Best Dog Gifts For Dogs and Dog Owners

Updated on September 25, 2014

Best Dog Gifts For Dogs and Their Owners

Besides the usual squeaky toy this and tennis ball that, there are plenty of unique and interesting gifts out there that any dog or dog owner would welcome. The trick for getting the perfect dog gift is to think creatively and think FUN! Most dog owners are used to those run-of-the-mill dog toys that you see at the big pet stores, so if you're trying to wow someone with a dog-related gift, think outside the dog toy box! These dog gifts are both creative and totally useful!

This flexible silicone dog treat pan is the perfect gift for any Martha Stewart wannabe. Included with the product are a variety of recipes for all-natural dog treats to keep Fido plenty happy for years to come! If you thought making homemade dog bones was to difficult or too time's time to rethink because making healthy treats is as simple as mixing a few ingredients, pouring them in the treat pan bones and baking. The pan makes a great gift, but so does giving out homemade dog treats wrapped up in a pretty ribbon - talk about a wow factor!

Pup Casso Painting Kit for Dogs

Pup-Casso is about one of the most unique dog gifts one could possibly find. It's a painting kit where dogs actually create a real painting on a canvas using their paws. The sure-to-be masterpiece can then be hung and framed within the family estate. I think bragging rights are in order when the family dog begins painting his or her own works of art. Just sayin'.

Ugg Boots for Dogs? How Very Hollywood.

There is absolutely no good reason why dogs can't get in on the latest in footwear fashion right alongside us humans. So, with that sort of thinking it only seems natural that dogs would be prancing around town in their very own set of Ugg boots (called Pugz), on their way to Starbucks for some sparking water of course. Ah yes, to be a dog...

Know of a dog who's afraid of thunderstorms, fireworks, being left alone or even the often-feared shadow? A thoughtful gift for any skittery pooch is the Tee Bone Anti-Anxiety Dog Pillow. The concept is quite simple; the dog's owner inserts a pre-worn t-shirt into the Tee Bone and the pillow releases the comforting scent as the dog cuddles up to the Tee Bone pillow. The Tee Bone Anti Stress Pillow offers comfort and security to a dog who is feeling anxious, thereby relieving the dog's stress. If you are looking for browning points with an anxious dog's owner, this is the thoughtful dog gift to get.
