How to Choose a Christmas Present for Dogs in the UK - Buying Guide

There are some really lovely present options out there for your dog this Christmas. That's why this guide is dedicated to helping you find the pup-timum present for your fur-ever friend. By thinking about your dog's needs, temperament and favourite things, we hope to make your decision much easier. 

Opt for a Present that Suits Your Dog's Personality and Favourite Things

First things first; what type of gift do you think would bring your pet the most happiness? You are the one who knows your dog best, so by thinking about the size, breed and temperament of your dog you'll already have a rrruff idea of the gift genre that will please them the most. 

For the Pampered Pooch, Choose Grooming Treats or a Cosy New Bed

For the Pampered Pooch, Choose Grooming Treats or a Cosy New Bed

If you have a lapdog who revels in an opulent lifestyle, look out for Christmas gifts that provide opportunities for pampering or allow laid-back luxury for your deserving doggo. Things like bouncy new beds, tools for grooming or bath-time products will make your spoiled pet feel like the royalty they truly are. 


Pampering presents are also great for newly adopted rescue dogs, who need some extra TLC to help them settle in. Nervous dogs can benefit from calming scents and warm, reassuring beds, so think about presenting your hound with one such gift to show them they're safe with you for life, not just for Christmas. 

For Hungry Hounds, Find Festive Food, Drink and Treats

For Hungry Hounds, Find Festive Food, Drink and Treats

For bon-vivant bulldogs and gourmande golden retrievers, we reckon food and treats have got to be the number one gift at Christmas! Dogs of all shapes and sizes just love to snack, and we think a healthful, hearty meal or tempting tidbit says 'Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal' like nothing else.


Look out for brands which are made in the UK and use whole-food ingredients. High-quality foods with added nutrients mean your pooch will be left with gleaming fur, strong claws and a calm tummy every time they tuck in. Lots of pet food brands have produced specially themed Christmas meals for dogs, or novelty pet drinks like alcohol-free 'beers' and 'wines'. 


Another way to reward your hot-diggety dog is with moreish long-lasting chews. These are great for calming down excitable puppies and soothing anxious dogs who may become worried by the high turnover of guests around Christmas. Anything to stop them knocking over the tree, basically. 

For Playful Pups, Pick a Cheerful Toy or Brain Training Puzzle

For Playful Pups, Pick a Cheerful Toy or Brain Training Puzzle

Next on our list of yuletide pet presents is a toy or game. These bring your dog happiness and give them a chance to let off steam. Squeaky toys are pleasing to dogs since the high-pitched noise is believed to spark a dog's lupine predatory instinct. This means they feel they've fulfilled their ancient hunting destiny, when they're actually chewing a polyester pheasant. 


Toys can be used as part of indoor games and often become a firm favourite that comforts your dog and joins in endless games of fetch. Puzzles are brilliant for stimulating your pooch's brain – don't forget these guys are about as clever as a human two-year-old – and can provide some much-needed entertainment. Snuffle games, where you scatter hidden treats, satisfy dogs natural instinct to forage for food.

Consider Whether Your Gift Is More Pleasing to Pets or Their Owners

Consider Whether Your Gift Is More Pleasing to Pets or Their Owners

While selecting a gift for the labrador in your life, we advise keeping in mind whether the present is really for the dog or the owner. Obviously dogs don't really know it's Christmas (wow, that hurts to type) but some presents will actually bring them happiness while others barely register. 


Novelty treats like beer for dogs or a fancy new bowl are wonderful, thoughtful gifts, and will boost the mood of humans with a delight that naturally rubs off on their pup. But these gimmicks don't set a hound's heart racing the way a toy or sumptuous dog's dinner would! 

Gorgeous Gifts Can Be Bargains Too

Gorgeous Gifts Can Be Bargains Too

Lastly, a reminder that you don't have to spend a fortune on your dog - Christmas is costly enough already! For this article, we have made sure to find floof-friendly Christmas presents suited to a range of wallets. 


By seeking out presents for budgets of £5, £10, £15, £20, £25 and under, we've included something affordable for every household. In fact, the most expensive item on our doggie Christmas list costs just under £40.

Top 10 Best Christmas Presents for Dogs in the UK

Now it's time to count down the top 10 Christmas gifts for puppers we could find online. We're sure no matter what you pick, your dog will thank you with their waggiest tail and brightest smile. You'll recognise some well-loved pet brands in there, like Wild and Woofy, Rosewood and Woof and Brew!
