Gifts Service Dog Partners and their Service Dog will love

No matter what holiday puts you in the festive mood, getting the right gift for your four-legged companion can boggle the mind. This can be especially true for the friends and family who may want to thank your service dog for the service and energy they have brought into your life.


(Be observant of the kinds of treats they give their dogs. What may be a perfectly fine treat for one dog may be asking for trouble with the next. Be mindful of allergies and chewing styles.)
  • Pig Ears
  • Bully sticks
  • Training treats selection (remember to avoid one with ingredients of wheat, corn, or soy as these comprise some of the top allergies in dogs)
  • Nylabone Edibles
  • Greenies
Training Tools and Games:

Gifts for the Service Dog Handler:
  • Gift card to their preferred pet supply store
  • Prepay for their next trip to the groomer
  • Prepay for a well-dog vet visit
  • -Dog First Aid Kit
  • -Doggie Traveler Kit (I have one of these and love it. I just switched the balls out for my dog's favorite toy. It's great to have all your service dog's stuff together and marked when travelling long distance by train, bus or air.)
  • A subscription to their favorite dog magazine or one of these service dog newsletters
  • Pet Passport for keeping those all important records including a current picture, vaccination records, health history, and more. I also keep my current rabies certificate, and health certificate in mine!
