10 Christmas Dog Toys We Absolutely Adore
by Jessi Larson
The holidays are right around the corner, and that means it’s time to find Christmas dog toys your pup will love.
From the cute, cuddly toys for smaller pups to the tough and durable options for the big dogs, we have everyone covered.
Although the toys on this list are very different in nature, they all have one thing in common: lots and lots of holiday cheer. From first glance, it’s clear these toys are created for Christmas.
10 Cool Christmas Dog Toys
At My Dog’s Name, we spend hours researching the best dog products. Finding cool Christmas dog toys is a fun assignment because who doesn’t love the holidays and all the joy they bring? Then couple that with all the fun a dog will have with a new toy. It doesn’t get much better than this.
So, after searching high and low, here is a list of Christmas dog toys we adore and think you will, too.
If you’re looking at Christmas dog toys for a small or medium-sized dog, this collection is quite adorable. For $10.99, you get three squeaky plush toys in the shapes of classic Christmas characters: Santa, a reindeer and a snowman.
In addition to the super cute design, we also love that these toys contain no stuffing, which, as many of us pup parents know, is something pups absolutely love to rip out.
Overall, this is a classic, straightforward Christmas gift for that special dog in our lives.
Another great toy is the Holiday Hedgehog Squeaky Plush Toy, also from Zippy Paws. It’s simple yet adorable.
The super cute Santa hat is removable, so once the holiday season is over, remove the hat and you have a year-round toy.
Fun and festive, the toy comes in sizes from small up to extra large, so there’s an option for dogs of every weight class.
Planet Dog Snowball or Lump of Coal, starting at $10.54
Was your dog naughty or nice this year? Usually the answer is somewhere in between, so why not get them both of these Christmas dog toys?
Fun design aside, these balls are actually quite practical. They bounce and float, so you can play a fun game of fetch on land or in the water.
And, as an added bonus, they are manufactured in the United States and 100% recyclable.
Since we’re on the topic of dog balls, this gift is a fun, holiday-infused take on the classic tennis ball. The set includes four tennis balls with red and green coloring, the saying naughty/nice and cute paw prints.
We also love that this comes in a festive box with a convenient handle. No gift wrapping necessary!
When searching for Christmas dog toys, a big question is whether the dog will like it. With this gift, however, there’s no doubt your dog will love this tried-and-true classic.
Christmas dog toys don’t get much cuter than this. How it works is that you stuff the adorable, squeaky reindeers inside the festive, holiday box and challenge your dog to borough inside and find them. You can also throw some dog treats in the mix for added fun.
Once the dog finds the toys, they’ll enjoy chewing, chomping and making a squeaky noise.
Keep in mind that this set is designed for small and medium dogs. If you have a large dog who loves to chew, this isn’t the best option. But, we have other Christmas dog toys on the list that are a better fit for the big pups. Like the next item.
Pup parents with large-sized dogs know what a godsend rope toys are. These big beasts seem to tear apart just about every other toy, but ropes seem to last a whole lot longer.
With this in mind, we were quite happy to find this XL holiday-themed rope toy at Petco. Not only does it have a green and red festive rope, the toy also includes multicolored plush dog toy light bulbs with squeakers to make it look like a strand of Christmas lights.
Just when it seems like all the Christmas dog toys are delicate and geared toward small dogs, this fantastic XL-sized toy comes around, and we couldn’t be happier.
Can’t decide between a dog treat or toy? Why not get both!
The Christmas Dog Treat Bones and Toy Ball Present Bundle includes two delicious peanut butter dog treats (with holiday decorations!) and one Christmas-themed ball (designs vary). Once your dog is done enjoying a treat, they can switch over to enjoying a game of fetch with their new festive ball.
This set includes not one, not two or even three, but FOUR Christmas dog toys. For $14.99, you get plush toys in the shapes of a gingerbread man, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus and a Christmas tree.
Dogs love the squeakers inside of toys, and these include double squeakers to really entice our furry friends.
Most dog owners have heard of Nylabone, the creator of super tough, non-edible dog chews. And if you haven’t, you should definitely check them out! They keep dogs busy and last FOREVER.
So imagine our delight when we found out that Nylabone offers a holiday chew set with bones colored red, green and white.
And, not only do they look like Christmas dog toys, they also TASTE like the holidays. Mind blown.
The red is turkey and cranberry flavored, green tastes like peppermint, and the white has a chicken taste.
We’re in love.
First off, these Holiday Giggle Plush Toys are totally adorable. Inspired by traditional Christmas characters, they include a stuffed, plush tummy as well as rope legs, creating a two-in-one dog toy that’s perfect for the holiday season.
But wait – there’s more. The toys include a squeaker, but it’s not what you’d expect. Instead of the traditional squeaking noise, these let out a giggle sound.
You heard that right. These Christmas dog toys giggle. Try not to laugh too hard when your dog is chomping on a giggling elf!
