If your dog is large enough to pass for a small pony, then chances are you know “the look.” After smashing through the house, knocking over trash cans and small pieces of furniture, your giant dog stares at you as if to ask, “Who did all that? Little old me?”
Since they can’t help how big they are, and they love you so much, just treat them like the lap dog they believe they are in their giant noggins. Here are a few gift ideas for the holidays:
1. BarkBox / Super Chewer BarkBox
Whether your large pup is a lover of plush toys or needs something meant for their super chompers, a BarkBox subscription is the perfect option. The Classic BarkBox starts at $22/month (12-month plan) and the Super Chewer BarkBox starts at $29/month (12-month plan).
2. Benebone Pawplexer
