If you’re holiday shopping for a new dog owner, you may think that they already went buck wild and bought everything their new dog needs. The truth is, a lot of people who are first-time dog owners may not realize all of the little things they need to help keep their dog happy and healthy. Or, maybe this new dog owner has bought all of the basics for their new puppy, but they haven’t splurged on any fun new puppy accessories. This guide has great gifts for new dog owners, be they necessity or simply too fun to pass up.
If your new dog-owning friend got a puppy or dog that sheds, they may not have thought about all of the fur that will start collecting around the entire house. Give your friend a FURemover, which helps fur easily come off upholstery.
