Perfect Holiday Gift for Dog Lovers #DiscoverYourDog
This post is sponsored by Dognition. All views and thoughts expressed are that of my own.
Are you already done with your holiday shopping this year? I know I am mega guilty of only having a handful of gifts under my tree, and *maybe* 3 people crossed off my list. Our family celebrates Christmas so I like to make sure we have the perfect gifts under our tree for every member of our family (including our fur baby Beasley).
A little background info on our story pet story (before I tell you about the BEST gift idea for dog owners) is that we adopted our Beasley from West Virginia hundreds of miles away from our New England home. We found her online via a local rescue that drives pets that need new families all around the country. She was the perfect size, and breed for our family and we all LOVED her then, and love her even MORE now! She goes pretty much everywhere we go, and is just like one of the kids. These pics are from our weekend trip to the park which she loved.
Back to the fun stuff!
I am sure we can all agree that there are some people on our holiday shopping lists that are hard to buy for. They might be picky when it comes to clothing so that holiday sweater is out, maybe they have all the designer shoes, and purses one could only dream of? Cross that off the list… Then, there are the dog owners whose dogs have more clothes than myself…haha!
What in the world should we get these people?
Well, the answer is simple: Dognition
You should totally get that dog lover in your life a membership to Dognition which only costs $79 for a membership and a dog cognition assessment, or $19 for just a cognition assessment. The Dognition assessment is made up of science-based games that assess 5 core dimensions of your dog’s cognition — empathy, communication, cunning, memory, and reasoning. Dognition is a citizen science company. That means when you complete the games, your dog’s results help to advance the study of dog cognition!
- Identify which training approaches may be best suited based on your dog’s learning style Helps you connect with your dog on a deeper level and helps reduce frustration with behavior that may seem puzzling,
- Identify activities that are best suited to your dog’s cognitive style such as social activities – therapy dog work; working activities – scent work; enrichment activities-games, toys, etc.
- Offers a novel, high-quality bonding activity to do with your dog.
This is the BEST holiday gift for dog lovers because it provides valuable insight into how your dog thinks, and why they behave the way they do. It also provides a wonderful bonding experience for pet owners, and of course their cherished dogs. Plus, it gives dog owners a unique experience and that cannot just be bought at any store.

This holiday season, keep in mind that stuff gets old, fades, and eventually ends up in the trash. By gifting Dognition, your recipient can truly discover the genius in their dog, and gain a whole new understanding on how their dog thinks. A Dognition membership is affordable and their site is consistently updated with new games and information to keep you, and your dog bonding on a whole new level.
No wonder she is so friendly and loving to everyone who walks through my doors. It was fun to see how she did on treat games, and how well-trained she was to not just take a treat without permission. Learning the why behind her actions gave me such insight into my little fur baby’s world.
Since my little Chiweenie cannot speak and tell us why she does certain things, Dognition has opened my eyes to the intriguing dog world, and given me more patience with my pup when it comes to learning new tricks. I also learned just how playful my pup is. I cannot remember the last time that I sat and played with her, so I am thankful that Dognition allowed me to bond at her level. Dognition was super mentally stimulating for our dog which is great because we all know Chihuahua breeds love to be warm, and sleep all day!
