Rock ‘N Bowl Puzzle Feeder Dog Bowl: The Fun Interactive Enrichment Dog Dish
What looks like a standard bowl is actually a unique puzzle feeder that will have your dog thinking, problem solving and having fun all at once.
By adding environmental enrichment to mealtime, you turn a routine part of the day into a fun brainteaser. Just pour food directly into the top (as easy as a normal bowl), the food runs through a hidden compartment, and your dog has to paw, nudge, and play her way through mealtime. Dogs are wired to forage and hunt for food – it’s in their DNA! A standard bowl just can’t satisfy the curiosity and intelligence that every dog possesses and a slo-bowl slows eating with frustrating obstacles. Instead, the Rock ‘N Bowl builds off your dog’s natural behavior by turning a 30-second, chow down into an engaging, thought-provoking, playtime puzzle.

Roomba j7+: The Ultimate Robotic Vac Made Especially With Pet Parents in Mind
Every pet parent remembers the photos that went viral a few years ago after a Roomba ran over puppy poop and left a zig-zag of smears all over the floor. We all laughed our tails off…but imagined the horror, too. Have no fear, pet parents! Launched just this past September, the Roomba j7+ is iRobot’s latest robot vacuum that can now identify and actively avoid your pet’s waste — a lifesaving feature that’s worth having for the holidays and beyond.
We’ve been testing out a Roomba j7+ for a while now to make sure it could handle crumbs, dirt, and dog fur before recommending it. And, this little thing is PAWSOME. It’s surprisingly powerful and can handle area rugs, hardwood floors, and tile. When it’s done vacuuming, it rolls itself right over to its charging base, empties itself, and gets ready for the next cleaning day.
Dirt on the floor and dog hair tumbleweeds in the hall are a thing of the past because Roomba does a quick whole house vacuum three days a week. And, this robot has a camera on the front, so if there’s an obstacle it doesn’t recognize, it will send a photo to your phone so you can instruct Roomba to avoid or clean around it.
Now here’s one more thing that’s really cool. If the Roomba’s pricetag makes it seem untouchable — you can now purchase your Roomba j7+ through iRobot’s Select program. You get a cutting edge cleaning robot, a dedicated Support Team, new accessories automatically shipped as you need them, and a premium protection plan, all for $29 a month. This might be one gift you’ll want to keep for yourself!

The Bulldog: The Ultimate Toy for Interactive and Unpredictable Fun
Provide the dog on your holiday shopping list with tons of interactive fun! The Bulldog by Zeus will keep your pup busy and on his toes for hours of endless fun. Watch your pet chase the Bulldog as it barks, shakes and rolls unpredictably around the room!
The Bulldog will keep your dog entertained both indoors or outside, as it functions on hard floors, carpet, grass, even gravel. It’s the perfect toy for an energetic, fun-loving dog!
Shop for The Bulldog on Amazon.
Rocochet: The Smart Dog Toy for Active and Squeaker-Loving Pups
Reward your dog with a new challenging toy: the PetSafe Ricochet Electronic Dog Toy. When your dog plays with one of the interactive coupled toys, a fun and exciting squeaker sounds from another toy. If your furry friend found the second toy, the first toy will sound again. Your dog will love chasing after the squeaky noise.
Ricochet is not a chew toy, which makes it particularly durable and guarantees long term fun. Increase difficulty by hiding the toys behind a piece of furniture or in an adjacent room. The toys have a range of up to 9 metres. And if your dog no longer wants to play, it will automatically turn off after 60 minutes of inactivity to protect the battery life. PetSafe Ricochet is the perfect addition to your dog’s toy collection.
Shop for Petsafe Ricochet toys on Amazon.

6-Month PAWP Membership: The Gift of Peace of Mind
Pawp is a pet insurance alternative, whose ultimate goal is to reduce the number of pets who are euthanized every year due to financial reasons (which, sadly, accounts for 66% of all cases.) I became a Pawp subscriber last year after one of my dogs was seriously injured during an encounter with wildlife in the backyard. Her medical expenses drained thousands from my pet emergency fund and maxed out my CareCredit card. I was worried that if any other emergencies happened before I replenished my account or paid down my credit card, I’d be in serious trouble. I found peace of mind by subscribing to Pawp. For just $24 a month, my entire fur-family (all 6 pets) is covered for up to $3,000 and there are no exceptions. That means even if my dog has another emergency, she’ll be covered, too.
Pawp is instant and unlimited, connecting members to experienced vets within two minutes for both general pet questions and more serious issues. If the Pawp Vet determines that a pet needs emergency care, the member will have access to $3,000 in emergency funds to be used at the clinic of their choice one time per year. No copay, no deductible, and no paying it back.
Now, just in time for the holiday season, Pawp is offering 6-month Gift Memberships for just $99! That’s six months of 24/7 pet care for health, nutrition, and behavior, a $3,000/year safety net for a vet emergency, and Unlimited, on-demand online vet visits. What’s better than the gift of peace of mind?

The Forever Dog: Surprising New Science to Help Your Canine Companion Live Younger, Healthier, and Longer
The Forever Dog was one of the most highly anticipated book releases in 2021—an amazing accomplishment for a book about dog health! On its release, it immediately became a bestseller.
The Forever Dog gives us the practical, proven tools to protect our loyal four-legged companions. Rodney Habib and Karen Becker, DVM, globetrotted (pre-pandemic) to galvanize the best wisdom from top geneticists, microbiologists, and longevity researchers; they also interviewed people whose dogs have lived into their 20s and even 30s. The result is this unprecedented and comprehensive guide, filled with surprising information, invaluable advice, and inspiring stories about dogs and the people who love them.
The Forever Dog prescriptive plan focuses on diet and nutrition, movement, environmental exposures, and stress reduction, and can be tailored to the genetic predisposition of particular breeds or mixes. The authors discuss various types of food—including what the commercial manufacturers don’t want us to know—and offer recipes, easy solutions, and tips for making sure our dogs obtain the nutrients they need. Habib and Dr. Becker also explore how external factors we often don’t think about can greatly affect a dog’s overall health and wellbeing, from everyday insults to the body and its physiology, to the role our own lifestyles and our vets’ choices play. Indeed, the health equation works both ways and can travel ‘up the leash.’
Medical breakthroughs have expanded our choices for canine health—if you know what they are. This definitive dog-care guide empowers us with the knowledge we need to make wise choices, and to keep our dogs healthy and happy for years to come.
