Holiday Gift Guide for the Pet Lover

December is here and that means the holidays are upon us!  You may need some help when it comes to gifting your loved ones some thoughtful and unique gifts. Here at Shackleford Road Veterinary Clinic, we love supporting local retailers and artists! We have pulled together a fun gift guide filled with animal themed gifts perfect for any animal lover in your life- or you! We won’t tell if you add a gift for yourself under the tree!

Treats, Toys, and Games

Box Turtle is an adorable boutique that stocks a selection of cheeky plush dog toys available in an array of sizes and style. Our favorite might be the “Woof Clicquot Champagne Bottle” and the “LickCroix Barkling Water”. How cute would all of these stuffed toys be in your pet’s toy basket?

We declare puzzles the ultimate comeback of the year! “Dogs with Jobs” 500 piece puzzle will help pass the chilly temps of these cold winter months. If reading is more your style, WordsWorth Books will most definitely have something in your genre. They stock thousands of titles, with some of our pics being:

Local dog treat shop, Just Dogs Gourmet, has a wide selection of festive dog treats including custom options. They have a “Frequent Barkers Club” that gives members access to exclusive discounts and promotions. Find their shop in the Chenal Promenade or online.

Practical Gifts

A new sturdy dog leash is always appreciated and Domestic Domestic has one that is uber useful!  Perusing their shelves online and in person at their Heights location, you will find many practical gift options for the pet lover in your family including this sturdy 6 foot dog leash that has a carabiner clip and is made from recycled polyester. Their store specializes in stocking items crafted in the USA which is an added bonus!

The year 2020 is almost over, (and the crowd sighed with relief), time to get your 2021 wall calendar! There is no better option than the Humane Society of Pulaski County’s rescue pet calendar which helps fund their efforts. Meet some of the year’s rescue pets and support this local shelter with this great gift option!

Custom Gift Options

Hand stamped custom pet hang tags are the perfect gift that identifies your pet’s name in style while also giving back to the community! Bang Up Betty offers tags that include name, address, and phone number. Each hang tag ordered provides a donation to Out of the Woods Animal Rescue.

For the pet owner who has everything, enter pet portraits! Mariposa Studio is a local photographer with extensive experience in family and pet photography. Don’t worry about your pet “behaving”, the studio touts that the best photography comes from capturing the true nature and mischievousness of your pet. If you’d rather have an abstract or bright depiction of your pet, Amber Taylor does beautiful watercolor pet paintings ready to frame and is offering custom ornaments painted with your pet, perfect for gifting!

Happy gifting and we hope you all have a wonderful December!
