Mother’s Day is upon us – a day where we celebrate the selflessness and love of mothers everywhere, and dog moms are no exception.
So, why not give a dog mom in your life something special this year?
There are a plethora of dog mom gifts out there, but we looked beyond the basic hoodies, T-Shirts, and coffee mugs to find something sure to please.
Without further ado, here’s our list of unique gifts to honor the best dog mom you know – even if that dog mom is you!
Dog mom gifts for the techie
Bell potty training is an effective way to teach your dog to alert you when they need to go out. This bell is wireless and comes with two receivers. Your pooch bumps the inside receiver when they need to use the bathroom, and bumps the outside receiver to alert you when they’re done. Go about your business while they finish up theirs. The bell lets you know when to let them back inside.
Does the dog mom in your life struggle to take selfies with their pooch? This gift will solve that problem! The ball-obsessed dog or the food-motivated dog will love this selfie stick. You can choose which motivational object you need and snap away. This gift will help your dog mom get the perfect selfie every time.
The Pet Pilot smart leash allows dog moms to track dog walking routes, distance walked, time walking, and even gives you the ability to share your routes with friends through its smartphone app. When walking in the dark, the seven colors and three lighting modes give you ample light and improved visibility. The leash is a USB quick charge requiring no batteries and fast charging time. This smart leash also contains a built-in capsule for poop bags.
Custom pet portraits are popular but consider this handy alternative. The fur baby mom in your life can carry an image of their canine BFF with them wherever they go in this tiny key-chain projector. Upload the image of your choice to look at whenever you miss your pup or feel compelled to share your dog’s beautiful face with others. Look into the stone on the charm, or project the image onto your smartphone for viewing.
We all wish our dogs could tell us what they want – and now they can! The Hunger For Words Talking Dog Starter Set helps you teach your dog how to talk! It comes with four recordable communication buttons and a training manual. Never guess what your dog is communicating again. More buttons are available on Amazon or Chewy if your dog mom wants to teach her dog more words.
Does the dog mom on your list have a loveable mutt? She might be wondering what breeds shine through in her dog’s personality and health traits. A DNA test can help answer her questions with one easy-to-administer test kit. If you want to know more about DNA tests, check out our blog on the best dog DNA tests.
The best gift any dog mom can get? Peace of mind when her fur baby gets sick or hurt. Turns out this is possible with the help of dog insurance. From surprise illnesses and behavioral issues to unexpected surgeries and medications, so much can happen when you least expect it. Having an insurance plan, like a Pumpkin plan, that covers 90% of eligible vet bills is the gift that keeps on giving.
