The Fairisle Large Knife Edge Dog Bed is a great fit for a Hazel-sized pooch. The classic print is a wintery and festive non-denominational option.
Petco has products to celebrate feline festivities too! Spruce up your cat’s sleep space with this Christmas tree cat bed!
Let’s move on from sleep to snack!
Darris mentioned WholeHearted dog treats as a year-round favourite of the pup’s in his household- specifically the training treats. Of course, because he’s a dog trainer! They are fantastic treats, but Petco has some more festive WholeHearted dog treat alternatives for the season.
How about leaving milk and cookies out for your dog, instead of Santa Claus? Maybe not the milk… This is not an endorsement for giving dogs milk. Stick with water. But WholeHearted has you covered in the cookie department with their Chip Cookie Treats. You may as well leave dog-safe cookies out for your pup because your dog will probably attempt to sneak a snack from the table anyway. Unless you have success using one of Darris’ training methods…
My Spanish family says Feliz Navidad, and your dog can say it too- while chewing on a WholeHearted Churro-style dog teat.
Advent calendars for dogs allow you to celebrate with your dog every day in December. The More and Merrier Assorted Dog Chew Advent Calendar was featured in the collection of holiday dog products Darris had on display during our interview.
If you have a dog with food allergies or dietary restrictions Petco has you covered. The More and Merrier Advent Treat Holder is designed for you to use your own treats in the advent calendar. The bonus about this one is you can reuse it every holiday season!
Darris recommended providing your dog with a treat ball or puzzle toy to keep busy during holiday mealtime. Hazel loves her puzzle toys! The Reddy Cherry Geo Treat Ball will keep your pup busy while your family enjoys a delicious dinner. The best part about this ball is that it’s made from recycled materials! It comes in assorted sizes, colours, and is durable enough for a tough chewer.
The elaborate puzzle toy featured in the video interview with Darris is the More and Merrier Holiday Puzzle Toy. It has a festive holiday design, featuring flip and slide compartments to discover hidden treats. It’s sure to fill your pet with the spirit of Christmas- and snacks!
Thanks to Darris, I’m now obsessed with the holiday toys at Petco showcased during our interview. I especially like the inclusivity of holiday toys- both the inclusion of different holidays and the non-denominational selection. Let’s start by digging into Santa’s gift bag!
Darris mentioned plush toys as a holiday doggy gift option. I love plus dog toys because they are adorable and aesthetically pleasing. Hazel loves them because she can decapitate them, rip their innards out and spread them all over the floor. An adorable plush dog toy featured in the video is the More and Merrier Llama. I’m not sure why llamas are associated with Christmas, but I can’t deny that they’re super cute!
Another holiday plush toy featured in the video baffled me. The Christmas pickle. I had to Google it and from what I read about this dill-icious tradition, an ornamental of a pickle is placed on the Christmas tree. On Christmas morning, the first person to find the pickle on the tree would either receive an extra present from Santa Claus or have a year of good fortune, depending on your interpretation of the tradition. Petco has hidden a few Christmas Pickle plush dog toys in their holiday product line.
Ready for a Christmas chuckle? A HO-HO-Hilarious dog gift that’s shaken, not squeaked… actually it will definitely be squeaked. Fill your dog’s holiday cup with the More and Merrier Plush Beer Toy. Please squeak responsibly.

Has your dog been naughty or nice? With Hazel, it’s a mixed bag. But she has certainly earned a lump of coal a few times this year. Petco is being nice by not leaving out naughty dogs with the More and Merrier Plush “I Can Explain” Lump of Coal Toy. It’s good for a holiday laugh, and maybe some accountability…
Celebrate Hanukkah with the Petco festival of lights-inspired dog toys! The Hanukkah Rope Toy featured in our video interview is perfect for the playful pooch. Fetch and tug your way through the eight days of Hanukkah with this menorah-themed toy that reads “Happy Hanukkah.”
Bark your traditions loudly with the Hanukkah “Chewish” Bone Toy! This toy is sure to squeak and crackle throughout the eight days of Hanukkah.
In the spirit of inclusivity, Petco has decided that everyone gets a pickle! Look under your tree! You get a pickle! You get a pickle! Your dog gets a pickle! And if you celebrate Hanukkah, your dog gets a Kosher pickle! Your dog can chew on this dill-icious Kosher Pickle Toy under the glow of festive lights.
There’s no way Hazel and I can share all of our favourites, but here are a few honourable mentions that are a little on the quirky side.
You and your dog can have matching holiday pyjamas. I’m not making this up.
Or your dog can be super extra and wear an ugly doggy Christmas sweater, like this one.
Or maybe just festive hat and cape…
Or a holiday headband…
Even poop pick-up can be festive! Santa’s got a brand new bag!
Decorate the tree with a personalized ornament!
