VE Raw Bar’s single-sourced proteins provide the perfect boost to your doggie’s diet.

With choices like duck feet and bully sticks, your dog can have a variety of nourishing snacks.”

Customizable Cookies and Cakes

The Doggy Bag, Destin

If we’re stuffing our faces with cookies and cakes this winter, it’s only fair man’s best friend does, too. Customize a homemade “Pup Cake” or dog biscuit with your buddy’s name. Each snack is made with peanut butter and yogurt and covered in carob (a dog-friendly chocolate substitute).

I’d Rather Be With My Dog Treats & Sweet-centric Toys

EarthWise Pet Supply, Panama City

“I’d Rather Be With My Dog treats are the first entirely paleo line of dog treats to be on the market — nothing processed, no wheat/corn/soy/dairy, and entirely based on REAL, natural food,” says Kellie O’Brien of Earthwise Pets. “All of the protein is high quality meat and there is coconut oil in every single variety to benefit your dog’s skin, coat, insulin sensitivity, and digestive health.” Soft and squeaky Lulubelles toys are lined with extra mesh to ensure hours of fun for your energetic pup. If your dog is like mine and eats anything remotely plush for breakfast, durable Goughnuts are your best bet to keep him entertained while the rest of the family opens presents.
