The Dog Lover’s Gift Guide

The holidays are approaching, and if you have a dog lover in your life, then picking out gifts for them will be a breeze after you read this. We’ve compiled a list of the best presents that a dog person could receive this holiday season.

Custom Gifts With Your Friend’s Dog on Them

There’s a website called where you can upload an image of any pet, and they will turn that picture into a digital painting, and then print it out onto shirts, mugs, socks, canvases, tote bags, blankets – you name it.

This is a great gift idea because it will show that you went above and beyond, and your dog lover won’t be able to resist their own dog’s face on a gift! It’s a win-win.


A BarkBox Subscription

If you’re on the Internet often, then you’ve definitely heard about the BarkBox. If you haven’t, it’s a monthly subscription package filled with treats, toys and bones. Each month comes with a different theme.

On their website, you can choose to give a gift of a one-month, three-month, six-month, or 12-month subscription. They also have gift card options.

Alex and Ani Prints of Love Charm Bangle

Not only is this an adorable way to accessorize your outfits, but it’s also a way to show everyone that you love your dog more than anything.

This bracelet comes in both silver and gold, and the best part? Alex and Ani will donate 20% of each purchase of this bracelet to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).



Scout GPS & Bluetooth Tracker

This is a staple for any dog owner. The Scout attaches to the dog’s collar, and then the owner can track the dog from their smartphone at any time from anywhere.

The app will show the owner the dog’s real-time location, and the owner can even set alert zones. This means that they can set a specific location on the map in their Find My Scout app, and then they will be notified any time the Scout leaves the set zone.

Your friend will never lose track of their dog again. You can find more information and purchase one here.

ChuckIt Launcher

If you’ve been to a dog park before, you’ve definitely seen someone with this wonderful fetch device.

It’s pretty straightforward – you put the tennis ball in the pocket, and use the handle to launch the ball so your dog can run after it and bring it back to you. It just makes throwing the ball further a lot easier. This is a great gift for the dog lover in your life because it’s useful, and it’s also very affordable.



Custom Dog Name Sterling Silver Rings

This Etsy shop creates custom itty bitty rings with names on them, and they’re adorable. If your dog lover has multiple dogs, the rings are small enough to stack on top of each other.




If you’re looking for something a little more hardcore than the ChuckIt, the HurriK9 is the way to go. It comes with multiple rings that “work great even for dogs that aren’t good retrievers.” This toy can be used indoors and outdoors, and you can control the distance of the shot by varying how far you pull back.
