Welcome to Metropolitan Mama’s Christmas Gift Guide for Golden Retrievers. Below you will find dog beds, toys, leashes, collars, training books, and other gear that Golden Retrievers (and their owners!) are bound to love for Christmas 2021.
In case you missed the BIG NEWS, our family welcomed a golden retriever puppy into our home last year and she is now a few months past her first birthday.
Christmas is the perfect time to surprise your golden with her favorite treats and an assortment of new toys! KONG is a brand that is well-known among dog owners and it's a great place to start shopping for the holidays.
Absolutely paw-fect for the holidays! Your dog will love chewing on this squeakable pumpkin pie plush toy by ZippyPaws. This 9 x 9 x 5 inch soft toy even features a lattice top and a playful dollop of whipped cream on top!
ZippyPaw's luxe collection of premium top grain leather collars and leashes come in a lovely array of colors with gorgeous chic rose gold accessories. Ideal for the distinguished pet owner!
Golden retrievers are known for their energy, loyalty, friendliness, and playfulness. They are a very social breed of dogs and love people of all ages. This can mean that they are prone to jumping, licking, and nipping - especially in the early puppy years. Premier Pet's 400 Yard Trainer can help you in your efforts to teach basic obedience to your dog. With the included remote, you can deliver tone or static stimulation to correct any misbehavior. With a little training, your golden will understand how to act and play in your yard and your home for everyone's safety.
PetFusion dubbed this "The Ultimate Pet Bed" - and it certainly lives up to its name! Constructed with memory foam, It's luxuriously soft. In fact, you'll wish YOUR bed felt like this one. It's also thoughtfully designed for easy care - the removable cover is water-resistant, tear-resistant, and machine-washable.
* The bed pictured above is size LARGE in Slate Gray. In the photo above, our golden retriever puppy was 3 1/2 months old. She is now 14 months old and still fits wonderfully in this bed.
If you have a baby, you are probably familiar with the California Baby line of skincare products. What you may not know is that they ALSO have a fur baby puppy wash and conditioner (both scented and unscented varieties), which are free of allergens and specifically pH balanced for pets.
Some of the products in the list below were sent to us to try. Other products are ones that we purchased ourselves or were given by family members and friends. Know that I will always provide both the pros and cons of each featured product. You are welcome to send any follow-up questions to me via twitter (I’m @stephsheaffer).
