The PetPeek™ window is a durable, clear, hard acrylic dome 9.5 inches in diameter, with a black trim-ring and all necessary hardware for easy do-it-yourself installation into your wooden or vinyl fence. Price: $35.
Does your dog love bubbles? He will love the Bubbletastic bubble machine. The machine blows automatic bubble, saving you hours of breath, but providing plenty of fun for your pup. Best of all the bubbles are bacon scented, so your dog is sure to go crazy for the fun.
Price including shipping within USA $24.95.
SnuffleMats are a great way to stimulate your dog's foraging instincts, encouraging and developing their natural skills, help with boredom, and slow down fast eaters. They come in different sizes, with a large mat capable of holding a full kibble meal.
Unfortunately, they are also very popular and some of the main suppliers we looked at said they could not deliver before Christmas (Snufflemutt.com seems to be still able to ship for Christmas).
Nothing's better than kicking back a few with your buds, and why shouldn't dogs be allowed in on the fun? These beers are completely non-alcoholic and contain USDA beef or chicken and natural ingredients. Price: $19.99.

The Hurtta Summit Parka
This dog winter jacket is designed to complement the thermal insulation capacity of dogs - even dogs with thick and long fur need protection against the cold from time to time.
The Hurtta Summit Parka dog jacket protects your dog's most important muscle groups, chest and the sensitive abdomen area. It's quick to put on and take off and is particularly well suited for warming up the muscles of active dogs before or after training.
The Summit Parka has a water-resistant and breathable Houndtex® coating and high-visibility 3M reflectors. It comes with adjustable back length, belt and collar, re-closeable opening for harness on the back and is machine washable.
