For the pup: Holiday Gift Guide 2010

If you ask the Dogtime team, shopping for our pets is the best part of the Holidays. So for happy hounds and merrier Terriers this season, check out our fa-la-la-la favorites for Fido.

Paw Pets – Puppets for dogs and cats!

Paw Pets are hand puppets for cats and dogs. That’s right, ultra durable and super soft puppets. Might sound strange, but what better way to interact with your pet? When tested out on on our panel members, these oh-so-cute puppets got a paws up. And after dressing Spot as a Fairy Dogmother for Halloween, donning a Paw Pet on the end of your arm is the least you could do, right?

Eco-Friendly Pet Beds by Kiss My Mutt

Choosing the right bed for your dog can be tricky. Some pets are picky and will only find comfort on certain types of materials. Some pet beds are noisy or the filling smells bad. Sometimes the beds are made of thin material which gives way to digging dogs. The Eco-Friendly Pet Beds by Kiss My Mutt seems to be the perfect bed. Not only are they durable and stylish but, the filling, which is made from recycled plastic bottles, is quiet, odorless and my dogs seem to find it quite cozy. Might I add that the covers of Eco-Friendly Pet Beds are also completely removeable AND machine washable!

Talk To Me Rubber Treat Ball With Treats

The Talk To Me Treat Ball is a treat filled toy for dogs that you can record & re-record a message for your pups to hear. The recorded message is motion activated so the more your pup plays the more he hears your voice. AND you can pack the treat ball full of your pups favorite treats so the more he plays the more treats he will get….a double plus!! The Talk To Me Treats (mint flavored) were a huge hit with our test pannel and seeing that they freshen your dog’s breath they were also a hit with the humans of our test panel.

Kids are able to use their creativity and build their own dog park and even design their own breed of dog.
