As a dog who goes places, I’ve been eyeing this Mogoko carrier for the longest time. With a breathable peephole, this sturdy carrier backpack is designed to provide me with a comfortable lookout. The shoulder and waist straps are padded and adjustable, lifting the burden for my humans! While this carrier is NOT airport compliant, it is perfect for outdoor adventures and hikes with your Yorkie or small dog. Don’t forget to go for one size up for added comfort – I got an XL even though I should get a Large based on my weight. I also like to stick my paws out for the ride!
FitBark truly sounds like one of the best gifts for Yorkies or ANY dog! It’s such a fabulous tool to monitor your precious dog’s health, especially for senior dogs like me who are still chugging along but need a little more attention. In addition to its GPS tracker with exit and entry alerts, FitBark is a 24/7, around the clock health monitor. It’s essentially an Apple Watch for dogs; it monitors your dog’s physical activity, sleep cycles, and behavioral changes. It’s so lightweight that it won’t bother even a tiny 3-lb doggie. Not only is it a great tool to help increase your dog’s physical activity level, but it also helps identify if your dog is in discomfort or pain. Wag your tail to that!
GRR, with winter comes the yucky rain! ARF, I can bear getting my paws wet, but NOT my silky furry body. If your dog despises walking in the rain like me, a good quality raincoat is a MUST! Please don’t get your dog sick on rainy days – keep your furbaby as dry as possible on walks. Whether it’s a sprinkle or downpour, your dog is ready to battle the water and brush aside the rain.
WOOF, Christmas can’t come sooner! I can’t wait to get my wet nose in this goody box for X-Small/Small Dogs. This delightful holiday gift box comes with whopping FIVE hand-picked gifts for your small dog. With FOUR delicious treats, a two-in-one plushy fried eye toy, and a classic Chewy bandana – this fun bundle has so much for your dog for so little cost of $24.99+tax. Whether I’m marking it up in Italy or back home in California, I can make good use of this goody box!
Oh yea, all treats are made in the USA:
- American Journey Landmark All Natural Chicken Freeze-Dried Dog Treats
- American Journey Beef Recipe Grain-Free Soft & Chewy Snacking Sticks Dog Treats, 6-oz bag
- USA Bones & Chews Roasted Marrow Bone 3″ Dog Treat
- Bocce’s Bakery Crispies Banana & Bacon Recipe Dog Treats, 10-oz box
Get your paws on one of the hottest gifts for Yorkies and small dogs!
GRR, I HATE brushing my teeth (I don’t know a dog who doesn’t). Instead of running away from every tormenting teeth brushing session, I prefer these delicious dental chews from Ark Naturals. Gosh, I am so infatuated by the taste, smell, and texture of these cheesy chews, which help scrape away tartar and clean teeth. With that irresistible flavor, I am happy to bark NO to brushing and YES to these 4-in-1 dental treats.
I’m not a fan of wearing clothes for the heck of it or human amusement, but I do love keeping warm with some holiday sweaters during the winter. I can rock those ugly Christmas sweater parties (whether virtual or in-person) or look stylish on city strolls. As long as they’re a comfortable fit, I’ll be the first to get my paws on a warm sweater so I can feel cozy during the holidays.
As a nomadic dog who’s lives a life of country and city-hopping, I must get my furry paws on this handy collapsible travel bowl set, which will surely come in handy on outdoor adventures and travel days. This affordable bundle comes with THREE 1.5-cup travel bowls and a poop bag dispenser that includes 15 durable, leak-proof doggie bags. These BPA-free, dishwasher safe bowls can be compressed for easy storage. It’s one of the MUST-BUY gifts for Yorkies and small dogs who go places!
OK – I used to not care for balls, but I can hardly resist them these days. Well, it’s only because my human lures me with yummy treats every time I fetch the ball (I NEVER work for free). Now, I travel with my KONG balls wherever I go and crave for more! Chasing after balls is also a fun way to exercise indoors during rainy and ultra-cold days when I tend to cut my walks short.
WOOF! I may be getting older, but I am still an explorer at heart and love going out and about. For long strolls, dining experiences, or shopping trips, I’d love a stroller to give my tiny paws a break from walking. This collapsible stroller with two cup holders is the answer for Yorkies and small dogs to get the necessary rest and breaks during long outings with their humans. With security breaks, a seat belt, and a spacious carriage, Paws & Pals’ multi-functional stroller will allow me to snooze whenever I want or relax to the breeze and view AND be free from bugs and flies! Its waterproof hood also helps shield me from the sun. 🙂
As this versatile green carrier has traveled the world with me for over FOUR years now, it has also been to more countries than most humans on Earth! Not only is the Pet Gear I-GO2 carrier airport-compliant (well, most of the time since every airline may have slightly different dimensions), but it also offers adequate space for a small dog like me. I can lay down, sit comfortably, and even pass out on my back with four paws up in the air. It can be wheeled, carried as a backpack, or transported by hand. Although I do not need a new one yet, I am strongly recommending this lasting gift for all Yorkie and small dog travelers. And, if you aren’t a fan of the color green, there are other colors to choose from. 🙂
As one spoiled Yorkie, I get to travel to nearly every country or city with my humans. However, it doesn’t mean that I should go on every single outing with them upon arrival at our destination. Long outings can be taxing for small dogs like me, not to mention that some places (say, indoor tourist attractions) are NOT dog-friendly. ARF, that’s where Furbo Dog Cam comes in! My humans can keep an eye on me from afar no matter where they go. With a full HD camera, 160-degree wide-angle view (day & night), and 2-way audio, Furbo Dog Cam is arguably the best way for humans to interact with dogs virtually. Heck, humans can see, talk, and even toss TREATS to their dogs through the camera. Maybe staying at home isn’t so bad after all.
ARF, hope you and your dog like these gifts for Yorkies and small dogs! Got another gift idea for small dogs? BARK AT ME!
