This Christmas, shop for your smallest companions. Whether you are shopping for your dog or someone else’s dog, a gift is a great way to show a pet that you care during the holiday season. Buy with the dog’s size in mind. Small dogs enjoy being close to their owners, and they can be very energetic. Check out some of the best items that I spotted, while scouring the internet for gifts small dogs will enjoy.

Gifts for Small Dogs


Since small dogs love being with their owners, buy a carrier that the owner and the pet will enjoy. For a rock star look, buy the Super Star pet tote bag from Lazy Bonezz. The neutral color and simple design will go well with the owner’s style. Traveling will be much more fun in style. I really liked the material, which feels sturdy and high quality. Made out of a vegan leather, the runway-inspired bag is animal friendly too!

For a fun look, A Pet with Paws is another company that sells pet carriers. You can buy the tote bags in bright pink or vibrant blue. I tried out a pink tote, and I liked how eco-friendly the bag was. You can even get small backpacks made for dogs! If your dog is large enough to be comfortable wearing a backpack, it’s a cute way to make sure dogs always have their supplies. With a dog backpack, you don’t have to carry a large carrier to always be prepared.

Water Bowl

Pamper your pet with high quality water. Heyrex makes a water bowl with replaceable carbon filters, available on Amazon in 1 liter for small dogs and 2 liters for large dogs. Provide your pooch with the best tasting, clean water. I liked that the water bowls were very sturdy and just the right size for a small dog. This is a big step up from a regular water bowl.

Dog Toys

Another gift idea would be dog toys to entertain energetic dogs. I tried out the Dog Print Toy Basket by 1-800 Baskets, and I loved the variety of items. The squeaky duck toy was a huge hit, and my daughters loved rolling the ball to entertain the dog. Some doggie treats will make any pup happy. Plus, you get an awesome dog print basket to help you organize any dog toys that you already own.

    My little dog really loves those tiny Kong tennis balls that squeak. The last few Christmases, I’ve just wrapped up a whole bunch of them together! When she unwraps her present (with my help) and sees TEN brand new squeaky balls, her mind is BLOWN! I let her kick them all around for a while, and then I pick up most of them and save to dole out for whenever she’s in the mood for a new ball.

    These are all great ideas. My dog is a 9 pounder and could definitely use a new carrier.
