Miami Local Holiday Gift Guide for Dogs and Cats

Christmas presents for dogs and cats

Miami’s Best Holiday Gift Guide for Pets: Include your dogs and cats in the holiday fun this year!

We’ve asked our dog walkers and cat sitters to contribute their ideas of a perfect holiday present for your dogs and cats this holiday. There are many options online, of course, but we’re partial to supporting fellow local, small businesses making it happen in Miami. Miami has plenty of great companies ready to supply the perfect gift for your pet. Read on for our fab finds!

1. Pooch Perks- dog treats and toys in Miami: is a monthly treat and toy box for pups based in South Florida. The company seems to source the items in the USA, and the owners test each treat and toy on their 7 dogs. It’s very popular, up and coming, and a very cool gift for the nice (ok, and even naughty) dogs in your life.  The treats are made in the United States and are mostly Natural, Organic, Non-GMO, and Gluten Free (even the pups have jumped on that bandwagon!). The treats are so natural and healthy that they’re safe for human consumption, according to the company website. We love that they do their best to source their treats from socially-aware companies. The toys are another great perk, as all toys are tested for fun, safety, and durability by the owner’s five large dogs and are held to the same standards of safety as children’s toys. You can purchase the subscription online at:

2. Pet’s Best: If you’re located closer to the south of Miami, Pet’s Best is the boutique for you. Owner Billy and his employees specialize in personalized service and great insight into your pups’ and kitties’ needs. A veterinarian friend of ours once told us ” you can pay more for food now or more in vet bills later.” The impending New Year is the perfect time to invest in great, quality food and your pets’ health. Lucky for you, Pet’s Best is running a Christmas sale on treats, supplements, and food the whole month of December, including quality treats from Fromm and Primal, and Weruva dog food. Kitties are included in the action with specials on Nature’s Logic and Raw2.

3. MyDog: Our pups love bath time at MyDog! The friendly staff and delicious suds (ask for the blueberry face mask) are a huge part of the appeal. Located in Pinecrest, MyDog offers pick ups for those within a certain area, as well as cute custom-made dog beds, chic collars and leashes, and an assortment of spa products for your pampered pooch. Gift cards are available!

4. Date night with your pooch at Lokal Burgers and Beer! Recently voted as the top restaurant in Coconut Grove, Lokal offers a delicious dog-friendly menu in addition to putting out fresh doggy biscuits and water for doggie passersby, as well as non-alcoholic beer so your pooch can join you in toasting to life, love, and health! We love that this restaurant provides tasty meals for our four-legged compadres and comadres, and are also thrilled with their dedication to sourcing food locally and to sustainable energy use. Try them out and let us know what you think!

5. Donating to a dog or cat rescue: Does your pet have everything s/he needs? Many people take the holidays as a time to give to those less fortunate than they are. Maybe your dog and cat want you to support a local rescue this year! There are so many animals in need in Miami, and many deserving animal rescues. We’ve included a list of local rescues that would greatly appreciate donations!
