Happy Howlidays Doggie Treat Basket Giveaway #TreatsForAll

Doggies In christmas outfits

My pups are my babies too and they are thrilled I have a chance to do this sponsored post, where all opinions are my own. They are just as much a part of the family as my human babies, so when it comes to Christmas time, we don’t like to leave them out. After all we do need…Cute Dog

I came across this super cute website called TheNosePrint.com from Big Heart Pet Brands (the makers of Milk-Bone, Pup-Peroni, Canine Carry Outs, and Milo’s Kitchen) and it gives some great ideas for treating your pups this Christmas season. They really know how to celebrate the holidays with your fur baby! On TheNosePrint.com, check out some of the fun doggy do-it-yourself ideas they’ve dreamed up here: http://thenoseprint.com/article/diy-holiday-dog-gifts. My favorite was the Howliday Treat Keeper. Seriously, how cute is this?

This treat is sure to be a hit with Dexter or Guido. Slobbery kisses? Check. Yummy treat? Check. Yes, it’s pretty much the best gift idea ever. We always think of making hand ornaments with our kids but we don’t want to leave our pups out! That’s why I’m also loving the homemade paw-print ornament. Why not have your fur-baby make an ornament you can treasure forever? Other great homemade doggy gifts include a treat bouquet, a sweet treat jar, and a ho-ho-howliday treat bag. Dexter and Guido are going to have a very special holiday break.

Holiday Doggies

The NosePrint.com also asked 3,000 Americans about their dog-related holiday habits, including whether their dog is involved in gift-giving, stocking-stuffing, Christmas sweater-wearing, and other holiday traditions. What they found is that Americans really LOVE their pets. For instance, did you know 71% of dog parents give gifts to their pups? Have you completed your Christmas doggy shopping yet?

According to the survey, here are the top 5 reasons people give gifts to their dog:

1. To express love to my dog: 72%
2. Because it’s fun for me: 60%
3. To help my dog feel included like a family member: 54%
4. To give my dog a moment of happiness: 53%
5. To feel closer and bond with my dog: 43%

For me, I like to give presents to Guido and Dexter because of all of these reasons. They are both such an important part of the family — I can’t imagine the holidays without them.

The study also shared how often dogs are included into popular Christmas traditions:

1. 48% of dog parents hang a Christmas stocking for their dog.
2. 43% of dog parents include a dog in a photo for a family holiday card.
3. 32% post photos of their dog on social media with a holiday message.
4. 29% dress up their dog in a holiday-themed costume or outfit.
5. 22% make or buy dog-themed holiday decorations.

I spoil my pets and I am sure you do to, seems we are not alone! Check out which states have the most spoiled pups! The 2015 TheNosePrint.com Santa Dog Index ranks states based on how much, on average, dog parents will spend on their furry kids:

Top 10 States That Spend the Most on Holiday Gifts for Dogs:

1. New Jersey: $29.61 (average gift spending per dog for state residents)
