  1. Hi Jenny, I really loved your article about Mother’s Day Gifts for Dog Lovers. While devoid of dogs myself, I do have a very dear friend who is a Dog Mom to two Chihuahuas who she is passionate about. Your suggestions for Dog Mom Gifts are very creative, and I am definitely considering getting one of them for my friend. Thanks so much for sharing this unique idea.

    • Hi Jenni,

      I am sure your friend would be very appreciative of any of these gifts.  Giving her a dog mom gift is a very thoughtful and kind gesture that she will likely remember for years to come.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.


  2. For me, Mother’s day always seems to be one of those annual events that just creep up on you and before you know it, it’s been another year passed already. However, it’s good to see something a little bit different than the usual Mother’s Day Mugs and Cards etc. As a dog lover, I’m always interested in stuff like this even though I no longer have my boy (he passed a couple of years ago), but I’m pretty sure I’ll have another four-legged friend in the near future. So keep them coming. This stuff’s great.



    • Hi Kev,

      I’m glad you enjoyed this list of gift ideas.  Mother’s Day is really approaching fast, time sure does fly!  I am sorry to hear of your dog’s passing, they are such wonderful companions and when they are no longer with us, our hearts and homes feel so empty.  I’m happy to hear you will soon be adding another four-legged friend to your family.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts,


  3. Jenny, 

    I absolutely love the idea of getting dog Moms a Mother’s Day gift. I personally have two grown children and by far my Aussie is more of a challenge than they ever were. 

    So, those dog moms out there that are loving their pups certainly could use a gift once in a while. I love the doggie paw print mug you have on there and the pillow was adorable. I think any dog mom would appreciate such a gift.

    Who doesn’t enjoy a great graphic tee or even a hoodie? You have put together a great selection for those doggie obsessed moms.

    Was wondering though, would you happen to have a link to any gift ideas that are Aussie specific?

    • Hi Apersinger,

      I am so glad you enjoyed this post.  I must say that I am not surprised that your Aussie is more of a challenge than your 2 children were.  Dogs can be a handful, to say the least, and in many ways, they act just like children.  

      There are a lot of great gift ideas that are specific to Aussie moms like yourself.  Here is a link that you can check out to get some ideas.

      Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate you taking the time to comment.


  4. My wife and I own TWO amazing dogs, one is a golden-doodle and the other is a sheep-a-doodle. They’re very important family members to us and they bring us so much joy.

    In fact, I really like the idea of the dog mug for mother’s day because she already proudly wears a doodle mom hat. So I feel this type of gift would be great because she could keep it in her classroom while she teaches.

    Another gift that I think she would get a kick out of is the Room for One More Dog Sign because she’s always joking about getting a 3rd dog haha…

    If I were to pick just one between those two which should I pick?

    Thanks in advance for your response!

    • Hi Josh, 

      I think if you were to pick between the 2 gifts, the mug would be cute and also practical.  Like you mentioned, your wife would be able to keep it in her classroom while she teaches.  Both gifts would be great though.  The sign would be perfect for her too, because it sounds like she wants another dog, lol.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment.


  5. I am a dog lover and I would be very happy if I would receive a dog mat on the Mother’s day. The cups you recommend are so cute. I would love those so much too. I didn’t know that there are hats and shirts for moms who are dog lovers. Wow, I have to admit that all of those products are so cute. I will definitely get one for myself and one of them for my sister.

    Thank you so much for sharing these dog lover products.

    • Hi Mary,

      I agree with you, that all the products listed are all cute and adorable.  It is hard to decide on just one.  The door mat is a great choice, a perfect welcome mat for visitors.  I hope that you and your sister enjoy the products, whatever you choose.

      Thank you for taking the time to comment.


  6. Howl-O, Jenny and thanks for these great gift ideas for “Dog Mothers” day.

    My wife has had dogs for pets all her life.  She is a true animal lover and Airdales were her favourite.  We currently have a 13-year-old terrier cross.

    It never really occurred to me that something like this would be an option.  Anyone of these gift ideas would be perfect for her so I will definitely be checking out the prices.

    Timely post, thanks,


    • Hi Wayne,

      I am so glad you enjoyed this post on Mother’s Day gifts for dog lovers.  Dog mother’s deserve some recognition too, I hope your wife appreciates that you are thinking of her.

      Thanks for your comment.


  7. Your blog came just in time. I was searching the web trying to find a gift for my mother who has everything but she will certainly appreciate the mother’s day gifts you have suggested here. I love all of those quote gifts but I think she will appreciate the adorable wine charms the most. Going to take a close look through your convenient link.

    • Thank you Paul for your comment. Mother’s who have everything are certainly hard to shop for. Glad you appreciated my suggestions, hope you are able to find something special.
