While you’re enjoying your large turkey dinner and stuffing your face with cakes, pies—and whatever else you can get your hands on—Fido is in the corner just wishing he could have a bite.
But usually he can’t. Sweets made for humans are way too sugary for dogs and can make them throw up.
You don’t need that kinda mess this holiday.
That’s why we’ve compiled a huge list of holiday-themed dog treats that your dog can enjoy alongside his human counterparts.
Since they’re all found on Amazon, almost anyone can order them to enjoy all season long.
20 Christmas Dog Treats to Give as Dog Gifts
Take into account any dietary restrictions and flavor preferences when selecting holiday treats. For big bags, you may wish to separate them into smaller bags or boxes and distribute them to other canine friends throughout the season
#1 Pumpkin Dog Ice Cream
While you enjoy your pumpkin pie and whipped cream, allow your dog to have a pumpkin-flavored treat too. Even in the dead cold of winter, we know he won’t object. Simply add water to the mix and freeze for whenever you’re ready.
Pawsative Ruffview: “The ice cream was a hit. I bought this for my dog for her birthday. She loved it. Even my cats got to taste it and they liked it. And …. don’t tell anyone, but because of the ingredients, I licked the spoon to see what it tasted like. I’m impressed. I’m not going to sit down and eat a bowl of this stuff, but it didn’t make me gag. It just tasted like salty, bacon flavored milk. I’ll buy this again for MY DOG for other special occasions.”
#2 Pumpkin or Gingerbread Dog Biscuits
Another pumpkin option, these are easy to digest with nothing artificial. The company also donates 5% of net profits to animal shelters and programs, so get into that holiday giving spirit!
Pawsative Ruffview: “I have searched all over for healthy yummy treats that are low in phosphorus. My dog love these treats. I like that they have very few ingredients and feel like they were not mass produced. The Gingerbread and Pumpkin you can even taste them for yourself. They truly seem like they were baked in your oven. Thank you. Please keep making low phosphorus treats.”
#3 Gourmet Box of Christmas Dog Treats
Who doesn’t love a box of chocolates? Of course, your dog can’t have cocoa, but this is the next best thing! The package comes in with 75 assorted all-natural treats.
Pawsative Ruffview: “My mom (RIP) ordered these cookies every single Christmas for about five years for our dogs. She ordered them from some mail order catalog. Our dogs love opening the box on Christmas and enjoy the cookies even more! Some are a nice, quarter size, others are a tiny (like the bones). Always crunchy, have never been stale. The presentation on the box is beautiful and this was the first year I thought the dogs would have to go without them, but they magically appeared as a suggested in my Amazon feed!! I just HAD to get them:) ~ we love how this came to be for us this year, and the dogs just love the product! I hope I can buy them again next Christmas :)”

When it’s the holidays and we all have Christmas cookies, I love to be able to give my doggies a Christmas treat too!”
#5 Snowflake Dog Treats Vanilla Flavor
I wrapped these up last year for my dog and he loved them! They’re small enough to use as training treats and tasty enough to have your dog licking his lips all day long in anticipation. Also, unlike other dog treats, these don’t smell disgusting or leave a weird scent on your hands.
Pawsative Ruffview: “I have a finicky eater, my British Lab…but when I put a few of these Snowflake Vanilla treats on top, he eats his entire serving of food! They also make great training treats and they are easy to break apart to make them last longer.”

Our latest Lab is the FIRST one to be ‘fussy’ about food. We bought her these for Xmas and she LOVED them! Gobbled them up! DOG APPROVED!”

So for Christmas I bought this and separated them into zip lock baggies and handed them out for doggie Christmas presents. Although to a human they appear to be like rice cake or styrophome consistency, they are cute, colorful doggie shapes and dogs love them. This container had the flavours of chicken, beef, and vegetable and the doggies liked each flavour.”

#9 Grain-Free Holiday Dog Treats
Just because your pup has a sensitive stomach doesn’t mean he needs to forgo Christmas cookies! These grain-free treats even include colorful icing in shapes such as the Grinch.
Pawsative Ruffview: “Just gave a cookie to the dog on Christmas, and he loved it! He’s a an 18-lb terrier, not very big, so now I give him 1/3 or 1/2 of one. They are about the size of a standard Christmas cookie, so they’re big to give him a whole one. He has grain allergies, so I’ve not been able to get him real “cookies” before. This is a great treat.”

I usually put down 2 or 3 other treats at a time just to get an idea of what she really likes and these are almost always her top choice next to beef jerky. It takes her no less then 3 minutes to eat one and the length of each is about 2/3rds of a ruler. These treats are a moderate chew, not soft but not very hard either. Overall a great product.”

The cookies were well packaged to prevent breakage and to keep fresh. I split them up into small baggies to give to dog friends in the neighborhood. They were a huge hit! Even the ‘fussy’ dogs liked them. They are so beautiful that you could put them on a plate at a Christmas party and no one would think they were for dogs. One of my neighbors even tried one (on purpose) and said it was pretty good! Thanks for such a tail wagging treat!”
