I for one love gift baskets. They’re unique and contain all my favorite things. So when given a few dog gift baskets last month, I realized this is the perfect gift.
But dog gift baskets need to be personalized and not just randomly assembled. They need to have everything your average dog and human needs and we’re here to help.
For that reason, we’ve put together a compendium of dog treats and accessories that make the ideal gift.
