If you already own a dog, then you know it’s easier to buy things – both necessary and frivolous – for your pet than it is for members of your biological family. There’s just something about dogs—especially working dogs. They give themselves without expectation of a return. They retrieve, they stay, they come when called, they accompany you in all sorts of weather, and the best of them help gather wild, winged protein. Sure, sometimes they may eat the stray sock or growl at the neighbors, but that’s a small sacrifice for a lifetime of service. Here are some ways you can reward your dog this season for all the joy, giggles, and recreation (okay, and a measure of aggravation) they provide the rest of the year.
