Many of us spend a lot of our time baking and making treats for our friends and loved ones or shopping for them during the holiday season. How about this year we do this for more than just friends or family? I’m ready to make 2021 the year to include treats and gifts for our dogs in our holiday treat making. I mean, if your dogs are anything like mine, they are probably watching you baking treats anyway so why not include them in it? They deserve it!
I don’t know about you, but I love to include my dogs in the holidays and I know that they love it too! From the yummy holiday treats that I know that they love to the gifts that they get to play with, these dogs love the holidays. If you want to make sure your dogs love the holidays too, check out this holiday treat and gift roundup for dogs.

Holiday treat and gift roundup for dogs
It’s been a very long year and a half. Many of us have fallen out of touch with friends and family and some of us have socialized very little. While the world has been changing around us, one thing has stayed the same. Our dogs and their loyalty.
More than ever we have needed our best friends by our sides to snuggle with, to cry to and to just be ourselves around with no worries of judgment! Seriously. Did you know that you can eat an entire carton of ice cream and your dog won’t even give you the side eye? Does it get any better than that? Since our dogs have put up with so much out of us lately, I say that they deserve to be rewarded! This holiday treat and gift roundup for dogs should be a great resource for you to find how to reward them this holiday season.
