BlogPaws Great Gifts for Pets Holiday Gift Guide

Gifts for Your Pets! 2012 Holiday Gift Guide from BlogPaws and High Paw Media

BlogPaws Great Gifts for Pets Holiday Gift Guide has been announced!  While I know that we have some great suggestions for gift giving we have been giving you over the past few weeks, the folks at BlogPaws has come up with their list, which includes some really special and unique products for pets and we are thrilled to share them here with you.

Here are just a few of the products:


The Thundershirt is an anti-stress wrap that can help with the anxiety that comes on during thunderstorms.  It’s lightweight and breathable and when wrapped around your dog (or cat) it applies gentle pressure, giving your dog a feeling of comfort.  We have a Thundershirt for Riley (see below) because she is terrified of storms.  Kiko is having trouble with storms now, so she is next on our list to get a Thundershirt.

For a limited time, the company is offering a FREE personalized stocking and a squeaky toy for holiday purchases!  Use code GIFT12 at checkout and be sure to type the name you want embroidered in the “Gift Notes” box.

Thundershirt comes in a variety of sizes for both cats and dogs and also come in a variety of colors for dogs and Heather Grey for cats.

We are very familiar with FURminator grooming tools in the Doggies and Stuff household!  We use them on a regular basis to help with pet shedding.  If you are looking for the perfect stocking stuffer, check out FURminator’s new pet grooming products that include nail clippers, nail grinders, slicker brushes, rakes, combs, dual brushes and curry brushes.

The new products were designed by FURminator to provide high quality grooming performance.  They include bendable, FUR-flex necks and ergonomic durable grip handles to ensure enjoyable experience for pets and pet parents, and anti-microbial additives and other safety features to protect pets from harm.

FURminator products are sold at pet specialty stores like our local Pet Supplies Plus, professional pet groomers, veterinary practices and rescue organizations.

Jones Natural Chews

We have not had the pleasure of sampling these treats but when I researched Jones Natural Chews I was thrilled to see that they use only natural ingredients and their products are made right here in the USA.  As you know, we are huge supporters of products make right here in the states and made with natural ingredients.  So, we look forward to trying these out at some point.

These luscious juicy beef ribs have a pork skin wrapped around for a two in one treat!  Rib rollers are made with USA beef rib and USA pork skin.  These are oven baked with no artificial ingredients added.  This all-natural chew is 7-8” long and best for small to medium size dogs.  All Jones products are 100% grown and made in the USA.

Helping Udders

Here comes the Udder Tug, a rugged and durable dog toy designed for hours of fun and play.  I know lots of dogs that would benefit from having such durable dog toys.  In fact, a neighbor of mine has a dog that tears up every single dog toy she gets, so she needs tough dog toys.  Models are available for small, medium and large dogs.  Made in the USA, these tough dog toys are great for throw and fetch, general play or exercise indoors or outside.  Your dog will be intrigued by this product.  They have a “moo-tastic” cow smell that only dogs can sense and then get excited about.  Most of the Tugs feature a hand grip for fun and exercise for you and your dog.  Udder Tugs are especially great gifts this holiday season for friends, family and their dogs.

There are 15 toys to choose from and each will give your pup hours of interactive play time and exercise.  I am a fan of interactive toys.  In fact, Kiko is most intrigued by these types of toys.  The problem-solving that comes with these types of toys are very rewarding for your dog.

You know how I love talking about brands that give back and Helping Utters is no exception.  A donation of 25% from each Udder Tug sale goes to supporting rescues and shelters around the country.  In fact, over 650 pet charities in the USA, selected by Helping Utters customers, have received donations from the sales of their toys.

Soggy Doggy

Oh boy!  We haven’t tried this yet but we hope to at some point.  I know how awful it is to have your dogs track wet, muddy paws through the house.  I have a towel by the back door and I wipe the girls’ paws off when they come in the door, so it would be great to have a product that helps with that.

Each of the “noodles” in the Soggy Doggy Doormat® and Soggy Doggy Super Shammy is made from millions of textured, ultrafine strands woven together, so the surface area of these products is much greater than meets the eye! The expansive surface area is the secret to microfiber chenille’s tremendous absorbing power and super-fast drying.

The microfiber chenille blend allows the Soggy Doggy Doormats® and Super Shammys to soak up water and dirt like a sponge!  The doormats absorb 5x more water than regular cotton doormats and the Super Shammy can hold up to 7x its weight in water!  The material is exceptionally hard-working and goes right in the washer and dryer!

Where to purchase:
Price: $34.99 – $84.99

We have a ModaPet Bowl in Cinnamut, a beautiful reddish color that really stands out.  The design of the bowl is modern and sleek, a great pet bowl for the stylish, hip doggy.  These specific food and water bowls come in 5 colors but the Cinnamutt and Green with Envy colors are perfect for the holiday season.

“Finally a bowl that you don’t have to hide for holiday guests,” Harvey Miller, Managing Director of ModaPet, said.  “These are great because they are very festive for the holidays, but are purposely void of pictures or symbols so they can stay long after the lights come down and stockings are all packed up.”

The ModaPet design team carefully assesses each project and is personally involved from concept through manufacturing, and finally, delivery to the customer.  All products are manufactured using certified food grade and BPA-free composites to protect the health of every pet.  Products designed by ModaPet carefully take into account the use of the product and add a strong dose of “moda”(Italian for fashion).

Each bowl features BPA-free composites, is made of food grade polymer, is microwavable, dishwasher safe and extremely durable. The ModaPet bowls are also constructed with non-slip bases to help keep bowls in place while pets eat.

Price: $14.95-$24.95

      Jeanne – The Thundershirt works for some and not for others. It’s worth checking out, however. I would combine it with a natural calming mist. I can recommend a couple if you want to email me. ~Doreen
