No More Dog Breath

It's important for our furry friends to have fresh breath when company comes over. Dentastix are a great stocking-stuffer, especially since most dogs who are more than 3 years old suffer from gum disease.

Pet Speakers!

This is the big splurge item, and it's great for people who really love their pets.

The speakers from Pet Acoustics are billed as the world's first sound system designed to cater to the unique audio sensitivities of dogs, cats and horses.

Because pets can hear frequencies that are outside the normal range of the human ear, some sounds can startle pets or cause them discomfort. This system allows you to enjoy your music without causing your pet any discomfort. The company also makes an iPhone app that allows you to play music directly from your iPhone while eliminating frequencies that may annoy your pet.

Cost: $249.95, from petacoustics.com

Jackets are great for dogs that will be trekking through snow and rain this winter. Preppy leashes and collars are great for your fashion hound.
