We’ve had our share of fur babies through the years and they do become part of the family. Right now we don’t have a dog of our own, but we do have two grand-doggies that we adore. Naturally, some gifts for those sweet puppies are on my shopping list along with some gifts for their owners (who I’m pretty fond of as well). Here are some gift ideas for the dog lovers in your life.

The best gift for dog lovers is having your dog right with you
The first thing I want to tell you about is a service I ran across recently that helps you find your fur baby in case he somehow gets away from us. Nothing makes us more frantic than to have our four-footed friends lost and we can’t find them.
Lost My Doggie is a service that lets you register your pet (not just dogs) so that if the unthinkable happens they can help notify others that your fur-baby has gone missing. There’s a free version and a paid subscription so you can decide what best meets your needs. With 100,000+ pet reunions since 2009 that’s a lot of happy pets…and owners.
Gifts that help keep your dog healthy
Another place for you to check out to find items to care for your pet is TruDog.
In addition to toys, treats, and everything else doggie, you’ll also find items to help care for your dog’s teeth, ears, their skin, digestive health, and even their (bad) breath. Mums the word though because no self-respecting doggie needs to know that his breath is sometimes less than pleasant.
Fun gifts for the dog lover
You can let the world know you love your fur baby with this dog mom baseball cap. With several colors to choose from my personal favorite is the light blue.

This one just struck my funny bone! And the answer is “no” – if the dog is home you’re definitely not drinking alone (in case anyone wondered).

I seriously have to get a set of these for my daughter. If you use a planner (which she and I both do) and love dogs then these dog planner stickers have your name on them!
I don’t know any dog lovers who hide the fact that their pets are like family. These jewelry selections let the world know that you’re a proud pup-parent…and they’re just cute.
Gifts for the dog
My first fur baby was named Lexi and she traveled everywhere with me. I wish I’d had this pet car seat. It sure would have kept me from worrying so much that I’d hit the brakes and she’d go flying.
One of our grand-doggies is a big, beautiful Australian Heeler. Sunny is a beautiful dog and has one blue eye and one brown eye, and he’s smart as a whip. But when he’s in the car he takes up a lot of room! This backseat cover is going to make my son’s life easier (shh, don’t tell him it’s been ordered!) because he won’t have to vacuum the car as often. Sounds like a two-in-one gift to me.

If you’ve got a bigger car and your pet rides in the back, this cargo cover/floor mat would be perfect. It’s water proof too which would make it great any time your pet might be getting back into the vehicle with muddy or wet paws or fur.
You’ll find a cute assortment of dog tags at TruDog. Personally, I like the ones with little crystals because I like a little bling but there are colors and patterns to make any dog (and their owner) happy.
These collapsible water bowls will make it easier to head out for a walk or fun with your fur baby. When you stop to take a drink from your water bottle, you can pour some so your pet can take a drink too.
This pair of grooming gloves lets you love on your pup while also helping rid them of shedding hair. You’re going to cuddle and love on your baby anyway, why not keep them groomed and your house clean(er) at the same time?

Before you go be sure to sign up for the weekly email. And I’d love for you to come be part of the private Facebook group. It’s a small group where you can ask a question and get personal help – not one of those groups with hundreds or thousands of members where you get lost in the crowd.
