‘Tis the season for giving gifts, Springfield. We know you’re focusing on your shopping lists for your fellow homo sapiens at the moment. We decided not to make a local holiday gift guide this year because Greg Holman’s is so darn good
. We thought it’d be nice to give the pups some love by sharing 10 gift ideas for the dogs in your life. After all, our pets are part of what makes our homes so special!
from Unleashed Life
If you’ve got a little fancy lad or lass at home, why not show them a taste of the royal life with this classy dish set from Springfield’s own Unleashed Life? If this particular design doesn’t do it for you, don’t worry. They have tons of designer dog bowls to make your pup feel like the little king or queen they are!
from 417 Pet Sitting
If you’re a busy person, it can be tough to give your dog the attention he or she deserves. Managing schedules is hard and sometimes, you have to leave them at home for long periods with no one to snuggle! 417 Pet Sitting has a solution! They offer in-home sitting in 30-minute intervals. They’ll swing by, let your dog(s) out, make sure they’ve got enough food, give them a little TLC and hold them over until you can get home. It’s only $15-$20 too! If you’re gonna be gone overnight, they also have a service for that! For $50 per night, someone from 417 Pet Sitting will chill with your dog without having to kennel them! In your own house! It’s ok to pamper them sometimes!

at Fetch Pet Supplies and Gifts
Hey, don’t feed regular beer to your dogs. Not when there’s a brew made specifically for them! Fetch Pet Supplies in Springfield has plenty of it too! It’s a delicious, cold drink for dogs that is made from beef chicken or pork and mixed with amino acids and malt barley. It NEVER has any alcohol, carbonation or hops, s it’s completely safe for any dog. In fact, the ingredients can help promote healthy joints and bones! Throw one back with the pup this Christmas!
at Fetch Pet Supplies and Gifts
Another one from the folks at Fetch here. Typically you wouldn’t want to feed your dog just any ice cream. Lots of ice cream has ingredients that aren’t safe for dogs, but Puppy Scoops is made just for them! It comes as a mix that only requires a little water and a freezer. It’s made from whole milk, gelatin, salt, sugar, and peanuts. No additives or unhealthy stuff, just a frozen treat for your little buddies.
at All About Dogs & Cats
A good, cozy bed is an important part of making your dog feel at home. All About Dogs and Cats has plenty of really snuggly beds that are perfect for naps in the sun. They’ve also got a raw food bar, a pet washing station and tons more food, treats, and accessories!
Keeping up with your dog’s fitness is really tough with a busy schedule. They need to get out and stretch their legs. Now, while you’re at work, let Wag! take your furry friend for a walk. Think of Wag! like Uber for your dog. Book a dog walk with one of their trusted Wag! Walkers. Track your Dog’s walk with their live GPS tracker and receive custom reports detailing your dog’s activity. Wag! Walkers are thoroughly vetted, insured and bonded, and guaranteed to show your dog a great time!
