After months of our children begging us for a dog, and much consideration, we brought home our Bella (a Bichon Frise / Toy Poodle mix). Though I can say having a dog has been a ton of work, she has definitely become a beloved member of our family! Finding all of the essentials has been a journey of trial and error, however we've finally found some wonderful item's, that in our opinion are absolute essentials for dog owners. All of these item's would make the perfect gifts this Holiday season!
A Little Bit About The Martha Steward Pets Double Feeder Dog Bowl
Made of non-skid melamine & stainless steel. Air-seal lid keeps food fresh & portable. Durable, light weight stainless steel bowl keeps liquids cooler longer. Shaped hand-grip makes bowl easier to pick up & put down w/ fewer spills.
The Martha Stewart Pets collection has become my go-to brand when it comes to finding essentials and accessories for Bella that look great, are the very best quality, and look great in our home. The double feeder dog bowl has been perfect. It looks great, and allows us to feed her and then cover whatever food/water she doesn't use with the included silicone lids (wonderful for maintaining freshness and decreasing waste).

A Little Bit About Savvy Rest
Savvy Rest is at the forefront of the growing natural mattress industry. Savvy Rest Organic Mattresses are made in central Virginia and available through a national network of independently owned stores. Savvy Rest’s mission and products were developed in response to mounting concerns about the toxic chemicals used in most conventional mattresses.
Savvy Rest Organic Mattresses are made of natural latex rubber, certified organic wool and certified organic cotton. The Savvy Rest bedding line includes organic mattress toppers, sheets, mattress pads, and pillows.
Because Bella is fairly well behaved, she sleeps in our bedroom at night in her very own bed that she absolutely loves! She enjoys it so much she won't sleep anywhere else! She will actually go upstairs to our bedroom during the day to lay in her own bed rather than just climb on the sofa or sleep on the floor. I love that the cover removes from the bed (available in natural or black color choices) and because it's flat, I can simply run the vacuum over it to give it a quick cleaning in between washes. The Savvy Rest pet bed in my opinion is an absolute essential for dog owners.
A Little Bit About The RuffGrip Dog Leash
The last leash you may ever own. Wet or dry, your hands won't slip. No more leash burn. Will not crack or get stiff in extreme cold temperatures. A 6 foot leash for big dogs. It uses a large clip and is 3/4" wide.
After going through more than one retractable leash, and losing my grip on the Nylon replacement leash that we picked up, the RuffGrip Dog leash has been heavenly! It's incredibly sturdy, made of the finest materials. The brass clip, and leather components ensure that this easy to grip leash is built for endurance!
A Little Bit About Iams Naturals
Just what your dog needs to be healthy inside. Iams believes that nutrition matters, naturally. That’s why our animal nutritionists designed 6 holistic Iams Naturals recipes with just what your dog needs for lifelong health. Each ingredient is chosen because of its nutritional purpose. Which means we leave out fillers and artificial preservatives, colors, and flavors.
We have been Iams fan's from our first visit to the Vet, where we were given a welcome kit that included an Iams sample and were instructed by the Vet that it was the very best choice for our dog's dietary needs. She loves the Iams Naturals, and we love knowing that it's providing all of the nutrients that she needs to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
