love playing with this thing. As soon as the ball is touched, it starts babbling silly phrases. It will turn itself off when not played with. It’s made of a durable hard plastic.
Cardinal Laboratories Botanic Training Rewards Mini Treats Small Dogs, Bacon, 4-Ounce
These great little treats are Chihuahua sized and only have 1 and a half calories. They come in bacon flavor or chicken flavor and are made in the USA.
ZippyPaws Holiday Squeakie Buddies Squeaky No Stuffing Plush Dog Toy, 3-Pack
You get not one toy, but all 3 toys for your Chi! They don’t have stuffing in them but do have a squeaker.
PetSafe Busy Buddy Bristle Bone Dog Toy, Extra Small
If you have a chewer in your house, this is a great toy to keep them entertained. I gave one of these to my grand-puppy who loves to chew and he plays with this all the time. It’s been really durable too. As a plus, it helps keep your dog’s teeth clean.
Next we have clothes for your Chihuahhua.
ACEFAST Puppy Pet Dog Winter Hoodie Bowknot Warm Coat Soft Plush Princess Jasmine Dress (Pink, S)

These soft warm boots will keep your Chi’s paws warm and toasty this winter.

This sweatshirt hoodie comes in lots of different colors and sizes. Customers stated that it held up well and felt like the same sweatshirt material that people sweatshirts are made of.
Now, lets look at some neat things for your dog.
PetPizzaz Burrow Beds
I own one of these myself and it is my Chi’s favorite bed. It’s my grand-puppy’s favorite bed too so there’s sometimes an “argument” over who gets this bed. These are a little on the pricey side, but well worth it. They are handmade here in the USA and very durable.
Kurgo Skybox Dog Booster Seat, Black/Orange
What I love about this car seat is that it sits up high so your pup can see out the window and enjoy the view. I also like that the liner is washable.
K&H Thermo-Pet Mat 14″ x 28″, Mocha
Great for Chis, this heating pad will keep your chilly pup nice and warm. The cover can be washed too.
Easy Walk Dog Harness Vest for Small Dog Breeds. New 2014! Chai’s Choice Best – Soft Durable Microfiber Mesh with Reflective Striping Ensures Years of Use and Maximum Comfort for Your Pet. 30 Day Money Back Guarantee! (X-small)
Soft and comfortable for your pup, this harness is a much better choice than using just a collar to attach a leash on when walking your chi. The harness has reflective piping that will make her more noticeable when walking at night.
Solvit PupSTEP Plus Pet Stairs
These stairs have been one of the best buys I have ever made. I was so tired of having my chi wake me up in the night to pick her up and put her on the bed. I sleep a lot better now and she gets up and down off the bed on her own. Some pet parents use these by their couches so their dog can get up and down more easily. After several people have written to me to tell me how their Chihuahua was injured while jumping off the couch, I can see why these are such lifesavers!

Does your dog have his own stocking? Now you can get this adorable stocking with free personalization for your pup! It would also make a cute gift for the dog lover in your life.
Last but not least, we have gifts for you, the pet-parent.
