Black Friday I stayed home and compiled a “wish list” of Christmas pet gifts vs. “twilight” shopping with the rest of America.
I surfed the internet looking for unique and unusual items while the Boys continued to spend their holiday weekend sleeping off their homemade Turkey Loaf I made using a recipe from The Honest Kitchen…
Interesting enough the high tech interactive pet toys captured my attention the most. Every year there’s something new that makes me “almost” pull out my debit card #Isaidalmost
But most of what I’m attracted to comes with a hefty price tag.
But a Doodle Mom can dream right?
IF MONEY GREW ON TREES –
Here’s what I would place under our Christmas tree –
Enchanted Home Pet Library Sofa Pet Bed…
Imagine, a couch similar to the one I rarely get to sit on made especially for them!
Now this dog engaging treat machine intrigues me. Reminds me of those interactive light and music games I used to play with my kids when they were younger. Using the clever pattern, the Boys would learn how to press any button on the machine and then get rewarded with a treat. After they mastered that, CleverPet would light up certain buttons and only dish up a treat when their paws pressed the correct button. Harley would be entertained for hours. You can even stay connected with your dog when you’re out of the house with this toy!
This would be on the top of my Christmas list for both Harley & Jaxson! Should I receive a check in the mail that I wasn’t expecting, I would buy this in a Charleston minute! It’s a toy, it’s a bone, it’s a treat dispenser! #Doodleheaven.
A smart toy I fill with treats that will play with them with a single tap. It can even connect to my smartphone so I can control the toy remotely. Like from my home office #YoSanta #twoplease
Mental stimulation with treat rewards, the pawfect combination in a toy.
A dog activity and sleep monitor to give me insight for better health decisions. A revolutionary health monitor and wellness management system for every stage of my dogs life. It has the capacity to gather vital health information in addition to tracking resting heart and respiratory rates, with key indicators to help detect conditions early. #sweet
PetSafe Automatic Ball Launcher…
Fully automated, complete with built in sensors, and safety features. Each time the ball is launched (8-30 ft range), Jaxson could run after it. My job? To teach him how to drop the retrieved ball back into the top so it will launch again. Nine different distance settings as well as six angle settings with15 minute rest feature. Can you say #tireddoodle
iFetch Too Interactive Ball Thrower…
Another ball launcher but this is supposed to be better for “large dogs.” Uses standard sized tennis balls, has options to travel 10, 25, or 40 feet distances. Comes with three balls.
Petzi Treat Cam..
An app controlled, wifi connected device that would allow me to see (video) speak (audio) capture photos (snap) and give treats remotely using any internet enabled smart device. Although the Boys are rarely home “alone” – when they are, I think this would be fun for both of us!
BUT BECAUSE IT DOESN’T –
Grow on trees – money that is. Here’s my Christmas reality –
K9 Kannon Ball Launcher…
This could be the secret weapon I’ve been looking for to tucker them out. It’s a blessing to live surrounded by parks and open fields here in Charleston. There are plenty of places I could test this baby. This thing shoots balls up to 100 feet and has a convenient hands free pickup feature. No more two fingers grabbing that drool-drenched and dirt covered ball. I also like that it comes with extra ball storage, remember – I’ve got two Dood’s to exhaust.
Acadia Antlers are a long lasting chew that dogs will not chew through. They just grind down. Great for tarter and plaque and denser than deer or elk. They last forever!
Acadia Antlers are just CALCIUM making them perfect chews for dogs with allergies.
Harley and Leo had them for years, now it’s Jaxson’s turn. So this Christmas he gets his first Acadia Antler! A gift even Jaxson can’t destroy!
So, that’s my “wish list!” Do you have one?
Cyber Monday – the one time of year we look forward to Monday ❤️
