Gourmet Dog Treats
Pet owners who buy presents for their pets spend an average of $46 on their presents. Here are some popular trends this year in the world of dog gifts.
Listed in first place as the most common present, treats are a big hit this holiday season. As the organic trend grows, maybe pet owners are buying holiday-themed organic or all-natural dog treats, anything from bone-shaped dipped dog treats, doggy cupcakes topped with icing, to mini doggy cannoli with sprinkles, all made specifically for their digestive systems.
Twitter-related Dog Gifts
Purebred Breeders knows it may sound strange but many of the popular gifts this season are related to Twitter. By buying a dog tag with this functionality, you are able to know when your dog is barking and what he’s up to even when you’re not around. The collar will send you messages to your home computer as well as send you a tweet about what the dog is doing!
A very useful dog gift relating to Twitter this season is the Tweeting Dog Bowl, the bowl will send you a tweet when it needs to be replenished. This is good for pet owners that may be gone for the holidays and need to advise a neighbor as to when the dog’s bowl needs to be refilled.
