Gift Giving Ideas for People Who Love Dogs

All of us have a friend or relative who loves their dog. They carry pictures in
their wallets or purses, take vacations with their pet and talk about them all
the time.

Buying a gift for someone who loves their dog can be daunting with all the
possibilities. Here is some help narrowing down the options available for gift giving to a pet owner.

1. Create Your Own Gift - If you are creative this is the most cost effective
way to give a gift to a dog lover. You can give a basket of dog treats, dog
grooming products or toys. If you know how to knit or sew, doggie clothes
are an original idea for gifts. Check out for free resources and patterns for making dog clothing.

2. Buy Useful Gifts - A gift certificate for a dog walking service, pet grooming
service or vet is a welcome gift. If your dog lover likes natural products there are several web sites that feature natural care products. A pet bed is another useful gift. Be sure it is large enough to hold that puppy when he grows up.

3. One of a Kind Personalized Gifts - If you have a picture of your recipient's
dog you can get a personalized pillow ortee shirt with the photo silkscreened onto the fabric.

4. Funny or Whimsical Gifts - There are many sources of funny pet related
items available on the internet; breed specific golf club covers, calendars,
coffee mugs and much more. You are only limited by your imagination and budget.

5. Books and Subscriptions - You can find both fiction and non-fiction books
about dogs in bookstores or online. Or a subscription to a magazine such as Dog Fancy would please any dog lover.

These are just a few ideas - I'm sure you can think of many more.
