This pet odor exterminator candle helps eliminate the stench for a perpetually fresh and clean smelling home and work environment. Usually made of paraffin, soy wax, or essential oils, these candles are available in a wide variety of scents such as apple, citrus, honeydew, pineapple, and more!
7. Dog Water Bottle
Ideal for those who like to hike, exercise, or travel with their dogs. Available in a variety of materials and sizes, you should know what to look for when looking for the right one to give. It should be portable, compact, leak-proof, and suitable for the environment that the dog and their parent live in. Stainless steels pose no health risks, are durable and dishwasher safe but they tend to heat up pretty quickly so it's not ideal for hot climates. Plastic bottles meanwhile are a cheap option and also dishwasher safe. Just make sure they are BPA free!
