Top 18 Christmas Gifts for Dog Lovers in 2019

Do you know someone who loves dogs more than people? Do you find it hard to find a unique Christmas gift for the dog lover in your life? 

Whether they're into the latest pet tech gadgets, love the great outdoors, a budding designer or would prefer to receive a gift that helps animal welfare, we have lots of suggestions in our 2019 Christmas Gift Guide for Dog Lovers.

Animo, the behaviour monitor that tracks every bark, scratch, shake or itch of your dog, and is the perfect present for your pooch and you, this Christmas.
Plus, Animo will last far longer than Christmas day. It’s designed to stay with your dog for its entire lifetime, monitoring and reporting changes in your pet's day-to-day activity and behaviour patterns as they grow older.

Used with the Sure Petcare Animo app, Animo can track how long your dog has been active for each day, records when your dog last exercised, how many calories are burnt and how well your dog sleeps each night.

It can also help you notice significant changes in behaviour such as barking, scratching and shaking, which could be an indication of ill health or distress.

Lightweight and durable, Animo is a collar mounted device with a 6-month battery life (one coin cell battery included) and waterproof with an IP67 rating, so it's ideal for dogs who like to swim or roll in the mud.

Pet massage might sound like a luxury for pampered pooches only, however there are many health benefits too! Massage stimulates the body’s nerves, muscles, circulatory system and lymphatic system. It enhances range of motion, increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells and helps relieve muscle pain.

The Petssager is also a great grooming brush that will shed, shampoo, slick, shine and massage all areas of the body. It will gently remove loose hair, dirt and dander while adding shine to your dog’s coat.

Available in 3 colours, it comes with a one year manufacturer's warranty.
