Gift Ideas For Dog Parents Who Love Their Dogs

Let’s talk about gifts for dog lovers. Dog moms and dads do not get enough credit for the work they do, just like parents of little people. To buy a treat for your favorite dog parent, you do not need to know their dog. When buying gifts for dog lovers, you can choose to buy a gift for the dog itself, (like a knit sweater) or something for the owner (like warm gloves for early morning winter walks.)

If you decide to buy for the dog parents’ doggo itself, consider a few ‘need-to-know’ pieces of information you will need to source. Things like the dog’s age, size, weight, and temperament all contribute to buying the right gift for a dog.

gifts for older dogs

Gift Ideas for Aging Dogs

If you’re buying for a dog that is getting on in age, it is easy to spoil them with treats. Let’s refrain from that, and let’s aim to make the dog’s life easier and more comfortable with things like walking strollers, cushy plush beds, stairs for the bed or sofa, and electric warming blankets.

Often older animals have trouble grooming themselves, so items like brushes, gloves, and other beauty items are helpful. Consider dog-specific (do NOT buy human shampoo!) shampoo and conditioner bathing sets and other grooming tools. If the dog is not as active as it once was, clipping tools might be a wise gift.

If you decide you do want to treat the older dog, buy an interactive toy that can hold peanut butter – the dog can lounge and lick at this for hours.

Gift Ideas for Young Dogs

Young dog gifts might be a little less specific than gifts for older pups, but let’s be honest: the market is saturated with dog products. Young dogs are active and often require more attention than older dogs. They need to be kept busy and burning energy!

Easy options for younger dogs include long extendable leashes, vests, walking and training vests; training resources such as books; and interactive toys like interactive puzzle food trays, interactive treat balls, and peanut butter toys.

Gifts for Dog Parents

There are plenty of other choices for gifts for the dogs: clothes, bling, bandanas, kennels and bedding, feeding and watering systems, treadmill, kiddie pool to cool off in warm weather.

Other miscellaneous items that might be helpful for dog moms and dog dads include choices like reference books, portraits, booties for cold weather, travel items for day or road trips, portable dog baths for summertime, shower head wand for easy bathing. The useful items to help out with pet dogs is countless.
