Your pet wants you to read our newsletter. (Then give them a treat.)

Holidays are that wonderful, draining, family-filled time of year. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, or something new TikTok started, you’ll likely be spending the next few weeks eating, drinking, or watching Hallmark movies to distract your body and mind from all the holiday (Grinch voice) cheer. You’ll also likely have to endure that moment the grocery store sneaks in “Christmas Shoes” on their holiday playlist and you find yourself sobbing in the baking aisle.

At least we can always count on our dogs to keep us company (and sane) during these traditions. With that in mind, it’s important to show them we appreciate their unfaltering cuteness, love, and inability to find conspiracy theory links on Facebook (looking at you, uncles at the dinner table). So naturally, we gathered a few gifts to help you adequately spoil your pup this year.

Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)

As an aging punk, I certainly understand the appeal of a good jacket patch. But instead of flashing logos for bands that mostly broke up before I was born, these are a bit more personal and a lot less intense. But I’m sure if my dog were to start writing fast-paced anthems, “Will Sit for Snacks” and “Been There, Peed on That” would be pretty high up on their song list.
