The perfect gift for a constantly hungry dog

Reasons to avoid
-It's not super challenging for very clever dogs 

If your dog is constantly hungry and wolfs down meals in seconds, games like this are brilliant! Not only do they engage your dog in some mental exercise, they also make them eat slower – plus it's a great distraction for tearing down the Christmas tree. Simply fill up with treats and they have to work out how to move the disks to get them.

A cute Santa toy that's not just for Christmas

Specifications
RRP: £3
Suitable for puppies?: Yes
Reasons to buy
+Affordable+Satisfies chewing needs and bounces
Reasons to avoid
-IT SQUEAKS

These spikey balls have been a saviour for those in the Real Homes team who have puppies that are teething and want to chew everything. The spikes make it really satisfying for them to bite down on but the bounciness keeps it like a game – endless fun and much better than them having a go at your slipper.

If you want your dog to be the swankiest dog on your walks, they obviously need a Barbour harness darling. Maybe you even have a matching coat on your Christmas list?

They are durable, comfortable, and the best quality. There are loads of designs to choose from, including the classic wax jackets, but we couldn't resist this adorable quilted jacket.

Nawww, yes drinks for dogs are a little bit gimmicky but it's Christmas, treat them! This would be a great gift to bring along to your friend's and family's homes if they have dogs as a fun extra gift. It's all good stuff in there that your dog will love, and it apparently tastes like chicken – nice. You can pour it over their food to make their Christmas meal a little bit special too.

Make the potential nightmare that is giving your dog a bath a bit more bearable with this cute gift set. It looks lovely, but what is inside is also super practical – if you have a dog and are yet to own a glove drying towel (basically like a towel oven mitt) you need to get one, it's a game-changer. You also get a brush and a delicious smelling aloe vera and oatmeal shampoo.

10. Joules Printed Welly Boot Dog Toy

Stop them chewing your toys by getting them one of there own

Specifications
RRP: £8
Suitable for puppies?: Yes
Reasons to buy
+Long lasting dog toy+Funny toy to gift to friends and family
Reasons to avoid
-IT ALSO SQUEAKS

We all know dogs chew shoes, so why not buy them their own dedicated toy shoe to chew? They will probably like this one even more, because unfortunately for you, it squeaks too. You could even further tempt them away from your possessions by hiding a chew inside their welly toy. We think this would be great gift to give to your dog obsessed friend as a little extra Christmas gift this year.
