It’s gifting season again. We recently surveyed pup parents asking them about their gifting habits to get an idea of what dogs might be unwrapping this year. The short version: People love spoiling their dogs. 

Here are some key takeaways:

  • Pup parents gift monthly: 93% of customers gift their dogs at least once a month.
  • It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Christmas is the #1 special occasion for giving gifts to dogs whether it is from a pet parent (77%) or from family and friends.
  • Special occasions rule: 36% of respondents have special holiday or birthday traditions with their dogs.
  • Dogs are on the household budgets: Pup parents’ highest monthly expenses for their dogs are food (62% spend over $50), medical care (39% spend over $50), and gifts/treats (23% spend over 50).
