Gift Guide for Dog Parents

Check out this gift guide for dog parents to help you with great gifts for the holidays and beyond.

One of the coolest parts of what I do for a living is that I get to see a ton of dog and dog lover products throughout the year. I travel to pet industry trade shows, talk to the inventors of pet products, and I get news alerts on the very latest for dogs and dog parents.

Whether you are shopping for a dog mom, dog dad, or perhaps a gift for yourself, this gift guide will help you with some fabulous finds that make for unique and memorable presents.

Easy to use gift guides are my favorites, so that is the goal of this guide and the others that can be found below. There are 20 gift ideas in this guide, broken out into five categories with four items in each category. We are including items from $5 bucks and those in the $200 range, too.

Custom Painting: Ryan Jordan has been “creating art” ever since he could lift a crayon. In the past few years, he’s taken it from a casual hobby to a passionate career path. Working on art and seeing it completed brings Ryan great joy and satisfaction. There’s always a dog or a cat nearby during this process, usually interrupting him for some affection. His artwork is spot on and will make a treasured keepsake. Check out the portraits or the mini paintings he can do of your dog. Here’s a sample of his lovely work below and a link for you to purchase.

Memorial Gifts for Dog Parents

Don’t forget the dog parent on your list whose dog has crossed to the Rainbow Bridge. It is particularly difficult at the holidays for those who have lost a dog, no matter if the passing occurred this year or not. A dog mom or dog dad will certainly appreciate a caring remembrance of their beloved dog. Here are a few ideas:

A Forever Treasured Customized Keepsake: Lucy Francis Maloney is a genius in creating miniature dog sculptures. With the help of German glass eyes as well as fine alpaca, cashmere, silk, and wool, she brings miniature pets to life. She knows the miniature is complete when she sees the distinct spark of life in the replica’s eye. I know because Lucy has sculpted both of my Cocker Spaniels, and her work is breathtaking. She will work with you in creating a treasured piece of art you will cherish of your dog. The miniature dogs are soft with some flexibility – never breaking and happy to get in any pose. Lucy’s unusual technique, acquired over many years, allows her to offer to you a reality in a miniature sculpture you will find hard to believe. Her animals are soft sculptures not needle felted. She never use pastels or paint every piece is 100% natural fiber for fur and accents.
