When Christmas comes, you're going to be busy wrapping gifts, entertaining guests and cooking holiday treats. Why not buy some safer Christmas dog toys for your Fido, and keep the dog away from more dangerous stuff. Here are some of the most fun looking, safe and long-tasting dog toys with a Christmas theme.
1Grriggles Naughty or Nice Tennis Balls for Dogs
Balls are never out of style for Christmas or other occasions because dogs never get enough of them. Naughty or Nice Tennis Balls ($9.76) are Christmas-themed and they come in colors of green and red with paw prints and the words “naughty” and “nice”.
The balls are made of felt-covered rubber. Each has a diameter of 2.5”, about the size of a tennis ball. The Grriggles Naughty or Nice Tennis Balls for Dogs is ready to give as a gift since it comes in a nice box with a ribbon, a red rope handle, and a space where you can write the name of the dog you’re giving it to and your own name.
2Scenereal’s Small Dog Squeaky Toys Set
Are you so busy that you’re running out of ideas about what Christmas toys to get for your pet? Sceneral's Small Squeaky Toys Set ($15.99) got you covered. It’s already packed in a box which contains four squeaky stuffed toys – a plush reindeer with textured plastic hooves, Santa’s cane which is made of burlap fabric, a Christmas tree in a similarly-textured fabric, and a red plush gingerbread man.
These Christmas dog toys even look better than their photos, and the quality of material and construction is topnotch. In case you’re thinking of these as tiny toys, then you’re wrong. The Sceneral's Small Dog Squeaky Toys Set is 12” from its feet to the tip of its antlers. Your pets will not only have squeaky toys, they’ll also have cuddly sleep mates.
3EXPAWLORER Dog Rope Chew Toys Set
Active dogs and heavy chewers would need something to occupy them physically and mentally, and this chew rope set would probably be the best pick for you. EXPAWLORER Rope Chew Toys Set ($9.99) are made of non-toxic cotton fibers that were solidly knotted to serve their purpose.
There are four ropes in this set. The 2.7” ball is tightly knotted and will be great for playing chase and fetch. All these Christmas dog toys, including the 9.5” rope candy tug, 15.5” rope ball, and 18.8” rope knot, are best used for interactive games. They’re not only floss for teeth and gums, but also floss for mental development. The EXPAWLORER Dog Rope Chew Toys Set also comes with a cute bonus owl toy.
4Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Snowball
The Orbee-Tuff Snowball from Planet Dog will be a great item to stuff inside your dog’s Christmas stocking or buy as gifts for your friends’ dogs. This white ball has an irregular texture that will be good for your dog’s gums and teeth. We bet this texture is the reason for the ball’s unpredictable bounce that makes it the perfect ball for a game of throw-and-fetch.
The Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Snowball is 2.75” across its diameter. It bounces and floats, and is chewy, too. What dog could possibly resist that? It’s very durable, and for your peace of mind, it can take heavy chewing and all the usual abuses that only dogs can think of.
5Holiday Chimney Burrow
Dogs love digging and fiddling with tiny toys or treats stuck somewhere. This hide-and-seek toy will challenge their mind for sure, and keep them from getting bored. This set consists of a plush chimney-like red box with an opening on the top.
Your dog will have fun getting out of the box the three squeaky stuff toys inside – a Santa and two reindeer. You may also add some treats, a different treat at a time, to add some element of surprise to your dog’s exploration of the Holiday Chimney Burrow ($10.99). The regular-sized box has these measurements: 6”x 6” x 5”.
6Charming Christmas Henrietta Chicken
We can just imagine how thrilled your dog would be with these Christmas dog toys from Charming. She squawks with every pressure on her and you know how your pooch would like that very much. This chicken dog toy is 13” tall, made of latex, and poly-filled.
Henrietta’s red 2-piece clothing is hand-painted and Christmas-themed, so she’s aptly called a dressed Christmas chicken. Her skin is textured with bumps, which dogs like chewing on, but what will really make your dog’s Christmas morning would be the loud squeal that this Charming Christmas Henrietta Chicken ($17.99) gives out. Lead-free paint was used to ensure that this toy causes you or your pet no harm.
7Santa Squeaky Plush Dog Toy
This Santa toy doesn’t say “Ho, ho, ho!” Instead, it squeals and that sound sends dogs’ tails wagging. This plush toy is made mainly of a round stuffed material wrapped in red velvet fabric with a beige-and-white part for Santa’s face and beard. A red Santa cap protrudes on the top of the round part, and arms and legs were added to the sides and bottom, respectively.
Pompoms were attached as cap top and nose, and they’re usually the first to go in these Christmas dog toys, with the dangling limbs going next. Even after the usual dog abuse, the Holiday Brainey Santa Squeaky Plush Toy ($7.49) round face and body, or whatever remains of it, dogs would still love it and spend plenty of fun time with it.
8Holiday Squeakie Buddies Dog Toy
These squeaky Christmas dog toys will entertain your dog no end with their loud sound, and we mean really loud. One set includes a Santa, a reindeer, and a snowman. What makes these toys unique is that the whole toy squeaks, not just a spot in the toy.
The toys are made of a shaped plastic wrapped in colorful and funny cover. Since these are not stuffed, there would be no messy filling to clean up in case your dog decides to chew them to pieces. Holiday Squeakie Buddies ($9.99) are so light dogs just love to flip them, make them squeak, and bring them wherever they go.
9Grriggles GR Holiday Hound Gift Set
Surprise your dog, or a friend’s dog, with this boxful of Christmas dog toys. The box from Grriggles contains four squeaky toys: a green vinyl football, a green vinyl ball with paw spikes, a velvety bone, and a rope bone. All four toys will definitely start your dog working.
They’re good not only for oral health but also for their temperament and mental development. What we’ve described is the green set, but a red set is also available. The Grriggles GR Holiday Hound Gift Set ($19.97) contains a different set of toys, including dumbbells instead of balls, a hot dog, and a red football. All toys squeak and are differently textured.
10ZippyPaws Holiday Jigglerz Plush Dog Toy
A toy feeds on a dog’s canine instinct to tear up its prey, and that’s probably why ZippyPaws keeps coming up with stuffing-free toys, like this plush 20-inch reindeer squeaker. Without stuffing, the choking hazard posed by stuffed material is eliminated and there’s less mess to clean up with these Christmas dog toys.
Your dog can flip and shake this toy to make it squeak. Underneath the fuzzy material is another layer of lining which makes the toy more durable. A crinkle material inside the head of the Holiday Jigglerz Squeaky Reindeer Plush Toy ($9.49) makes an interesting sound that usually appeals to dogs. This is durably made, and the crisscrossed stitching gives the toy a solid body.
11Hedgehog Squeaky Plush Dog Toy
Your dog will love playing with this squeaky, furry little hedgehog. The small size is 3.9” high and the large size is 5” high. The XL size is actually huge for a hedgehog. Its underside and legs are made of plush brown fabric, while its spines are made of dense furry material.
This hedgehog wears a red removable Santa hat that you can take off after Christmas, if your dog hasn’t chewed it off after the Christmas morn. One thing you’d like about the Holiday Hedgehog Squeaky Plush Toy ($6.49) is that it won’t roll like a ball, so even when it gets tossed a lot, it will just be around waiting to be picked up.
12Christmas Sugar Cookie Plush Dog Toy
Gingerbread men have never been this fun before. Midlee’s gingerbread man is soft and cuddly and squeaks a lot when your dog does slightly more than cuddling. This toy is made of light brown plush fabric with stuffing. It is shaped like a gingerbread man. A darker brown fabric is stitched along the inner outline and embroidered with details.
This is a well-made and solidly stitched stuffed toy. Imagine your dog’s glee when he or she finds this inside his or her Christmas stocking! The small Christmas Sugar Cookie Plush Toy ($13.00) is 5” tall while the bigger one is 8”. It’s also available in Santa hat shape.
13Reindeer Squeaky Plush Dog Toy
Another toy from ZippyPaws, this baby reindeer is so cute! We hope your dog finds it too adorable to tear apart. These Christmas dog toys are made of golden brown fuzzy material with white and red mixed in. There’s only one size available with these measurements: 8”x8”x4”.
What’s unique about this squeaky toy is that it doesn’t just have one sound. It has two squeakers, and each one makes a different sound. The Holiday Reindeer Squeaky Plush Toy ($7.49) actually bigger than how it looks in the photo, but very cuddly all the same. It will make a soft and huggable toy to bring to bed with. This will hold up nicely to tossing and gripping, but not to your power boys’ rough play.
14Outward Hound Holiday Squeaker Mat
The downside with soft fluffy stuffed toys is that inquisitive and mischievous pooches will keep on finding ways to “disembowel” them. This Christmas-inspired squeaky mat from Outward Hound was designed to divert dogs from doing that. They’d have fun flipping and shaking these long and flat squeakers instead.
These Christmas dog toys have three patterns – reindeer, gingerbread man, and Santa – which will be recognizable from the head and face of the toy. The rest of the toy is the long body which holds 16 squeakers. So if one squeaker stops working, there will be a whole lot more left in the Outward Hound Holiday Squeaker Mat ($11.89).
15Jigglerz Squeaky Santa Dog Toy
This is similar to the flat Outward Hound toy before this, except that this has totally no stuffing in it – none in the head part or anywhere else. These Christmas dog toys are more like your dog’s favorite blanket that he never sleeps without. Except that it will be more entertaining than a blanket because it squeaks.
And talking about squeaks, this toy doesn’t need to be chewed on or hit or bumped to make the sound. The Holiday Jigglerz Squeaky Santa Plush Toy ($9.49) has a Jigglerz squeaker that produces a sound when shaken or whipped about. It also has a crinkle paper in the head and feet which adds to the fun. These dog Christmas toys are Santa-inspired and are mainly in red color, with black and white details.
16Expawlorer Cute Xmas Snowman
This 16.5-inch snowman is so adorable and soft. It’s made of a long stuffed plush fabric stitched into four round sections. The top section forms the head with embroidered and patched details for the snowman’s happy face. These Christmas dog toys from Expawlorer wear a tartan plaid cap, and the same fabric was used for the scarf and mittens.
The second section from the bottom is where the squeaker is located. The Expawlorer Cute Xmas Snowman is not designed for dogs that you know to be aggressive chewers, but for dogs just would be happy tossing it around, chewing on it lightly, or taking it along to its activities.
17Christmas Reindeer Dog Rope Toy by Kooltail
Rope toys can be quite common, so this Christmas reindeer dog rope toy from Kooltail will be a pleasant variation yet lends the same benefits that rope toys do. The rope used to shape this toy is made from 100% cotton fiber and non-toxic dyes.
This reindeer toy is mainly brown and white in color with red mouth and dark brown antlers. It is 6.2” long and 4.7” high, which is an ideal size for small dogs. The Christmas Reindeer Rope Toy ($6.99) is inexpensive and durable, and would make an interesting gift for friends and family members who also own small or medium breed dogs.
18Loopy Reindeer Plush Dog Toy
This is similar in concept to the stuffing-free plush dog toys we’ve included in this list. It is shaped in a loop with a reindeer head, though it looks more like a turtle because of its ring shape. These Christmas dog toys are 10”x8”x1” in size, and has light brown body and head with dark brown feet and antlers. The ring-shaped body has six sections and each section has a squeaker.
The Holiday Loopy Reindeer Squeaky Plush Toy is a solidly-constructed toy, and dogs seem less interested in ripping it apart. The loop design easily makes it a favorite toy for two dogs to bond and play tug with.
19Holiday Crinkle Plush Dog Toy
Get the laughs with this lanky Santa that squeaks and makes crinkly sounds. These Christmas dog toys are made of red thick-ribbed velvet fabric, with cream, white, and black materials for Santa’s other details. It strikes a funny picture because of Santa’s gangly legs. This toy measures 16” long and you can imagine it dangling from your doggy’s mouth.
All four limbs have a crinkle paper inside and there’s one squeaker stuffed inside Santa’s body. Hearing all the sounds of the Holiday Crinkle Squeaky Plush Toy ($8.80) is really amusing and we’re sure your dog will spend endless hours making them. It’s modestly priced, too, which makes this a favorite purchase for Christmas.
20ZippyPaws Crinkle Penguin Plush Dog Toy
This is the penguin variation of lanky Santa, and it’s equally fun to have for your little girls and boys. This is stuffed but does not contain as much stuffing as most soft and plump plushies. It is very well made.
Like Santa, the Holiday Crinkle Squeaky Penguin Plush Toy ($8.49) is also made of ribbed velvet fabric, but in black color. The combination of sounds these Christmas dog toys make also comes from 1 squeaker and crinkle paper inside the limbs. It has a red Santa hat and orange nose and webbed feet. There are two sizes available and the large one is 19” long from the top of its cap to the tips of its feet.
21PetSutra Figure 8 Dog Rope Toy
Ropes are great for bonding between you and your dog, and PetSutra’s Figure 8 rope toy is a high-quality rope to use for playing tug-and-war. This rope is made of natural materials tightly woven to withstand rough play and pulling.
The rope is shaped into a number 8 figure and held in the middle by a solidly-stitched material to keep it in place and in shape. The PetSutra Figure 8 Dog Rope Toy is a great toy to have to help dogs get over boredom, anxiety, destructive chewing, or unspent energy. While they pull and tug with this rope, their teeth and gums also get stimulated, which is great for their oral health.
22Christmas Dog Rope Toy by Bingpet
Fill your pet’s Christmas stocking with treats and this 19.7-inch long dog toy. These dog Christmas toys from Bingpet is made of 100% cotton fiber tightly woven into a rope and knotted to produce this rope with three knots and two balls. The balls are each 2.3” in diameter and places before the knots on each end. The knots are slightly smaller in diameter than the balls.
Rope knots and balls are great toys to have for interactive activities to stimulate the brain, similarly to many other interactive toys for dogs. It’s a fun way to train dogs and drain their excess energy before the day ends. The Christmas Rope Toy ($6.99) keeps them physically fit and mentally alert, and helps maintain healthy gums and teeth.
