Just imagine if you love to get gifts, and then why not surprise your pet with a new gift?  I am sure he is going to love it. So here are few suggestions about top ten gifts for your dog.

So here I am going to open the gift ideas one by one:

  1. Buying a Christmas cap can be a great gift for your puppy, as in red and white; he/she would look great.
  2. Pet nail trimmer: on this Christmas a nail trimmer can make your pets life easy and even can make your fuss away too.
  3. Christmas pajamas make your pet look special as pajamas are available in wide ranges. They are in divergent prints and according to the size of your dog and have their own charm and beauty. Mind it they are also too much comfortable.
  4. Puppy tweets is a really a gift, which tells that you are worried about your dog’s safety. You also can come to know about his different moments. If he barks or squeaks, you will get a tweet on your twitter account for his each moment like if he is missing your or wants you back home, you can be there if you want.
  5. Cozy dog bed: Here your dog can take rest and can feel cozy; it is full of warmth and love for him/her.
  6. Pet food feeder: you can get rid of the fuss of feeding your pet and even he/she can get rid of craving and barking for it, you can gift automatic food feeder to him on this Christmas.
  7. Automatic Drink well fountain: it is really a great combination with automatic feeder, as your pet will get cool drinking water, whenever he wants.
  8. One of the best of available dog toys can be colossal grunter as they have a squeaker in the limb of the toys and make the dogs happy. These can be washed with hands and are easy and soft to play. They are wonderful in look and your dog will get a companion to play with.
  9.  If you are really thinking to give your dog a gift and you don’t have a Dog Kennel then it can be a great idea to make a Kennel or even you can purchase a readymade one from ebay.com if you are interested in online shopping. There is wide variety of dog kennels, which will give him/her special feeling. If you have ample space and have more pets then you can purchase an outdoor kennel otherwise a small indoor kennel can work best at smaller places.
  10.  Dog collar can be a great gift if you wish to purchase it, there are hi-tech dog collars available, which even tell the location of your dog and there is no chance that he/she can be lost anywhere.

Some Things to Watch Out For

When preparing homemade dog treats, make sure you take into account any allergies that your pet has to specific ingredients. You will want to avoid adding any ingredient that you know that your pet has reacted poorly to in the past. If you are experimenting with new flavors, feed the treat to your dog in a small amount to see how he reacts to it before distributing an entire treat. Store your homemade dog treats in an airtight container and place them in the freezer. Allow the treat to thaw for 10 – 20 minutes prior to serving to your dog. Treats can last for up to 6 months in the freezer.

5. Cooked meat can be good source of energy for you your dog. Fat and skin are avoidable.

Homemade Dinner Recipe for Dogs

This recipe feeds 2-3 large dogs for 7-10 days.

Grind the following ingredients in a meat grinder. Alternate ingredients so the grinder does the mixing for you. For instance, grind six necks, one carrot, a handful of garlic and pumpkin seeds, then six more necks and so on. Mix with a large spoon as you grind.

Meat:
• 40 lbs of chicken neck without skins
• 10 lbs of chicken hearts
• 5-10 lbs of organic chicken livers
• 2 cans of pink salmon (optional)

Vegetables:
Can be interchanged with other vegetables and fruits (no grapes or onions). Dogs and cats usually do not like citrus.
• 2-5 lbs carrots
• 1/2 a bunch of red cabbage
• 1 beet
• 2 apples
• 1/2 a bunch of spinach or other dark greens

Other ingredients:
• 1 cup of raw pumpkin seeds

Add a couple of the following items. Have these ready on hand as you are grinding and add a sprinkle here and there of each so you can thoroughly mix the batch of food.
• 9-12 raw whole eggs (optional)
• 2,000 mg of vitamin C powder
• 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Thorvin kelp powder
• 1/4 cup of tumeric powder
• 1/2 to 1 cup of dried parsley
• 1/2 to 1 cup of dried oregano
• 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
• 1/4 cup of tahini
• 1/4 cup of raw honey

After grinding and mixing all ingredients thoroughly, keep the food in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

Midsummer Farm Homemade Fish-Based Dog Dinner

(The below recipe is for 1 medium dog for 3 days, about 10 1-cup-size meatballs) This recipe can be made in larger batches for efficiency sake. This raw food can easily be frozen in meatball shapes appropriate for the size animals you are feeding.

Serving Sizes of Raw Meatballs:
• For a large 50-100 pound dog – three to five 1-cup-size meatballs per day
• For a 20-40 pound dog – two or three 1-cup-size meatballs per day
• For a 1-10 pound dog – one to two 1/2-cup-size meatballs per day
*Remember – this is a concentrated and efficient food source and is power packed. You won’t have to feed as much bulk-wise as with a commercial food; most commercial foods have a lot of fillers.

Ingredients
• 2 pounds of Frozen Fish Fillets. I like to use an oily fish like Mackerel or Whiting.
• 1-2 cans of Alaskan Wild Pink Salmon
• 1/4 – 1/2 pound of Beef Liver
• 1-3 Eggs (optional)
• 2 cups of Chopped Veggies (can be any combination of carrots, cabbage, broccoli, cooked squash, green beans, cooked yams, apples, berries, kale, spinach). Do NOT use onions or grapes of any kind.
• 5-10 Cloves of Garlic (optional)
• 1/2 cup of Pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)
• 2 tbsp Honey
• 2 tbsp Dried Parsley
• 2 tbsp Dried Oregano
• 2 tbsp Tumeric Powder
• 2 tbsp Thorvin Kelp Powder
• Optional: 1 cup of cooked oatmeal, barley, or brown rice

Directions:
Alternate putting frozen (still frozen grind much easier), liver, vegetables, garlic, and seeds through a meat grinder. As you grind into a big bowl, add and mix in the canned salmon, eggs, honey, dried herbs, and powdered kelp.

Keep in a well-sealed container in fridge. Scoop out appropriate amounts for your pet, or if you made a very large batch that is more than can be consumed in about 5 days, roll into meal-sized meatballs and freeze. Then you can just take out whatever number meatballs you need and defrost them a couple days before you need to feed them. Meatballs will last at least 3 months in the freezer.

  1. Cooked rice will be delicious and will give a nice feeling while eating, as you can see that in your pet’s eye. If his stomach is upset then it is really boon.

7. Carrot sticks are good source of energy.

8. Mashed or boiled potatoes are also rich in carbohydrates; if you are unable to make any special dish then they can also be better energy provider.

9. Green beans are always good as green beans and cucumber slices are naturally healthy, good for both you and pet.

10. Pasta can be a good treat to every human but do you know it is good for your dog too? Yes it is and he would love it but don’t make it spicy as you make for yourself.

Near this spot are deposited the remains

Near this spot are deposited the remains of one who possessed Beauty without Vanity, Strength without Insolence, Courage without Ferocity, and all the Virtues of Man, without his Vices. This Praise, which would be unmeaning Flattery if inscribed over human ashes, is but a just tribute to the Memory of Boatswain, a Dog. ~George Gordon, Lord Byron, “Inscription on the Monument of a Newfoundland Dog
