Traditionally, the holiday season is a time to mingle indoors. Holiday brunches, fireplaces, and Christmas dinners are just a few activities that beckon us inside. But that's the perfect reason to remember that your pup needs ample time outdoors! Rather than grazing around the holiday dinner table, your dog should be walking, snowshoeing, or skiing right alongside you during these brisk winter months.
That is why we decided to create a list of our favorite outdoor-inspired gifts for dogs and dog owners. They will have anticipating day break and getting you and your dog outside where you belong!
Best Outdoor-Inspired Gifts for Dog Owners
1. Donation to Trail or Park Programs in the Dog's Name.
For an incredibly unique and thoughtful gift, why not donate to charity in your or your loved one's dog's name? You can donate to canine programs, The Humane Society, or better yet...off-leash parks in the area or trail organizations. If you frequent the local swim holes, trails, or dog parks, why not give a little back to those places that have brought so much joy to you and your dog?
2. Clip-On Dog Light.
Any active outdoor dog owner doesn't let low light get in the way of their jog, hike, or walk. With a huge variety of low-priced dog lights on the market, this makes the perfect stocking stuffer for the outdoorsman's dog! Just turn on and head out, no matter what time of morning or night!
Outdoor dogs know: adventure could be lurking around any corner. Dogs and active humans don't want to be restricted to an adventure because they forgot to bring a leash with them. With the Rad Dog Release 'N Run, the leash is ready whenever your dog is! That's because the leash winds neatly inside the dogs collar, accessible instantly with a pull of the handle!
4. A Good Pair of Gloves.
There's no such things as pockets for active dog owners! Even if you are able to find an off-leash trail to run, ski, hike, or snowshoe, there's no chance you'll be able to tuck those hands away while making a mad dash through the wilderness! That's why a good set of gloves can never be overrated--for active dog owners and just plain active outdoorsmen alike!
5. Dog Waste Bags.
Because no one ever saw a dog use a port-a-potty! Waste bags are a necessary evil. We must keep our trails and outdoor spaces clean by picking up after our dogs, and as any good dog owner will tell you: you can never have too many doggie waste bags! Splurge this Christmas and buy your dog or fellow dog owner some Rad Dog Waste Bags
. They are made from recycled plant starch, so you can reduce environmental pollutants caused by dog waste while also reducing your carbon paw print!
