Giving the Gift of Love and Cuddles for Christmas 2020

December 16, 2020

There is little that can rival the excitement of seeing a box wiggle and squeak under the Christmas tree for kids and adults alike. To make it the best Christmas gift you’ve ever given (or received), take a few tips from us on how to make it successful.

What is the lifestyle of the recipient? Apartment? House? Country or city? Work? School and other activities? 

The considerations mentioned above are only a few of those you would think about when planning a pet present. If your lifestyle, time, and finances afford it, should you think about giving two animals? Take a look at this list of what to consider.

  1. Is the pet for an adult or a child?
  2. What is your living space like? Apartment or home?
  3. Do you travel a lot or work from home?
  4. Are there adequate finances to ensure the new pet’s safety and health?
  5. Does anyone have allergies?
  6. Do you have adequate time to supervise and train a pet?
  7. Are you a first-time owner?
  8. What kind of pet do you want?

After carefully examining all the factors that impact your decision, finding the right pet is next on the list. There are basically three ways to give a pet as a gift.

  1. Enlist the recipient’s help deciding on the right pet.
  2. Buy a pet as a surprise.
  3. Give a gift certificate for a pet.

Once you’ve determined how you are going to go about this monumental task, get started early. You don’t want to wait until the last minute when you are rushed and don’t have time for a considered purchase.

  1. Puppy or kitten?
  2. What breed?
  3. What gender?

The timing is the next issue. Ideally, you will have had the pet vetted before giving it to the recipient, but if not, making an appointment with a veterinarian within 3 days of purchase is often required by the seller. Even if it isn’t, making sure the pet is healthy is the most important step you can take.

Other gifts to accompany the big one.

For puppies:

  1. Food
  2. Collar
  3. Leash
  4. Bed
  5. Pet crate
  6. Food and water bowls
  7. Toys
  8. Grooming tools

For kittens

  1. Food
  2. Break-away Collar
  3. Pet carrier

So now you’ve made the decision; where do you go for all the things this will entail? One prime location to get it all is Petland.com. Petland maintains the highest standards both in the puppies it sells as well as the plethora of products to take the best care of the new pet you’ve chosen.

Petland also has all the supplies you’ll ever need, nutritional necessities, to behavioral training accessories, to maintenance needs, and even to environmental needs. Petland is the place Santa Claus goes to reward all the good kids with puppies that will warm their hearts and wiggle their little tails into your family’s life from day one.

Petland’s Credit Card. Rather than having to lay out all the money at once, charging your purchases on the Petland Credit Card helps spread out the initial costs so you can enjoy your new friendship without a huge financial outlay. Then, throughout the puppy’s lifetime, you can buy what you need when you need it without hassle or stress.
