As pet lovers, we know that the most thoughtful gifts revolve around... no surprise, our pets! That's why we've put together a pet gift guide for you to shop from this holiday season.
And of course, as a Los Angeles small business ourselves, we were sure to include some of our favorite Los Angeles businesses and products.
We've also included online shopping options, so that you can still gift the thoughtful presents you'd like to without having to run to the store.

Unique Los Angeles Pet Gifts
We love to support our local community, but we have to admit, it sure is easy to do so when Los Angeles has some of the most amazing and unique pet-friendly products and places! Here are some great gift ideas for the pets or pet lovers you know and love!
The Dog Bakery
Needless to say, Los Angeles dogs sure have it made! With 4 Los Angeles locations (and even a kiosk at LAX!), The Dog Bakery is the perfect place to pick out a celebratory item for your dog.
Whether you want to grab a dog birthday cake, holiday treat, or something sweet just because, there are so many adorable options to choose from. Plus, you can customize your order. That way, any allergy-prone dogs get to join in the fun, too!
And good news! You can also order goodies online and have them shipped to your recipient's door! What a fun surprise for a favorite pet in your life!
P.S. If your pup is the lucky recipient of The Dog Bakery goodies, be sure to snap a picture, and send it our way! You can also tag us in the photo on Instagram @petprogo
The CatCafe Lounge
The CatCafe Lounge is a cat lover's paradise! The CatCafe Lounge is a place to socialize with adoptable cats. Head to their outside, enclosed Catio to meet adoptable cats in a relaxed setting.
In non-COVID times, the CatCafe Lounge also features a cafe so that you can enjoy a freshly brewed coffee while meeting all of the cats.
Visits to the CatCafe Lounge are by reservation only. Snag a reservation for your favorite cat lover or grab them a gift certificate so that they can book their spot.
Obviously, we hope that everyone that visits this amazing cat haven adopts a precious feline of their own, but even a visit alone is beneficial for these cats as they learn proper socialization and get more comfortable with humans.
1736 S Sepulveda Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90026
P.S. The CatCafe Lounge also sells some merchandise for all of the cat pawrents out there! Check out their online shop for a funny gift this holiday season.
Two words you might never expect to hear together - Kombucha Dog offers raw, authentic kombucha that also helps rescue dogs!
Every Kombucha Dog label features the photo of an adoptable dog. These labels help bring attention to dogs that are still in need of a loving home of their own.
Kombucha Dog is voted "Best in LA" when it comes to kombucha! Their authentic, undiluted kombucha is healthier due to its higher bacteria count (good bacteria for your gut) and lower sugar content. Plus, the ingredients are all hand selected and organic!
We think that some Kombucha Dog would make the perfect gift for a health-conscious pet lover out there. And who knows, maybe you'll spark an adoption story just like Steven Tyler Jr.'s!
While we urge you to shop local this holiday season, we also want to encourage you to shop small! There are so many amazing, small pet businesses out there (just like us here at PetProGo!) that could use your support after the 2020 year. Let's use this time of year as an opportunity to show some extra support for the small businesses whose products and services we love!
