1. Dog Paw Photo Frame

This cute paw print frame hold your most treasured photographs of five of your favorite ‘good boys’ (or five different shots of your one and only).

The rustic wood background goes perfectly with all the colors and styles of your living room, the photos slip easily in and out, making rotating those pics that much easier!

A sentimental way to display your pooch’s photos after they passed, or – better yet – while they’re still here, making everyone smile!

2. Dog Travel Bag

Keep Fido’s dietary needs, snacks, poop bags, leases, harnesses, collars, water bowl (and don’t forget the toys!) all in one handy zip up travel bag.

It’s stylish and oh-so useful, whether you’re heading out for a road trip, a day at the beach, an overnight at Gramma’s, or going camping with the family. The gray fabric is easy to wipe clean and the zippered pouches are just the thing for the smaller but important items, like dog tags, toenail clippers, and socks for cold winter nights or hot pavement in the summers.

Seriously, this gift is one that they’ll keep for years and never know how they ever got along without it!

3. There’s Probably Dog Hair in Here

Let’s just be honest and keep it real here, peeps! When you have fur babies there is definitely dog hair… well, um, everywhere.

Oh well, you get used to it after a while! For your dog lovers who own the hairiest of beasts, this adorable mug is a real winner.

This would also be a sweet gift for your groomer, kennel manager, or vet assistant!

4. Custom Dog Shirt

The end result: a one-of-a-kind, soft, comfy, and simply irresistible shirt that will have everyone at the dog park wishing they had one.

Just add a nice layer of dog hair and you’re fully dressed!

5. Steel Silhouette

Such a sweet way to memorialize a pet who’s no longer with us, this steel silhouette is exceptionally eye-catching and pretty to look at.

Whether you mount it outside to reflect the light, or keep it indoors, it brings a bit of sophistication and whimsy to your home. There are lots of breeds to choose from so you won’t have any trouble matching your best boy or girl to the artist’s creation.

6. Dog Treats Jar

So cute! We just love this treats container, with its funny little rump up in the air, and its clean, white lines. Whether your doggy loves biscuits, jerky, or peanut butter snaps, you need an adorable place to store them, that will blend in with your kitchen items, and will still make sure your guests know it’s not a cookie jar.

At least, not for them.

7. Photo Dog Pillow
