dog personalized unique gift guide

As a dog owner and foster dog mom, my favorite gifts are always anything to do with dogs. The most unique gifts I’ve received are personalized with my dogs’ breed or name has an image of a dog or is or even toys for my dogs.

I love gifts that are unique and thoughtful, and if it has a dog on it, I want it!

Just a side note to my friends and family, use this shopping list to buy my birthday, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day gifts!

Amazon and The Animal Rescue Site Store are my go-to online shopping sites for dog related gifts. If you search Dog Lovers Gifts on Amazon, you can spend days searching for the perfect gift… so I’ve done the searching for you and hand-picked the top-selling, top-rated, most-loved, unique and personalized gifts for dog owners.


The Animal Rescue Site Store donates for every purchase to feed shelter animals. If buying any of these items as a gift, I recommend, adding a short hand-written note letting the receiver that their gift help feeds xxx number of shelter animals.

Kong Flyer/Frisbee

We have a black Kong flyer and I have to admit I was a little skeptical when my husband bought this. It’s soft and very flexible so I wasn’t sure if it would actually fly, but it does and very well in fact. I love this because it is soft. Our lab, Bear, plays hard and I worry about the hard plastic frisbees cutting his mouth. With this soft Kong flyer, he can catch it and pick it up easier than any other frisbee we’ve had. Plus, because it’s a Kong, it is virtually indestructible, unlike the cheap hard plastic frisbees.
