dog in christmas tree

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and the very best part? Opening presents, of course! But Christmas gifts are not just for the two-legged members of the family. Since our furry best friends are good boys and girls all year round, they certainly deserve a spot on Santa’s Nice list. Treat the whole family to amazing pet-friendly cabins in Branson, MO, and surprise your pooch with one or two – even all – of these gifts!

6 DOG-APPROVED HOLIDAY GIFT IDEAS

  1. Take Fido for a Christmas vacation in Branson

From terrific Christmas shows, light tours and train rides, hundreds of Christmas trees, and endless shopping, dining, and entertainment choices, Branson simply overflows with Christmas cheer.

Best of all, Branson has a soft spot for dogs. Take Fido on a quick hike and let him dive into mounds of snow and run around to his heart’s content. Sip some hot cocoa in an outdoor café and give your dog a treat or two while you watch the holiday displays. Take it slow cuddling around the fire in a pet-friendly cabin right here in Branson, MO.

Making Fido a part of your vacation is a lovely way to bond and make new memories together.

  1. Swap Out His Leash for a Harness

Make your walks even more enjoyable by gifting your dog with a brand-new harness! It’s a much safer and comfortable choice than a traditional leash, which strains the neck and can injure the trachea.

If your dog tends to pull or streak away after cars, birds, and other distractions, no-pull harnesses also offer greater peace of mind every time you go out the door.

Christmas time is filled with exciting stimuli that can make even the most well-behaved dog blast around like a rocket, so a harness will give you greater peace of mind.

  1. Indulge Your Dog in a Pet Salon

Our four-legged family members work so hard to make us happy all the time, and they deserve a break!

Schedule a pampering session for your dog in one of Branson’s pet salons. Have their nails trimmed, ears cleaned, fur groomed – the works! Once they’re done, take them shopping for a cute and cozy Christmas outfit in one of Branson’s hundreds of holiday shops.

  1. A Stuffed Squeaky Toy

If you know dogs, then you know they can’t have too many toys! Add a new stuffed squeaky toy or two to their stash to keep playtime exciting. Since dogs can see blue and yellows, consider getting toys in these colors to make them more engaging.

  1. Fill Up Christmas Stocking with Your Dog’s Name On it

What are your dog’s most favorite things in the world? Take a stocking and fill it up with fun and delicious dog-safe items such as:

  • Dog Christmas cookies
  • Yummy treats
  • Winter coats and sweaters
  • Snow shoes
  • Scarves
  • Anxiety wraps to keep them calm if things get too noisy
  • Kong toys
  • Nose and paw conditioners to protect against the cold
  • A new ball

Watch as your dog goes crazy trying to decide which stocking stuffer he wants to try first!

  1. Chase the Winter Blues with Interactive Toys

Winter is gorgeous, but sadly, it drastically reduces your dog’s time outdoors. Exercise your dog’s mind and body with interactive dog toys like:

  • Paw treat balls
  • Food dispensing toys
  • Automatic fetch toy
  • Dog puzzles
  • Hide and seek toys

Interactive toys offer hours of fun indoors so your pet won’t get bored, sad, and anxious even if the freezing weather doesn’t permit longer and more frequent walks.
