The Best Gifts For Dog Lovers, Pet Owners & Animal Lovers

If you’re having a ruff time finding the best gifts for the dog lover in your life, we’ve got you covered!

Our ultimate gift guide for pet owners includes some unique gift ideas that dog lovers or even animal lovers, in general, will simply adore.

Everyone has heard the saying, “Dogs are man’s best friend”, but what people may not realise is that research shows this to be pretty accurate!

Modern science in all its glory has shown that most humans love their pet dogs in the same way as they do their family members. The same hormone called oxytocin (which plays a key role in triggering feelings of love, protectiveness and affection), spikes in both human and canine brains when a dog is gazing at its owner.

Dogs have been around humans for approximately 15,000 years according to researchers, so dogs have been man’s best friend for a long time- proving their loyalty that bit more!

Not only does science back this up, but our society does too! The internet is littered with adorable videos of puppies and dogs, and a whole host of new vocabulary used to describe our furry friends such as ‘doggos’, ‘puppers’, ‘woofers’, ‘floofy boys’ and ‘pupperinos’.

Good Housekeeping

Dogs are intuitive, protective, never judgemental, loyal and super loving, and for most people the bond with their dog is pretty strong. That’s why buying a dog-related gift for a dog owner is a great idea! Both the owner and the dog can enjoy the gift.

Since so many people are dog-obsessed, it’s very likely that you have at least one dog lover in your life who you need to buy a gift for.

Our ultimate gift guide is sure to help you track down the paw-fect gift, so check out our gift ideas for dog lovers below!
