zippy-paws-milk-cartonKeep your dog captivated and engaged with Zippy Paws Burrow plush toys. These product line of interactive toys feature a burrow (in different varieties and levels of cuteness) in which the hooman hides three smaller Zippy Paws plush toys inside. For example, the Santa’s Milk and Cookies Holiday Burrow consists of a plushy milk carton burrow and three round, smiling cookies. Your pup can then play a fun hide-and-seek game by finding and removing the three plushies from the milk carton burrow. Other product variations include black bears in a log and aliens in a UFO and that’s just for starters. This company is imaginative! All components are non-toxic and machine washable. So whether you’re looking for a holiday gift for your pup or one smack dab in the middle of summer, Zippy Paws has you covered.

Check out The Dog Stop’s Zippy Paws offerings at their retail store for more fun products or visit the Zippy Paws website to place an order.


hugglehoundWhat’s a HuggleHound? Good question, and we’re here to solve that mystery ! You probably saw these squeaky, knitted toys with knotted limbs but didn’t know what they were called. More than just a dog toy, each HuggleHound™ is made with care to be a long-time companion to your pup or kitty. The one-of-a-kind designs are hand-stitched using the company’s exclusive cutting-edge Tuffut Technology®. Available in sizes, every double-layered, lined Hugglehound is tested to withstand 100 pounds of tugging and pulling pressure. That’s a lot of rough play, but HuggleHound, with its ultra-soft exterior, also makes for a perfect sleeping companion for your dog.

Your local The Dog Stop has a great selection of HuggleHounds and other holiday gift ideas for dogs or order directly from the HuggleHound website.

ea feast chew


For the holidays, The Dog Stop wants to help you give your fur babies a feast they’ll never forget, and that’s why they’re giving Earth Animal’s The Feast No-Hide Wholesome Chew a

shoutout! The chew is loaded with turkey (sustainably sourced), cranberry, and pumpkin. It’s long-lasting, super-healthy, and ‘mind-blowingly tasty.’ (This is a direct quote from a dog who wishes to remain anomalous because they’re in the Bitness Protection Program).  The FEAST will satisfy your pup and make it feel part of the food-centric celebration. It may even stop your dog from beggin’ for people food as you’re seated at the dinner table.

Get the Feast Chew at your favorite The Dog Stop location or purchase online directly from Earth Animal.


this-and-that-antler-chewFrustrated with your pup’s food allergies, sensitive stomach, or picky appetite? This & That Canine Company believes all pets deserve delicious, healthy snacks – so they’ve created a line of limited-ingredient, A-Grade antler treats that are paw-fect for any dog. This and That Canine Company’s Antler Chew have no preservatives, filler, sugars, or  artificial flavours (since this is a Canadian company, will spell ‘flavors’ their way).The antlers are naturally shed on Canadian Venison Farms and they claim that they have the toughest dog chew on the market. Two-legged fans also love the fact that these antlers have no scent, are not mushy or messy, or won’t leave behind an unsightly carpet stain.

There is limited availability of these products in the States, but you can hunt them down as well as other holiday gift ideas for dogs at your local The Dog Stop.
