PetFirst lists top gifts for dogs and cats this December

"For the large-breeds chewer, standard dog bones and chew toys just don't hold up."

The season for thankfulness and giving has arrived, and for many pet parents the family dog or cat has a stocking hung over the mantle too. Holiday shopping can get overwhelming—especially when it comes to pets. Because cats or dogs cannot tell their pet parents what they want for the holidays, PetFirst has rounded up a list of the top five gifts to give to furry loyal companions this season.

1. Elk Antlers: For the large-breed chewer, standard dog bones and chew toys just don’t hold up. Elk Antlers last longer, with many reviews raving about how they don’t stain carpets or contain dyes. Additionally, the antler contains vitamins and minerals that help boost dog health. While these chewing toys can be pricey (about $20 for a large whole antler), they hold up longer than other varieties of bones or antlers—such as deer antlers.

2. Kong Classic: This rubber toy has been around for more than thirty years, and continues to be a tried and true favorite for canine counterparts. The Kong classic is available in multiple sizes, so no matter the breed, there is a perfect size available. One of the greatest features about the Kong toy is that it can be filled with treats or peanut butter, keeping dogs entertained for hours. The Kong ranges in price from $8-$25.

3. Catit Design Senses Speed Circuit: This toy designed for felines features a light-up ball that zooms around an elevated track with peek-a-boo holes for the cat to see, chase and swat at the ball. The track can be laid out in multiple ways, and this variety keeps cats engaged and entertained. The Catit Design Senses Speed Circuit has a list price around $26.

4. The iFetch: Does the family dog want to play fetch at all hours of the day? This toy may be just the right choice. The iFetch comes with special size tennis balls and has a port for the dog to drop the ball. Once the ball is dropped in, the machine “throws” the ball for the dog to go fetch. According to reviews, training dogs to drop the ball in the port is incredibly easy. This product has a steep price tag of $100, and is currently only available in a size fit for small breed dogs. Good news for those with larger pets, according to their website, a larger version is in the works.

5. Neko Flies Sleeping Bag: This cat-friendly product is great for cats who love to burrow. Featuring a structured entry so the cat never feels stuck, soft sleeping material and a “crunching paper” sound cats love, this toy is a dream-come-true for felines and can be picked up for about $35. The toy is a one-size-fits-most, being large enough for the average size adult cat.

There are countless toy and treat options on the market for canines and felines alike, and while many of these toys offer incredible fun and entertainment, we know pets are most grateful for the love, care and affection provided by great pet parents. Happy holidays from PetFirst.
