Dogs are part of the family, so of course, we want to include them in our holiday festivities. After all the long walks, rounds of fetch, car rides, cuddles and companionship, they deserve to feel loved and appreciated. (Plus, who could resist an opportunity to spoil them?)

So, this year, pull out all the stops with a present for the goodest boy or girl on your list. Here are the 12 best gifts for dogs and dog lovers, ranging from seasonal treats and toys to pet-friendly gadgets and apparel.

The mantel should reflect the whole family, right? Make your pup feel like a true part of the pack and surprise them with a Frisco Pet Stocking. The stocking is crafted from sumptuous velvet and features an adorable paw print, so Santa knows exactly where to leave the bones. You can even customize the cuff with your dog's name or initials.

When in doubt, give your dog what they've always wanted: The chance to be the center of attention. Make your furbaby the star of the annual family photo by dressing them in these adorable reindeer antlers. The headband secures via an elastic chin strap, and it's available in three different sizes.

Your pampered pooch will know they made the Nice List when they see this Frisco water fountain. Upgrade their basic bowl and give them 24/7 access to crisp, clean water with this high-tech hydration station. A quiet, submersible pump cycles water through multiple filters, so you can both trust that they're drinking the very best.

Consider this a gift for you and them. Peer into your pet's past and get a clearer picture of their future with a Wisdom Panel Dog DNA Test. The kit screens for 350 different breeds and ultimately gives you an idea of their genetic makeup. (And potential medical issues to look out for.) Testing is as easy as taking a cheek swab, and you'll get the results in three to five weeks.

Enjoy a little more peace on earth, courtesy of this snowflake-shaped chew toy. The toy is crafted from durable nylon and infused with peanut butter flavoring to hold their attention.
