This site does your last-minute shopping for you

The holidays are here, guys. With only a few more shopping days to get everything checked off your list, you might be starting to panic. Sometimes it’s hard to think of what to get someone. Especially if that person can’t tell you what they want. Especially if it’s your dog.

If you have a puppy (or two or three), you treat them like any other member of the family. They have every comfort you do. They also have their own stocking hung up waiting for Santa Paws to come.

Oops. You completely forgot to get your pet something other than a matching Christmas sweater. Not to worry; WildOne has a unique aggregator that can suggest some terrific last-minute gifts for your puppy so you two can stay best friends.

Essentials

When in doubt, go with the basics. If it’s been a bit since you’ve replaced things like bedding, food and water dishes, and a leash, the holidays are a good reason to get new ones.

This adorable kit comes with a supercomfy bed and two dog dishes that you can personalize for your pooch. We know your dog can’t read, but it’s still cute and it shows you care.

A great option is this walking kit that has a harness and leash with an attached poop bag holder. Everything you need to take your furry friend on his daily walks.

Snacktime

OK, we really can’t forget about treats and snacks. You love getting candy in your stocking, so be nice to your pup. Give him all the snacks.

If you want to give your puppy a variety of treats, this set is really nice. It has three different flavors, so your dog won’t get bored, and they are all organic, so you can indulge your dog without worrying about what you are giving him. Sounds like a win for everyone.

If your dog is more into a meaty treat, these chicken-tender slices are a must. Who doesn’t love chicken tenders? These nine-ingredient treats are sure to have your pup wagging his tail.

Treat yo’ dog-self

Who doesn’t like to be pampered? You do a face mask and chocolate. Give your pup a relaxing shampoo and a fruit salad treat. Dogs get stressed out, too. They might even need to decompress from time to time. Getting this cute set that has a conditioning shampoo, bolt bite, and an organic snack is just what your pet needs.

Other ideas

What else could you get your pup? Well, look at what your pup has. Do you see anything he doesn’t have yet? Are you planning on taking your dog on some trips? Then look into getting a carrier. Is your puppy bored of his old toys? Try a new one that you haven’t thought to get yet.

We hope there are enough ideas here to get you through this holiday with your pooch. One wag of the tail, and you’ll know you did good. But if there is something that you’ve always wanted to get your dog, or thought your dog might like but you weren’t really sure, now is the time. The holidays are all about buying things you wouldn’t normally. Just go for it. You’ll be sure to be rewarded with those big puppy eyes.

Snuggles and unconditional love were likely part of the reason you brought home your furry friend in the first place. You may have envisioned yourself scratching their ears and spending nights petting them after a long day at the office. You may not have expected that the bed you splurged on would be tossed aside in favor of your lap. You may wonder, "Why does my dog lay on me instead?"

Dog-human relationships are as sweet as they come, but a language barrier complicates them. Your pet can't answer this question for you, but we have some theories. The good news? Unlike other common dog behavioral questions, chances are, the reason your dog has chosen you as their favorite pillow is a positive (and sweet) one.

You may enjoy watching wolves howl at the moon on TV, but you probably don't like it when it comes to life in your own home. Sometimes, in the middle of the night, your dog will wake up and channel their inner Canis lupus (wolf). Both of you need sleep, so you might want to try to tamp this down with a little retraining.

Of course, the first step to fixing your noise problem is to figure out the underlying cause, which involves paying a bit more attention to exactly what your pup is doing and when. So, if you wonder, "Why is my dog howling at night?" we suggest you note a few factors.
