Unleash the Joy of the Season with the Ultimate Ugly Dog Hunting Holiday Gift Guide!

The holiday season is upon us, and time is running out to get the perfect gift for your Ugly Dog loving friends, family, and canines! At Ugly Dog Hunting, we understand the passion and dedication that goes into having exceptional bird dogs and the joy that comes from incredible bird hunts. That’s why we’ve curated the ultimate holiday gift guide to make this season unforgettable for the hunters and trainers you care about.

1. Show their love of Ugly Dogs: Anyone with an Ugly Dog loves to tell everyone how wonderful their dog is, help spare their voice by getting them Ugly Dog Gear. We have our classic short and long-sleeve t-shirts, zip-up hoodies, and blaze pullovers all with the Ugly Dog logo ready for your Ugly Dog lover. We also have multiple versions of hats, including the new Watch Cap style to keep them warm, and also have plenty of branded Stormy Kromers to defend against the elements in style. 

2. Better dog handling through technology: We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, the single biggest game-changer in the last several years of bird dog technology is a Garmin watch paired with a GPS tracking collar. Perhaps they’re already set up with a tracking system? Help them accessorize and keep track of each collar with our new, made in the USA Full Tilt Replacement Straps

3. Peet Boot Dryers: No one likes wet, cold boots. But, sometimes our Ugly Dogs take us to places wet and swampy and even the best waterproofing can’t hold up. Thankfully, we have just the gadgets for warm, dry boots the next day. For the constant traveler, try the Power Cell Travel Dryer. Or, for those sticking close to home, the classic Advantage Dryer will have things aired out in no time. 

4. Comfort meets Purpose: A good hunt requires good clothing. It’s impossible to stay focused on the task at hand when the elements are sucking all the brainpower away. The Isolation Pullover is your best defense against the elements. With wind and waterproof fleece, this hoodie is warm and cozy and keepsIsolation Pullover in the Field attention where it should be, on the dog and the birds taking flight. 

Honorable mention: The Gamehide Fenceline Jacket and Upland Pants (don’t forget the Sierra’s for the women) present a quality option for a day afield at a price point that won’t make you frown when you get a little bird blood or dog slobber on them. 

5. What about the dog?? Don’t tell us we’re the only ones who get the dogs a gift or two, or twelve this holiday season! Even the toughest trainers and hunters among us slip a bit of fried chicken or a cheese square to their Ugly Dog (shhhh. Never Spoil Your Ugly Dog.) With that in mind, what are you doing to keep them comfortable? Help them stay warm with a Mud River Kennel Cover. Keep them cozy and well-rested on the road with a Crate Cushion. Looking for something to do it all? The Rivers West Dog Blanket and Puppy Blanket are some of our best sellers and multi-functional. Keep them from growling at Santa when he comes down the chimney, make sure there is a present under the tree for them, too. 

Have the best year ever with your bird dog and want to go big? The Memory Foam Fleece Dog Bed is top notch. It’s so comfortable we’ve caught staff sleeping in them from time to time. 

6. Personal Choice: Can’t decide? Let them choose! Our Ugly Dog Hunting Gift Certificates are the perfect way to ensure your loved ones get exactly what they want. Give the gift of choice and convenience this holiday season. Their dogs will thank you for the extra reason to shop for them! 

This holiday season, spread cheer and show your appreciation for the bird hunters, dog trainers, and Ugly Dog lovers in your life with thoughtful gifts from Ugly Dog Hunting. Our carefully curated selection is designed to enhance their outdoor experiences and make this holiday season one to remember. Happy hunting, and may your celebrations be filled with joy and adventure!
