Best Dog and Cat Gifts of 2018

Your pets are a part of the family, so getting them a gift for the holidays is only fitting! Do they really need a heated bed or a monogrammed sweater? Not necessarily. But during this festive time of the year, your four-legged friends deserve the absolute best! Check out this gift guide to see our favorite gifts for your dog or cat.

Snuggly Heated Pet Bed

If you live somewhere that gets especially cold in the winter, or just want your furry friend to stay warm, this heated bed is perfect for them! This bed is at a comfortable temperature that is suited for your pet’s normal body temperature.

Dog DNA Test Kit

If you are curious about your mixed dog’s ancestry, there is a perfect solution for you! Similar to the DNA test kits for humans, the Embark test will tell you about your dogs’ ancestry, disease history, and even traits.

Reversible Hammock

Hammocks are the perfect vessel for the lazy cat that loves to lounge all day! With the adorable reversible pattern of leopard and white, you are sure to love it just as much as your cat.
