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.

Gifts to show the world you love your fur-baby
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.
While you don’t want to tell the world your doggie’s name (we don’t want to give strangers information they don’t need), you can display your love for your pup with these doggie decals.
Gifts that make it easy to take your dog in the car
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.

Santa loves our pets too!
I’m sure there are some who think it’s silly to buy gifts for the dog…but who cares. Those of us who consider our pets to be part of the family want to be sure they’re not left out. In fact, we’ve added two stockings to our collection…one for Sunny, and one for Demitri. We wouldn’t want Santa to forget about them!
