3. OllyDog Goodie Treat Bag

Bringing along their favorite treats is a great way to keep them engaged, work on their training, and reward them for good behavior. The OllyDog Goodie Treat Bag is a great hands-free way to carry your dog’s favorite treats and other essentials.

4. Sweet Treats From Three Dog Bakery
If you want to gift your dog something truly decadent, Three Dog Bakery has you covered with chef-created, small-batch, gourmet dog treats. Three Dog Bakery is known as the “world’s first bakery for dogs.” It began out of love for a rescue pup with a sensitive stomach and blossomed into a franchise with multiple locations.
From freshly baked treats with adorable names like “Pupcakes,” “Peanut Mutter Cups,” and “Woofie Pies” to prepackaged “PB&J Bites,” “Banana Woofers,” or “Itty Bitty Bones” (perfect to fit in your Goodie Treat Bag!). You’ll be sure to find something special for your pup at this unique dog bakery.
You can fill your dog’s stocking with these tail-wagging, drool-worthy treats from a local Three Dog Bakery near you or their online store. Select treats are also available from major pet product retailers such as Chewy.
Don’t forget to put your pup’s stocking up high. They’ll be sure to sniff out these sweet treats and may take it upon themselves to indulge a little early!
5. Upcycled Rope Toy From ReRope
Does your dog love a good game of tug? An upcycled rope toy from ReRope can make the perfect stocking stuffer for them! ReRope toys are handmade in Des Moines, Iowa, from upcycled textiles woven into durable dog toys.
Your dog can have hours of fun with their new rope toy, and you’ll be pleased to know their toy is eco-friendly and supportive of a small business!
ReRope dog toys are available through their website. They come in a plethora of colors (including holiday colors), sizes, and styles of knots to choose from. Some of ReRope’s toys also include recycled tennis balls–another favorite of our four-legged friends!
Spreading Holiday Cheer Safely
No matter which stocking stuffer you choose, your dog will surely be in the holiday spirit with these new fun toys and treats. Remember to keep your cheerful pup safe and supervise playtime with toys. If your dog has a little too much fun and breaks their toys, they can become a choking hazard or cause a blockage if swallowed.
Also, remember that stomach issues can occur with overindulgence in special foods. If gifting your dog some special treats, don’t let them have too much at once. Just as humans can sometimes overindulge during the holidays and pay the consequences (hello, heartburn!), so can our dogs. Nothing spoils the holiday fun like a tummy ache or an emergency trip to the vet!
Have a happy and safe paw-liday season!
