The holidays are just around the corner, which means it's time to start shopping for everyone on your list—canines included! Seasonal and Christmas dog toys are hitting the shelves and there is something perfect for every pup.

Providing your dog with fun new toys will help them stay occupied and entertained during the holiday hustle and bustle. This will not only keep them out of your hair while you're wrapping presents and hanging garland, but it will also help them stay safe. Dogs who are bored have a tendency to find themselves in trouble, sniffing out holiday foods that could be toxic for dogs or accidentally knocking down the Christmas tree as they tried to stretch their legs indoors. Dogs who are stimulated are less likely to get into a Christmas pickle—a win for everybody!

Maybe you're busy with an end-of-year work project and need something to keep your pup occupied for a few hours, or you just want Fido to be able to enjoy opening presents with the rest of the family, this list has plenty of interactive toy options that'll engage their brain as well as their body. And no matter if your pup was on the nice list or the naughty list, there's something that'll have every pooch leaving milk bones out for Santa Paws.
