"Mom, Dad, what did you get me this time around?"
These gift ideas will have your dog jumping into their presents before you've had the chance to hand it over. They are also great for those who don't own any pets and would like to gift their dog owner friends. You may be thinking, what if they already have that, or I don't know if their dog would love this, but these 5 gift ideas are proven to surprise and delight every time. To make your shopping easier, focus on the concept and not the exact item listed unless it's our Expedition Fanny Pack because there's nothing out there like it!
These gift ideas include the following:
1. Custom Sweater
This is not your regular dog sweater, Sweater Hound will make sure to get the exact look of your dog onto the sweater. If you want the person to beam with happiness, this tops our gift ideas. This is perfect for the colder season, especially with winter coming up, it's a great way to layer your clothing but also wear something that is uniquely made for you. This could also be another way to show our dogs how much we love them.
Are you or the person you're gifting new to walking their dog? Then make sure to read our Beginner's Guide to Dog Walking and stay layered up for the winter!Valued at $128
2. Treat Tossing Camera
If you want to get fancy and technological, then the Turbo Treat Tossing Camera is a fair game. Not only does this allow the owner to interact with their pet while they're away from home, but it does offer two-way audio! You can treat your dog at any time, no matter where you are!
That also allows you to see how your dog is behaving while you're gone. Their behaviour and actions can tell us much more than we think. If that's something you want to learn more about, check out our blog Behaviours to Look Out For in Your Puppy.Valued at $164.95
3. Expedition Fanny Pack
This is the bag sent from heaven, why? Because it's not a regular fanny pack like the rest. This was designed with the owner in mind. It has a double-side adjustable belt, a removable pouch inside the main compartment, a hook attachment for hanging the leash, a built-in poop dispenser, and a zippered front pocket for treats and small essentials. You can't tell me that didn't get you excited. If you want to win their love and affection through gift-giving, then buy them the Gentle Paw fanny pack, you won't regret it.
These are available in four colours, black, grey, orange, and pink, check out the Expedition Fanny Pack.
The number one essential item that goes into this bag is poop bags! We recommend the Rover Earth Friendly Poop BagsValued at $49.99
4. Quality Harness
Don't overlook a quality harness. If you're shopping for a new dog owner, then this is for you. They're ideally used to train puppies before transitioning to walking on a leash. Not only that, but they also alleviate pressure off the puppy's neck and distribute it evenly across the chest and body. If you want to step it a notch further and add a special touch, get the harness customized with the dog's name!
At Gentle Paw, we do offer Free Tags, fill out the form and we'll be in touch!

5. DIY T-Shirt Dog Toy
Nothing more says true love than handmade gifts. Having a DIY alternative allows you to truly customize the gift for the person receiving it. This one is for anyone and everyone, the braided T-shirt Dog Toy. They can be used as a fetch toy and are easily washable without causing any damage. Do you have shirts laying around? You could either use your existing shirts or even head to your local thrift store! It's based on an easy braid concept that requires no sewing. This is the perfect gift idea for you if you're working with a smaller budget or you simply enjoy crafting your gifts.
