Dog Toys and Treats

 

When Strategist senior writer Karen Iorio Adelson asked experts about how to exercise a dog indoors, three of them recommended these balls.

Chuckit Ultra Ball Small (2 Pack)

2. Shelby Semel Dog Training:

Shelby Semel, the founder of Shelby Semel Dog Training, says they are a great way for dogs to burn off energy and get mental stimulation. The ones shown are small, but Amazon also sells bigger versions of the Ultra Ball for larger dogs.

DuraForce TriangleRing Tiger Dog Toy

If your recipient has nice possessions that a bouncy ball could topple, Dr. Jennifer Coates, a veterinary expert at Chewy, told Adelson about this soft dog toy that “doesn’t bounce or roll” but can still be thrown and used for tugging. It’s machine-washable and designed to withstand heavy play.

Outward Hound Tail Teaser Training Toy

4. Tail Teaser Training Toy

 

$17

Sarah Fraser, the co-founder of Instinct Dog Behavior and Training in New York, likes to give younger or adolescent dogs what’s called a flirt pole, which she says is “like a giant cat toy. For many dogs, it quickly becomes their favorite — a fantastic substitute for chasing real squirrels. Plus, it’s a great form of exercise that doesn’t require the owner to do much.” For small-to-medium dogs, she likes this option from Outward Hound.

JW Pet Hol-ee Roller Dog Toy, Mini and Medium

If the pup you’re buying for likes playing fetch, try the Hol-ee Roller, which Strategist newsletter editor Mia Leimkuhler and her rescue mini-schnauzer mix, Reggie, swear by. She describes it as “a hybrid bouncy ball and chew toy, with big holes that make it easy for smaller mouths to catch and grip and fling about.

The rubber is durable but not inflexibly hard, so errant tosses aren’t a breaking hazard, and the ball’s squishiness absorbs its own noise and shock, which is nice news for your downstairs neighbor.” It also comes in a large size.

Happy Hands Happy Dogs Tug Toy

Trainer Andrea Arden says this is “one of the most perfect tug toys I’ve found.” It’s long enough, she says, “to allow for appropriate distance from the dog to your hand” but can be rolled up, making it easy to bring along on walks or to the park where it can be used as a play reward for outdoor training. “Dogs love it,” she adds of the sturdy toy that’s also machine-washable.

KONG Wubba Friend Dog Toy

“We call it his ‘bear octopus,’ and we hate it,” writes Alice Gregory of this multi-legged dog toy. “We’re not even sure where it came from, but Mickey, our toy poodle, likes it more than anything that is not a piece of outright garbage,” which is the best praise any dog parent can give for a dog toy.

FROM $6 AT CHEWY

Outward Hound Hide-A-Squirrel and Puzzle Plush

Leimkuhler got this plush puzzle tree as a gift from a friend whose own dog was obsessed with it, and she has since gifted it to many of her other dog-parent friends. “It’s a hit every time,” she promises, adding that the tree and its included stuffed, squeaky squirrels keeps her Reggie occupied for hours.

PetSafe Busy Buddy Twist ’n Treat Dog Toy

Kate Perry, a dog trainer and the author of Training for Both Ends of the Dog Leash, likes to give “practical items that help stimulate the dog’s mind and help owners have a better relationship with their dogs.”

One of her favorite interactive treat toys for pups is the Busy Buddy Twist ’n Treat, which she describes as “great as a gift for new dog owners, and great for training a dog to work for their food.”

Arden is also a fan of this “super durable” gift, telling us it’s “especially great for puppies who need every opportunity to burn off mental and physical energy.”

FROM $7 AT AMAZON
Nina Ottosson By Outward Hound Hide N’ Slide Treat Dispensing Dog Toy

Perry, Semel, and trainer Lauren Camerini, the founder of The Peaceful Dog, all like the puzzle-feeders from Nina Ottosson. Perry calls them “Rubik’s Cubes for dogs,” while Camerini says they’re the canine equivalent of the “New York Times crossword puzzle.” With this one, you hide treats in the compartments, then your dog has to sniff and slide the pieces out of the way to get them.

In general, Camerini says, “food puzzles are great for city dogs because they provide mental enrichment, curb boredom, and are just plain fun.”

$20 AT AMAZON

Nina Ottosson By Outward Hound, Interactive Puzzle Game Dog Toy, Advanced

Semel is particularly fond of Nina Ottosson’s Tornado: “It’s a great way to feed your dog slowly and keep them busy when you need them to self-occupy, and it’s good for mental stimulation! It’s easy to clean, not super-expensive, and entertaining to watch.”

$14 AT AMAZON

Snuffle Nosework Dog Mat

12. Snuffle Nosework Dog Mat

From $34

Camerini and Lauren Novack, a consultant at Behavior Vets of NYC, both say they’ve told countless clients to pick up a snuffle mat, which delights dogs while tiring them out at the same time. “Dogs love to use their noses,” Camerini says, “and sniffing for hidden treats tires them out if you don’t have time for a long walk.

” Novack, who uses the mat with her clients to facilitate doggie relaxation, adds that “sniffing makes dogs happy, and hiding treats in this mat is one awesome way to feed them dinner and get them using their noses.”

A bonus, she says, is that “it’s washable and portable: You can take it anywhere.”

FROM $34 AT AMAZON
AWOOF Pet Snuffle Mat for Dogs

Writer Kelly Conaboy’s dog, Peter, gets a huge amount of joy from sniffing on their daily walks, so she bought him this salad-bowl-shaped snuffle mat. He loves it just as much. She hides treats in the folds of the “salad,” which keeps him busy for long periods of time. It’s a perfect gift for someone trying to work from home with a hyperactive pup.

$17 AT AMAZON
Jiminy's Cricket Peas & Sweet-Potato Dog Treats
$10

“Cricket treats are higher in protein and more nutrient dense than beef or chicken treats, and they require fewer resources like land, water, and energy to raise (and cause much lower carbon emissions),” Strategist writer Liza Corsillo says about these morsels from Jiminy’s Cricket, which are her silver poodle Uli’s favorite treats. “These are so effective that I’ve been using them to teach her tricks I never would have tried before.”

Texas-based veterinarian Sarah Ochoa previously told us that these calming dog treats help ease her dog’s anxiety. “I have tried her on many different brands, and these are the only treats that I have found that actually help,” she says. Some of the chews’ soothing ingredients include hemp, chamomile, and thiamine (also known as vitamin B).

Medterra Bacon Flavored CBD Calming Treats

Strategist senior editor Casey Lewis says these bacon-flavored CBD treats helped her parents’ elderly Labrador immensely. “He would pant and pace relentlessly, and this would calm him down. But not in an overly medicated, tranquilizer way,” she says. All her family’s dogs love the flavors of Medterra’s treats, and though her own dog is generally pretty chill, Lewis plans on using these for their next road trip.

Buck Bone Organics Antler Chews

If you want to give a dog a bone, Doug the Pug, who has more than 3 million followers on Instagram, loves these antler chews: “I have one in every room in the house!”

BarkBox Gift Subscription, Monthly

Or, if you’re not sure of exactly what type of toy or treat to give, Shirley Braha, the mom to a senior dog named Phyllis, recommends giving the gift of replenishing treats. “The first thing that comes to mind is a BarkBox subscription because I feel like dogs are always running out of treats,” she says, “and high-quality treats are weirdly expensive.”

FROM $35 AT BARKBOX

 

Dog bowls and feeders

Neater Dog Feeder, Cappuccino

$35

For dog parents who like to keep the mess to a minimum, dog mom Katie Sturino — the founder of Megababe and the 12ish Style — has a suggestion.

“The best gift I have gotten myself is the Neater Feeder bowls. I have three dogs, and they spill half a bowl when they drink, so this has saved my floors.”

$35 AT CHEWY

Outward Hound Fun Feeder Slow Feed Dog Bowl

This slow-feed dog bowl helps dogs who eat their food entirely too fast. As writer Ashlea Halpern explains, “The unusual puzzle shape of these bowls forces gluttonous dogs to slow their roll.” Sophie, Halpern’s Chihuahua, “rarely gags when she uses it because she has to think about how to extract the food, as opposed to just blindly gobbling.” For more puzzle bowls, check out our expert-recommended roundup.

$9 AT AMAZON
Highwave AutoDogMug

The staff of dog boutique and groomer Releash NYC loves the clever design of this hybrid water bottle and bowl for active dogs. One worker explains how ingenious it is: “Squeeze it, and water fills the bowl for your pup to drink; release your grip, and the remaining water returns to the bottle.”

$15 AT AMAZON
COMSUN Collapsible Dog Bowl, Pack of 2

These collapsible dog bowls, also recommended by Halpern, are helpful for a traveling pup. “We tuck them into our carry-on bags and keep one in the glove compartment of our car,” she says. “The durable silicone is lightweight, easy to clean, and won’t tip over in a moving vehicle.”

$10 AT AMAZON
Hyper Pet IQ Treat Mat, 2 Pack

Arden says that this set of licking mats is a great gift for hyperactive dogs for many of the same reasons as a snuffle mat. Spreading a soft treat like peanut butter over its surface “creates a fun game where the dog is kept busy licking at the mat,” she explains, adding that it’s a particularly great gift for dog owners whose dogs struggle with strangers and being alone. They’re “very useful for helping a dog to become more comfortable with handling and grooming, or for working on alone time skills,” says Arden.

Dog beds

Casper Memory-Foam Dog Bed

24. Casper Memory-Foam Dog Bed

From $113

“As Reggie gets older, I want him to have a more supportive bed,” explains Leimkuhler, which is why this memory-foam dog bed from Casper ranks high on her wish list.

The Casper bed also took the top spot in our roundup of the best dog beds because it’s easy to clean and has a streamlined design that provides excellent orthopedic support for older dogs with achy joints. Casper’s dog bed comes in three sizes and three colors: blue, gray, and sand.

Pendleton Yakima Camp Kuddler Bolster

Leimkuhler loves this bolster bed from Pendleton, which features the brand’s signature stripes and is sure to keep your dog cozy during colder months.

$200 AT WAYFAIR
Orvis ComfortFill-Eco Couch Dog Bed

“Every dog deserves a warm, snuggly, supportive bed,” Camerini says, explaining that her favorite is this one from Orvis, which makes for a thoughtful gift because (for an extra $12) you can personalized it with the dog’s name.

Camerini also appreciates that the design is “appropriate for every stage of a dog’s life,” and that the fabric is “durable and machine washable,” enabling it to last through the years.

FROM $189 AT ORVIS

Best Friends by Sheri Luxury Shag Faux Fur Donut Cuddler

For a less-expensive dog bed, we love this shag number. It is owned by no less than four Strategist dog parents, has more than 1,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, and is perfect for little dogs who love to cuddle and burrow.

Archie & Oscar Beatrice Bernice Quilted Orthopedic Bolster

Strategist associate director of e-commerce, Kiki Reginato, recently bought this affordable, sofa-style bed (which has orthopedic foam to cushion joints) for her growing Labrador mix, Rusty. “He is a big fan,” she says, as is Reginato, who appreciates its machine-washable cover and how the bed is just heavy enough that Rusty can’t “pick it up and throw it all over the house.”

Dog-grooming supplies

Warren London Polish Pen Bundle - French Manicure

“Nail polish from Warren London is a great gift for someone who wants to do a quick-drying, easy paw-dicure on their pups,” says Jess Rona, a dog-grooming expert based in Los Angeles.

Iv San Bernard Mineral Red Derma Complex Shampoo

If doggy nail polish is too flashy, Rona has some recommendations for more straightforward dog-grooming gifts to keep your pet clean: “For a luxury shampoo and conditioner, I recommend the Mineral Red or argan shampoo and conditioner by Iv San Bernard.” According to the manufacturer’s website, Mineral Red is better for dogs with allergies or dry skin, while the Black Passion, which has argan oil and seaweed, is suitable for any coat type.

Iv San Bernard H270 2-Phase Equalizer

For professionally groomed dogs whose owners are looking for a way to keep their doggy’s ’do looking sharp between appointments, “the Atami H270 Vitamin Spray by Iv San Bernard is great for an in-between-grooming hydration spray,” Rona says.

FROM $23 AT IV SAN BERNARD
Aesop Animal Wash

This animal wash from Aesop is a great gift for making bath time more luxurious, according to Leimkuhler. “I bought it to use on Reggie. It lathers easily, rinses away easily, and he does smell really good,” she says. “He smells like a status dog.”

[Editor’s note: This animal wash is on back order, but you can order it from either retailer below and it will ship when it’s back in stock.]

Musher's Secret Paw Protection Natural Dog Wax

Musher’s Secret Paw Protection Natural Dog Wax

$15

“Someone at my local dog park told me about Mushers after we were talking about how neither of our dogs will tolerate snow boots, which is bad because our neighborhood is way too aggressive with the salt on the sidewalk,” explains Leimkuhler. You massage a little of the wax-based cream onto the pads of your dog’s paws, and it acts as a sealant against ice, salt, sand, and even hot pavement. “It seems like a perfect little stocking stuffer.”

$15 AT CHEWY

 

Dog clothes and accessories

Wingman Leather Jacket

Cool dog parents will surely love to receive this leather jacket recommended by Logan Mikhly, a co-founder of the off-leash dog café Boris & Horton, which will give their pups a dash of James Dean style. “We can’t keep it in stock,” Mikhly says, because the coat “looks good on many different body types” and is “very warm and comfortable.”

$35 AT FUZZYARD
Christian Cowan X Max-Bone Jumper

If the dog you’re shopping for is more diva than biker, this fluffy sweater makes a great gift. “This is my dream dog sweater,” says Risa Miyamoto, a makeup artist and dog mom to a Pomeranian named Mokutan. She loves how extravagant this feathered sweater is and how it and the baby-blue version remind her of Sanrio’s Little Twin Stars.

$95 AT MAX BONE
The Worthy Dog Check Bow Tie

To really play up an old-Hollywood style, complete the look with a jaunty accessory. “I love a bow tie from the Worthy Dog that can clip on to their collar,” says Rona.

Canine Styles Barn Coat

Sturino recommends the barn coat from Canine Styles “if you want your dogs to look like they have more money than you do.”

Novack says that her “short coated dog starts shaking if it hits 40.” For eight years now, she’s relied on this jacket (which requires placing a custom order with the lucky dog’s exact measurements) to warm him through the winter. In the years since she bought it, Novack says she’s “never seen a coat that fits better, or that so many dogs have no problems putting on,” explaining that “doggos don’t need to step into this — the coat simply goes over the head.” For these reasons, she’s continually “gifted this coat to friends, and now they all swear by it.”

FROM $132 AT K9 APPAREL
wagwear WagWellies

For dogs that will tolerate footwear, Arden says that these handsome twists on your classic Wellington boots are as functional as they are fun-looking. “They’re really easy to put on, supportive, and comfortable for the dog,” she explains. The boots come in five colors (shown above), and the price includes four boots for your four-legged recipient.

$49 AT WAGWEAR
Charlie's Backyard Backpack

Mikhly sells these dog backpacks from Charlie’s Backyard and tells us that customers will first try them on just because they’re adorable, but “many end up using them to carry poop bags, keys, and phones” on walks and trips to the dog park. Plus, the backpack “is the type of item that just makes you smile,” he says. It’s designed to be worn like a harness, and there’s a place on the back to clip a leash.

$36 AT DOG & CO.
L.L.Bean Wicked Plush Throw

“The best gift I’ve ever received as a dog lover was from my mom for my oldest dog, Buster,” says Fraser. It’s “a cozy, personalized blanket embroidered with his name on it,” which she notes is something both dog and owner can use. “He loves having comfy blankets around to snuggle, and I love knowing that it’s a keepsake I’ll have for years and years to come.” Leimkuhler seconds her recommendation, saying “it’s nice to have a blanket you can share that’s easy to wash.” We have recommended this L.L. Bean plush blanket before: It’s soft, durable, and can be personalized.

Dog leashes, collars, harnesses, and carriers

Found My Animal Adjustable Ombré Rope Dog Leash, 7 Ft.

For a nice-looking leash that is also quite functional, Annie Grossman, the owner and co-founder of School for the Dogs and Store for the Dogs, likes this ombré-dyed one from Found My Animal. The carabiner-style clasp can be attached to your dog in two places — collar and harness — for added safety. Plus, the leash, which is made from marine-grade rope, is strong enough to stand up to big dogs and adjustable, so you can sling it over your shoulder or wear it around your waist if your hands are full.

Perhaps you’ve seen this slightly more glamorous leash attached to the collar of Boobie Billie, the tiny Italian greyhound–Chihuahua mix with more than 200,000 followers on Instagram.

Plus, Chaco takes customization seriously: There are more than 80 patterns to choose from. You can also embroider your pet’s name in 30 different colors, as well as select the buckle and stitching colors so you can be sure your dog’s accessories are unique.

Nice Beast Costa Mesa Dog Collar

Rachel Jones, the owner of streetwear-inspired dog-gear brand Trill Paws, says these collars from Nice Beast are her go-to gifts for dog owners. “They are so vibrant and are always a fun talking point among dog lovers.” The brand is one of those talking points: “The products are all fabricated by indigenous women in small communities of Chiapas, Mexico, and each piece takes between two and three days to make from braiding to assembly,” Jones explains.

Softouch The Original SENSE-ation No-Pull Dog Training Harness

$23

Perry likes this harness from Softouch Concepts as a gift for dog owners who are teaching their pups to stop pulling on the leash. “This harness is both humane and effective,” she says. “From my experience working with this equipment, I find it reduces dogs’ ability to pull on the leash by at least half.”

$23 AT AMAZON
PetSafe Come With Me Kitty Nylon Cat Harness & Leash

This (slightly more affordable) harness may be designed for cats, but Corsillo says it’s the best one she’s found for comfortably securing her (cat-size) poodle, Uli. “Almost all the dog harnesses we tried in her size (extra small or extra-extra small) were made of thick material better suited for a more muscular dog.” But this lighter model, she explains, offers a perfect fit, allowing Uli to comfortably wear it without any pinching or coughing fits.

Noxgear LightHound LED Illuminated & Reflective Dog Harness

$50

A friend of mine used to be a raver,” Novack tells us, “So when I saw this harness, I had to get it; not only does it turn on, it glows and pulses.” She adds that owners can choose what color the harness displays or “have the harness cycle through all the colors” it can turn.

The product is so good, according to Novack, it literally changed her life as a dog parent. “We used to get up at 6 a.m. on weekend mornings for an off-leash time in Central Park, but after buying this, we realized that we could instead grab dinner outside at one of our favorite restaurants near the park and then take a walk after.

Thanks to the LED harness, we can see our dog as he runs free at night.”

Wagwear Boat Canvas Carrier - Various Colors

If you want a slightly more stylish — but still functional — carrier, we suggest this canvas option from Wagwear that took top place in Corsillo’s status-dog-bag post.

Shark Rocket HV302 Ultra-Light Upright Vacuum

This vacuum took the title of best less-expensive vacuum for heavy shedders when we spoke to a bunch of dog owners and groomers about vacuums for pets. Tiziana Agnello, the founder of LoveThyBeast, loves it so much that she bought five of them — a few for the company’s three store locations and a couple for her home. She told us she prefers it over the more expensive Dyson cordless vacuums. “It’s the perfect industrial vacuum despite being so lightweight,” she adds.

Embark Dog DNA Test

For another gift that’s more for owner than pup, Leimkuhler’s top pick is a DNA test, which she says she would love to gift to any friend who has adopted a rescue dog. Knowing what breed or breeds your dog is can theoretically help you keep an eye out for health issues or concerns that those breeds typically deal with. “I also just want to know what he is, so I can answer dog-park inquiries and come up with a suitable portmanteau,” she adds of testing Reggie’s DNA. Embark will test your dog’s saliva and screen for more than 250 breeds using a database platform developed with Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. The company will also create a family tree for your dog and connect you to dogs with similar breed breakdowns.

For the human who loves their dog but can’t stand wet-dog smell, Adelson recommends this funny-looking candle she discovered at her vet’s office that made the place smell like an Italian apricot orchard. “It works not by filling the air with a new scent to overpower the stink,” she says, “but by releasing a blend of natural enzymes — the titular ‘exterminator’ — that breaks down airborne animal odors at a molecular level.”

If the dog parent is the self-help type, Sonia Nathan, the owner of Sonia’s Pet Grooming, recommends The Other End of the Leash by Patricia M. McConnell. “Better than any other writer, McConnell helps us appreciate that our relationships with our dogs are enriched by an understanding of ourselves — knowing how we differ from dogs and how we are comparable. It’s more than a how-to book. It’s a ‘why-to’ book: why we behave in certain ways around dogs and why understanding that will help us engage in a more gratifying manner.”
