Pups who fall in the middle of the size category are well acquainted with what “just right” means. We researched and chatted with dog parents of collies, shepherds, hounds, bulldogs (the list goes on and on) to put together 31 dog gifts that are perfect for our medium-sized pup friends.

1. BarkBox, $24.95/month


One of the best things about BarkBox is selecting the right options suitable for the lucky pup you’re gifting. That means if you’re shopping for a dog who falls right around the middle in the size category, you can start building your box by selecting “Just Right” where toys and treats are sized for 20 – 50 lb dogs. Each box comes with 2 bags of tasty treats, 2 toys, and 1 meaty chew delivered every month.

Why We Love It:

  • New treats and toys every month!
  • The gift that keeps giving
  • Tailor specifically to a medium-sized pup

2. Pizza My Heart Cookie Box, $34


The fastest way into a person’s heart is pizza, and pups are no different! We’re in love with this adorable box of dog cookies shaped into a pizza. This is the perfect gift for any dog who has been a very good boy or girl.

Why We Love It:

  • 8 unique hand-decorated pizza slice cookies
  • Made from human-grade ingredients
  • Each cookie is individually packed for sharing

3. Sven the Sweater Hedgie, $14


Who doesn’t need a sweet hedgehog in their life? Your medium-sized pup will love this super chewer toy. Sven is sweet on the outside, tough on the inside.

  • Gift an experience
  • Allows human and pup to spend time outdoors
  • Beautiful accommodations

5. WilderDog Islander Reflective Leash, $34


WilderDog’s leashes are durable enough for dogs who get excited on their walks and sometimes pull. Made of the same material as rock climbing rope, these leashes are as durable as they are stylish.

  • Reflective tape on the leashes are great for visibility in the dark
  • Locking carabiner for maximum pup security
  • The carabiner leashes are made specifically for medium dogs and larger

  • He’s got squeakers for hours of play
  • He’s stuffed with fluff for dogs who like to toss and catch
