What do you buy a friend or family member who has a dog? It can be hard to know what to get them for a present, especially if you’re not a dog owner yourself. So here are our top 7 gifts for dog owners, to help you out. As professional dog photographers, and dog owners, Allie and I have spoken with hundreds of dog owners, and this list has been compiled. from years of seeing these customers, the items they bring, and just generally chatting
A book to understand dog behaviour
They’ll thank you later, the owners I mean. Though maybe also their dogs. Even some of the most experienced dog owners don’t always fully understand their dogs’ behaviour. But dogs don’t usually come with a manual.
Think Dog, by John Fisher, is a fantastic book, explaining the psychology of dogs – what they expect from their owners as well as what they need. It also goes through the most common behavioural problems and explains them.
Dog water bottle
This portable water bottle made by Nobby seems really popular with dog owners. It’s incredible how many times it appears in our studio.
Dog travel bag
Travel Bags for dogs can be very useful to keep treats and poo bag’s in, you can even find some that attach to a dog harness so they can carry their own items.
Time for a shameless plug – as photographers, we don’t think that there is any better present than a dog photoshoot. This is a gift they will treasure forever. Dogs are everything to their owners. The saying goes “they give you the best days of your life and the one worst. Give them an image of their best friend that they will cherish.
Dogs of Instagram book
Number five in our top 7 gifts for dog owners is this great book of dogs from Instagram.
Dog obedience training
If someone you know has recently got a new dog or puppy then training for them is a great gift to ensure they don’t run off or destroy your sofa.
Aquapaw pet bathing shower tool
This tool is perfect to clean your pets, especially if they have been jumping around in muddy puddles
