The holidays are upon us, and if you’re shopping for the dog lover in your life, then you’ve come to the right place!
Like any pet, dogs don’t exactly have the best reputation when it comes to being green. However, dog owners can minimize their dog’s carbon pawprint by opting for environmentally friendly pet supplies!
So whether you’re an eco-conscious gift giver or shopping for a dog owner who prefers eco-friendly dog products, then you will love this gift guide which is full of environmentally friendly and non-toxic pet treats, toys and novelty gifts for owners.
Why Choose Sustainable Pet Gifts?
Many pet products today are mass produced and made from toxic, hormone-disrupting chemicals that can literally harm your pet.
Synthetic chemicals in dog toys, bedding, treats and feeding supplies are actually the culprits in a lot of skin and digestive issues that your pet may be experiencing.
So this holiday season, gift the dog owner in your life with a non-toxic and environmentally friendly pet product in lieu of, well, disposable junk. After all, pets are family and deserve the very best—especially when it comes to their health.
With that said, read on for the best eco-friendly gift ideas for dog lovers and their pets. These gifts are excellent for any occasion, and make especially wonderful Christmas gifts for eco-conscious dog owners!

Light Me When The Dog Farts Soy Candle
This soy candle is perfect gift for both a dog mom and a dog dad—and it’s absolutely hilarious because dog farts do indeed stink. This candle is 7 ounces and smells like subtle lavender. It’s ideal to give as a new puppy gift, the holidays or a housewarming gift.
Yeti Boomer Insulated Dog Bowl
Plastic pet bowls are prone to scratches which invite in bacteria—that’s why we always recommend stainless steel food and water bowls for pets. The Yeti Boomer pet bowls are awesome because they’re double wall insulated (keeps water cold longer), slip-proof, scratch resistant, dishwasher safe, durable, and non-toxic!
Ethique Bow Wow Bar Solid Shampoo Bar For Pets
I am obsessed with pet shampoo bars, and the dog lover in your life will be too! Unlike traditional pet shampoo, solid wash bars are non-toxic and hypoallergenic—leaving your dog with healthier skin and coat! Ethique has a really great line of pet shampoos, and they look fabulous as part of a gift basket!
Biodegradable Poop Waste Bags With Dispenser
There is only one clear winner when it comes to biodegradable poop waste bags, and it’s Wild One. Other brands use a chemical on their “eco” bags to eventually allow them break down, but Wild One waste bags are made from corn, and will break down naturally. This set, which comes with a dispenser, is an awesome eco-friendly gift for dog owners!
Recycled Dog Harness By EcoBex
This breathable and no-pull dog harness is made from recycled plastic bottles, and a portion of the proceeds go toward helping animals and fighting climate change. A harness is great to have on long walks, and they don’t hurt a dog’s throat, so this is a great eco-friendly gift for a dog owner!
Human Water Bottle With Detachable Dog Bowl
This eco-friendly gift is for both the dog owner and their pup—and it’s genius! This stainless steel water bottle keeps water ice cold, and contains a detachable dog bowl, allowing both to stay hydrated during walks, hikes and travels!
Natural Hemp Rope Toys For Dogs
Dogs love a good tug of war, and these natural rope toys provide them with safe rough play! Made from a blend of natural cotton and hemp, these dog toys make a great holiday gift for your dog or the dog owner in your life!
Organic Wool Dog Toys
These hypoallergenic and nontoxic New Zealand wool balls are a much safer and healthier alternative to tennis balls. They are also machine washable, and come packaged in a post-consumer recycled cardboard box. It’s a unique dog gift that any pup will love!
